Thu, 05/08/2008 - 11:56am
Narda Microwave-East introduces its high-performance four-way power divider for millimeter-wave applications. It provides a combination of low insertion loss, high isolation, and amplitude and phase stability. The divider is suitable for applications ranging from electronic warfare and electronic countermeasures to radar, communications systems and test equipment. The Model 4318-4 operates over a frequency range of 18 to 40 GHz with insertion loss of 1.7 dB or less, isolation of at least 16 dB, amplitude balance of 1.0 dB or more, phase balance or 10° or more and input/output VSWR of 1.9:1 or less. This model can handle 500 mW average power into a 3:1 VSWR and 3 W into a 1.2:1 VSWR. It weighs 1.4 oz. (40 g), and it has 2.92 mm connectors.
