This Iso-Divider from Crane Aerospace is a 2-Way K band power divider with an integrated isolator that operates from 18.2 to 22.2 GHz. It is a higher isolation power divider which removes the need to additional components and connectors. Removing these components improved the reliability and allows the electrical performance to be enhanced.
The power divider provides an isolation of over 38 dB, insertion loss of up to 2.4 dB, return loss of over 17.7 dB and a phase balance of 5 degrees. The device can handle up to 1 W of power and is available in a module that measures 1.86"×1.81"×0.54" with SMA female connectors.
This product provides the ability for a Satellite receiver or transmitter to share antennas in a redundant configuration. This is a critical function which demands low insertion loss and exceptional performance. Matching the power divider and isolator characteristics allows the best overall unit performance to be achieved.
