HXI’s HLNA Series of Low Noise Amplifiers covers the frequency ranges from 20 to 100+ GHz. A wide variety of gain and bandwidth combinations are available to provide the designer with a solution for most applications. Custom designs are available and in many cases NRE is not required. MMIC technology is employed for high reliability and repeatability.
The amplifiers can be used to lower system noise figure in communication and radar systems and also as gain blocks in LO chains and test equipment. Low noise amplifier stages can be combined with power amplifier stages for higher P1dB levels. LNAs can also be packaged with other components for custom configurations.
Each LNA contains a voltage regulator and bias sequencing circuitry allowing the use of a single bias to power the amplifier.
Series HLNA Datasheet
Renaissance has designed a high power L-band SMT Circulator that has superior electrical performance with the advantage of being pick and place process compatible. Ideal for high volume production designs and a wide band performance from 950 to 1225 MHz, this circulator is ideal for IFF band applications.
To support high sensitivity measurements, Renaissance has a high isolation SPDT that operates from DC to 4 GHz with 120 dB isolation between the input and output ports when in the ‘no connect’ state. The total loss between any of the output ports and the input port is less than 4 dB. This switch is designed by cascading multiple GaAs switches in a compact housing that has isolation walls to minimize leakage effects and enhance the required isolation. The switch is controlled by nominal TTL voltage levels. The max input power level is 4W.
Ideal for modern radars and space applications, Renaissance has designed this X-band drop-in isolator. Operating at 7.9 – 8.4 GHz, this isolator offers great temperature stability, high isolation and low insertion loss.
Renaissance has designed a high-power drop-in circulator for EW Jammer application. Covering 2.5 – 6 GHz, this isolator can handle 100 W of CW Power over -40 to +95° C. The design is covered under a US Patent that provides a broadband match and power handling using a unique steel housing.

REC’s 2A2NBG has a built-in reflected power monitor circuit that will produce up to 1 VDC @ 30W operating from 869 – 894 MHz. This feature is also available in other frequency bands.
For the next generation power amplifiers, REC has a high-power compact circulator operating between 2.3 and 3.8 GHz. This circulator can handle 90W CW and can operate from -20 to +125°C. The footprint is .875” square.
