1801 HFE MM Wave 01

Waveguide Cable 

Model SCW-1212006-S1-F is a 6” long WR-12 waveguide cable. The frequency range of the waveguide cable is 60 to 90 GHz. It allows for varied orientations of waveguide to waveguide connections. The cable has a typical insertion loss of 3.5 dB and a nominal VSWR of 1.5:1. It is flexible with maximum bend radius of 0.20”. Other lengths are offered under different model numbers such as SCW-1010006-S1-F and SCW-1515006-S1-F.

Model SWH-QC-0750C-R2 is a waveguide quick connect apparatus designed and manufactured for 0.75” circular flanges’ quick connect and disconnect operation primarily. The quick connect allows for fast mating of two flanges and clamping them by easy turning of the hand screws. It is designed to be used for UG-385/U, UG-387/U, and UG-387/U-M flanges and is intended for lab or sub-assembly use where frequent connect and disconnect are encountered. In addition, it is also designed for sub-assemblies and lab setups where insufficient room is available for standard connections using waveguide screws.

Cable Assemblies

Amphenol RF is pleased to introduce a line of SMA fixed length cable assemblies on LMR-195 and LMR-240 cables. This full Amphenol solution combines precision machined Amphenol RF SMA connectors with high performing LMR cables developed by Times Microwave, an Amphenol company. These pre-configured cable assemblies are designed to offer a lower loss option with superior electrical performance to standard cables.

1801 HFE MM Wave 04


OML introduced millimeter wave (mm-wave) intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements to target emerging gigabit applications such as WirelessHD, WiGig, 802.11ad and E-band point-to-point radios. In these applications, the linearity of amplifiers and transceivers can adversely affect bit error rate, especially those involving higher order modulation. Due to waveguide constraints, IMD has been nearly non-existent on the millimeter wave frontier until now. For the first time, OML can thoroughly characterize mm-wave devices for S-parameters, gain compression, and IMD.

Frequency Synthesizer 

The Luxyn frequency synthesizer features high-speed tuning from 50 MHz to 21 GHz in frequency steps as small as 0.001 Hz in a package that is only 4.0 × 3.6 × 0.9 in. and weighs only 15 oz. It is literally a fit for a wide range of applications, from broadband communications systems to test-and-measurement equipment. It provides spectrally pure output signals that can feed most measurement applications.

1801 HFE MM Wave 07


RFMW, Ltd. announced design and sales support for ParkerVision’s direct conversion quadrature demodulator/modulator designed for communication systems requiring excellent linearity with the lowest possible power consumption. Drawing only 23mA from a 3V supply, the PV5870 consumes 1/5th to 1/10th the power of similar demodulators yet provides superior noise figure performance (a 6dB improvement over the nearest competitor). As a demodulator operating from 400 – 3600MHz, the PV5870 offers excellent amplitude and phase balance and very low DC offset.

Ku-Band Mixer

DS Instruments introduces the MX20000, a Ku-Band mixer with integrated programmable local oscillator. USB powered and controlled, the MX20000 with its low-phase-noise LO provides simple up and down-converting for applications including satellite link testing. The USB serial port requires no drivers or API, only simple text commands.

1801 HFE MM Wave 09


Pasternack’s 20 new phase locked oscillator models are offered with popular fixed output frequencies of 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000 and 6000 MHz. Typical performance for these PLOs includes excellent phase noise of -105 dBc/Hz at 10 KHz offset, a buffered output power level of +7 dBm and low second harmonic and spurious suppression levels of -25 dBc and -70 dBc respectively. They require an external frequency reference of either 10 MHz or 100 MHz and feature a TTL lock detect output to signal an out-of-lock condition.
