Teledyne e2v HiRel Unveils 25 GHz Frequency Doubler for Space Applications

Teledyne e2V HiRel, a subsidiary of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, has released a new RF MMIC Frequency Doubler. The TDFM001000 is an active doubler that designed for high reliability signal chain applications in Space. It is particularly well-suited specifically for satellite transponders, transmit/receive modules, microwave-based communications, millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, and related processes.

The TDFM001000 Frequency Doubler is a 7.5-25.0 / 15.0-50.0 GHz single ended input (no external balun required) GaAs MMIC Doubler with a +15.0 dBm output drive. It is an excellent LO Doubler that can be used to drive fundamental mixer devices. It uses a GaAs PHEMT device model technology and is based upon electron beam lithography to ensure high repeatability and uniformity.

This is the first Frequency Multiplier released by Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics and is the latest addition to its rapidly growing portfolio of high reliability RF solutions for aerospace and defense, said Mont Taylor, VP of Business Development for Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics. The company will be introducing several new standard RF building block solutions in the months ahead to supplement its other lines including amplifiers, LNAs, PAs, DVGAs, DSAs, Limiters, Mixers, Prescalers, PLLs, Switches, and more.

Key Features of the TDFM001000:

  • Single Ended Input Doubler with Distributed Buffer Amplifier
  • 100% On-Wafer RF, dc and Output Power Testing
  • 100% Visual Inspection to MIL-STD-883 Method 2010
  • RoHS Compliant
