KCB Solutions Product Announcement: KCB191

Amplitude Technical Sales is pleased to announce the KCB Solutions release of the KCB191DC to 3 GHz SPDT high power switch. This switch is based on discrete PIN diode technology and offers high power handling and low insertion loss in a compact 5MM square hermetic QFN package which is well suited for Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) assembly for Defense and Commercial applications. Built on a highly thermally conductive Aluminum Nitride (AlN) substrate, this switch is ideal in applications where low loss combined with moderate adjacent port isolation is required. In addition, the thick copper under metal provides higher bias current handling and better heat transfer than traditional metallization schemes. High power diodes have been chosen to provide the optimum blend of loss, isolation and harmonic performance.

Features:
 High Frequency Operation to 3 GHz
 Low Insertion Loss: 0.5 dB typical
 Low VSWR: 1.5:1 typical
 Ruggedized 5 MM QFN-Style High Power Package
 RoHS Compliant

How to Order: Please visit http://kcbsolutions.com/rfq/ and send us your request for additional information, pricing and availability. An Application Engineer will be in touch to provide you with any additional support you may need for your application.

Free Webinar: Mixers and Frequency Conversion

When: Tuesday, May 20th at 11:00 AM ET

Where: Presented online by Microwave Journal.  Register now at: http://www.microwavejournal.com/events/1225

Speaker: Allen Podell, IEEE Life Fellow

Presentation Abstract:

Frequency conversion is a critical function in all wireless systems. A key component used to accomplish this is the mixer. Designers need to understand different mixer topologies and specifications in order to meet their system requirements. This webinar provides a brief overview of frequency conversion and introduces the mixer as the component used to accomplish this function.  Areas to be covered include:

· RF system architectures
· How many conversions?
· How to convert? What is a mixer figure of merit?
· Passive diode mixers versus passive FET mixers
· Monolithic silicon active mixer issues
· Comparing mixer specifications
· Design sverview

Who Should Attend: Engineers, managers, and program managers interested in frequency conversion and mixers.  Students also welcome!

Mini-Circuits is pleased to sponsor this informative webinar as part of our ongoing commitment to support our customers and friends in the industry with valuable information.  We hope you will join us for this educational online presentation.

Registration is now open for the May 20th webinar.

SynQor High Voltage NiQor Products

SynQor Expands Its Portfolio of High Voltage NiQor Products with the Release of the NQ60W60HGC40 Non-isolated Converter

SynQor, Inc. introduces the latest release in the High Voltage NiQor family of non-isolated buck boost converters with the NQ60W60HGC40. The new NQ60W60HGC40 will operate over a continuous input voltage range of 9-60V. The output voltage is set by using only a single resistor or voltage source, permitting the user to create a customizable output voltage from 0-60Vdc. The broad input and output voltage range satisfies many requirements in industrial, medical and communications markets. The input or output current can be as high as 40A.

The NQ60W60HGC is highly efficient, achieving up to 95%, allowing more usable power to be realized from the converter in realistic system environments. The module features built-in current sharing, clock synchronization and adjustable current limit with current monitor that makes it suitable for battery charging applications.

This user configurable HVNiQor product is particularly useful for applications in high power systems that do not require input to output isolation in the converter or where traditional DC-DC converters do not meet system requirements for power density, efficiency or volume. The NQ60 provides new options for customer requirements that cannot be met with other standard off-the-shelf converters, or where the cost and timeframe usually associated with custom supplies is prohibitive.

Please also look for the release of the NQ90W90HGC26 (9-90Vin, 0-90Vout) next month, as well as military grade versions of these products.

SynQor’s High Voltage NiQor products are all available for immediate sampling and purchase. Datasheets, white papers and other information are available on SynQor’s website, www.synqor.com.
