4456-2 and Model
4326B-2 have a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1, isolation of at least 19 dB, amplitude balance of 0.3 dB or better,
phase balance of 3 deg. to 8 GHz and 6 deg. to 18 GHz, and handle average RF power of up to 30 W. Insertion loss
for the Model 4456-2 is less than 1.2 dB and 0.5 dB for the Model
4326B-2. Both models measure 1 in. wide, 1.75 in. long including connectors, and 0.375 in. thick. The Model
