Direct Reading Attenuator

SAGE Millimeter now offers full waveguide band high performance direct reading attenuators in W, E, and V Band. Model STA-60-10-D8 is an instrumentation grade, high precision and high attenuation range direct reading, rotary vane attenuator for use in millimeter wave test set across the standard W-band frequency range of 75 to 110 GHz. It has a large scale calibrated dial which indicates the attenuation value directly. The attenuator is an ideal piece of equipment in waveguide systems where a broad direct reading of attenuation is required. It exhibits exceptional repeatability during frequent attenuation setting operations.

App Note

A new application note and business impact case study detail how Quasonix used a novel design flow combining NI AWR software and highly accurate Modelithics models to achieve first-pass success. The flow resulted in a 150-percent improvement in productivity for the design of a power amplifier (PA) used in the company’s advanced telemetry systems. Developers of telemetry products must ensure excellent agreement between simulations and performance to be confident about their efforts to optimize these designs prior to manufacturing.

Permanent Magnet YIG-Tuned Oscillators

Permanent magnet technology delivers our lowest DC voltage (prime power) available and is offered in 2 to 20 GHz standard models and in high performance models up to 44 GHz using frequency doublers. Our surface mount MLSMO and MLOTF series and TO-8 MLTO oscillators are extremely small and offer excellent phase noise and frequency stability. They’re the perfect choice for next generation PXI and compact PCI synthesizer applications.

Signal/Spectrum Analyzer: 2 GHz Internal Analysis Bandwidth

Rohde & Schwarz is expanding the internal analysis bandwidth of its R&S FSW high-end signal and spectrum analyzer up to 2 GHz by introducing the new R&S FSW-B2001 option. This test solution enables R&D users to investigate wideband signals in detail without the need for an external digitizer.

The R&S FSW-B2001 option provides 14-bit ADC resolution and wide dynamic range, characterized by excellent SFDR figures, for example -65 dBc for 1200 MHz bandwidth. This translates directly into outstanding signal analysis performance.
