Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, unveils a brand new family of instrumentation grade directional waveguide couplers boasting accurate performance up to 110 GHz. These ultra-high frequency waveguide couplers are commonly used for signal sampling and other general purpose applications in wireless transmit/receive systems, test benches, satellite communications, radar systems, point-to-point backhaul and telecom. In this latest release of waveguide directional couplers from Pasternack are 28 unique models spanning a frequency range of 18 GHz to 110 GHz in seven popular frequency bands including K, Ka, Q, U, V, E and W bands. The couplers are offered in two physical configurations, standard waveguide and split block waveguide and are also available in both E Bend and H Bend designs depending on the user's system requirements. Both the traditional waveguide and split block waveguide versions utilize a multi-hole design which is optimal for power reflection measurements and provides excellent consistency in performance.
