Smyrna, Ga.Aimed at multi-band mobile phones, Murata Electronics North America introduced what it claims is the smallest isolator on the market.
The CEG23 series measures 2.0mm x 2.0mm x 1.0mm, representing a 56 percent reduction in size from current Murata isolators.
The CEG23 isolator includes LGA terminals, which contribute to the reduction of mounting space and adds freedom in the RF circuit layout. In addition, Murata reduced characteristics such as dispersion, insertion loss and variation within the bandwidth by using a new electrode construction, improving production processes and introducing a new integrated circuit board. This series also inherits the two-port circuit technology from current models to maintain optimum matching with the power amplifier.
Pricing: Sample price is $1.50.
Availability: Lead time is approximately ten weeks.
