Teledyne E2v HiRel Announces 25 GHz Frequency Doubler
Company continues push into high reliability RF solutions for signal chain applications in demanding space environments
Teledyne e2v HiRel, part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, has announced the latest addition to its rapidly expanding line of RF solutions, a new RF GaAs MMIC Frequency Doubler.
Launching Teledyne e2v HiRel's new frequency multiplier product line, the active doubler, TDFM001000, is designed for high reliability signal chain applications in Space. It is particularly well-suited specifically for satellite transponders, transmit/receive modules, microwave-based communications, millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, and related processes.
DFM001000 is a 7.5-25.0 / 15.0-50.0 GHz single ended input (no external balun required) GaAs MMIC Doubler with a +15.0 dBm output drive. It is an LO doubler that can be used to drive fundamental mixer devices. It uses a GaAs PHEMT device model technology and is based upon electron beam lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity.
“This is the first frequency multiplier released by Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics and is the latest addition to our rapidly growing portfolio of high reliability RF solutions for aerospace and defense,” said Mont Taylor, VP of business development for Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics. “We will be introducing several new standard RF building block solutions in the months ahead to supplement our other lines including amplifiers, LNAs, PAs, DVGAs, DSAs, limiters, mixers, prescalers, PLLs, switches, and more.”
Other features include: single ended input doubler with distributed buffer amplifier; 100 percent on-wafer RF, dc and output power testing; and 100 percent visual inspection to MIL-STD-883 Method 2010.
