Amplifier manufacturers have long compared the advantages and disadvantages of solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs). Every few years, there is typically a technology advance that gives a slight advantage to one technology over the other. This paper shows how the modular design of SSPAs can provide dramatically higher levels of system reliability than TWTAs.
This datasheet includes specifications for Corry Micronics' ceramic resonator type coaxial diplexer. This diplexer covers the 225 Mhz to 3,000 MHz frequency range and has a .5dB to 2dB (typical) insertion loss, 1.5:1 (typical) return loss, 2 to 8 pole rejection, and much more.
New Low PIM Attenuator From JFW!
This low PIM fixed attenuator covers the 698-2700 MHz frequency range and is available in 5, 6, 10, 20, and 30 dB attenuation values. It has a +0.75 db maximum attenuation accuracy, and a+0.5 db typical attenuation accuracy. Like other attenuators, it’s ideal for applications involving signal conditioning and level control.
