Johanson Technology announces the 2450FB15L0001 Matched Balun Filter. This device was designed for Atmel® Corporation ‘s AT86RF23X range of Wireless Transceivers for IEEE 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN, Zigbee®, RF4CE, SP100, WirelessHART and other ISM Applications at the popular 2.45GHZ band. Insertion Loss is 1.5dB (abs max) with 2nd and 3rd harmonic rejection of 20dB min and is housed in 6-pin 2.0 x 1.25 x 0.8 mm casing.
This ceramic chip matched balun filter, when used in combination with Atmel’s one of AT86RF23X chips, provides customers with a highly integrated, more robust and cost effective solution. More specifically, it utilization can lead to improved production yields due to elimination of the effects of variations in individual components and placement variations.
“The new balun filter products from Johanson Technology represents a perfect match to the Atmel’s wireless products enabling cost effective and compact products designs for our customers”, said Magnus Pedersen, Atmel’s Product Marketing Director Wireless Solutions. “Combined with the very efficient ceramic antennas, this gives customers a cutting edge designing solutions for wireless applications such as Smart Energy, Building Automation, Telecommunications and Personal Healthcare”, he added.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
