Teledyne e2v HiRel launches 25GHz frequency doubler
Teledyne e2v HiRel of Milpitas, CA, USA (part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group that provides solutions, sub-systems and components to the space, transportation, defense and industrial markets) has announced the latest addition to its expanding line of RF solutions.
Launching the firm’s new frequency multiplier product line, the TDFM001000 active RF MMIC frequency doubler is designed for high-reliability signal chain applications in demanding space environments. It is particularly suited to satellite transponders, transmit/receive modules, microwave-based communications, millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, and related processes.
The TDFM001000 is a 7.5-25.0/15.0-50.0GHz single-ended input (no external balun required) gallium arsenide (GaAs) MMIC doubler with a +15.0dBm output drive. As an LO doubler it can be used to drive fundamental mixer devices. It uses a GaAs pHEMT device model technology and is based on electron-beam lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity. Other features include: 100% on-wafer RF, DC and output power testing; 100% visual inspection to MIL-STD-883 Method 2010; RoHS compliant; and 260°C reflow compatible.
“This is the first frequency multiplier released by Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics and is the latest addition to our rapidly growing portfolio of high-reliability RF solutions for aerospace and defense,” says Mont Taylor, VP of business development for Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics. “We will be introducing several new standard RF building block solutions in the months ahead to supplement our other lines including amplifiers, LNAs, PAs, DVGAs, DSAs, limiters, mixers, pre-scalers, PLLs, switches, and more.”
The TDFM001000 is available to order now, with shipments beginning in October.
