BAW Devices

BawCatalogclickhereTeledyne’s Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) Product Line has been producing BAW delay devices since the early 1960’s. Over the years, Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) has constantly improved BAW technology and is currently the world’s only supplier of microwave bulk acoustic wave delay devices. Markets for BAW devices include instrumentation and radar altimeters and are available in connectorized, pin and surface mount configurations.

TMS BAW DEVICES AT-A-GLANCE

BAW2

  • FREQUENCY: 0.3GHz to 17GHz
  • DELAY: 0.1µS to 13µS
  • TECHNOLOGY: Bulk Acoustic Wave

  • PLATFORMS: Ground, Airborne, Marine
  • APPLICATIONS: Military, Commercial, Radar Altimeters, T&M
  • EXPORT CLASSIFICATION: EAR99 & EAR
  • INTEGRATION WITH OTHER PRODUCTS: Isolators & Amplifiers

BAW devices operate as low as 300 MHz and as high as 17 GHz, usually in sub-bands of around 10%. Depending on the delay and frequency of operation the insertion loss is in the range 30 dB to 90 dB.

The basic microwave acoustic delay device form consists of a cylindrical rod of suitable transmission material (usually sapphire or quartz crystals) for the propagation of the acoustic wave. At the ends of the rod are transducers for converting electromagnetic energy to acoustic energy. Electrical matching networks, or filters, are attached to each of the transducers for coupling to the external microwave circuit.

These devices have a unique characteristic that are very valuable in Instrumentation and Airborne applications. TMS continues to support these markets while looking for new applications for these truly fascinating microwave devices.

Linearizers

Gain Shape Linearizer Amplifiers are used in a number of applications where it's necessary to flatten the gain characteristic of the preceding or following component. This would include flattening the attenuation of a long cable run, or perhaps changing the input gain response to a MPM (Microwave Power Module) or TWT (Traveling Wave Tube) to compensate for the gain variation within the tube.

Linearizer

  • FREQUENCY: 10MHz to 35GHz
  • BANDWIDTH: Narrow Band to Multi-Octave
  • GAIN SHAPE: Linear, Parabolic and Custom
  • POWER: 1W to 10KW
  • CONFIGURATION/PACKAGING: Connectorized
  • PLATFORMS: Ground, Airborne, Marine, Space
  • EXPORT CLASSIFICATION: Ear99 & ITAR

KEY FEATURES

One unique service Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) offers is the ability to individually match a gain characteristic to a given tube's performance. This is done using Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) to calculate the gain needed at any particular frequency in order to maintain an overall flatness across the whole operating band. This is done without the need for the tube to be provided to TMS; all we need is the gain characteristics of the individual tube.

Many gain shapes are available to compensate for many different interactions with gain.
