23, 2016 - Northampton, MA - Smiths Microwave Subsystems has announced that its brand, Millitech, has
released an ultra-wide bandwidth E-Band Linear-Circular Polarizer boasting a low axial ratio of <
0.6 dB, low insertion loss of < 0.5 dB, and a typical VSWR of 1.25:1 within the high and low unlicensed
communication bands of 71 – 86 GHz. With over two times the bandwidth of similar products and an industry
leading axial ratio performance, this polarizer enables antenna system designers to achieve dual circular-polarized
E-band systems with exceptional cross-pol discrimination. It measures 1-inch in length and can be easily
integrated with the Millitech product line that leverage the 0.125" circular waveguide. These devices
can also be easily customized for other bands from 18 to 110+ GHz. Standard models in other common bands
are on the horizon.
