Fairview Microwave Inc. has released the new line of bi-phase modulators that cover the broad octave frequency bands from 0.5 to 40GHz. These new devices use TTL logic to phase modulate data onto an RF carrier signal using 2 phase-shift keyings (2PSK).


The new series includes nine models of 0° to 180° bi-phase modulators that deliver impressive performance such as low insertion loss of 2.5 dB typical, the fast switching speed of 40 nsec typ, low VSWR of 1.8:1 typ 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.


The new Bi-phase modulators come in compact and rugged packages that utilize solder pins for TTL control, DC bias, ground, and field-replaceable SMA or 2.92 mm female connectors. With high reliability, all the models meet the MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions for humidity, shock, vibration, altitude, and temperature cycle.


The new Bi-phase modulators can be used in a variety of applications like military and commercial communications systems, microwave radio, radar, high-data-rate test and measurement, serial data transmission, and wireless base station infrastructure
