the resulting higher temperatures do not have a
negative effect on the cable due to the thermal stability of the PTFE tape dielectric.

RF (DC to 26.5
GHz) addition to
the VPX Platform? Check out
SV Microwave’s
latest high density, high performance VITA 67 product offering. SV’s floating
SMPM coaxial contacts ensure excellent RF performance in any mating condition. These parts are
also designed for side-by-side implementation
with VITA 46 hardware and can be cabled to 0.086
and smaller coaxial cable types. COTS options for
VITA 67.1 & 67.2 and custom configurations for
VITA 67.3 are available.

Surge Protection Products
performance lightning
protector series
provides exceptional protection
over the 100 to
700 MHz fre-
quency band addressing high power (up to 750 W)
single or multi channel applications. The DC
blocked design provides superior surge protection
while maintaining outstanding return loss and insertion loss performance. The white bronze plated
construction of the LP-HBX-N series eliminates
potential galvanic corrosion issues and provides
long life in hostile environments and the fully
weatherized housing is sealed to IP65 standards allowing for outdoor installation.

WhisperSyn Synthesizer
American Microwave
announced the first member of the new WhisperSyn
product line, the model
PSYN-06510-100. Whispersyn technology offers
superior low phase noise and fast switching synthesizer technology. This compact package offers
wide bandwidth coverage of 0.65 to 10 GHz, fast
switching time of <100 µsec, excellent resolution
of 0.001 Hz and super low phase noise.

3200 MHz VCO
Crystek’s CVCO55CC-3200-3200 VCO operates at 3200 MHz with a control voltage range
of 0.5 to 4.5 V. This VCO features a typical
phase noise of -112 dBc/Hz of 10 KHz offset
and has excellent linearity. Output power
CVCO55CC-3200-3200 is packaged in the
industry-standard 0.5" × 0.5"
SMD package.
Input voltage is 8
V, with a max.
consumption of 30
mA. Pulling and
pushing are minimized to 3 MHz and 0.1 MHz/V, respectively.
Second harmonic suppression is -12 dBc typical.
Crystek Corp.,
Microlithic Doubler
The MLD-1640 is the
first multiplier available
using Microlithic technology. It offers an input range of 8 to 20
GHz and an output
range of 16 to 40 GHz. The Microlithic design
technique allowed us to increase the fundamental suppression by over 10 dB to a typical 33 dB
suppression across the band. Designers will be
able to significantly relax the filtering requirements on their high frequency LO generation
chains. It comes in a standard 0.152" × 0.090"
Microlithic chip or connectorized S package.
Marki Microwave Inc.,
Free Running DRO
Mesa Microwave introduced a free running
dielectric resonator oscillator (DRO). This
DRO operates at a fre-
quency of 4.3 GHz, +15 dBm, -55° to +85°C.
Frequencies up to 40 GHz are available.
Mesa Microwave Corp.,
High Performance Synthesizer
Synergy’s low phase noise synthesizer model
LFSW170225-1M offers wideband coverage from
+5 V supplies. The close-in phase noise is -102 dBc
at 1 kHz through 10 kHz offset and –123 dBc at
100 kHz offset. It also provides buffered output
power of +5 dBm (min), spurious suppression of
75 dB (typ.), and harmonics of 25 dB (typ). The
frequency is varied in 10 MHz steps. This great
performance is packaged in a small 1.25" × 1.00"
× 0.230" housing (RoHS compliant).
Synergy Microwave Corp.,
Fixed Frequency Synthesizer
Z-Communications Inc.
announced a fixed frequency synthesizer in
the X-Band. The SFS11800C-LF is a single
frequency synthesizer
that operates at 11.8
GHz with a 10 MHz reference and features a typical phase noise of -90 dBc/Hz and -120 dBc/Hz at
the 10 kHz and 100 kHz offsets, respectively. It is
designed to deliver a typical output power of 3
dBm with a VCO voltage supply of 5 VDC while
drawing 90 mA (typical) and a phase locked loop
voltage of 3 VDC while drawing 11 mA (typical).
Z-Communications Inc.,
