NANO Series Wi-Fi Diplexer
3H Communication Systems’ new NANO series switch filter banks offer multiple switched
channels (up to 8) from 50 MHz to 18 GHz. Switched filter banks are available in leadless
surface-mount or RF pins. 3H’s SFBs are designed and manufactured in accordance to the
customers’ electrical and environmental requirements and can be used for military or
commercial application. The company utilizes its micro and nano filter technology to offer
the smallest possible size for its switched filter banks.

PIM Fixed Attenuators and Terminations
Cobham Weinschel’s low PIM products offer a rugged construction low profile design free
of solder joints that covers DC to 6.5 GHz, with power handling up to 175 W average and
IM3 levels as low as -150 dBc output and -120 dBc reflected dependent on dB value.
Model 254 is available in 10, 20, 30 and 40 dB. Other features include quality connectors
with special high temperature support beads and choice of Type N or SMK (2.92 mm).

Space Qualified Isolator
DiTom Microwave released a new Ku-Band (10.70 to 12.75 GHz) space qualified isolator.
The DS1009 is manufactured to meet or exceed environmental space-level reliability
including thermal shock, sine and random vibration, temperature cycling and thermal
vacuum survivability over a specified qualification and acceptance test plan. The
company’s current space level manufacturing process allows for delivery in as quickly as 4
weeks depending on the test requirements.

MHz to 40 GHz frequency range. These products are ideal replacements for the
conventional shunt mounted chip and series mounted beam lead PIN diode normally used
in the manufacture of broadband microwave switches.
Digital Receiver
The V602 digital receiver supports one or two plug-in XMC modules, each featuring 128
independent channels of DDC embedded in the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. It supports capture
and recording of wideband data directly from the ADCs or down-converted data from up
to 256 channels modulated on the IF band. The receiver can do contiguous recording at
1600 MB/s until running out of disk space. Download data sheets and pricing now.
Innovative Integration
GaN SSPA Powers Ku-Band Block Up-Converter
The model MFC147 from TRAK Microwave provides 13.75 to 14.5 GHz coverage for
civilian and military aviation Ku-Band SATCOM applications, including In-Flight
Entertainment (IFE) systems and UAV communications. The unit features a ruggedized
design and innovative thermal management technique to withstand challenging airborne
environments utilizing SMT construction with no open die. Input frequency to the block up-converter (BUC)
is 950 to 1700 MHz, with Ku-Band output of +12 to +17 dBm.

Voltage-Controlled Oscillator
Crystek’s CVCO55CCQ-3500-3500 voltage-controlled oscillator operates at 3500 MHz
with a control voltage range of 0.3 to 4.9 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of
-115 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +6
dBm. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, the model CVCO55CCQ-3500-3500 is
packaged in the industry-standard 0.5" × 0.5" SMD package. Input voltage is typically 5 V,
with a typical current consumption of 27 mA.
Miniature Footprint Fast Tuning VCO
This miniature size, fast tuning VCO model DCO5260-3 operates from 520 to 600 MHz
over a 3 V tuning range with only a +3 V bias. Key features include a planar resonator
construction, an output power of 0 dBm (minimum), a harmonic suppression of 10 dB
(typical) and low phase noise performance of -105 dBc/Hz (typical) at 10 kHz and -125
dBc/Hz (typical) at 100 kHz offsets.
