Pulse Profiling Power Sensor

LadyBug Technologies’ 20 GHz thermally stable LB680A USB pulse profiling power sensor is in stock for immediate shipment. The sensor is available with optional connectors so that the user can place it directly on the DUT to achieve the best match and accuracy.

In addition to the time domain pulse profile trace, the sensor will perform statistical functions such as CDF, CCDF & PDF. ATE users will appreciate the statistical peak and pulse measurements that can be made with virtually no setup.

Modular Assembly Expandable to 192 Attenuators

Many of today’s RF test labs require the ability to expand testing capacity for future needs. JFW Model 50PA-1068 is an attenuator assembly that meets that requirement. The 50PA-1068 is a controller module which can be connected up to as many as 8 attenuator modules. The SMA version has 24 attenuators per module and the N attenuator module has 12.

Isolators, Circulators

Cernexwave’s CSC and CSI series SMT isolators and circulators are offered to cover the frequency range of UHF to 18 GHz. These isolators and circulators are designed and manufactured to provide low insertion loss and high isolation for SMT component and module integrations. The 50Ω input and output SMT line configuration is immediately ready for circuit insertion. While the isolator is an important device where port isolation or VSWR is concerned, the circulator offers duplexing functions in many radar and communication systems.


Power Amp

Qorvo's QPA2610 is a packaged, high performance power amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production 0.15 um GaN on SiC process (QGaN15). Covering 8.5 - 10.5 GHz, the QPA2610 provides > 2 W of saturated output power and 23 dB of large-signal gain while achieving an impressive 47% power-added efficiency.


Power Sensor with Direct TTL Connectivity

LadyBug Technologies’ LB5944A new self-contained thermally stabilized power sensor delivers accurate first tier NIST traceability directly to a microcontroller, FPGA or other device. The sensor utilizes the company’s patented No-Zero No-Cal before use technology which allows it to make accurate measurements from its -60 dBm noise floor up to +26 dBm with no drift or measurement interruption. All this with no computer or power meter attached.
