ABOUT US

KRYTAR, founded by Thomas J. Russell in 1975, is a privately owned California corporation specializing in the manufacture of ultra broadband microwave components and test equipment for both commercial and military applications. The KRYTAR product line includes a power meter, directional couplers, directional detectors, 3 dB hybrids, MLDD power dividers, detectors and terminations covering the DC to 67 GHz frequency range.

The broadband design expertise at KRYTAR has created unique new designs, several of which are patented. KRYTAR has applied these designs to consistently introduce technologically advanced products with superior electrical performance and ruggedness.

Our modern facility houses a completely equipped machine shop, including CNC lathes and mills. The corporation also possesses all the electronic test equipment necessary for testing its products from DC to 67 GHz. Included in the test equipment is a Hewlett Packard 8510B Automatic Network Analyzer with 8515A (45 MHz - 26.5 GHz) and 8517A (45 MHz - 50.0 GHz) S-Parameter Test Sets.

The KRYTAR Quality Assurance Program is in accordance with MIL-I-45208 including a calibration system per MIL-STD-45662. To ensure reliability and performance, the quality assurance system controls all phases of manufacturing: purchasing, machining, processes, assembling, testing and shipping.

KRYTAR has a commitment to technical excellence and customer satisfaction. These principles form the basis for the steady growth that has earned KRYTAR an enviable reputation in the microwave community.

FEATURED ARTICLES

  • Hybrid couplers perform many functions, including splitting and combining signals in amplifiers, switching circuits, and enabling antenna beam-forming networks in applications where power or frequency need to be monitored, leveled, alarmed, and/or controlled.

  • Explore defintions, testing, and typical applications for Krytar's directional couplers. 

  • Krytar’s hybrid couplers perform many functions, including splitting and combining signals in amplifiers, switching circuits, and antenna beam-forming networks used in commercial and military applications where power or frequency needs to be monitored, leveled, alarmed, or controlled. 

  • Directional couplers are passive devices used for sampling incident and reflected microwave power, conveniently and accurately, with minimal disturbance to the transmission line. They are used in many testing applications where power or frequency needs to be monitored, leveled, alarmed, or controlled.

  • Krytar’s product line meets the needs of a diverse, growing customer base and relies on partners who share a commitment to service. This case study discusses Krytar’s partner, Sunstone, and the advantages of working with them to deliver the highest quality customized products.
