Fairview releases waveguide frequency multipliers
GaAs and GaN MMIC devices cover 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz
Fairview Microwave has released a new series of waveguide frequency multipliers to address 5G, test-and-measurement, mobile and satellite communications, radar systems, research and development, and weather and earth observation applications.
The new series of in-stock, waveguide frequency multipliers covers 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz, including popular mmWave waveguide bands: Ka, U, V, E and W.
The waveguide frequency multipliers are engineered with GaAs and GaN MMIC semiconductor technology for lower conversion loss. They provide output power from +10 dBm to +20 dBm. They feature DC voltages from +6 Vdc to +15 Vdc and allow input frequency multiplication ranges from two times to six times the output.
Fairview’s frequency multipliers also feature female SMA connectors and offer highly efficient performance in a small package.
The new line ensures reliable, all-weather performance. They operate at temperatures from -40 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit, under exposure to 95 percent relative humidity, and up to an altitude of 10,000 feet. They are tough and compact with military-grade, gold-plated aluminium waveguide package designs.
“Fairview’s waveguide frequency multipliers are useful for developing lower frequency signals with lower-power and lower-cost devices in a microwave frequency band, and then multiplying to generate an output signal to your desired mmWave frequency,” said Tim Galla, product line manager.
