Resistors and Terminations

Low and high power RF resistors and terminations including surface mount chips, tab & cover chips, flange mounted and rod types. These resistors are available with Alumina, ALN, BeO and CVD substrate materials. The  CTX Series of high frequency wire bondable chip terminations, HR-CTX Series of high frequency high reliability wire bondable chip terminations and CTX SMT Series of high frequency surface mount chip terminations are optimized to combine high frequency, and power in a small package.

    Optical Interconnect Design Challenges in Space

    Aeronautical applications face many design challenges that are unique to their intended environment. The best practices for optical interconnect design for space applications include the use of radiation-resistant technology to defend against space radiation, the use of components and devices that are designed to operate in harsh environments, and meeting size, weight, and power (SWaP) and long-term reliability requirements. Finally, it is recommended to follow open standards like VPX and to look for solutions that comply with MIL and quality standards.
