Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solution Launches The Ku-Band Iso-Divider Product Line For Space Applications

Crane - Ku-Band_Iso-Divider

Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solution launches its new Ku-Band Iso-Divider product line designed for use in satellite applications. This unit 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.

Future plans are for this product line to offer Iso-Dividers and Iso-Combiners in various configurations (4, 6, 8, etc. ports). These versions will be developed and released as market demand is validated.

“The Iso-Divider product will provide our customers with a new integrated solution allowing better unit performance and smaller physical size and weight. The product brings together the expertise of our West Caldwell operation for passive product structures and the advanced design and manufacturing capability of ferrite devices from our Chandler facility,” said Bob Ferrante, VP Microwave Solution. “Crane Electronics Microwave Solution is rapidly moving from a supplier of high-performance components to a high value partner providing critical multi-function building blocks for advanced system architectures.”
