40GHz Directional Couplers With Multi-Octave Bandwidths

40GHz Directional Couplers

Further enhancing its offering of 40GHz passive products, AtlanTecRF has introduced Directional Couplers with frequency capability up to 40GHz in a number of bands including 18-40, 6-40, 2-40 and the ultra-wide band version 1-40GHz.

Each frequency range in the new AKC series is available in a choice of either 10, 20 or 30dB coupling and the lightweight units feature aluminium housings and 2.92mm stainless steel female connectors.

Launching the series, AtlanTecRF's Marketing Co-ordinator, Karen McDermott said, "This new and versatile range of directional couplers will have applications in so many fields that it's difficult to enumerate them but we anticipate a big uptake from microwave engineers across the board."

Coupling accuracy and flatness are +/-1.0dB max across the individual bands, while typical VSWR is 1.5:1 and power handling capability is 30 watts..

The wide operating temperature range of -55 to +85C enables use in difficult environments as does the miniature and rugged construction with 18-40GHz unit sizes down to just 28 x 15 x 11mm.
