Vaunix Adds 700 MHz to 7.25 GHz Power Dividers/Combiners to Lab Brick RF Testing Devices Line

Suite of Power Dividers/Combiners

June 10, 2021

Vaunix Technology Corporation announced the release of a suite of power divider/combiner solutions to add to their growing line up of standardized, low-cost RF/microwave Lab Brick wireless testing solutions. 

Lab Brick LPD series RF power dividers/combiners start as low as $399 and have been developed for next-generation L-, S- and C-Band cellular, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi 6E test applications. Models range from rugged, miniature, connectorized designs, to full rack mount configurations. These devices can be used as 2-, 4-, 8- and 16-way splitters to simplify custom ATE stand set ups or operate as benchtop test components.

The current lineup of Vaunix power divider/combiner solutions includes:

The LPD-752-2 is a 2-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner with a frequency range of 700 to 7250 MHz featuring excellent amplitude and phase balance along with high port to port isolation.

The LPD-752-4 is a 4-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner with a tight amplitude balance of 0.5 dB and 6 degrees of phase balance. 

The LPD-752-8 is an 8-way, 0-degree power divider/combiner. The unique mechanical design offers a space saving 0.45” connector spacing, recessed SMA flanges for direct panel mount compatibility.

The LPD-752-16 is a 16-way, 0-degree power divider with a small footprint of 7.85” by 0.6” for all 16 ports. 

The LPD-752-16-2Q is a dual 16-way, rack mount power divider. This compact design simplifies integration into existing ATE configurations.  

ATE and handover testing experts, particularly those working in MIMO using complex 5G, Wi-Fi and satcom antenna modules will find value in the ease and flexibility of creating test platforms and applications using all of the portable and programmable RF and microwave devices from Vaunix.
