PIN Diode Switch
Model SS153DHS is a SP5T reflective PIN di-
ode switch that operates from DC to 18 GHz
and provides fast switching speed, high isola-
tion, low insertion loss, and is housed in a rug-
ged compact package. Together these features
make the switch an excellent choice for applica-
tions ranging from electronic warfare systems
and simulators to automated test equipment.
The model SS- 153DHS has witching speed of 20 ns, inser- tion loss ranging from 2.6 dB
GHz and 3. 6 dB from 12 to 18 GHz, maximum
VSWR of 2:1 and isolation up to 65 dB. It can
handle up to 200 m W of RF power and can sur-
vive RF power input of 1 W CW and 20 W peak
(1 µs pulse width, 5 percent duty cycle).
Linearized X-band Attenuator
Themodel AAT-30-479/5S isalinearizedX- bandatttenua- torthatoperates inafrequency rangefrom8to 12.4GHz.This
new 0 to 60 dB
linearized attenuator offers a maximum insertion loss of 3 dB and a maximum VSWR of 2:1.
Attenuation is accomplished with a transfer
function of 10 dB/V; typical DC power required
is + 15 VDC at 100 mA.

TheNand 7/16Composite ConnectorSe- rieshasbeen expandedwith over20new
plugs, jacks and receptacles. The single-piece
design permits the contact pressure to be equal-
ly distributed by diverting the entire tightening
torque force through pressure on the ground
contact junction, which improves the intermod-
ulation level. The electrical performance in-
cludes a low operating VSWR, 1.10 maximum
up to 7. 5 GHz for 7/16 receptacles. Designed to
be installed in telecommunications equipment
such as remote radio heads, antennas, filters,
etc., the connectors are manufactured with cor-
rosion free, composite materials that are UV
resistant and meet IEC 68-2-5 and IEC-68-2-9.

Discrete Oscillator Design: Linear,
Nonlinear, Transient, and Noise Domains
Randall W. Rhea
Oscillators are an essential part of all spread spectrum, RF, and wireless
systems, and today’s engineers in the field need to have a firm grasp on how
they are designed. Presenting an easy-to-understand, unified view of the subject,
this authoritative resource covers:
➤ Practical design of high-frequency oscillators with lumped, distributed,
dielectric and piezoelectric resonators;
➤ Important linear, nonlinear harmonic balance, transient and noise analysis
➤ How to create unique designs that elegantly match your specification needs.
