The defence industry has exceptionally high connectivity demands, especially when it comes to size, weight and power (SWaP). Smiths Interconnect is an industry-leading provider of cutting-edge connectivity solutions to the defence sector for applications such as guidance systems, data links, manpack radios, radar systems (ground, air and shipboard), antenna systems and drones.
As the best thermal conductor on earth and with a low dielectric constant, diamond makes an excellent RF dielectric material for high-frequency applications, especially when thermal performance is critical. Utilizing a thin film process, Smiths Interconnect has created a high-performance line of diamond RF resistive terminations, attenuators, and resistors.Product Details
Smiths Interconnect’s state-of-the-art RF Filters, including the Planar X filters range, are subject to rigorous design, manufacturing, and inspection criteria. The Planar X Series are board-level, ceramic-based RF Filters. Their small footprint, lightweight and surface mountable configuration make them ideal for high volume pick-and-place applications.Product Details
The passive, surface mountable temperature variable attenuators require no bias or control and used in place of a standard chip attenuator to combine level setting/buffering and temperature compensation.Product Details
