Myrtle Beach, S.C. AVX Corp. has developed an integrated thin-film, high directivity coupler that provides a directivity of 20 to 27 dB and an ultra-tight ±0.5 dB coupling factor tolerance. AVX said it's the first company to offer this level of performance for directivity and coupling factor tolerance.
Based on the proprietary RFAP thin-film technology, the CP0402P series improves PA gain control in high-frequency applications such as cellular and WiMax wireless system transmitters. The tight tolerance coupler is offered in a variety of frequency bands and can be used for power control of transmitters in cellular, GPS, and wireless communications, which are key features for designers of W-CDMA, WiMAX, and WiBro systems, said AVX.
The CPO402P series coupler is available in a land grid array (LGA) termination, providing low profile, low parasitics and self-alignment during reflow.
Pricing: Typical pricing for the AVX CP0402P is $0.19.
Availability: 10-week lead time.
