Compact, stripline design microwave directional coupler covers 0.5 GHz to 8.0 GHz frequency
KRYTAR introduced a new directional coupler offering low insertion loss, high directivity and tight coupling. The new directional coupler is suitable for emerging wireless ultra-broadband designs and many test and measurement applications. These couplers can also be manufactured to meet military specifications. Model 158006 covers the frequency range from 0.5 GHz to 8.0 GHz with 6 dB (±1.1 dB) of nominal coupling (with respect to output) and frequency sensitivity of ±0.6 dB. Directivity is >15 dB. The coupler exhibits Insertion Loss of <1.70 dB across the full frequency range including coupled power. Maximum VSWR at any port is 1.70 GHz. The directional coupler is a compact package measuring just 5.25 inches (L) x 0.53 inches (W) x 0.72 inches (H). With the standard SMA female, or optional SMA male, connectors the coupler weighs only 3.8 ounces. With the optional “N” type female connectors the coupler weighs 5.7 ounces.
