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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

Directional Couplers: Octave Model NF (C-NF Series)

Directional Couplers: Octave Model NF (C-NF Series)

MCLI’s Octave Model NF (C-NF Series) directional couplers feature low insertion loss, a miniature size, high directivity, high reliability, low VSWR, and more. Various type N male connector configurations are also available. This series covers the 0.225-12.75 GHz range.

High Power Bandpass/LC Filter: JDLLF06U12

High Power Bandpass/LC Filter: JDLLF06U12

This 100W bandpass/LC filter covers the 350-600 MHz frequency range and has a 0.8dB insertion loss (Max). It also has a >50dB@700 MHz-1800 MHz rejection, a -200C to 600C operating temperature range, an N-Female port connector configuration, and 50W impedance. Different dimensions are available, depending on the user’s requirements.

Surface Mount Lowpass Filter Series

Surface Mount Lowpass Filter Series

DLI’s series of surface mount lowpass filters are compact and fully shielded. They feature frequency stability over temperature, excellent repeatability, 50Ω characteristic impedance, and a -55oC to +125oC operating temperature.

Ceramic/LC GPS Filter

Ceramic/LC GPS Filter

The 8LBCRLC-150/1575/20-O is a hybrid ceramic/LC GPS filter with a DC bypass and lightning protection. It has a center frequency of 1575+2 MHz, <1 dB insertion loss, <200 mA current, <4.5 dB insertion loss, <1.5:1 in/out VSWR, 3 dB bandwidth at 25-30 MHz, and more.

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.

Waveguide Filters

Waveguide Filters

API Technologies designs and manufactures waveguide filters to 40 GHz with peak power level handling of up to 50 kW. The inherent high Q of Waveguide allows for the design of filters with the lowest possible loss.

EMI/RFI Filter Sample Kits

EMI/RFI Filter Sample Kits

CTS has recently developed new sample kits of EMI and RFI filters for applications calling for the effective reduction of radio interference in systems where high performance and board space are both critical.
