Mini-Circuits has expanded the company’s offering of surface-mount couplers with a series of stripline-based models providing extremely high power handling in a miniature, low-profile printed laminate form factor. Model BDCH-35-272 is a bi-directional coupler which achieves 150 W RF power handling for applications from 700 to 2700 MHz including DAS, transmission signal monitoring, antenna reflection monitoring and more.
The coupler measures only 1.0 x 0.5 x 0.051” and provides 0.2 dB mainline loss, 23 dB return loss, and 18 dB directivity. The unit has a wide operating temperature range from -55 up to +105°C, making it suitable for use near high power componentry where high temperature is common.
