LEWISVILLE, Texas – Fairview Microwave Inc. in Lewisville, Texas, is introducing a line of bi-phase modulators for military and commercial communications systems, microwave radio, radar, high-data-rate test and measurement, serial data transmission, and wireless base station infrastructure.
These bi-phase modulators cover octave frequency bands from 0.5 to 40 GHz, and use TTL logic to phase modulate data onto an RF carrier signal using two-phase shift keying (2PSK).
Fairview Microwave's series of 0-to-180-degree bi-phase modulators consists of nine RF and microwave models with performance that includes low insertion loss of 2.5 dB typical, fast switching speed of 40 nanoseconds typical, low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of 1.8:1 typical, 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 use solder pins for TTL control, DC bias and ground, and field replaceable SMA or 2.92-millimeter female connectors.
These bi-phase modulators operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. All models are reliable, and meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for humidity, shock, vibration, altitude, and temperature cycle.
