April 26, 2018 - Mini-Circuits announces the availability of four new devices in its lineup of RF and microwave components. Included are an Ultra-wideband coaxial amplifier with flat gain from 5 to 20 GHz, Flexible test cables with SMA-Male to N-Male connectors for DC to 18 GHz, a Reflectionless highpass filter for 580 to 3000 MHz with high stopband rejection, and a Surface-mount dual-directional coupler with 300 W power handling from 20 to 1000 MHz.

Mini-Circuits' ZX60-24A+ - RF CafeUltra-Wideband Coaxial Amplifier Provides Flat Gain from 5 to 20 GHz

Mini-Circuits' ZX60-24A+ is an ultra-wideband coaxial amplifier supporting a very wide array of applications from 5 to 20 GHz including microwave radio and radar, military communications, countermeasures, SatCom and more. This model provides 24 dB gain with ±2.2 dB flatness across its entire bandwidth, minimizing the need for external equalizer networks. It also offers 67 dB reverse isolation, +18 dBm typical P1dB, and +25 dBm typical OIP3. The amplifier operates on a single +5 V supply and comes housed in a rugged, nickel-plated brass case (0.74 x 0.75 x 0.46") featuring unibody construction and SMA connectors.

Mini-Circuits' FLC-2M-SMNM+ - RF CafeFlexible Test Cables with SMA-Male to N-Male Connectors, DC to 18 GHz

Mini-Circuits' FLC-2M-SMNM+ ultra-flexible test cable is specially designed to minimize performance change versus flexure, giving you reliable results in the most demanding test environments. Featuring stainless steel SMA-male to N-Male connectors and shielded construction with strain relief, the cable is performance qualified to 20,000 flexures. This model is 2M (6.56 ft.) in length and provides low insertion loss (1.43 dB at 6 GHz, 4.25 dB at 18 GHz), 94 W power handling at 18 GHz, and 1.04:1 typical VSWR. The FLC model series features a variety of lengths and connector types to meet your needs.

Mini-Circuits' new XHF-581M+ - RF CafeReflectionless High Pass Filter Passes 580 to 3000 MHz with High Stopband Rejection

Mini-Circuits' new XHF-581M+ reflectionless filter has a passband from 580 to 3000 MHz and stopband from DC to 330 MHz (20 dB rejection or greater). The filter provides 1.2 dB passband insertion loss or better, 1.2:1 passband VSWR, stopband rejection of 35 dB from DC to 280 MHz and 27 dB from 280 to 330 MHz. 1.3:1 typical stopband VSWR results in minimal stopband signal reflections, eliminating spurs and improving system dynamic range. It also provides excellent power handling of up to +32 dBm in the passband and +35 dBm in the stopband. Fabricated using IPD process technology on GaAs, the filter comes housed in a tiny 5x5 mm QFN package. The X-series of reflectionless filters employs a novel filter topology which absorbs and terminates stopband signals internally rather than reflecting them back to the source. This new capability enables unique applications for filter circuits beyond those suited to traditional approaches. Reflectionless filters eliminate stopband signal reflections, allowing them to be paired with sensitive devices such as mixers and multipliers without the need for extra components like attenuators, significantly improving system performance and saving board space.

Mini-Circuits DDCH-50-13+ - RF CafeSurface-Mount Dual-Directional Coupler Provides 300W Power Handling from 20 to 1000 MHz

Mini-Circuits' DDCH-50-13+ is a surface-mount, high-power, dual-directional coupler providing 50 dB coupling on the through path and reflected path with very high power handling up to 300 W for a wide variety of applications from 20 to 1000 MHz. This model provides ±0.15 dB coupling flatness across its entire bandwidth, low insertion loss of 0.15 dB, 30 dB return loss and 24.5 dB directivity. The coupler is designed into an open printed laminate (1.5 x 1.0 x 0.128") with wraparound terminations for good solderability and easy visual inspection.
