AKON, Inc., has announced a major addition to its web site, which highlights its expanded line of millimeter band components and assemblies, targeted at both the upcoming 5G technology rollout as well as the defense market.

AKON products are now available up to 50 GHz – including amplifiers, switches, filters, power dividers and frequency multipliers, as well as integrated assemblies such as switched filter banks and frequency converters.

Akon millimeter amplifiers are available banded in the popular 18 – 26.5 GHz, 26.5 – 40 GHz bands, as well as broadband 18 – 40 GHz and 33 – 50 GHz.  LNA noise figures are as low as 3.5 to 4.5 dB at 18 GHz and 4.5 to 5.5 dB at 40 GHz to 6.5 dB at 50 GHz.  Medium Power amplifiers can provide P-1 dB outputs from +28 dBm at 18 GHz to +23 dBm at 40 GHz and +19 dBm at 50 GHz.

Ultra-compact power dividers operate over the 18 – 26 GHz and 26 – 40 GHz bands. They provide low excess insertion loss and good port to port isolation.

Switches are available SPST through SP8T with absorptive/reflective options, high isolation options, low insertion loss and good VSWR. Switch products are full band and switching speed is typically 100 ns or better. Power handling is typically +23 dBm.
