October 19, 2017 - Mini-Circuits announces the availability of four new devices in its lineup of RF and microwave components. Included are an extra-long-life absorptive electromechanical SP4T switch for DC to 18 GHz, a 2.4 mm (female to male) adapter covers DC to 50 GHz for industry-leading value, a surface-mount bandpass filter for 95 to 105 MHz with excellent selectivity, and an ultra-high dynamic range MMIC amplifier providing +46.1 dBm IP3 from 0.03 to 2.7 GHz.

Extra-Long Life Absorptive Electromechanical SP4T Switch, DC to 18 GHz

Mini-Circuits™ MSP4TA-18D+ is an ultra-reliable, rugged-duty, absorptive fail-safe SP4T switch, designed in break-before-make configuration, with D-Sub DC control connection. The switch operates from DC to 18 GHz and offers extremely long switch life up to 10 million cycles. Powered by +24VDC, this model has a typical switching speed of 20ms, insertion loss of 0.2 dB and high isolation of 90 dB. The MSP4TA-18D+ is suitable for use across a wide range of applications, including switching for automated test equipment and redundancy switching.

2.4mm (Female to Male) Adapter Covers DC to 50 GHz for Industry-Leading Value

Mini-Circuits™ 24F-24M+ 2.4mm-Female to 2.4mm-Male adapter expands our portfolio of products in the 40 and 50 GHz range to give you more options and more capabilities. This model provides 0.12 dB insertion loss with very flat response across the DC to 50 GHz range and 1.06:1 typical VSWR up to 50 GHz. The unit features passivated stainless steel construction and measures only 0.72(l) x 0.36(dia.). Mini-Circuits now offers 50 GHz 2.4mm adapters in a variety of gender configurations, all offering industry-leading performance and value.


Surface-Mount Bandpass Filter Passes 95 to 105 MHz with Excellent Selectivity

BPF-F100+ is a surface-mount bandpass filter with a passband from 95 to 105 MHz. This model provides narrow bandwidth with outstanding selectivity, offering 40 dB rejection or greater within 10 MHz of the passband cut-off. It is capable of handling up to 1W RF input power and achieves 5 dB insertion loss in the passband. The filter uses miniature, high-Q capacitors and wire-welded inductors for high reliability, repeatable performance, and excellent thermal stability. It comes housed in shielded, 18-lead surface-mount package measuring 0.73 x 1.36 x 0.35 with wraparound terminations for excellent solderability.

Ultra-High Dynamic Range MMIC Amplifier Provides +46.1 dBm IP3 from 0.03 to 2.7 GHz

PHA-202+ is an ultra-high dynamic range MMIC amplifier supporting a wide range of applications from 0.03 to 2.7 GHz without the need for any external matching components. This model operates on a single +11 dBm supply and provides +46.1 dBm IP3, +30.4 dBm P1dB, 17 dB gain, and input/output return loss of better than 15 dB across its entire frequency range. Fabricated with E-PHEMT technology, the amplifier has highly repeatable performance from lot to lot and comes housed in a 5x6mm, 8-pad MCLP package with excellent thermal performance.
