TRAK Microwave, a Smiths Interconnect brand, announces a new Ka-Band Dual-Junction Latching Circulator-Isolator for high performance satellite communications links, commercial aviation systems, missile systems, and other high-rel aerospace applications. The unit can be designed to cover a variety of bandwidths across the 16-35 GHz range and offers 1μs switching speed and a very low insertion loss of 0.2dB in transmit mode and 0.4 dB in receive mode. The device will handle +39 dBm transmit power with 25 dB isolation to protect the receiver while transmitting, and is well matched with 25 dB return loss and better than -60 dBc RF leakage.
The suspended circulator-isolator ferrite element is supported with a temperature-stable dielectric material, avoiding the thermal variations of commonly-used PTFE, and employs an innovative field-cancelling technique minimizing external magnetic interference. The device is space-qualified, and TRAK can integrate the latching junction design into complex multi-function assemblies suitable to the customer’s specifications.
