The CP0402P Series is an ultra tight tolerance, high directivity coupler and is now available from passives specialist AVX to improve power amplifier (PA) gain control in various wireless systems including cellualar and WIMAX system transmitters.
This new series provides directivity as high as 20-27 dB and a ±0.5 dB coupling factor tolerance in a miniature 0402 case size. This is more than double the directivity and half the coupling factor tolerance of competing devices in the market. This superior level of device performance has been made possible thanks to new patented RFAP technology and design which enables improved design and production accuracy.
The couplers are manufactured with Lang Grid Array terminations which provide low parasitics to improve system design performance and are therefore suitable for power control applications for example transmitters in WIMAX and WiBro systems.About AVX
