CEL Introduces Low Cost pHEMTs for Satellite Receivers and RF Communications

CEL has introduced low cost pHEMTs (pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor) targeted for Ku and Ka Band Satellite Receiver applications. These pHEMTs are drop-in replacements to the Renesas pHEMTs, also offered by CEL. Typical applications for these devices are LNBs (Low Noise Block) in Digital Broadcast Systems (DBS), and downconverters in VSAT systems and 24 GHz sensors. These new low noise pHEMTs are also excellent for a variety of other microwave and RF applications.

In addition to reduced noise and higher gain, CEL provides these pHEMTs at lower prices than their equivalent Renesas RF pHEMTs. CEL is manufacturing these pHEMTs in Japan with similar high quality as the Renesas pHEMTs.

These new microwave components include:

CE3512K2: Low Noise 1st stage Ku Band pHEMT
CE3514M4: Lowest Cost 2nd/3rd stage Ku Band pHEMT
CE3520K3: Low Noise 1st stage Ka Band pHEMT
CE3521M4: Lowest Cost 2nd/3rd stage Ka Band pHEMT
