BBTLine Intros Surface Mount 8-Way RF Splitter / Combiner - RF Cafe

P/N: BBTLine_8Way_SMT

• BroadBand 0.5 to 7 GHz Operation

• Low Loss (<2.3 dB at 6 GHz)

• Excellent Amplitude/Phase Balance (±0.3 dB, ±5°)

• RoHs Compliant

• High Power (>20 watts as splitter)

Kirkland, Washington - BBTLine has introduced an 8-way, surface mount (SMT), RF Power Combiner / Divider. Shown to the right is a patented (U.S. Patent 9,570,792) broadband 8-way surface mount (SMT) RF Splitter / Combiner. This RF splitter is not a typical Wilkinson-style device, but a design which yields a more compact splitter / combiner with excellent low loss RF characteristics and high power handling capability.
