Q-Par Develops Novel High Power, 180 Degree, Power Divider
Press Release - August 2, 2012
Q-PAR DEVELOPS NOVEL HIGH POWER,
180 DEGREE, POWER DIVIDER
Q-par Angus Limited, a microwave antenna and development company based in Leominster, UK is pleased to announce the launch of a high performance 1.2 to 8 GHz, 180 degree power divider. This is intended for use with high power wideband antennas requiring balanced feeds especially where there are very low squint and channel isolation requirements for dual polar antennas.
Dr. Andrew Mackay, Q-par Angus’s Principal Scientist, who has developed this new product comments, “Antenna performance requirements are ever more demanding. This 3 port loss-less device features an all metal construction plus high power 7/16 connectors. It can be used as a high power wideband balun for the design of antennas requiring balanced feeds in order to achieve precision squint-less beam patterns over a wide bandwidth. It may also be used as a component in the output stages of high power wideband amplifiers. To my knowledge this is a novel device.”
The new 180 degree power divider compliments a range of high power microwave components developed and offered by Q-par. For example, Q-par provides S & L band waveguide phase shifters, waveguide directional couplers, quadrature hybrids, waveguide switches, and wideband coaxial to double ridged waveguide transitions from 7.5 to 18 GHz.
Q-par will be presenting its range of antennas and high powered microwave components at the European Microwave Week, 2012, to be held at the RAI, Amsterdam Monday 29th October through to Wednesday 31st October.
