Developing cutting-edge Defense and Aerospace technology
Renesas' history and experience in the space, defense and aerospace industries spans decades, beginning with the founding of Radiation, Inc. in 1950 through the recent acquisition of IDT’s industry-leading RF and microwave portfolio. Renesas leverages this experience to deliver efficient, thermally optimized and reliable SMD, MIL-STD-883 (/883) and Class-V/Q products for the defense, high-reliability (Hi-Rel), and radiation hardened / space marketplaces.
Renesas' RF products are best-in-class in dealing with unwanted interference from an increasingly crowded radio spectrum. Today’s higher data rates drive the need for better radio signal-to-noise ratios, which translates to the need for IDT’s higher linearity RF components. RF solutions from IDT address the evolving needs of a wide range of applications, including cellular 4G and 5G base stations, Active Antenna Systems for both sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies, and Satcom phased array antennas.
Patented, Industry-leading RF Innovations:
Glitch-Free™ Technology: IDT’s digital step attenuators (DSA) virtually eliminate transient overshoot that occurs during MSB attenuation state transitions of standard DSAs. With Glitch-Free technology, amplifier damage and loss of information at the ADC are avoided.
FlatNoise™ Technology: IDT’s variable gain amplifier (VGA) noise figure is kept virtually flat in the critical region, while gain is reduced. This greatly eases design constraints for radio engineers by enhancing signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
Zero-Distortion™ Technology: IDT’s RF amplifiers and RF mixers improve SNR by reducing the noise floor and third order intermodulation distortion. This is important for crowded spectrum environments, as it enhances quality-of-service (QoS) and frees up under-utilized spectrum.
K|Z| Constant Impedance Technology: IDT’s RF switches maintain nearly constant impedance when switching between RF ports. By controlling the impedance during the switching process voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), transients are minimized. This improves switch reliability, reduces voltage stresses on downstream components, and improves overall system performance.
KLIN Constant Linearity Technology: IDT’s variable gain amplifiers maintain constant high linearity as gain is adjusted. As the gain is reduced, the linearity (OIP3) remains constant in the critical region. This prevents intermodulation distortion from degrading as the gain is reduced.
