Richardson RFPD Introduces Xinger®-III 3 dB Hybrid
and Directional Couplers from Anaren
January 6, 2012 Press Release
- 3rd Generation of Subminiature Components Dramatically Smaller; Offer Same Superior Power Handling,
January 6, 2012 – LaFox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design
support capabilities for the
Xinger®-III line of components
from Anaren. The
Xinger®-III line of 3 dB hybrid
and directional couplers are the latest additions to Anaren's popular Xinger-brand of subminiature components for
wireless infrastructure applications.
When compared to equivalently-sized parts from the previous
generation, the new
Xinger®-III hybrid couplers offer
52-66% lower insertion loss (down to 0.12 dB), 5 times the power handling, 25-28% higher isolation, 63-71% better
amplitude balance, and equal phase balance.
The Xinger-III directional couplers are one-fourth the size of
the Xinger-II line and offer 37-64% lower insertion loss (down to 0.05 dB), 50% higher power handling, and equal
The Xinger-III parts are available as an option to customers who want the smaller footprint
and performance gains to keep pace with next generation base station equipment designs; previous generations of
Xinger models are still in production and available.
components available now include:
The new Xinger-III components feature patent-pending design and materials advances. Their small footprint and
robust power-handling capability make them viable alternatives to ceramic equivalents, thereby avoiding the risk
of cracked solder joints that ceramics can create when their thermal expansion characteristics do not match the
PCB on which they are mounted. The Xinger-III components are softboard, so the co-efficient of thermal expansion
(CTE) disparity is not an issue, liberating designers to specify ordinary PCBs without concern about CTE mismatch.
