K & L Microwave Inc. has introduced a ceramic based GPS diplexer. The diplexer, with channels centered at 1227 and 1575 MHz is suitable for both manual and automated installation while enduring temperatures up to 205°C during the reflow solder operation. Its small size and light weight make the unit an excellent choice for pick and place manufacturing techniques without introducing orientation issues due to its surface mount printed circuit board design. The nominal bandwidths of each channel are 60 Megahertz with insertion loss of 1.0 dB at center frequency, while achieving VSWR of 1.8:1.
