Fairview Microwave Debuts Frequency Dividers with Compact and Rugged SMA Connectorized Packages


Reading time ( words)

Fairview Microwave Inc., an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave, and millimeter wave components, has introduced a new line of frequency divider modules that cover broadband frequencies from 0.1 GHz to 20 GHz.

A comprehensive offering of 28 different models features fixed divide-by-ratios from 2 to 40.  These compact prescalers are ideal for use in frequency synthesizer and phase locked loop (PLL) circuit designs, as well as test instrumentation systems.  These rugged frequency dividers are typically used in applications such as satellite communications, VSAT, aerospace and defense, test and measurement, and point-to-point radio networks.

This line of dividers is available in compact and rugged SMA connectorized packages with input power ranging from -20 to +15 dBm, and output power ranging from -6 to +5 dBm depending on the model. The circuit assemblies feature advanced GaAs HBT MMIC semiconductor technology that produces low additive SSB phase noise performance with typical levels down to -155 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offset.

Fairview’s new RF frequency divider modules are designed for high reliability and most models are guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for shock, humidity, vibration and altitude. Some models are hermetically sealed and are guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-883 environmental test conditions for temperature cycle and fine & gross leak.

“This comprehensive new line of frequency divider modules was designed to optimize performance for phase locked loops and other applications by offering wide frequency bands from 0.1 to 20 GHz and a wide variety of fixed divide-by-ratio configurations,” said Tim Galla, Product Manager.

Fairview Microwave’s SMA frequency dividers are ready for immediate shipment, with no minimum order quantity required.

First, the arrival of extrusion metal printing. Today's extrusion printers are the most prevalent and, arguably, user-friendly 3D Printers in the market. Now, after years of there being zero metal extrusion printers, there will be two in the new year from Desktop Metal and Markforged. These technologies promise new materials and a higher degree of user friendliness for metal printing.
