new products MINIATURE PORTABLE RECEIVERS LE E The Picoceptor™ is DRS Technologies’ newest series of miniaaa ture portable receivers. Measuring 13 cubic inches and requiring 1 Watt of power, the receiver is designed d for portable SIGINT and other software-defi nable radio applications. The receiver features an FPGA architecture and a built-in Webbased USB 2.0 graphical user interface that attaches to thumb drives, Ethernet devices, GPS receivers and Bluetooth modules and connects to a personal computer (PC) or laptop. Its RAM and flash memory support Linux OS software. Its file transfer protocol (FTP) and telecommunications network (telnet) protocol capability make it well-suited for complex digital signal processing. DRS Signal Solutions Inc., Gaithersburg, MD; www.drs-ss.com BROADBAND RF TRANSISTORS The PowerBand™ family of high-power, wideband RF transistors from TriQuint Semiconductor is designed for broadband radar and signal jamming applications in mobile and ground-based environments. The transistors operate across a 500 MHz- to 3 GHz- frequency range, delivering up to 50 Watts of power with a 50 percent PAE typical efficiency performance. Other features include a long battery life and less PCB area dedicated to RF and less need for thermal control than conventional transistors. The transistors can be developed to integrate gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN) or RF laterally-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) technologies. TriQuint Semiconductor; Hillsboro, OR; www.tqs.com ULTRA-BROADBAND AMPLIFIER The CHPA0618-1-G45, a solid-state amplifier from p CAP Wireless, operates s across a 6- to 18-GHz frequency range with 40 Watts s of output power. Designed d for applications including g electronic attack, the amplil ifier’s architecture is based on on the company’s Spatium™ spatial combining technology that provides single-point failure protection and 3D heat dissipation, making it well-suited as an alternative to a traveling wave tube amplifier. Other features include a low noise figure, low phase noise and spurious, an infinite load VSWR without damage to the amplifier and no warm-up or turn-on lag. CAP Wireless; Newbury Park, CA; www.capwireless.com 18-40 GHz MILLIMETER-WAVE SDLVAs Link Microtek has introduced a line of millimeter-wave successive detection log video amplifiers (SDLVAs) manufactured by Endwave Corporation and designed for electronic intelligence (ELINT) receivers, as well as radar and missile-guidance systems. The SDVLAs come in three types, the 18- to 40-GHz ASDA81840, the 18- to 26-GHz ASDA-81826 and the 26- to 40-GHz ASDA-82640. With a typical signal sensitivity of -65 dBm at 85 degrees Celsius and a typical dynamic range exceeding 69 dB, the amplifiers have a +/1.0 dB log linearity and +/-1.5 dB frequency fl atness. Hermetically sealed, they can operate in temperatures ranging from -45 to 85 degrees Celsius. Link Microtek; Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK; www.linkmicrotek.com 46 The Journal of Electronic Defense | March 2009 HIGH- AND LOW-BAND TRANSMITTERS dB Control has launched four high- and low-band transmitters covering the 6- to 18-GHz and 2- to 7-GHz frequency spectrum and designed for next-generation airborne electronic attack applications. Based on microwave power module (MPM) technology, the MILSTD-461E-compliant transmitters include a high-band transmitter providing 1,500 Watts of power, a highband continuous wave (CW) transmitter providing 100 Watts CW or pulse power, a dual high-band transmitter providing 200 Watts per channel CW or pulse power and a single low-band transmitter providing 200 Watts CW or pulse power. The four products are RAMor ECS airair-co air-cooled and perform at altitudes at up to 60,000 feet. dB 60,000 Control; Fremont, CA; Fr rem w w w. d b c ont rol . w.d co com om FPGA-BASED DIGITAL RECEIVERS ECEIVERS E Mercury Computer Systems has tems t introduced the DCM-V5XMC Echotek® series of digital receivers based on Virtex™-5 FPGA architecture. Ideal for COMINT and nd n ELINT applications, the receivers ivers are packaged in a mezzanine card ne format and have two 14-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) at up to 250 mega samples per second (MSPS) and one 12-bit digital-to-analog (DAC) converter at up to 2.3 giga samples per second (GSPS). The units are available either with a Virtex-5 SX95T or LX155T FPGA and each comes with QDR-II-SRAM and DDR-II-SDRAM memory chips, the latter using a 312.5-MHz, 32-bitwide link to the FPGA for a 2.5-GB/s bandwidth. The convection-cooled receivers include two high-speed serial XMC connectors and can be used in temperatures ranging from 0 to 40 degrees Celsius.
