Johanson Releases Front-End Integrated Passive for Semtech’s SX1261, SX1262, and LLCC68 Chipsets

With the development of new applications and smaller end product form-factors, Johanson Technology Inc. has developed an impedance matched filter/balun Integrated Passive Device (IPD) for Semtech’s Long Range Low Power LoRa® and LoRa Smart Home™ RF transceivers SX1261, SX1262, and LLCC68. Our p/n: 0900FM15D0039 pairs seamlessly, considerably reducing the overall PCB space utilization area, and component count. With this device, the entire front end RF matching, balun, and filter network is reduced to a single EIA 0805 (2.0mm x 1.25mm) SMT component. This device is very temperature stable, cost effective, and provides compliant FCC and ETSI regulatory emissions requirements.

A detailed Application Note (AN100) with measured 868 and 915Mhz output power results, design implementation, and layout guidance can be found here: https://www.johansontechnology.com/downloads/app-notes/jti-an100.pdf

Johanson launches WiFi6 Band Pass Filter
In order to bring greater speeds, larger number of devices connected at once, and better communications efficiency, next generation WiFi-6 (IEEE 802.11ax) has become the answer. Short range, latency sensitive devices that use these new family of wireless Wi-Fi RF chipsets will require proper filtering for optimum FCC/ETSI compliance in a small footprint. As a solution to this, Johanson has released its first ceramic SMT BPF using a novel proprietary material. This newly developed LTCC allows one to pack HiQ type L/Cs in a monolithic cost effective device. This filter p/n: 6530BP44A1190 has a passband of 5925-7125MHz while rejecting other interfering bands.

Johanson releases multi-constellation embedded antenna
The need for signal reception of more than one satellite system has become standard practice. As a response to this, JTI has developed a surface mount (SMT) antenna that operates from 1560 to 1605MHz. This means, our newest chip antenna p/n: 1582AT54A0045 can function at GPS, GLONASS (GNSS), BeiDou (BDS), and Galileo. New navigation radio receivers are smaller, more precise and low energy consumption, which means our ceramic antenna size of 15x4x 3.2mm goes very well for portable applications such as tracking systems.

Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus, we regret to announce that Johanson Technology will not be exhibiting at OFC San Diego, CA this year. We deeply value the opportunity to meet with you at the show. However, with the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking this precautionary measure to ensure the health and safety of our team members, partners and customers. This is a very, very difficult decision for us as OFC is a very important event for us. We wish everyone a safe well-being as we all mutually work through the coronavirus outbreak. For those of you who have contracted the virus, we wish you a speedy recovery.


Johanson Technology Release new mini UWB + 2.4GHz antenna

Adding more functionality to handheld, worn, portable devices in an ever shirking form factors has limited the antenna performance one achieve on such small devices. These devices such as keyless remote entry (keyfob), portable payment systems, asset tracking, location services need the necessary range to perform correctly in application. To solve these problems Johanson has come out with mini chip antenna p/n: 2450AD18A7250. This component is 3.2x1.6x0.5mm, occupies a total area on the PCB of 12x4mm, and provide excellent UWB + 2.4GHz radiation performance.

Multiple frequency, protocol, and functionality solutions for IoT connectivity continues to push the size and performance limit. To address this, we've developed a multi-band flexible solution using one antenna (p/n 0830AT54A2200). This solution covers Cellular (LTE), Sub-GHz (868/915MHz), GPS and/or GNSS (GLONASS), 2.4GHz (Bluetooth and/or WiFi) using 1 SMT Chip antenna and 2 six channel RF switches. The entire solution requires a PCB area of about 360mm2, making it very compact with industry-accepted radiated gain and efficiency in a 51x51mm board.

In a collaborative effort with Texas Instruments, Johanson Technology developed a compact, easy to implement front-end Integrated Passive Component (IPC) which embeds the required complex matching and L/C circuits. This IPC (0900PC15A0036) is featured in Texas Instruments' newly released Wireless Sensor Kit, the SimpleLink™.

As global positioning systems become more accurate and intentionally redundant, the need for operation at more than one satellite constellation is a must in radio receivers. JTI has release a  GPS, GLONASS (GNSS), BEIDOU (BDS), and GALILEO 90-degree hybrid coupler for antenna systems and modules. This EIA 0805 (metric 2012) SMD component fits easily in small form-factor, including portable or handheld applications.

Because 2.4GHz applications have gotten more and more sophisticated, Johanson Technology has launched its first 2440MHz directional patch antenna. This 12x12x4mm SMD component will radiate mostly in the +Z direction. In other words, the majority of the radiation pattern (3.5dBi) will occur directly above the component where one can design-in with certain predictability. It is surface mount (SMT) and can solve unique application requirements for smart lock access, IoT, BLE, Bluetooth location beacon, lighting, drones, LoRa®, Zigbee, indoor location, etc.

This component encompasses an impedance matching network, balun, and Low Pass Filter (LPF) in a small, 1.6x0.8x0.6mm SMT package that significantly reduces PCB space usage, guarantees filtering (FCC/ETSI compliance), and prevents manufacturing variability. Go to: www.johansontechnology.com/ti for the datasheet and reference design (by request).


Johanson High-Q Capacitance Matching

To use a high-Q capacitor at higher frequencies, a common solution is to replace it with several capacitors that have lower values arranged in a parallel position. For example, a 30pF capacitor can be replaced with three 10pF capacitors.
At Johanson, we have the ability to use capacitors with a wider capacitance tolerance and match them. This leads to a tighter tolerance for the overall capacitance value. For instance, we can use three capacitors at 10pF with a 5% tolerance and match them to get 30pF with a 1% tolerance. The result is an increase in frequency range, while keeping the cost down. We can deliver these matched capacitors in a matched set (small and medium size capacitors), or already mounted in a capacitor assembly (large size capacitors, i.e. 2525 and 3838).

100V GBBL SLCs for Optical Modules

Extended range Receive Optical Sub-Assemblies (ROSAs) for fiber optic network systems require high sensitivity Avalanche Photo-Diode (APD) detectors instead of the standard PIN-diode detector. To improve detector sensitivity, the bias to an APD must have a high capacitance broadband filter on the power input to the device. This filter prevents high-frequency noise getting to the APD via the power input and interfering with the incoming signal. JTI SLCs using our GBBL dielectric fit the capacitance and broadband requirements for PIN-diode detector input power filtering and the VCC filtering for the associated signal processor. With the 63V and 100V ratings now available, GBBL capacitors can now also be used for the input power filtering on an APD device. Production volumes are shipping and samples are available from stock.
