hybrid couplersAVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) introduced two new wideband, 3d-B, 90-degree hybrid couplers: a 2100-MHz device for 1.5 GHz to 2.1 GHz performance and a 2700 MHz device for 2.1-GHz to 2.7-GHz performance. Based on the company’s MLO technology, which enables the integration of high Q passives in low cost, high density interconnect components, the new PC Series power couplers exhibit desirable isolation and high reliability per JEDEC and Mil standards. Expansion matched to PCBs and supplied in surface mountable 2025 size land grid array (LGA) packaging, the multifunctional, low profile PC Series couplers also exhibit low parasitics, exceptional heat dissipation, and excellent solderability. The series is designed to support a broad range of mobile communications applications, including:

  • Cellular phones.
  • Pagers.
  • Distributed control panel systems.
  • Global positioning systems.
  • Vehicle location systems.
  • Wireless LANs.
