Fairview Microwave Introduces TTL Controlled Bi-Phase Modulators from 0.5 to 40 GHz

Fairview Microwave, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave components, has just released a new line of bi-phase modulators covering broad octave frequency bands from 0.5 to 40 GHz. These models use TTL logic to phase modulate data onto an RF carrier signal using 2 phase-shift keyings (2PSK). Useful applications include military and commercial communications systems, microwave radio, radar, high-data-rate test & measurement, serial data transmission, and wireless base station infrastructure.

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