The next generation of wireless and wired communications (S data & video) are reaching ever increasing frequencies and require much greater bandwidth than previous radio delivery systems. As the frequency and bandwidth requirements have risen from hundreds of megahertz to multiple gigahertz, the performance of passives also need to step up to these new performance demands. This article describes the challenges of developing higher frequency and bandwidth wire wrapped ferrite RF passives, as well as some of the ways MiniRF is addressing these challenges and manufacturing ferrites for the next generation of communications technology.
The MRFCP0015 coupler is designed for applications that require very small, low cost, and highly reliable surface mount components. Applications may be found in broadband, wireless and other communications systems. These units are built Lead-Free and RoHS compliant and feature welded wire construction for increased reliability.
