Krytar, Inc., a specialist in the design and production of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment, has announced the continued expansion of its line of ultra-broadband directional couplers with the addition of a new model offering 16 dB of nominal coupling over the frequency range of 1.0 to 65.0 GHz (S- through V-Bands), in a compact and lightweight package.

Krytar’s latest product line addition, the Model 101065016 coupler, enhances the selection of multi-purpose, stripline designs that exhibit excellent coupling over a ultra-broadband frequency range of 1.0 to 65 GHz in a single, compact and lightweight package.

This coupler offers the ultimate solution for emerging designs and test and measurement applications including mmWave and 5G.

In addition, the Model 101065016 offers superior performance ratings including nominal coupling (with respect to output) of 16 dB, ±2.0 dB. Frequency sensitivity is ±1.2 dB (1 to 32 GHz) and ±1.5 dB (32 to 65 GHz).

According to the manufacturer, the directional coupler exhibits insertion loss (including coupled power) of less than 2.8 dB, directivity of >10 dB, and maximum VSWR is 1.6 at any port. Input power rating is 20 W average and 3 kW peak.

The directional coupler comes with industry-standard 1.85-mm female connectors. The compact package measures just 2.50 inches (L) x 0.50 inches (W) x 0.65 inches (H), and weighs only 1.9 ounces. Operating temperature is -54° to 85° C.

Krytar says its couplers are uniquely designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required.

Krytar couplers offer solutions for many ultra-broadband applications including electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless including mmWave, 5G, 5G NR (New Radio), Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, mmWave, SATCOM, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) testing environments.
