Rugged Low Phase Noise Amplifier Modules Now Offer the Best Value!

Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has recently reduced the list price of several of the GaAs HBT Ultra Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules. These rugged connectorized amplifiers are ideal for high performance applications in microwave radio, military & space, radar systems, test instrumentation and synthesizer applications from 1.5 to 12 GHz.

The HMC-C072, HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 are GaAs HBT Ultra-Low Phase Noise Amplifier modules which are rated from 6 to 12 GHz, 7 to 11 GHz, 1.5 to 5.0 GHz, and 3 to 8 GHz, respectively. These high performance amplifier modules exhibit a phase noise contribution as low as -180 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, enabling superior modulation accuracy in high resolution radar and synthesizer applications. Across the product line, these high performance amplifier modules provide up to 14 dB of gain and up to +34 dBm output IP3, with noise figure as low as 4.5 dB. Also ideal for transceiver architectures, these modules deliver up to +25 dBm of saturated output power with good gain flatness and minimal variation over temperature.

Specified over the industrial temperature range of -55 °C to +85 °C and housed in miniature hermetic modules with field replaceable SMA connectors, the HMC-C072, HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 operate from a single +7V supply and consume between 110 and 300 mA of bias current, depending on the model selected.

These module amplifiers offer a unique combination of performance, ruggedness and cost, and represent an outstanding value when compared to competing solutions. The HMC-C072, HMC-C076, HMC-C077, and HMC-C079 complement Hittite's broad line of low noise and power amplifier products which are available in die, SMT and connectorized module formats with frequency coverage to 86 GHz.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
