PASSIVE COMPONENTS APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Power Handling Considerations for SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors

    Power ratings for Anaren’s SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors are based off of the temperature at the solder interface where the solder is in contact with the SMD components. This application note describes the power rating of high power surface mount resistive products, as well as techniques for maximizing power handling performance of these products.

  • A Novel RF Coupler For SMART Utility Meter Remote Antenna Applications

    In response to climate change nations across the globe have recognized the need for reducing their carbon emissions, and energy consumption. By Norman Smith, Gopinath Gampala & CJ Reddy

  • Recommended Soldering Techniques for SMD, Chip, Flangeless, and Flanged Resistors

    This application note provides recommendations for attached Anaren’s SMD, chip, flangeless, and flanged resistive products. A good solder joint can be critical in achieving a chip’s maximum performance. Mounting considerations for each different type are included with accompanying figures for visual aids. All Anaren resistives have a matte tin outside finish to achieve good solderability and RoHS compliance.

  • Thermal Power Testing Methodology for Chip, Flange, and PCB-Mounted Resistors

    Resistors can be used to dissipate excess power, act as a system’s safety mechanism, provide a matching device, and more. Resistors convert electrical energy into heat energy through the use of a resistive element. They’re usually mounted to a heatsink, a flange, or directly on a PCB.

Wireless Filter Solutions

Wireless Filter Solutions

API Technologies (Utilizing the combined heritage of CMT, Spectrum Microwave, Salisbury Engineering, and FSY Microwave) has developed and produced high quality, High “Q” Filters since 1983, and assisted major wireless carriers and installers with co-location solutions at BTS sites. Key performance features include Low PIM (passive intermodulation), high isolation and low insertion loss.

3dB Hybrid Couplers: TEMline™ Series

3dB Hybrid Couplers: TEMline™ Series

API Technologies’ TEMlineTM series of 3dB hybrid couplers have an average power rating of 1000W and are normalized at 1GHz. They also feature 1 dB maximum unbalance and 90 degree phase differential between outputs. They’ve been designed to meet MIL-E-5400 Class 3 and are screenable to MIL-P-23971, making them an ideal solution for telecommunications and radar applications.

Switched Filter Banks

Switched Filter Banks

API Technologies Switched Filter Bank designs draw from a multi-disciplined staff with many years of experience in both microwave filters and control components. By combining filter and switch design expertise, API can provide integrated switched filter assemblies that not only reduce the overall mechanical footprint, but also offer improved electrical performance. This improved performance is achieved by having the ability to align the filters to the switches, thus removing any of the associated mismatches between the two.
