Low Noise Amp: Wearables

Skyworks introduced the SKY65623-682LF, a low noise amplifier (LNA) designed for applications such as wearables, asset trackers, navigation devices, action cameras and more. This discrete LNA is optimized to operate from 1559 to 1606 MHz, has a very low current (1 mA @ 1.8 V supply) and single power supply (1.5 to 3.6 V range) for design flexibility and simplicity. The device’s broad frequency range covers GPS L1, GLONASS, Galileo and Compass navigation systems and it minimizes external components thereby reducing the bill of materials for OEMs. The SKY65623-682LF comes in an extremely compact form factor (5L QFN 0.8 x0.8 mm package), ideal for low-power Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Stand-Alone RF Signal Generator with USB Support

DS Instruments introduces the SG6000LX, a compact and economical Dual Channel RF Signal Generator covering 25MHz to 6GHz. Output power is independently adjustable on each channel in 0.5dB steps and with a vernier setting. The USB port is configured as power source and industry standard COM port requiring no special drivers for remote operation.

Available in a 2220 case size, these X7R dielectric capacitors offer the user the option of greater total capacitance on the board, or piece part count reduction. For example, they can take the place of 2 x 4.7nF X1/Y2 capacitors connected in parallel to reduce component count, size and weight - leading to a significant reduction in cost.  Knowles high voltage capacitor expertise means this range offers the highest capacitance / widest range available for a class X1/Y2 250Vac surface mount MLCC.

Cross Directional Couplers

Wenteq Microwave’s WCC series Cross Directional Couplers are for signals coupling in a waveguide system. There are two oblique cross holes in the common wall of the two crossed waveguides. The coupling port is the one closer to the first hole on the cross section from main transmitting path. Another end of the coupling waveguide should be terminated with a matching load. This series offers standard coupling level of 23dB. Custom designs are offered to cover frequency from 1.7 to 110GHz, with the coupling level 15 - 30dB.
