20T4G18Apic 18 To 26.5 GHz Broadband TWT Amplifier

130 Watts CW 18 To 26.5 GHz Broadband TWT Amplifier. The Model 130T18G26z5 is a self contained, forced air cooled, broadband traveling wave tube (TWT) microwave amplifier designed for applications where wide instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and moderate power output are required. A reliable TWT provides a conservative 130 watts minimum at the amplifier output connector


  • Continuing The Investment In Surface-Mount EMI Filters

    Many electronic component manufacturers are now focusing production efforts on high-volume commodity applications. As their specialty component production equipment ages, numerous companies are electing to divest in this type of production.

  • Filter Basics Part 5: Lumped Element and Distributed Element Filter Construction

    In this new Filter Basics Series, we are taking a step back to cover some background information on how filters do what they do. Regardless of the technology behind the filter, there are several key concepts that all filters share that we will dive into throughout this series. Part 5 dives into more detail on lumped element and distributed element filter construction techniques and when each option is most appropriate to use based on your application.

  • A Solution To Mission Critical Communications

    The ADRV9001 is part of a highly agile, user-configurable, new generation SDR IC transceiver family. It provides state-of-the-art RF performance with a set of advanced system features such as multichip synchronization (MCS), digital predistortion (DPD), dynamic profile switching (DPS), and fast frequency hopping (FFH). This article discusses the ADRV9001, Analog Devices’ newest generation software-defined radio (SDR) transceiver monolithic integrated circuit (IC) designed to provide scalable power and performance for many satellite, military, land mobile, utility infrastructure, and cellular mission critical communications.

  • Industry 4.0 From The Semiconductor Industry’s Perspective

    At present, a paradigm shift, referred to frequently as Industry 4.0—or Industrie 4.0 in Germany—is taking place. In international usage, terms like the (Industrial) Internet of Things, smart factory, or cyber physical (production) systems are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing. Industry 4.0 refers to the global trend toward the digitization and networking of the industrial value chain and its products.

  • High IF Sampling Puts Wideband Software-Defined Radio Within Reach

    Multiband radar and electronic warfare (EW) applications put a high value on wideband, high dynamic range, agile spectral monitoring. Increasingly higher sample rate data converters are allowing architecture changes to the radio front end that shrink size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), maintain performance, and evolve toward software programmable common hardware.
