Broadband CW Signal Synthesizers

The SC801A and SC802A fully integrated broadband CW signal synthesizers are the smallest in their class with the best phase noise on the market. Their miniature surface-mountable package measures only 2.75” x 1.75” x 0.31”.

The SC801A frequency range is 625 MHz to 10 GHz, while the SC802A range is from 1.25 GHz to 20 GHz, both tuning at 1 mHz resolution with typical phase noise < -115 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset of a 10 GHz signal.


Digitally Tuned Phase Shifter

PMI Model No. PS-812-360-14B-SFF OPT10D27 is a Digitally Tuned Phase Shifter that operates from 8.0 to 12.0 GHz, optimized for 10.27 GHz, and has a survival input power level of +30 dBm and an insertion loss of 12 dB. This unit is tuned using 14-bit (+3.3 V RS-422 Control) through a 44-Pin High-I Density D-Sub male connector and has SMA female connectors in a housing of 3.25" x 2.00" x 0.50".

Fast, Accurate & Traceable Power Sensors, 9 kHz to 50 GHz

LadyBug Technologies designs, develops, and manufactures a broad range of first tier NIST traceable USB power sensors. Our power sensors do not require a separate power meter, they instead function as a complete power measurement solution using s software application on a PC, instrument or ATE (Automated Test Equipment) system. As such they are referred to as Power Meters or Power Sensors.

Qorvo® to Create State-of-the-Art Semiconductor Packaging Center

Qorvo® has been selected by the U.S. government to create a State-of-the-Art (SOTA) Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging (SHIP) RF production and prototyping center. The SHIP program will ensure that microelectronics packaging expertise and leadership is available for both U.S. defense contractors and commercial clients that require design, validation, assembly, test and manufacturing of next-generation RF components.

The exclusive SHIP Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), worth up to $75 million, was awarded to Qorvo by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division. This program is funded by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering’s (OUSD R&E) Trusted and Assured Microelectronics Program (T&AM), and is administered by the Strategic & Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted System (S²MARTS) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), managed by National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL).

Under the SHIP program, Qorvo will design and deliver the highest levels of heterogeneous packaging integration. This is essential to meet the size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) requirements for next-generation phased array radar systems, unmanned vehicles, electronic warfare platforms and satellite communications.
