The AEQ05472 from Knowles is a Gain Equalizer that operates from DC to 18 GHz. It has a positive gain slope of 3.5 dB and an insertion loss of less than 0.25 dB. This equalizer design employs a monolithic construction with precision thin-film conductor and resistor films with proprietary high dielectric constant ceramics for superior RF performance and repeatability. DLI’s unique design solution provides a near ideal R-C frequency response.
This RoHS-compliant equalizer is available in a tape and reel package that measures 28 x 16 x 7 mm for high volume applications. It is ideal for broadband microwave modules such as EW, ECM, ECCM. This equalizer can also be utilized as a compensation circuit to correct for a loss slope created by other elements within a circuit such as in amplifier stages.
