Further enhancing it’s offering of 40 GHz passive products, AtlanTecRF has introduced directional couplers with frequency capability up to 40 GHz in a number of bands including 18 to 40, 6 to 40, 2 to 40 and the ultra-wide band version 1 to 40 GHz. Each frequency range in the new AKC series is available in a choice of 10, 20 or 30 dB coupling and the lightweight units feature aluminium housings and 2.92 mm stainless steel female connectors.
Launching the series, AtlanTecRF’s Marketing Co-ordinator, Karen McDermott said, “This new and versatile range of directional couplers will have applications in so many fields that it’s difficult to enumerate them but we anticipate a big uptake from microwave engineers across the board.”
Coupling accuracy and flatness are +/-1.0 dB max across the individual bands, while typical VSWR is 1.5:1 and power handling capability is 30 W.
The wide operating temperature range of -55 to +85 C enables use in difficult environments as does the miniature and rugged construction with 18-40 GHz unit sizes down to just 28 x 15 x 11mm.
