Directional couplers reduce costs without compromising performance
Link Microtek, the specialist supplier of RF and microwave components, has expanded its range of Tiger Microwave products with the addition of the TGD-A1 series of directional couplers.
These competitively priced devices are manufactured to exceptionally high quality standards and provide excellent performance for a wide variety of military and commercial applications over the frequency range 500MHz to 18GHz.
Equipped with SMA-type female connectors as standard, the directional couplers feature insertion losses as low as 0.4dB and VSWR values ranging from 1.2:1 to 1.6:1, while operating temperature range is specified as -55 to 85degC. They have a directivity of 10dB, 12dB or 20dB and a frequency sensitivity of +/-0.7dB or +/-1.0dB.
Available with coupling values of 6, 10, 20 or 30dB, the TGD-A1 series couplers are particularly suitable for use in microwave test systems and for integration into mobile-phone infrastructure or satellite communications equipment.
