Microwave gain horn antennas feature lightweight construction

Link Microtek, the manufacturer of RF and microwave components and subsystems, has introduced a new series of lightweight microwave gain horn antennas that have been specifically designed for use in military airborne applications.

Featuring a thin-walled aluminium construction, the AM-LHA series horn antennas are half the weight of standard aluminium gain horns and only a fifth of the weight of traditional brass alternatives. They provide a mid-band gain of 20dB and are available with rectangular waveguide inputs ranging in size from WR650 to WR28, covering microwave frequencies from 1.2 to 40.0GHz.

Fabricated from flat metal sheet to provide superior repeatability and accuracy, these precision-engineered horns come as standard with an Iridite coating and a choice of paint finishes. Wall thickness is just 1mm, while horn lengths range from 84mm for the 40GHz model to 1989mm for the 1.2GHz model.

The horn antennas can be supplied with a variety of waveguide-to-coaxial adapters, and Link Microtek also offers a custom design service to satisfy individual requirements for parameters such as gain, beamwidth and frequency coverage.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
