KRYTAR, Inc., a leader in the design and production of ultra broadband microwave components and test equipment announces a new family of compact stripline directional microwave couplers covering the 0.3 GHz to 18 GHz frequency range. The new family includes six models that deliver 10 dB or 30 dB of coupling within three frequency ranges including those of 0.3-8.0 GHz, 0.3-12.4 GHz and 0.3-18.0 GHz.
KRYTAR's new family of directional couplers offer some of lowest frequency couplers with stripline designs on the market. Stripline designs offer superior low insertion loss, high directivity and tight coupling. The new directional coupler family lends itself to emerging wireless broadband designs and many test and measurement applications. These couplers can be manufactured to meet military specifications.
