Inductor Coils

SemiGen spiral inductor coils come in ten models with seven different square dimensions including .030”x.030”, .040”x.040”, .045”x.045”, .055”x.055”, .065”x.065”, .075”x.075”, and .085”x.085”―all inductors are .012” thick. Inductance offered ranges from 1.5 nH to 300 nH with 1.5 turns up to 18.5 turns. The coils are manufactured on a thin film process on quartz substrates with precision photolithography and non-chemical etching to ensure clean edges and uniformity from coil to coil.

Pasternack released a line of waveguide direct read attenuators for instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF/Microwave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom applications. These attenuators are available in WR-42 to WR-10 waveguide standards operating in seven waveguide bands within the 18 GHz to 110 GHz frequency range. They boast +/- 2% typical attenuation accuracy and feature an easy-to-read drum scale and military standard UG-style flanges. Minimum attenuation range is 0 dB to 50 dB with an insertion loss of 0.5 dB to 1 dB depending on the frequency range.


1701 HFE choice11


RFMW announced support for a high efficiency power doubler designed to support DOCSIS 3.1 CATV hybrid fiber coax (HFC) requirements. The Skyworks ACA2429 offers 26.3dB typical gain with 1dB tilt over the bandwidth of 50 to 1218MHz. Ideal for HFC distribution systems and headend equipment, the ACA2429 operates from 24V using 430mA. Two parallel amplifiers are optimized for exceptionally low distortion, high output power, and high crash point in a thermally enhanced surface mount package.
