Pasternack Introduces 8 To 46 GHz Active Frequency Multipliers
New off-the-shelf series uses GaAs PHEMT MMIC technology
Pasternack, a US provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has released a new series of active frequency multipliers that simplify system designs by offering high output power levels.
These active frequency multipliers are building block components used in local oscillator (LO) chains for radar, communication receivers and frequency sources to extend frequencies and achieve optimal performance. They support multiple markets and applications including electronic warfare, electronic countermeasures, point-to-point radio, VSAT radio, test instrumentation and telecom infrastructure.
The PE88X-series active frequency (x2) multipliers double input frequencies ranging from 4 GHz to 23 GHz up to desirable mm-wave output frequencies from 8 GHz to 46 GHz.
"Pasternack's new series of active frequency multipliers give designers the capability to double input frequencies up to 8 to 46 GHz millimeter wave bands. These designs utilise efficient GaAs PHEMT semiconductor technology in compact coaxial packages that generate up to +17 dBm output power which can eliminate the need for additional external components in system level applications," said Tim Galla, active components product manager at Pasternack. "Active multipliers usually require long manufacturing cycles, but Pasternack offers all three models ready to ship right off the shelf."
The multipliers require a single +5V DC supply. Input/output RF ports are matched for 50 ohms and are DC blocked. The compact drop-in package assemblies are hermetically sealed and support field replaceable 2.92mm connectors. All models are RoHS and Reach compliant and designed to meet MIL-STD environmental test conditions.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
