dB Control will feature two new products In Booth 5102from its line of RF/Microwave components and assemblies:

  • Detector Logarithmic Video Amplifiers (DLVA) and Successive DLVAs (SDLVA) are compact, environmentally sealed packages featuring limited RF output, excellent absolute accuracy and log linearity. Available in both broadband and narrow band configurations, these DLVAs and SDLVAs are ideal for electronic warfare (EW), signal intelligence (SIGINT), instantaneous frequency measurement (IFM) receivers and other applications that require a fast response and relatively flat frequency response.
  • RF PIN Diode switches and assemblies are high-power, environmentally sealed broadband and narrow band products designed to ensure accurate test and measurement of multiple RF components used in radar systems, EW systems, ground-based communications systems and other applications. All units feature integral TTL and field-replaceable connectors that allow easy removal so units can be dropped into designs to interface directly with pins, saving considerable space. Customized integrated switch assemblies include matrices, filter banks, switched amplifiers and hybrid switched power dividers.

“Organizations that need RF/microwave components and microwave subsystems often have difficulty identifying standard catalog solutions that will perform optimally, or even fit adequately, within their specific systems. dB Control works with each customer to balance their design requirements with cost and performance trade-offs, producing custom layouts that adhere to their specifications. We achieve this by using a fielded, Mil-Qualified modular design approach that enables increased flexibility to achieve challenging requirements, combining proven designs with intuitive customization that optimizes SWaP,” said dB Control Director of Sales, Custom Products and Components Jeff Bly.
