E Band Externally Biased Quadrature Mixer

Model SFQ-60390315-1212SF-E1-M is an E Band quadrature mixer that covers the frequency range of 60 to 90 GHz. The typical conversion loss of the quadrature mixer is 15 dB with an LO driving power of +10 dBm. The typical LO to RF port isolation is 40 dB. Since the IF port of the quadrature mixer is DC coupled, the mixer can be used as a phase detector. In addition, the mixer can be readily configured into an image rejection mixer or single sideband modulator by adding an IF quadrature coupler.

170 to 260 GHz Faraday Isolator                                                               

Model STF-04-S1 is a full band Faraday isolator that operates from 170 to 260 GHz. The Faraday isolator is constructed with a longitudinal, magnetized ferrite rod that causes a Faraday rotation of the incoming RF signal. The Faraday isolator offers 30 dB typical isolation and 4.0 dB nominal insertion loss with good flatness. The return loss of the isolator is 15 dB. The input and output ports are WR-04 waveguides with UG-387/U-M flanges.

Transceiver: Radar, Aerospace, Defense

NI announced the FPGA-enabled PXIe-5785 FlexRIO transceiver, which aims to shorten the design cycle for advanced radar applications in aerospace and defense. Advances in the use of the electromagnetic spectrum continue to drive military electronics to stay ahead of emerging threats. This evolution brings new challenges for the engineers and scientists designing and testing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems.

Cable Assemblies

Pasternack introduced a new line of military-grade MIL-DTL-17 RF cable assemblies that are ideal for avionics, military electronics, satellite ground stations and autonomous vehicles. Pasternack’s new series of military-grade cable assemblies consist of 124 basic configurations from six different cable types for a total of more than 700 part numbers that are all available for same-day shipment. These cables provide operating frequencies of up to 12.4 GHz and VSWR as low as 1.3:1 per connector. They are made from MIL-DTL-17 qualified cable, MIL-PRF-39012 qualified connectors, AS23053 heat shrink and J-STD soldering.

Automotive Radome Tester

Placement of radar sensors often involves compromises between vehicle design and sensor performance. They are therefore usually located behind brand emblems and bumpers or integrated into rear-view mirrors or other plastic parts. To enable reliable transmission of the radar signals despite the radomes, the radome material must be sufficiently transparent and homogeneous in the 77 GHz and 79 GHz bands. Otherwise, reflections and transmission attenuation in the radar sensor’s field of view will considerably impair sensor performance. The total amount of radar power that passes through the radome is a crucial factor.
