3 dB Coupler
The new pico line up at Anaren includes wider application flexibility, given new bands. It features very tight amplitude and phase balance, low loss, and temperature stable optimized for LNAs, attenuators, phase shifters, and control circuitry. The couplers measure 0.2× 0.25× 0.05 which is only 1/4 the size of Anaren's original Xinger-brand couplers, without a parallel deterioration in performance. They are surface-mountable tape-and-reel for fast robotic assembly and QC, and the port location minimizes real estate used.
