60 to 90 GHz Feed Horn Antenna

Model SAF-6039031340-141-S1-122-DP is a dual polarized, WR-12 scalar feed horn antenna assembly that covers several popular 5G bands in the frequency range of 60 to 90 GHz. The antenna features an integrated orthomode transducer (OMT) that provides high port isolation and cross-polarization cancellation and a broad band scalar horn that provides low sidelobe levels. The OMT enables the antenna to separate a circular or elliptical polarized waveform into two linear, orthogonal waveforms or vice versa. The dual polarized horn also supports either vertical or horizontal polarized waveguide forms with more than 30 dB cross polarization rejections.

71 to 76 GHz E Band Junction Isolator & Circulator

Model SNW-7137630818-12-I1 is an E band waveguide junction isolator that covers the frequency range of 71 to 76 GHz. Compared with a Faraday isolator, the waveguide junction isolator offers at insertion loss of 0.8 dB typical and a much shorter insertion length for system integration. As a tradeoff, the waveguide junction isolator only offers a nominal isolation of 18 dB. Model SNW-7137630818-12-C1 is an E band, waveguide junction circulator that covers the frequency range of 71 to 76 GHz.

Multicoax Connector

Amphenol Ardent Concepts has released a new form factor of its TR Multicoax connector. The connector was designed specifically for solving signal integrity issues caused by serpentine trace routing from high speed devices. TR Equal Trace delivers superior signal integrity from multiple high-speed channels in an arched footprint, making it ideal for applications where equal and short trace lengths are imperative for performance tuning. In these cases, TR Equal Trace can eliminate the need to create complicated serpentine traces, helping to ensure signals reach their destination at the same time in data and clock routing for peak performance. The tight pitch of TR Equal Trace gets the connector closer to the device to reduce signal loss.

Wirewound Ferrite Beads

Coilcraft offers a broad range of wirewound ferrite beads in standard package sizes from 0201 (0603) to 1812 (4532). Superior attenuation and frequency performance enable smaller solution sizes compared to traditional thick-film chip ferrite beads. Ferrite beads are used as low pass filters to eliminate high frequency noise while allowing low frequency signals or DC current to pass through a circuit. Coilcraft wirewound ferrite beads feature a ferrite construction and heavy gauge wire for high current handling. They provide extremely low DCR while maintaining high filtering impedance across a wide bandwidth – up to GHz band.

BGA Socket Design

Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new BGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GT-BGA-2086 socket is designed for 21x21 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The socket is designed to dissipate few watts using compression screw and can be customized up to 300 watts with modified fin design on top of the screw and adding axial flow fan. The contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by.

Fully Differential Amplifiers/ADC Drivers

Analog Devices announced the LTC6363-0.5, LTC6363-1 and LTC6363-2 Precision, Fixed-Gain, Fully Differential Amplifiers, creating a family of ultra-precision fixed-gain variants of the successful LTC6363 amplifier. The new offerings are available in fixed gains of 0.5, 1 and 2V/V which provide flexibility when scaling inputs to the full range of ADCs. The precision resistors, which are integrated in LTC6363-0.5, LTC6363-1 and LTC6363-2, have been designed with overall system performance in mind, striking a balance between noise and linearity, and utilizing laser trimmed factory calibration to achieve a level of precision which is difficult and costly to achieve discretely.

Auto Radar Echo Generator

The R&S AREG100A automotive radar echo generator reliably tests radar sensors in the 24 GHz ISM band and in the E band at 77 GHz or 79 GHz. It simulates echoes of up to four artificial target objects at fixed distances. User-configurable Doppler offsets can optionally be applied to simulate radial movement of the objects. The R&S AREG100A is a future-proof solution for testing advanced long-range and short-range radars. It supports bandwidths up to 4 GHz in the E band and can simulate objects at a minimum distance of 4 m if the distance between the frontend and the DUT is 80 cm. With this approach, Rohde & Schwarz offers its customers an extraordinary degree of test flexibility, from simple to complex.
