PASSIVE COMPONENTS APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Waveguide Filters, Duplexers, and Multiplexers

Waveguide Filters, Duplexers, and Multiplexers

BoCen Microwave designs and produces a complete line of waveguide filters, duplexers, and multiplexers that cover the 2-50 GHz frequency range. They’re ideal for radio and defense communications applications and are available in W/G flange or connectorized configurations.

Coaxial Ceramic Diplexers

Coaxial Ceramic Diplexers

Coaxial ceramic diplexers are three port devices that are used to combine or split signals that are at different frequencies. A diplexer is designed with two fixed bandpass filters that are connected to a common port. Multiplexers are passive devices used to split or combine signals, usually of different frequencies. Once several frequencies are combined, a single transmission medium is used to send or receive the signals.

3-Way Lumped Element Power Dividers and Combiners: PL3 Series

3-Way Lumped Element Power Dividers and Combiners: PL3 Series

MCLI’s 3-Way Lumped Element Power Dividers and Combiners offer high isolation and reliability, low insertion loss, low VSWR, ultra broadband coverage, and uniform amplitude and phase balance.

2-Way Octave Power Divider: DMS208

2-Way Octave Power Divider: DMS208

TRM Microwave’s DMS208 is a 2-way power divider that covers the 4-8 GHz frequency range. It features high isolation (23 dB min), excellent phase (2 Degrees max) and amplitude (0.2 dB max) balance, 30 Watts (max) input power, and 0.4 dB (max) insertion loss. SMA connectors come standard, though N, BNC, and TNC are optional. For mechanical specifications, download the datasheet.

BoCen’s Filter Family

BoCen’s Filter Family

BoCen Microwave designs and manufactures a full line of high performance Bandpass, Lowpass, Highpass, and band-reject filters and integrated filter assemblies from 1MHz to 40GHz.

2-18 GHz Bandpass Filter Series

2-18 GHz Bandpass Filter Series

DLI’s 2-18 GHz bandpass filters are ideal for use in applications involving the C, X, and Ku bands, satellite communications, satellite TV, weather and radar, and military communications. They feature frequency stability over temperature, full shielding, and a compact sizes across the entire line.

Custom EMI Filters

Custom EMI Filters

EMI Filters are used to prevent electromagnetic interference in avionics and aircraft systems, as well as military shipboard/vehicle electronics, and in military communication systems. Electromagnetic interference can cause a complete loss of data in communications systems, or a simple decline in data quality.

Waveguide Isolators and Circulators

Waveguide Isolators and Circulators

Waveguide isolators and circulators by MCLI feature excellent insertion loss, high isolation and reliability, low VSWR, and a wide dynamic temperature range. They’re ideal for amplifier systems, radar systems, antenna transmitting/receiving, and in anything else that may require the prevention of any signal reflection.
