Bi-Phase Modulators from 0.5 to 40 GHz Available In-Stock from Pasternack

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has launched a new line of bi-phase modulators that includes a comprehensive selection of nine different models covering broad octave frequency bands ranging from 0.5 to 40 GHz. Bi-phase modulators take a TTL level digital bits stream that is encoded onto the RF carrier using 2 Phase Shift Keying (2PSK) modulation, where the 2 phases are separated by 180 degrees. This performance is desirable in communications systems, microwave radio, radar, high-data-rate test & measurement, serial data transmission, base station infrastructure and other industrial and military applications.  

Pasternack’s new line of 0° to 180° bi-phase modulators offer impressive features that include TTL command control, low insertion loss of 2.5 dB typical, fast switching speed of 40 nsec typical, low VSWR of 1.8:1 typical and maximum peak RF input power of 0.5 watts.  All designs require dual bias voltages and the input and output RF ports are bi-directional. These bi-phase modulators operate across a wide temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.  The compact and rugged packages utilize solder pins for TTL, DC bias and ground, and field replaceable SMA or 2.92mm female connectors. All designs are highly reliable, meeting MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for humidity, shock, vibration, altitude and temperature cycle.

These fully integrated bi-phase modulators offer desirable and accurate performance features for modulating a signal response over broad frequency bands. Production lead-times for these types of products is usually 22-24 weeks. However, Pasternack has these in stock and available for immediate shipping with no minimum order quantity (MOQ).
