MECA released a new family of millimeter wave power dividers, couplers, isolators, attenuators and terminations covering C- to V-Bands. The family was designed for 5G, satellite communications and backhaul applications. Offering broadband performance and rugged construction, the products enable systems to migrate to higher frequencies to support 5G and other high frequency communications systems without increasing component count.
The power dividers are available in two- and four-way splits and optimized to achieve industry-leading performance, including excellent amplitude and phase balance. Typical VSWR is 1.5:1 to 1.7:1, and isolation is 14 to 15 dB. The power dividers are available with either SMA connectors that cover 6 to 26.5 GHz or 2.92 mm connectors, which extends the frequency range to 40 GHz. For splitting applications where isolation is not required, resistive two-way splitters are available with 2.92 mm connectors that cover DC to 26.5 GHz.
Couplers in MECA’s family comprise 10 and 20 dB models optimized for low insertion loss and low frequency sensitivity from 6 to 40 GHz (using 2.92 mm connectors). VSWR is typically 1.8:1 to 1.9:1, with directivity a minimum of 12 dB across the entire band. The isolators are available in several bands, covering 18 to 26.5 GHz, 27 to 31 GHz and 26.5 to 40 GHz (with 2.92 mm connectors). For the terminations and attenuators, the frequency range extends to 40 GHz, while the bias tees span either 500 MHz to 26.5 GHz or 100 MHz to 40 GHz.
Since 1961, MECA (Microwave Equipment & Components of America) Electronics has served the RF/microwave industry with equipment and passive components covering Hz to 40 GHz. Privately held, MECA manufactures their products in the U.S. and is ISO9001:2008 certified.
