Pharad's Quarterly Newsletter                         Volume 2, Issue 4, Fall 2012
Visit us at AUSA and MILCOM!  

We would like to extend an invitation to visit us at our two upcoming tradeshows, where we will be displaying our latest innovations, including our portfolio of UAV antennas, gooseneck antennas, and wearable antennas. 


We will be exhibiting at AUSA again this year in Washington, DC on October 22 - 24. Our booth number is 4338 located in the lower Exhibit Hall.



The week after AUSA, we will be returning to MILCOM in Orlando, FL on October 29 - November 1 at booth number 1313. 

Pharad's Peel & Stick Antenna Technology Now Offered for Redeployable Applications

Due to the popularity of our recently introduced Peel & Stick Appliqu antennas, we have expanded the product's capabilities to offer a redeployable option. With this option, we provide users the ability to re-use the antenna and move to another platform. Pharad already offers the Peel & Stick Appliqu� antennas configured with a durable one-time use pressure sensitive adhesive on one side of the radiator. The permanent adhesion provides an ideal solution for UAV or other applications where the antenna needs to be permanently positioned on its platform.  

All of Pharad's Peel & Stick Appliqu� antennas provide a high quality radiating solution, while still being nearly as thin as a piece of paper (less than 10 mils thick) and also very lightweight; weighing less than 1 oz. The antennas are suitable for non-metallic and non-carbon fiber composite surfaces such as those constructed of fiberglass, Kevlar, or polypropylene; materials commonly for small UAVs. Pharad offers nine models of the ultra-thin antennas which cover the multi-band frequency range of 350 - 6000 MHz.

Pharad Now Offers Four Dither-Free Modulator Bias Controller Models
Pharad has extended its range of easy-to-use dither-free modulator bias controllers for OEM applications.

Model MBC-DF-UC:
Ultra-Compact Bias Controller  
The bias controllers work to automatically adjust the modulator bias voltage and maintain its set point as it drifts over time. Since the boards feature dither-free control, the pilot tones found in conventional bias controllers are avoided, making the Pharad models the ideal solution for high performance analog fiber optic links.

The Pharad OEM bias controllers eliminate the need for user supplied external optical couplers, allowing them to be readily integrated into systems. They provide accurate and highly stable bias voltage control of electro-optic modulators and operate with devices having both periodic and non-periodic transfer functions, including lithium niobate and gallium arsenide modulators.

Model MBC-DF-DM:
Direct Mount Bias Controller 
The Pharad dither-free bias controller OEM boards are offered in two form factors; an ultra-compact version and a direct mount configuration that provides sufficient space for directly attaching the modulator. Continuous tuning of the modulator bias voltage is enabled via a standard RS-232 communications interface. Ethernet control of the modulator bias point is also available as an option.
