z15RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support fora 50 W, surface mount, directional coupler serving 14.5 to 19.7 GHz applications. The EMC Technology DN05Z15F provides a 15 dB coupling factor with only 0.5 dB insertion loss in the main band of 15 to 19 GHz. Directivity is a strong, 28 dB min. Maximum VSWR in the DN05Z15F main band is 1.3:1. As a purely passive device, reliability is assured. The DN05Z15F operating temperature is -55 to +85 degrees Celsius.

EMC passive couplers offer highly repeatable, low loss alternatives to microstrip-on-PCB solutions. SMT devices bypass the challenge of transitioning from coplanar waveguide transmission lines to edge-coupled lines commonly used in high frequency designs.

EMC offers a variety of surface mount directional couplers and hybrids for multiple applications including power monitors, signal distribution, antenna feeds and switching networks.
