RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

January 16, 2018 - Mini-Circuits announces in its product lineup the availability of four new devices in its lineup of RF and microwave components. Included are a MMIC 2-way 90° hybrid covers 5 to 11 GHz, a broadband 75 Ω surface-mount transformer covers 10 to 1400 MHz, a wideband MMIC balun covers 5500 to 13500 MHz in 3 x 3 mm QFN package, and an ultra-wideband coaxial LNA matched from 0.5 to 15 GHz.

Tiny MMIC 2-Way 90° Hybrid Covers 5 to 11 GHz - RF CafeTiny MMIC 2-Way 90° Hybrid Covers 5 to 11 GHz

EPQ-113+ is an ultra-wideband MMIC 2-way 90° hybrid covering a wide range of applications from the 5 to 11 MHz. Fabricated using IPD process on GaAs, this model provides 0.6 dB typical insertion loss, 19 dB isolation, 3.7° phase unbalance, and 0.8 dB amplitude unbalance. Capable of handling RF input power handling up to +32 dBm for 5 min max and +30 dBm continuous, the hybrid supports power requirements for use in both transmit and receive paths. Housed in a tiny 4x4mm QFN package, it provides excellent repeatability and high reliability in operating environments from -45 to +85 °C. This tiny hybrid is an ideal building block for signal processing designs requiring 90° phase offset and to insulate circuits from reflective elements.

Broadband 75 Ω Surface-Mount Transformer Covers 10 to 1400 MHz - RF CafeBroadband 75 Ω Surface-Mount Transformer Covers 10 to 1400 MHz

TCM2-142-75X+ is a surface-mount transmission line transformer supporting use in 75 Ω systems operating over the 10 to 1400 MHz range. This model provides a secondary/primary impedance ratio of 2:1 with 1.3 dB insertion loss, 17 dB typical return loss, 0.5 dB amplitude, and 10° phase unbalance. The transformer handles up to 0.4W RF power and 30 mA DC current. It features core and wire construction mounted on a 5-pad plastic base with gold over nickel termination finish. This tiny unit occupies only 0.15 x 0.15 x 0.15" of board space and features Mini-Circuits' unique Top Hat feature to improve speed and accuracy of pick and place assembly.

Wideband MMIC Balun Covers 5500 to 13500 MHz in 3 x 3 mm QFN Package - RF CafeWideband MMIC Balun Covers 5500 to 13500 MHz in 3 x 3 mm QFN Package

Mini-Circuits' MTX2-143+ is a wideband MMIC balun transformer with an impedance ratio of 2:1 covering a wide range of applications from 5500 to 13500 MHz. This model is designed for applications where conversion of a single-ended 50 Ω line into a balanced 100 Ω line is needed. Fabricated using IPD process technology, this model provides outstanding repeatability from lot to lot. The transformer achieves 1.3 dB insertion loss, 1.0 dB amplitude unbalance, 8° phase unbalance, and RF power handling up to +34 dBm (2.5 W). The unit comes housed in a tiny, 12-pad 3 x 3 x 0.80 mm QFN package with low inductance and excellent thermal efficiency.

Ultra-Wideband Coaxial LNA, Matched from 0.5 to 15 GHz - RF CafeUltra-Wideband Coaxial LNA Matched from 0.5 to 15 GHz

ZX60-153LN+ is an ultra-wideband connectorized LNA providing low noise figure of typically 2.4 dB across the entire 0.5 to 15 GHz frequency range, supporting a broad range of applications including WiFi, LTE, S-Band radar, C-Band and X-band SatCom and test instrumentation. It delivers 17 dB typical gain with ±2.7 dB flatness, P1dB of +16 dBm, and +28 dBm IP3. The amplifier operates on a single +12 V supply with low current consumption and comes housed in a rugged, compact unibody case (0.74 x 0.75 x 0.46") with SMA connectors.
