Parabolic Antenna

KP Performance Antennas released a new series of ProLine 11 GHz parabolic antennas that are ideal for high-density, point-to-point backhaul applications or client-premises.

KP’s new high-performance ProLine parabolic antennas operate in the 10.7 GHz to 11.7 GHz frequency range. They are offered in 2-foot and 3-foot diameters and deliver gain performance of 34.4 dBi and 39 dBi respectively. These antennas are engineered to suppress side-lobes and back-lobes and are excellent at rejecting interference. They feature rugged construction with a patented 6-point mounting connection for set-and-forget installation.

Monopulse Cassegrain Antenna

Model SAY-3433632750-28-U5-MP is a Monopulse Cassegrain antenna that operates from 34 to 36 GHz, and has a half power beamwidth of 5.0 degrees. The antenna offers a nominal gain of 27 dBi in the Sum Port, and 21 dBi in the H-Port and V-Port. The antenna has three WR-28 waveguides with UG-599/U compatible flanges, which are designated as Sum Port, V-Port, and H-Port. The antenna can support linear polarized waveforms and is designed and manufactured for indoor applications.

SAGE Millimeter

Spectrum Analyzer Extension Modules

OML can extend the frequency range of your existing spectrum analyzer to millimeter wave frequencies with our single diode unbalanced harmonic mixers. Harmonic mixers are available for the waveguide bands between 18 and 325 GHz. These frequency extension modules are compatible with most spectrum analyzers that offer optional external mixer access. By substituting the harmonic mixer for the existing microwave input, you can expand your spectrum analyzer frequency coverage for millimeter wave measurements.


3.5mm Precision In-Series Adapters 

Frequency Range: DC to 34 GHz / Phase matched adapters Low VSWR and insertion loss (1.25:1 Max / Typically under 1.18:1) Mechanically compatible with SMA & 2.92mm connector series Ruggedized construction for repeatability and reliability

QFN Socket Design

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new QFN socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 60+ GHz, very low inductance for ATE applications. The GTP-QFN-1001 socket is designed for 5.9x5.9 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 60+ GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by.
