Pasternack released a new mechanically tunable waveguide Gunn diode oscillators covering WR-90, WR-42 and WR-28 waveguide sizes with support for X, K, and Ka bands.

All models in this line operate at 50 ohms and incorporate a mechanical tuning screw to fine tune the output frequency for specialized applications.

They deliver output power levels up to +18.5 dBm and utilize Indium Phosphide (InP) Gunn diodes that generate higher output power, higher efficiency, and lower AM noise than GaAs counterparts.

These waveguide Gunn diode oscillators feature compact form factor that are consistent and designed to meet MIL-STD-202 test conditions for shock, vibration, altitude, and humidity.

They are available with operational temperature ranges from -40°C to +85°C.

According to the company, Pasternack’s new line of waveguide Gunn diode oscillators are idea for:

  • Electronic Warfare
  • Electronic Countermeasures
  • Microwave Radio Systems
  • Military and Commercial Communications System
