TRAK Microwave, a Smiths Interconnect brand, announces the first ferrite-based true surface mount circulator to help lower costs of radar systems. This X-band Surface Mount (SMT) Circulator is compatible with tape and reel (pick-and-place) and standard solder reflow profiles. It is designed to replace “drop-in” and microstrip style circulators. This unit provides a 10% bandwidth at X-Band, a minimum of 20 dB isolation, and 0.45 dB maximum insertion loss. It offers up to 20 W cw of power handling in a 0.25” square by 0.066” high package, and an operating temperature of -40 deg to +85 deg C. These RF/Microwave Circulators offer high performance with minimal impact on real estate. They greatly reduce costs by eliminating custom mounting configurations required with other circulator styles and install onto your CCA/PWB exactly the same as other SMT components. These innovative circulators are optimal for phased array RADAR antennas as well as EW and Communications systems applications. Coming soon is an (X-Band) 30% bandwidth version in a 0.35” square package, and a new S-Band device in a 0.75” square package. Visit www.trak.com to learn more.
