A44EET_EURO_2_37x10_87_A44E.qxd 7/30/15 10:3 DC-DC CONVERTERS 34.4MHz to 4.4GHz RF signal generator/power detector 2V to 10,000 VDC Outputs The SynthNV from Saelig is a programmable 34.4MHz to 4.4GHz software-tunable 1-300 Watt Modules RF signal and sweep generator with a built-in RF power detector. It is controlled and powered from any device running Windows, Linux or Android OS via a USB port. Regulated/Proportional/Programmable The included onboard RF power detector can be used as a generic RF power meter Isolated/Single/Dual Outputs or combined with the SynthNV’s sweep function to create a basic RF network analyzer. When the RF signal generator High Reliability frequency is set, RF power can be measured in less Greater than 1,000,000 hrs. than 400uS. The SynthNV design also includes nonvolatile Mil Hbk 217F memory so it can be programmed to wake up with any frequency, • Military Upgrades Expanded operating temperature -55º to +85º C, no derating required • Environmental Screening Selected Screening, Mil Std 883 • ULTRA Miniature From 0.5" x 0.5" x 0.2" • Surface Mount/Thru-Hole • Custom Models • US Manufactured • AS 9100 Approved High Reliability AC/DC Power Supplies, Transformers and Inductors See PICO’s full line catalog at www.picoelectronics.com PICO Electronics,Inc. 143 Sparks Ave. Pelham, N.Y. 10803 E Mail: info@picoelectronics.com Pico Representatives Germany ELBV/Electronische Bauelemente Vertrieb E-mail: info@elbv.de Phone: 0049 89 4602852 Fax: 0049 89 46205442 England Ginsbury Electronics Ltd.

Controlled by easy-to-use open-source Labview GUI software, the SynthNV can be powered from a USB port or from an external 6 - 9V source. It can run all its features with or without a connected PC, its specifications include a 2.5ppm generator frequency accuracy, 150us generator lock time, 1kHz or smaller generator step size, phase noise of 93dBc/Hz at 1kHz offset and 117dBc/Hz at 100kHz offset with a 1GHz carrier (typical). Modulation capabilities include AM with sinusoid, ramp, sawtooth or programmable arbitrary waveforms, as well as Pulse Modulation with 1us minimum pulse width and resolution. Output power is +19dBm which can be adjusted in 0.5dB amplitude steps. The broadband RF power detector measurement time is only 200us, and it measures from -60dBm to +10dBm with 0.1dB resolution. Saelig www.saelig.com Thin, light GNS antenna is suitable for drones, wearables Antenova Ltd. (Hatfield, England), manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has developed an antenna it calls Sinica for use with the 1559MHz to 1609MHz satellite bands. The Sinica antenna, part number SR$G008, operates with all of the public satellite constellations - GPS, GLONASS, Baidou and Gallileo. It is made from FR4 materials and novel dielectric constant laminate substrates to provide a surface mount antenna in a package measuring 7.0mm by 5.8mm and just 0.4mm thick. It weighs 0.2 grams. Antenova Ltd. www.antenova-m2m.com Waveguide detectors cover the 26.5 to 110GHz range Pasternack is rolling out a brand new collection of high performance zero biased waveguide detectors that exhibit optimum performance in Ka, Q, U, V, E and W frequency bands. These waveguide detectors are widely deployed in various aerospace, defense and commercial wireless applications used in instrumentation, power detection, power monitoring, direct detection receivers, high frequency communications, radar, SATCOM, point-topoint radio, telecom, data links and R&D. The new range consists of 6 unique models covering a broad frequency range of 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz. The input ports use popular waveguide sizes ranging from WR-28 to WR-10, while the video output ports utilize SMA female connectors. The detector circuits use high performance GaAs Schottky Barrier Beam lead diodes with extremely low junction capacitance. These designs perform with minimal sensitivity variation resulting in a flat frequency response across the entire waveguide band. All the devices ar zero biased, so no external DC bias or mechanical tuning is required. The package designs utilize rugged steel construction and are thermally stable. Integrated waveguide connectors make the outline extremely compact. Performance is guaranteed over 0°C to +50°C. These detectors offer negative output voltage polarity for a variety of applications. Typical voltage sensitivity levels range from -600mV/mW to -3000 mV/mW. Pasternack www.pasternack.com www.electronics-eetimes.com Electronic Engineering Times Europe September 2015 45
