Negative-Slope Equalizers

March 16, 2023

Fairview Microwave, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave and mmWave components, has just introduced an innovative series of in-stock, negative-slope equalizers. They were designed for broadband applications including electronic countermeasures, electronic warfare, microwave radio and more.

Fairview’s new negative-slope equalizers feature superior performance with excellent linearity, high reliability and low VSWR. They offer reliability in hazardous conditions with military-grade, compact, coaxial package designs and boast operating temperatures ranging from 0°C (32°F) to +90°C (194°F).

They provide wide coverage over octave bandwidths ranging from 1 to 26.5 GHz and low insertion loss from 0.5 to 1.2 dB.  

With a maximum input power handling of 150 mW, users can securely transmit greater amounts of power without worrying about damaging antenna ports from overloading.

“Our new negative-slope equalizers relieve performance issues in our customers’ signal processing channels. The devices are ideal when compensating for an amplifier’s broadband gain response that characteristically rolls off at the upper end of the frequency band,” said Tim Galla, product line manager.
