Electro-Photonics Intros 6-17 GHZ SMT Hybrid Coupler - RF CafeJuly 21, 2019 - Electro-Photonics LLC, a market leader in RF and Microwave components, has released a new high frequency surface mount (SMT) hybrid coupler: Q3HF-16500.

The Q3HF-16500, 90° hybrid coupler operates from 16-17 GHz, dissipates 50 W, and offers excellent coupling flatness and isolation for the most critical applications. This coupler has a very small size of 0.175 x 0.175 inches (4.44 mm x 4.44 mm).

The Q3HF-16500 is a RoHS compliant product.

The couplers have SMT launches that are fully optimized for the recommended board layout.

Our 3 dB 90° hybrid couplers have low insertion loss and high power capability in a small package. These hybrid couplers are suitable for narrow and broadband power amplifier applications.

The couplers are non-magnetic and suitable for use in MRI applications. The Dragon™ couplers are designed and manufactured in the US and are RoHS and REACH compliant.

Standard finish is immersion tin. Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is available upon request.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
