    Addressing Carrier Aggregation Challenges Using Multiplexer Solutions

    How do operators avoid interference between bands while minimizing insertion loss? Multiplexers. They are designed to integrate the required filters for multiple aggregate bands, provide isolation within and between the bands, and allow them to simultaneously connect to the antenna.

  • Micro Harmonics MMW Isolators For Apps Requiring Superior Isolation, Low Insertion Loss

    Micro Harmonics announces the availability of high performance MMW isolator products for applications requiring superior isolation and low insertion loss. The initial standard product offerings from Micro Harmonics are available in WR-12 (60-90 GHz) and WR-10 (75-110 GHz). Both models work well over frequencies outside of the standard waveguide bands. The WR-12 isolators have remarkably low insertion loss (< 1 dB) in the popular WR-12 sub-bands 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz. Power handling exceeds the current state-of-the-art due to the implementation of diamond substrates to channel heat to the waveguide block.
