Redbox Series Regulator Kits and Amplifier

RedBox Regulator Kits

Crystek's new RedBox series regulators offer DC voltage regulation integrated in a rugged connectorized SMA housing. Simply connect the 6 VDC wall adapter to the input using the adapter cable and it will provide a clean dual regulated 250 mA DC output at the specified voltage. Available off the shelf in 1.8/2.5 VDC and 3.3/5.0 VDC. Perfect for lab use when a dual DC output power supply is required.

The Regulators are offered from Digi-Key in a kit that includes all items required to provide a DC power supply solution.

Crystek continues to enhance its product portfolio with the release of the RedBox Amplifier. Crystek's model CRBAMP-100-6000 is a low-noise general purpose connectorized amplifier covering a frequency range of 100 MHz to 6 GHz. The amplifier is housed in a custom aluminum enclosure (1.25" x 1.25" x 0.59") with 3 SMA connectors for both input and output as well as the power supply input. The unit operates from a single +5V supply consuming only 60 mA.

This broadband, low-noise amplifier has a small signal gain of 18 dB with an output power of 17 dBm (P1 dB). It features a typical noise figure of 3.5 dB with an IP3 of +30 dBm.

Applications include IF or RF buffer amplifiers, base stations, high reliability applications and general lab use for in-house testing.
