KRYTAR, Inc., a leader in the design and production of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment announces a new 180-degree hybrid coupler that delivers 3 dB of coupling over the full frequency range of 10 to 40 GHz in a single, compact package.

Hybrid couplers perform many functions, including splitting and combining signals in amplifiers, switching circuits, and antenna beam-forming networks used in a wide range of commercial and military applications. KRYTAR’s new hybrid coupler, Model 4100400, delivers this versatility from 10 to 40 GHz with excellent phase and amplitude matching. Typical specifications include Amplitude Imbalance: ±1.0 dB; Phase Imbalance is ±12-degrees; Isolation is >12 dB; Maximum VSWR: 1.8; and Insertion Loss of <1.7 dB.

KRYTAR’s new hybrid coupler offers the widest frequency coverage in a single package on the market and provides superior low insertion loss, high directivity and tight coupling. This new hybrid coupler lends itself to emerging wireless broadband designs and many test and measurement applications. This coupler can be also be manufactured to meet military specifications.

The Model 4100400 hybrid coupler handles 20 Watts of average power and 3 kW of peak power. This compact couplers measure only 0.86 inches (L) x 1.10 inches (W) x 0.50 inches (H), and weighs just 1.2 ounces. 2.4 mm female connectors are standard and 2.92 mm K-type female connectors are optional (Model 4100400K). Operating temperature is -54°C to +85°C. This new coupler is available from stock to 30 days, ARO.

KRYTAR also offers complete engineering services for custom designs that meet or exceed critical performance and/or packaging specifications. A data sheet with specifications and package outline drawing is available via KRYTAR’s Web site. For more information, visit
