Versatile 8-2300MHz Divider For Satcom Applications


A resistive two way coaxial power divider designated specifically for the satellite communications IF and reference bands is new to the offering of passive components from AtlanTecRF.

Model BPR-008-2300-2 has an operating frequency range from 8MHz to 2300MHz thereby suiting the transmission of L-Band signals as well as the popular 10MHz reference frequency.

In announcing the new model, Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF's CEO said, "In this departure from our traditional lumped element and Wilkinson designs, this very affordable resistive splitter delivers very low VSWR for direct integration into satcom systems and equipment."

The standard version operates over a temperature range of -55 to +70C but there is also a choice of a sealed variant for use in high moisture environments.

Standard connectors are SMA female and the size of the lightweight aluminium housed unit is just 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.5 inches (25.4 x 25.4 x 13mm).
