Optical Bench Integrated Housing: ULSi
The ULSi is a new type of integrated housing used to house Avantes’ AvaSpec Avabench-75 ULS (ultra-low stray light) optical bench in a 90 x 120 x 35 mm package. It provides superior thermal and mechanical stability, as well as greater mounting flexibility.
Miniature Spectrometer: AvaSpec-Micro
To say that the AvaSpec-Micro spectrometer is small would be a huge understatement. This miniature spectrometer measures in at only 62 x 42 x 14.8 mm and weighs only 58 grams. It’s ideal for OEMs that need to comply with space and weight reduction constraints in color measurement, chemical analysis, and environmental analysis applications.
Low Noise Step-Down Converter: SKY87250
This step-down converter features low noise, a light load architecture, an input voltage range of 2.7-5.5V, an adjustable output voltage of 0.6 V to VIN, up to 95% efficiency, an easy to use integrated DC-DC regulator, a 50µA no-load quiescent current, and more.
Ultra High Stability OCXO: Model 122
This OCXO (oven controlled crystal oscillator) covers the 8 MHz to 100 MHz frequency range and features ultra-high stability (- to + 0.2 ppb over -10oC to +60oC), a low aging rate (- to + 0.2 ppb/day, + 0.03 ppm/year), a low allan variance (- up to 3E-12 at 1s), and since wave or HCMOS outputs.
Step-Down Regulator for Multi-Band/Mode RF Power Amplifiers: SKY87000
The SKY87000 is a step-down regulator with auto-bypass LDO for multi-band and multi-mode RF power amplifiers. It features a 2.7 to 5.5 V input voltage range, a 0.4 V to 4.25 V dynamic output voltage, an internally compensated current/mode architecture, an integrated 85mΩ bypass regulator, and much more.
Multiband, Multimode Front-End Modules (FEMs) for Advanced Mobile Applications
The SKY78010 and SKY78011 are multiband, multimode front end modules (FEMs) that are fully optimized and 100% RF tested. They’re both significantly smaller than the industry’s most advanced approach to FEMs, measuring in at 7 x 9.8 x 1.05 mm. They feature a 2G quad-band and 3G/4G penta-band GPIO control interface, and the world’s best linearity and PAE for smart RF integration.
Ultra-Low Noise Amplifier: SKY67151-396LF
This high performance, GaAs, pHEMT low-noise amplifier (LNA) covers the 0.7-3.8 GHz frequency range and is ideal for applications involving LTE, GSM, WCDMA, HSDPA macro and micro base stations, high temperature transceiver applications, L and S band ultra-low noise receivers, cellular repeaters, and DAS, and RRH/RRUs.
Miniature, Low Power OCXO: Model 148
This oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) covers the 8 MHz to 100 MHz frequency range and is the industry’s smallest of its kind. It utilizes a unique SC cut crystal technology to achieve low power consumption (0.23W at +25ºC) and features an incredibly compact size, allowing for additional board space.
802.11ac Enabling Front-End-Modules
