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...

February 13, 2018 - Mini-Circuits announces the availability of four new devices in its lineup of RF and microwave components. Included are a high pass filter with a passband of 8 to 24 GHz, an ultra-high dynamic range MMIC amplifier matched to 50 Ω from 30 MHz to 2 GHz, an absorptive solid state SP4T switch controlled by USB and I2C connection, and an  LTCC band pass filter having a pass band from 4620 to 6640 MHz.

Mini-Circuits' ZHSS-8G-S+ high pass filter - RF CafeSuspended Substrate High Pass Filter Features Wide Passband from 8 to 24 GHz

Mini-Circuits' ZHSS-8G-S+ high pass filter has a broad passband of 8 to 24 GHz with sharp cutoff and high stopband rejection. Fabricated with reliable suspended-substrate-stripline circuit technology, the RoHS-compliant filter has typical passband insertion loss of 1 dB with typical passband VSWR of 2.0:1.

Typical stopband rejection is 85 dB from DC to 4000 MHz, 50 dB from 4000 to 5300 MHz, and 30 dB from 5300 to 5800 MHz. The low pass filter is suitable for rejection of unwanted harmonic signal content in a wide range of transmitter and receiver applications. The filter handles input power levels up to 3 W and is designed for operating temperatures from -40 to +85°C. It is supplied in a compact coaxial package measuring 0.70 x 0.50 x 0.50 in. (17.78 x 12.70 x 12.70 mm) with SMA connectors.

Mini-Circuits' PHA-23HLN+ ultra-high dynamic range MMIC amplifier - RF CafeMMIC Amplifier Stretches the Boundaries of Dynamic Range from 30 MHz to 2 GHz

Mini-Circuits' PHA-23HLN+ ultra-high dynamic range MMIC amplifier sets the new industry standard for noise figure and IP3 in VHF/UHF communications. This model is well matched to 50 Ω from 30 MHz to 2 GHz and provides 1.4 dB noise figure, +44.4 dBm IP3, making it ideal for maximizing sensitivity and dynamic range in high-performance receiver applications.

It delivers 21 dB typical gain with ±1.8 dB flatness, +28.4 dBm output power at 1 dB compression. The amplifier is fabricated using E-PHEMT technology with excellent repeatability. It operates on a single 8 V supply, and comes housed in a tiny SOT-89 package with excellent thermal performance, allowing reliable performance over operating temperatures from -40 to +95°C.

Mini-Circuits' U2C-1SP4T-63H absorptive solid state SP4T switch - RF CafeHigh Isolation Solid State Switch SP4T with USB & I2C Control, 2 to 6000 MHz

Mini-Circuits' U2C-1SP4T-63H is an absorptive, solid state SP4T switch controlled by USB and I2C connection, supporting a wide range of applications from 2 to 6000 MHz. This model provides typical switching speed of 250 ns, input power handling up to +30 dBm, 80 dB isolation, and +55 dBm IP3.

The switch comes housed in a rugged, compact metal case (3.75 x 2.50 x 0.60 inch) with SMA RF connectors, a USB Mini-B port and a 9-pin D-sub connector for I2C control and power. The dual control interface gives the user versatility for control of the switch directly via USB or for easy system integration via I2C connection. The switch is supplied with Mini-Circuits user-friendly GUI software for Windows as well as an API supported by most programming environments, allowing integration and automation within the user's native software with programming instructions for Windows and Linux environments.

Mini-Circuits' BFCN-5540+ LTCC band pass filter - RF CafeTiny LTCC Band Pass Filter, 4620 to 6640 MHz

Mini-Circuits' BFCN-5540+ LTCC band pass filter has a pass band from 4620 to 6640 MHz, supporting harmonic rejection in a variety of transmitter/receiver applications including aviation, WLAN and more.

This model provides 1.2 dB passband insertion loss, 22 dB lower stopband rejection, 30 dB upper stopband rejection and RF input power handling up to 1 W. LTCC construction provides tiny size (0.12 x 0.06 x 0.04 inch), excellent thermal stability from -55 to +100°C, and outstanding reliability for tough operating conditions.
