Planar Monolithic Industries (PMI) recently introduced three new products in their extensive line
of RF and microwave components. One is a 35 dB low noise amplifier (LNA) covering 0.5 to 2.5 GHz,
another is a 32 dB 10-bit programmable attenuator for frequency range of 14.0 to 40.0 GHz, and
another is a 2-18 GHz 8-Bit, vector phase shifter (VPS). Contact PMI today for more information.
PMI Model LNA-35-500M2D5G-0D6-25-12-SFF
is a Low Noise Amplifier operating over the 0.5 to 2.5 GHz, Low Noise Amplifier. This model offers a
typical gain of 35 dB while maintaining a typical gain flatness of ±1.6 dB and a maximum noise
figure of 0.6 dB. This compact model is outfitted with SMA female connectors in housing measuring
1.25" x 1.25" x 0.563".
PMI Mode DTA-14G40G-32-CD-2
is a 10 Bit programmable attenuator with step resolution as low as 0.04 dB which provides over 32 dB
of attenuation over the frequency range of 14.0 to 40.0 GHz. This model is offered in a slim line housing
measuring 2.0" x 1.8" x 0.5" with 2.92mm female connectors and operates on a single +15 VDC supply with
only 40 mA of current consumption typically. Specifications include Insertion Loss 9.0 dB Typical, VSWR
2.0:1, Attenuation Flatness ±1.5 dB Typical, Attenuation Accuracy ±2.0 dB Typical, Power handling of
+24 dBm CW maximum, and Input 1dB Compression: +10 dBm Typical.
PMI Model PS-2G18G-360-8D
PS-2G18G-360-8D is a 2-18 GHz, 8-Bit, Vector Phase Shifter making it ideal for frequency
translation where continuous monotonic phase shifting is required. This model features high speed switching
(<410 ns measured), phase shift 360° with a ±15° accuracy (typical), 18.0 dB maximum insertion loss
and typically lower than 60 dB harmonic distortion. Package Size: 4.25" x 3.50" x 1.00", SMA(F) connectors,DC-37P,
Sub Miniature D Multi-Pin control connector and operates using ±12V to ±15V @ ±100 mA maximum.
