Source-Leveling Power Sensor

LadyBug announced an analog output option for simpler, faster calibration. While power sensor calibration and verification can be cumbersome and time-consuming, the process can be simplified and automated by using a leveling loop, which feeds the power level back to the source’s analog level control input from a LadyBug LB589A power sensor using its recorder output. This eliminates the need for manual level adjustment.

Web Exclusives



The comprehensive search engine on the AmpliTech website has been significantly revamped to not only allow for searches based on particular specifications, but to offer results that are closest to the entered parameters (within certain ranges) if a search by the exact specifications yields no matches. In addition, searching for a particular model number (in lieu of a search by specifications) has been made easier due to the ability to search for partials in case the customer doesn’t have the entire exact model number handy. More versatility has also been added by allowing searches just by using either a Start OR Stop frequency as opposed to both. For example, the user can simply enter 10 GHz for the Start frequency and leave the Stop frequency blank to see all models whose bandwidth starts at 10 GHz or higher.


Insulated Wire

Insulated Wire’s Microwave Products Division announced a new distribution agreement with HASCO Inc. for the Re‐Flex™ product range.
