The Model 2382-2, a two-way power divider, operates from 500 MHz to 6.0 GHz, handles up to 250 watts CW power, maintains exceptional amplitude and phase balance, low insertion loss, and high isolation. It is ideal for use in commercial and military applications. The power divider has insertion loss no greater than 1.5 dB at any frequency in its range, phase balance of +/-7 deg., amplitude balance of 0.4 dB, isolation of at least 9 dB from 500 to 1.0 GHz, and 17 dB from 1.0 GHz to 6.0 GHz. Maximum VSWR is typically 1.5:1 at all ports. Model 2382-2 will handle 100 W CW under any load condition, 220 W CW into a 2:1 VSWR, and 250 W CW into a 1.2:1 VSWR. It has Type-N female connectors, and measures 3.5 x 2.5 x 1 in.
his Narda business unit has pioneered the development of high performance, densely packaged integrated microwave assemblies and subsystems in footprints previously unachievable. By leveraging commonly available multi-layer board materials with unique interconnection techniques, and incorporating DSP and sophisticated monitor and control functions, NTDS solutions are currently redefining State-of-the-art.

PIN diodes are essential tools in the designer’s handbook. There are many resources that provide information about PIN diode characteristics and integration. However, practical information about selecting the proper PIN diode-based product for a specific application is extremely hard to fine. Narda’s new PIN Diode Control Products Application Note was created to fill this void. It includes basic discussions of PIN diode characteristics, the most commonly used PIN-diode based products, and the trade-offs encountered in designing products around them. The merits of various types of control products within a specific category (analog and digital attenuators, for example) are discussed as well.

Authored by Erica Aycin, a member of Narda Microwave’s technical staff, the article describes the company’s innovative approach to the design and development of a compact Ku band transceiver for satellite communications (satcom) applications. To read the complete article, please click here.
As demonstrated by Narda’s Model 81000 Satcom Transceiver, this new technology can dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power consumption of even ruggedized military satellite terminals. In a housing measuring just 15 x 6.25 x 3.25 in., and weighing only 15 lb., the Model 81000 not only packs frequency upconverter and downconverter subsystems, but a 13-W linear RF power amplifier, a power supply, control circuits, and Ethernet and RS-485 connectivity. Similar products are available for the X and Ka bands. (Please click here for detailed specifications for the Model 81000.)
