During these unprecedented times, Trilight Microwave wanted to ensure continued supply of our components to all customers. We have completed due diligence with our suppliers and are happy to inform you that for the time being the supply of products on order, and future orders will be uninterrupted. This of course is subject to any future directions given by the Swedish government regarding the flow of goods in to and out of the country, and of any governments with jurisdiction at the point of manufacture.

Trilight have instigated social distancing in the office and appropriate cleaning methods are being employed in any shared areas in the office / warehouse. Where possible home working is now the norm to minimise personnel in the office, and travel has been minimised to only absolutely essential journeys.

If you would like added security in supply, Trilight offer stocking capabilities, ensuring the components will reside in Europe, and a fast turn around for customers. In addition, if you have future planned demand, Trilight will be able to investigate current stock levels for additional security of supply for you. Please contact your local Trilight employee for further information.

—Integra Technologies is one of very few manufacturers which offer volume production of GaN, LDMOS and Si Bipolar as in-house standard processes.

Several active device semiconductor technologies are available today to amplify pulsed and continuous-wave (CW) signals across narrow or wide bandwidths from HF/VHF/UHF to L-, S-, C-, and X-band frequencies and beyond
But while more recent power-transistor technologies such as GaN are dominating new system designs, knowledge and insight on well-established, legacy semiconductor technologies such as silicon bipolar, Si LDMOS/VDMOS transistors are still invaluable to any high power amplifier (HPA) designer today.

Thermal management becomes the common denominator between the two, and although different types of RF/microwave power transistors are capable of high-power efficiency, no power transistor is 100% power efficient, as some DC and RF power supplied to a power transistor will always be lost as heat. Amplifying CW signals, or long-pulse length and/or high-duty-cycle pulses, will result in more heat from one transistor technology than another and will vary when compared to handling short pulses or low-duty-cycle pulses. So, in many cases, certain proven silicon devices are still the most ideal choice.
So, while the silicon bipolar junction transistor (Si BJT) might be recognized as legacy technology in comparison to today’s more advanced gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) RF power semiconductor technology, it is by no means an obsolete technology. For example, Si BJT amplifiers have the smallest and lowest-cost circuits and only need a single positive supply voltage.

Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI), a Modelithics® Vendor Partner (MVP), is now offering design engineers a Free 90-Day Trial license for the Modelithics PPI Component Library. This will provide PPI customers access to extremely accurate scalable simulation models for Passive Plus capacitors with advanced features that enable a more precise and rapid design process.

The Modelithics® Vendor Partner (MVP) Program promoted collaboration and open communication between Passive Plus and Modelithics during the development of advanced data sets and Modelithics Microwave Global Models ™ for Passive Plus capacitors. Through the MVP Program, Passive Plus is also sponsoring free trials of these models to approved customers.

The Microwave Global Models include every part value in a series and permit users to input substrate thickness, dielectric constant, and loss tangent, as well as mounting pad layout dimensions. Selected models also include capacitor orientation – vertical or horizontal – as an input. Engineers can request FREE use of the models, by either visiting the Passive Plus Resources page (http://passiveplus.com/addldocs_resources.php) or the Passive Plus MVP page on the Modelithics® website ( http://www.modelithics.com/mvp/PassivePlus/) by clicking on “FREE TRIAL”.
