Latest microwave products on show at IMS 2016
The International Microwave Symposium 2016 (IMS), taking place next week in San Francisco, will see TMD Technologies (TMD) feature its latest microwave products on Booth 1849.
Showcased on the stand will be TMD’s PTS6900 solid state MPM and latest PTXM Series high power density TWT-based ultra-compact MPMs, plus its new range of PTX8807 Ka band TWT-based compact MPMs - as well as Ku band fast warm ring loop TWTs.
Following the success at recent international exhibitions, TMD will again be giving daily live demonstrations of its new solid state PTS6900 MPM - an advanced GaN MMIC-based module optimised for EW/ECM systems.
Andy Crawford, newly promoted to Head of After Sales, TMD UK, commented: “The live demonstrations of our new solid state PTS6900 MPM have proved to be a real crowd-puller. Visitors to our stand at IMS 2016 will now be able to see at first hand the exceptional performance of the new module. We achieve this by setting up the PTS6900 to operate into a dummy load, with the resultant output power shown on a display.”
Steve Olson, Regional Sales Manager, TMD US, added: “We are confident that we will see a repeat success story for the solid state PTS6900 demonstrations at the IMS major international event this year in San Francisco. Our customers really appreciate TMD’s philosophy of providing the benefit of both solid state products, such as the PTS6900, and TWT-based products operating at high frequency and high power - epitomised by our new PTXM Series ultra-compact MPMs.”
The solid state PTS6900 MPM
Optimised for EW/ECM systems, the solid state PTS6900 employs the latest 0.25µm GaN MMIC technology to provide performance over the 2-6GHz range. This ITAR-free MPM offers an output power of 150W and adjustable 55dB gain. It also has instant start-up, fast mute time, and predicted over 30,000 hours MTBF for an airborne uninhabited fighter environment.
PTXM Series TWT-based MPMs
Well suited for UAVs (where low volume and weight are critical), the new TWT-based PTXM Series operate over the 4.5 to 18GHz band with output powers up to 140W.
Compact TWT-based MPMs
TMD has added a new range of Ka band compact MPMs to its TWT-based range. Similar to the PTX8807, operating over the 32-36GHz range at 200W output power, the new modules are designed for radar and EW applications.
In addition, TMD will be exhibiting its fast warm Ku band ring loop TWTs and rapidly developing range of instrumentation TWT and solid state amplifiers. The latter have applications in the avionics and aerospace industries for radar/EW simulation and training - and also EMC HIRF testing.
