TRAK Microwave announces two new Microstrip Isolators covering popular mm-wave frequency bands. Models T001110 (29.6-30.6 GHz) and T001111 (34.5-35.5GHz) integrate ferrite circulator/isolator substrates on to printed circuit board (PCB) material providing for a high performance, yet economical, solution. Typical insertion loss is 0.8dB, return loss 20dB, and isolation of 20dB. These devices handle RF power levels consistent with T/R Module applications in phased array radar or SatCom tracking antenna systems.
TRAK’s advanced in-house modeling and simulation capability was leveraged to improve circuit matching into an integrated termination, and enhance unit-to-unit manufacturing variations. These devices are constructed to accommodate standard layouts, and scalable modeling techniques allow for customized variations to meet exacting customer specifications. Key features include smaller size, variable port locations, and optimized electrical performance.
