We're pleased to announce the release of our new 2021 product guide which provides performance details and pricing on the best low-cost, portable, and programmable Lab Bricks for RF, microwave, and wireless Automated Test Equipment (ATE) and engineering test bench applications up to 40 GHz (L-, S-, C-, X-, Ku-, K-, and Ka-band).
Among the latest handheld RF test device and equipment additions to the Lab Brick lineup include:
An 8X8 Matrix Attenuator which offers 90 dB of signal attenuation and an ultra-fine 0.1 dB step size up to 6 GHz. (A 64X8 option is also available.)
A 6 GHz to 18 GHz portable RF/microwave signal generator designed for creating chirp signals in military/defense radar applications. (It also features 20 MHz per µS frequency sweep.)
Also reviewed in the new product guide are Vaunix's recently released line of 700 MHz to 7.25 GHz (L-, S-, and C-band) power dividers/combiners which can be used as easy to mount splitters in a number of advanced RF testing applications.
LPD-752-2, a 2-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner with a frequency range of 700 – 7,250 MHz featuring excellent amplitude and phase balance along with high port-to-port isolation.
LPD-752-4, a 4-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner with a tight amplitude balance of 0.5 dB and 6 degrees of phase balance.
LPD-752-8, an 8-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner. The unique mechanical design offers a space saving via 0.45” connector spacing and recessed SMA flanges for direct panel mount compatibility.
LPD-752-16, a 16-way, 0-degree power divider with a small footprint of 7.85” by 0.6” for all 16 ports.
LPD-752-16-2Q, a dual 16-way, rack mount power divider. This compact design simplifies integration into existing ATE configurations.
ATE designers and rf/microwave subsystem designers alike—particularly those working on advanced radar, wireless handover testing/fading simulation, MIMO, 5G, Wi-Fi, and Satcom system and antenna applications—will find value in the ease with which lab research and design and field installations can be conducted using the advanced features of these low-cost PC programmable RF and microwave test devices.
Lab Bricks function as RF digital attenuators, signal generators, switches, phase shifters, matrix switches, and power dividers, and start as low $399.00. They are available for immediate purchase and delivery directly from our website at www.vaunix.com
