Wraps taken off laboratory bench test components website
Richardson RFPD has launched a new website resource focused exclusively on Laboratory Bench Test components. Richardson RFPD offers a wide range of test components for the lab test bench, from low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and broadband test amplifiers, to high performance test cables, adapters, attenuators, terminations, coaxial switches, and lab kits.
Two becomes one with high-isolation DC/DC converters
Richardson RFPD is offering availability and full design support capabilities for RECOM Power’s high-isolation DC-to-DC converters. Designed specifically for insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) systems, the converters' asymmetric outputs of +15V and -9V make them ideal to power IGBT drivers, replacing the need for two converters.
Richardson RFPD guide focuses on Silicon Carbide devices
Richardson RFPD has published a new Silicon Carbide (SiC) Products Brochure featuring the latest products from Cree, Microsemi, Powerex and Vincotech. The 8-page quick reference guide highlights SiC Schottky diodes (600V, 650V, 1200V and 1700V, 1A – 60A), SiC MOSFETs (1200V and 1700V), full SiC modules (1200V, up to 270A) and Si/SiC hybrid modules (600V – 1200V, up to 116A).
Schottky diodes come in compact packages
Richardson RFPD has announced availability and full design support capabilities for four new 650V Silicon Carbide (SiC) Schottky diodes from Microsemi. The new devices are the latest addition to Microsemi's SiC Schottky product family.
50V moisture resistant RF power transistor
Richardson RFPD has the SD4933MR N-channel field-effect RF power transistor from ST Microelectronics. It is intended for use in 50V industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications up to 100 MHz. The device benefits from the latest generation of environmentally-designed packaging and is ruggedised against cyclic high-moisture operating and severe storage conditions.
Richardson RFPD adds 50 Ohm SPDT switch
Richardson RFPD has immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new absorptive, 50Ω RF single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch from Peregrine Semiconductor. The PE42423 operates from 100MHz to 6GHz and features high linearity that remains invariant across the full supply range, as well as high power handling and high isolation.
Integrated RMS Detector Brings Down BOM Costs
Richardson RFPD now has a DC to 6GHz Envelope and TruPwr RMS (root mean square) Detector from Analog Devices(ADI). The device offers a high level of integration and functionality by combining two RF detector functions into one small chip, thereby simplifying designs and reducing BOM (bill of materials) cost.
Richardson RFPD At PCIM Europe 2013
Richardson RFPD has today announced its attendance and participation at the 2013 Power Conversion Intelligent Motion Europe exhibition. PCIM is Europe's leading meeting-point for specialists in power electronics and its applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management.
