Couplers exhibit excellent high-frequency performance across WiFi bands
AVX Corporation has introduced a series of integrated thin film (ITF), high directivity, directional couplers for WiFi bands. Utilizing Land Grid Array (LGA) packaging technology, the miniature ITF couplers feature a rugged, inherently low profile construction designed for reliable automatic assembly and exhibit excellent high frequency performance across the WiFi frequency spectrum: 2,400-5,950MHz. Available in 0302, 0402, and 0603 sizes, all of which provide identical electrical performance, the 3W couplers also exhibit high directivity (20dB), low parasitics, excellent solderability, improved heat dissipation, and self-alignment during reflow.
AVX’s high directivity couplers for WiFi bands are rated for -40°C to +85°C and feature RoHS-compliant, 100% tin terminations that are compatible with automatic soldering technologies, including: reflow, wave soldering, vapor phase, and manual. Finished parts are 100% tested for electrical parameters and visual characteristics.
