5G Mitigation Filter for C-Band

A1 Microwave has expanded their range of C-Band receive filters for satellite ground installations to include off-the-shelf components that are fully compliant with the RED and BLUE spectrum masks. In addition to the close-in 5G rejection, they also feature transmit band rejection as well as X-Band radar for use in naval applications. This includes a recent trial for the UK Royal Navy as well as hundreds of installations on cruise ships and terrestrial news-gathering equipment.

Ultra-Wideband 16-Way Power Divider/Combiner

The MIcable 6 to 40 GHz ultra-wideband 16-way power divider/combiner P16N060400 can accept a 6 to 40 GHz signal and deliver 16 output signals with extremely good amplitude unbalance (±0.3 dB typical) and phase unbalance (±6 degrees typical). Due to wide bandwidth, excellent VSWR (< 1.3:1 typical), insertion loss (> 5 dB typical) and isolation (> 18 dB typical), it can be widely applied in 5G, testing, instruments and other related fields that need wideband high performance signal distribution network.

Power Splitter

Mini-Circuits’ model SPL-2G42G50W4+ is a coaxial active power splitter with more than 360 degrees and a phase-shift range from 2.4 to 2.5 GHz. With an I2C control interface, it tunes phase with 1 degrees resolution, with 165 degrees of the range continuously variable. The active power splitter adjusts attenuation in 0.5 dB steps over a minimum 30 dB range. The active power splitter is equipped with MCX female connectors and exhibits 1 dB typical insertion loss. It draws 650 mA typical current from a +5 VDC supply.

Lowpass Filters

Richardson RFPD Inc., an Arrow Electronics company, announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two families of lowpass filters from CTS Corporation. The RLF and XLF series are optimized to support 3GPP standards that require harmonic suppression through fifth-order harmonics. Both series provide complete solutions for harmonic rejection for wireless infrastructure applications. The RLF family offers extremely low insertion loss (3 to 5 dB, maximum) and superior close-in rejection and attenuation. They are suitable for up to 20 W of average power and 200 W of peak modulated power.
