SUNNYVALE, CA. KRYTAR Inc. has announced a new directional coupler operating in the frequency range of 6.0 to 40.0 GHz, offering nominal coupling of 20 dB in a compact package.
KRYTAR’s new directional coupler, Model 106040020, is designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing, or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required. The coupler provides simple solutions for many applications covering microwave frequency bands from L- through K-band, including electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless, SATCOM, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC testing environments. The new directional coupler also lends itself to wireless designs and many test and measurement applications for emerging mmWave and 5G markets.
This new stripline design unit delivers nominal coupling (with respect to output) of 20 dB, ±1.0 dB, and frequency sensitivity of ±0.50 dB. The directional coupler exhibits insertion loss (including coupled power) of less than 1.2 dB, directivity of greater than 12 dB; maximum VSWR (any port) is 1.6. Input power rating is 20 W average and 3 kW peak. Operating temperature is -54°C to +85°C. This new directional coupler is in a compact package measuring just 1.40 in. (L) x 0.45 in. (W) x 0.69 in. (H) and weighs 1.2 oz. The directional coupler includes 2.4-mm female connectors.
