These new couplers increase power capabilities for better performance in an array of amplifier applications including: GSM, CDMA, TDMA, PDC, DCS, WCDMA, UMTS and WLAN. They allow engineers to use smaller surface mount directional style components.
Designed with continuous-edge plating, these couplers have increased connectivity and better ground path. The RF Power 200-watt coupler family is constructed from woven, Teflon-based materials for more stability, insertion loss as low as .10 dB, and low water absorption. All corner connections include a plated-through hole for improved reliability, and internal traces use two-ounce copper for enhanced thermal conductivity.
