Crane A & E Microwave Solutions expands Ku-Band Iso-Divider product family

March 18, 2015

Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solutions continues to expand the Ku-Band Iso-Divider product family with the introduction of an 8-way unit. Featuring similar outstanding performance as the previously introduced 4- and 2-way products, exceptional insertion loss and band flatness performance is continued in this product. Small size, low weight and high reliability are features that are crucial for the target space applications.

The Iso-Divider combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators to provide a high isolation power divider solution, making the external isolators redundant, for satellite receiver applications, without introducing complex switch-based solutions. Integration of the two functions into a single package provides enhanced product reliability due to fewer external components, interconnects and transitions. Additionally, marrying the power divider and isolators in the same package allows the performance of the integrated unit to be carefully matched and better overall performance can be obtained. Size and weight of the new product are considerably less than an equivalent discrete assembly.

“Our Chandler and West Caldwell operations continue to expand the Iso-Divider product line to provide our customers with a comprehensive integrated solution offering enhanced performance and smaller physical size and weight,” said Mike Clark, Microwave Solutions vice president. “Our Microwave team continues to demonstrate providing critical multi-function building blocks for advanced system architectures.”
