Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 3 dB hybrid coupler from Anaren.

The low profile, high performance X3C25F1-03S, the latest Femto-sized coupler in the Xinger® III family of products from Anaren, has been miniaturized to a 3 mm x 5 mm footprint without sacrificing electrical performance. It is designed for Small Cell, LTE and WIMAX applications, specifically balanced power and low noise amplifiers, plus signal distribution and other applications where low insertion loss and tight amplitude and phase balance is required. It can be used in high power applications up to 25 watts.

Key features of the X3C25F1-03S include:

  • Frequency range: 2.3 GHz to 2.7 GHz
  • Power: 25W
  • Isolation: 26 dB
  • Insertion loss: 0.15 dB
  • VSWR: 1.12:1
  • Phase: 90 º
  • Amplitude balance: +/-0.3 dB
  • Footprint: 3.18 mm x 5.06 mm (0.200" x 0.125")

The new device has been subjected to rigorous qualification testing and is manufactured using materials with coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) compatible with common substrates such as FR4, G-10, RF-35, RO4003 and polyimide.
