50 W DC-DC Converter
Crane Aerospace & Electronics introduced its Interpoint® MFX Series™ 50 W DC-DC
converter. The newly designed MFX Series provides up to 50 W in a 0.92 cubic inch case
with efficiency over 90%. The input voltage of 16 to 50 V can also withstand transients of
80 V for one second, has ±10% trimmable 3.3 and 5 V outputs and operates -55° to

PIN Diodes
The Eclipse EGP7000 series of PIN diodes are processed with a high resistivity epi that
have intrinsic layers ranging in thickness from 4 to 200 micron depending on performance
specifications. These diodes are made with a grown junction P++ layer that yields abrupt
junction structures that provide low punch through voltages and minimize autodoping.
They are available as chips or in your choice of 19 packages.

Wideband Power Dividers
Model D-1050-2 is a two-way power divider spanning 10 to 50 GHz. The maximum
insertion loss is less than 1.8 dB. Amplitude balance is 0.5 dB maximum and phase
balance is 5 degrees maximum. The minimum isolation is 16 dB and VSWR is 1.70:1
maximum. Connectors are 2.4 mm female. Housing size is 1.15" × 1.06" × 0.5".

QuarterBack Connector Series
SV Microwave released their new QuarterBack® series of SMP/SMPM connectors. The
line utilizes a quarter turn bayonet style coupling nut with a locking feature for standard
SMP/SMPM interfaces. The QuarterBack® connectors are ideal for high vibration and test
applications that require a large number of mating cycles.

Solid-State Hybrid Power Amplifier
Model 50HM1G6AB-47 is a compact, wideband, 50 W Class AB solid-state hybrid power
amplifier module that instantaneously covers 1 to 6 GHz. It operates from a single DC
voltage and provides 48 dB of typical gain with excellent gain flatness, noise figure and
low intermodulation distortion for military and wireless applications.

Low Noise GaN Amplifier
Custom MMIC announced the release of the CMD218, a 5 to 9 GHz low noise amplifier
(LNA) in die form, to its growing line of standard GaN products. The CMD218 offers a
gain of 22 dB, output of 1 dB, compression point of +19.5 dBm and noise figure of less
than 1.25 dB across 5 to 9 GHz. In addition, without an input limiter, the CMD218 can
survive high incident power levels up to 5 W with no degradation in performance.

900 to 940 MHz VCO
Crystek’s CVCO33CL-0900-0940 VCO operates from 900 to 940 MHz with a control
voltage range of 0.2 to 2 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -104 dBc/Hz at 10
KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +3 dBm. Engineered and
manufactured in the U.S., this new VCO is packaged in the industry standard 0.3" × 0.3"
SMD package. Input voltage is 3 V, with a max. current consumption of 20 mA. Pulling and pushing are
minimized to 8 MHz and 1 MHz/V, respectively.

Microwave Power Modules
In many military applications,stringent requirements for size and weight must be met
without sacrificing power performance. These high-efficiency, conduction-cooled
microwave power modules (MPM) provide extremely dense packaging across 2 to 40
