Crane 4-Way Iso Divider

Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solution launches the new Ku-Band 4-Way Iso-Divider designed for use in satellite applications. This unit represents a further expansion of the products available in this product line. The Iso-Divider combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators to provide a high isolation power divider solution, making the external isolators redundant, for satellite receiver applications, without introducing complex switch-based solutions. Integration of the two functions into a single package provides enhanced product reliability due to fewer external components, interconnects and transitions. Additionally, marrying the power divider and isolators in the same package allows the performance of theintegrated unit to be carefully matched and better overall performance can be obtained. Size and weight of the new product are considerably less than an equivalent discrete assembly.

“The Iso-Divider product line continues to expand, providing our customers with a comprehensive integrated solution offering enhanced performance and smaller physical size and weight. The combined expertise of our West Caldwell and Chandler operations, with experience in complex passive product structures and advanced design and manufacturing capability of ferrite devices, have been brought together to develop and produce this product” said Bob Tavares, Electronics Group President. “Crane Electronics Microwave Solution continues to demonstrate being a high value partner, providing critical multi-function building blocks for advanced system architectures.”
