Frequency Extender

Model STE-KF406-00-S1 is a D-Band X4 frequency extender that uses an input frequency range of 27.5 to 42.5 GHz at +5 dBm along with harmonic generation and filtering to produce a 110 to 170 GHz RF signal at -3 dBm. The extender is designed and manufactured as a bench top unit to extend the low frequency synthesizer or sweeper without losing all of the functionalities and features. The extender also features adjustable legs to allow for an easy test set up.

Microwave Transceiver

Norden Millimeter introduced the NUDC2-18/1.3-2.3 Wideband Microwave Transceiver in a low-SWaP 3U module. The NUDC2-18/1.3-2.3 is a dual conversion Transceiver providing 2-18 GHz operation in a versatile OpenVPX platform The NUDC2-18/1.3-2.3 includes internal LOs which provide an instantaneous IF bandwidth of 1 GHz and exceptional Noise Figure: Down Converter NF= 6dB max, Up Converter NF=15dB max. Both the RF and IF paths include variable attenuation. The NUDC2-18/1.3-2.3 is digitally controlled by RS-485. This 2-18 GHz Wideband Transceiver 3U Module is one of the many new and products at Norden Millimeter.

Tech Brief: YIG-Tuned Bandpass and Band-Reject Filters

Using small conductive “loops,” a YIG filter is coupled to and from a YIG sphere’s resonant magnetic field. The closer the loop, the wider the bandwidth. Bandwidth can also be expanded by increasing the number of YIG resonators and carefully “tuning” the RF coupling loops. In this brief, RF engineers will learn the three basic methods in which this coupling is applied: signal transfer; signal reflection; and oscillation feedback, and how this differentiates a bandpass from a band-reject filter.
