Atlanta Micro introduces 3 passive bandpass filters implemented on chip that provide low loss and high rejection in miniature packages. These filters are useful as an IF filter in any RF system for image, LO and spur rejection. All 3 are AC coupled and matched to 50 ohms and operate over the -40°C to +100°C temperature range. AM3056 features 1 GHz center frequency, 500 MHz bandwidth and 5 mm QFN AM3055 features 2 GHz center frequency, 1 GHz bandwidth and 5 mm QFN. AM3188 features 3 GHz center frequency, 1 GHz bandwidth and 4 mm QFN.
New programmable attenuators – standard frequency models are available covering 10 MHz to 21 GHz and provide either 31.5 or 63 dB of attenuation over the full frequency range. Units are fully programmable by the user. Model MLAT-1000A 10 MHz to 21 GHz / 31.5 dB attenuation, Model MLAT-1000B 10 MHz to 21 GHz / 63 dB attenuation. Applications include wideband receivers, automated test systems, telecom, satcom, UAVs and drones and a variety of military and commercial test applications.

Mini-Circuits’ model ZC3PD-V24443+ is a 0° DC-pass three-way power splitter/combiner for applications from 24 to 44 GHz. The RoHS-compliant power splitter/combiner provides typical isolation of 32 dB between ports across the full frequency range. Typical full-band insertion loss (above the 4.8 dB three-way power division loss) is 1.2 dB. Full-band VSWR at all ports is typically 1.14:1 or better. The three-way power splitter/combiner maintains low phase unbalance of typically 3.1 deg across the full bandwidth with excellent amplitude unbalance of typically 0.25 dB.
Features broadband >18 dB return loss <1.5 dB IL loss with phase and amplitude match for 75 ohm RF high powered wideband signals. MiniRF offers the MRFXF0086 transformer in a std 0.250 × 0.280 SMD package. Designed to operate over temperature range of -40°C to 85°C with minimal variation. It is ideal for output balanced amplifier circuit applications transforming high impedance amplifiers to 75 ohms. Contact MiniRF for samples.
PMI Model No. QC-5010-NFF is a hybrid coupler that operates over the 5 to 10 GHz frequency range. It has a maximum insertion loss of 1.1 dB and a minimum isolation of 16 dB. This model is outfitted with N female connectors in a housing measuring 1.870” × 1.315” × 0.787”.
