Products GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier covers DC to 20 GHz Custom MMIC is adding a driver amplifier, the CMD192C5, to its growing product library. The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the highly popular CMD192 amplifier that until now had only been available in die form. The CMD192C5 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier that operates from DC to 20 GHz and has a positive gain slope versus frequency. This design feature allows for the cascading of multiple amplifiers without the need for extra gain compensation circuitry. The amplifier delivers greater than 19 dB of gain with a corresponding output of 1 dB compression point of +25 dBm, and has a low noise figure of 1.9 dB at 10 GHz. The CMD192C5 is a 50 Ohm matched design, housed in a Pb-free, RoHs-compliant, 5x5 mm SMT package. Ideal applications for the CMD192C5 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fiber optics. www.CustomMMIC.com Embedded, pre-certified modems speed up design of specialized systems for M2M Telit Wireless Solutions has partnered with NimbeLink in order to speed up design of specialized systems for M2M applications. NimbeLink’s Skywire pre-certified embedded modems, which are based on the Telit xE910 family of modules, allow designers to incorporate cellular connectivity into their designs. The Skywire family starts with an embedded 2G CDMA 1xRTT product that claims to be the smallest embedded cellular modem on the market. It employs the Telit CE910-DUAL module that features a compact LGA package as well as the SMT form factor that is pin-to-pin compatible with the xE910 family. This allows products and systems to be designed once and be deployed globally. The modem is available with bundled CDMA 1xRTT data plans from leading carriers, allowing developers to add compliant cellular connectivity without having to apply for certification. Skywire is available with a complete development kit that includes the cellular modem, baseboard, antenna, power supply, debug cables, and cellular service plan. NimbeLink employs Skywire for use in its own TextAlert product, a multi-function cellular gateway for commercial and industrial applications. www.telit.com 2-W amplifier covers 1500 to 2700 MHz delivers over 40 dB of gain Freescale Semiconductor claims to offer the first 2-W integrated power amplifier operating with a 5-V supply and delivering more than 40 dB of gain to cover all frequency bands between 1500 MHz and 2700 MHz. The MMZ25333B supports any cellular standard operating at this frequency including GSM, 3G, 4G and LTE. The high gain MMZ25333B is suitable for driver and pre-driver applications in macrocell base stations, and final-stage applications in small cells. The high performance and integration of the PA help customers reduce part counts, streamline supply chains and optimize costs. Further, since the device can be used across multiple platforms and frequency bands, it can be reused from project to project, simplifying supply chain inventory. The MMZ25333B is a multi-stage power amplifier based on InGaP GaAs HBT technology and is housed in an industry-standard 4 mm QFN package. www.freescale.com/RFlowpower Microwave filters deliver high Q in small size As system designers are driven to miniaturise, many high performance designs are limited by the high Q requirements of filtering. High Q” proprietary techniques realised in high K materials by BSC allow filters to be produced in small physical footprint. The company uses a thin film foundry process that produces high levels of precision and repeatability with a broad operating temp of -55 to +125 °C. Applications covered will encompass L band to millimetre frequencies with varying topologies including diplexers, band-pass, notch, low-pass, high-pass and roofing. Products can be produced in open tile for direct die level integration or packaged foot prints for solder reflow. Features include small physical size, high Q, low loss, high temperature stability, and high selectivity options. www.bscfilters.com Microwave networking platform simplifies mobile operator networks The CTR 8000 microwave networking platform from Aviat Networks is designed to simplify mobile operator networks. The first product in the CTR family, the CTR 8540 microwave router includes a fully featured IP/MPLS router, making it ideal for advanced microwave backhaul. A purpose-built microwave router, the CTR 8540 features a powerful combination of microwave transport, Layer 2 Carrier Ethernet and Layer 3 IP/MPLS routing — all in one box. Aviat has already received orders for the CTR 8540 from Osnova Telecom of the Russian Federation and Entel in Chile. Deliveries are scheduled to commence within the coming weeks. According to Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks, the CTR 8540 combines the functionality of five separate devices and supports 50 percent more radio interfaces and twice as many Gigabit Ethernet ports as any other microwave platform and delivers 22 Microwave Engineering Europe March-April 2014 www.microwave-eetimes.com
