Quadrature Couplers and HybridsSource: API Technologies Corp
Wireline® and Wirepac® quadrature couplers and hybrids are ideal for applications involving diplexers, digital broadcast transmitters, power dividers/combiners, IFF, directional couplers, single balance mixers, and 3 dB quadrature hybrid couplers.
These Quadrature Couplers and Hybrids feature a construction that results in the same physical attributes of a semi-rigid coaxial cable, while providing the electrical performance of a precision TEM mode parallel coupled line coupler. This is because the couplers/hybrids consist of a pair of wire center conductors surrounded by a continuous dielectric insulator and are shielded by a drawn or extruded metallic jacket.
