Electro-Photonics LLC announced the availability of Dragon™ high-performance SMT 90 degree hybrid couplers.

The company's engineers have combined their knowledge of materials, RF design and manufacturing to achieve an optimal balance of thermal and repeatable RF performance. Dragon couplers achieve tight coupling, low insertion loss and good phase tracking while being able to withstand high power and temperature extremes. Materials are dimensionally stable and have excellent CTE match to PTFE-based laminates, FR4 type and polyimide boards. Designed for use in commercial or military applications.

Dragon hybrid couplers are suitable for narrow and broadband power amplifier applications. Frequency range is from 30 MHz to 15.0 GHz in power levels up to 500 W.
