Coaxial power divider covers 8 to 2300 MHz for Satcom applications

July 09, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
A resistive two way coaxial power divider designated specifically for the satellite communications IF and reference bands is the latest passive component from AtlanTecRF.

Model BPR-008-2300-2 has an operating frequency range from 8 MHz to 2300 MHz thereby suiting the transmission of L-Band signals as well as the popular 10 MHz reference frequency.

Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF’s CEO said, “In this departure from our traditional lumped element and Wilkinson designs, this very affordable resistive splitter delivers very low VSWR for direct integration into satcom systems and equipment.”

The standard version operates over a temperature range of -55 to +70°C but there is also a choice of a sealed variant for use in high moisture environments.

Standard connectors are SMA female and the size of the lightweight aluminium housed unit is just 1.0- x 1.0- x 0.5-inches (25.4- x 25.4- x 13-mm).
