RFMW announced availability of the Knowles –Dielectric Laboratories (DLI), surface mount, high frequency, gain equalizer series. Offering a variety of nominal gain slope from 1 to 3.5 dB, all devices in the series are footprint interchangeable. The AEQ05472 has a bandwidth from DC to 18 GHz with low frequency insertion loss of 0.25 dB and 3.5 dB slope. Designed as small, low cost solutions using precision thin-film conductor and resistor films, their proprietary, high dielectric constant ceramics provide superior RF performance in applications such as broadband EW, ECM, ECCM microwave modules. Equalizers allow compensation circuits to correct for loss slope created by other elements within a circuit, such as in amplifier stages. Well suited for use with pick and place equipment, they are SMT mountable with conductive epoxy and solder. The AEQ05472 surface mount package measures 28 x 16 x 7mm.
