Two-Channel Transmitter

Ancortek launched a new advanced software-defined two-channel transmitter and four-channel receiver radar kit SDR-KIT 2400T2R4 (see Figure 1) to support digital phased-array beamforming and MIMO capabilities. The new SDR-KIT 2400T2R4 is designed for applications in direction of arrival (DOA) measurement, radar interferometry, digital beamforming, and MIMO radar. It is especially suitable for monitoring human activities, occupancy sensing, gesture sensing, and 3-D imaging among other uses.

Relay Switches

Fairview’s new line of electromechanical relay switches consists of 44 different +12V and +28V designs offered in SPDT, SP3T, SP4T and SP6T configurations that support either latching, failsafe or normally open actuators with usable features such as indicators, terminations or TTL logic. They operate in frequency ranges from DC to 26.5 GHz and feature a D-SUB multi-pin connector interface for secure and reliable DC voltage and command control functions. These switches are designed to be compact and rugged, supporting N-type or SMA connectors. Typical performance includes 90 dB isolation levels and 0.15 dB insertion loss. Power handling capability is rated up to 600 watts.

LNAs

Pasternack’s new line of input-protected low-noise amplifiers consists of 12 different models that cover a broad range of frequency bands from 10 MHz to 3.5 GHz. These designs exhibit typical performance that includes low noise figure levels from 0.8 to 1.6 dB, high-small signal gain ranging from 25 to 40 dB, and low VSWR levels from 1.3:1 to 1.5:1. This performance is achieved through the use of hybrid MIC designs that incorporate PIN diode limiter circuitry and Enhancement mode (Emode) GaAs pHEMT semiconductor devices. These amplifiers operate with a bias voltage of +12V typical over the temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The 50 Ohm, SMA connectorized modules are unconditionally stable, include built-in voltage regulation and have DC blocking capacitors on the RF ports.
