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.

Lumped Element Directional Couplers: CL Series

Lumped Element Directional Couplers: CL Series

MCLI’s CL Series of lumped element directional couplers covers the 0.1-1300 MHz (SMA) and 0.1-850 MHz (NF) frequency ranges and features high directivity, high quality, and low VSWR. This series has an operating temperature range of -55oC to + 85oC.

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.

4-Way Microstrip High Power Dividers and Combiners (PM4 Series)

4-Way Microstrip High Power Dividers and Combiners (PM4 Series)

MCLI’s PM4 Series of 4-Way Microstrip Power Dividers and Combiners are available with standard and high power outputs (up to 500 Watts CW). The series collectively covers the 50 to 2500 MHz frequency range and features high isolation, low insertion loss, and low VSWR.

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.
