July 9, 2015
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
Pasternack's new couplers are offered in various waveguide sizes from WR-42 (K band) to WR-10 (W band) and come
in either 10 dB or 20 dB coupling values. These
waveguide couplers boast high directivity of 30 dB typical and insertion loss is as low as 0.6 dB
in some models. This family of waveguide couplers is constructed using high quality brass copper that is gold plated
for added precision and accuracy.
"Pasternack is rapidly expanding its waveguide portfolio to meet the demands of the industry which is moving
towards components at higher and higher frequencies," says Mark Blackwood, Passive Components Product Manager at
Pasternack. "While we continue to expand our entire product portfolio, one of our key strategies is to offer our
customers the most comprehensive selection of in-stock waveguide components in the industry." All of the new waveguide
couplers from Pasternack are in-stock and ready to ship now.
