The 8 Way Ku Band Isolator-Divider for Space Applications operates from 10.7 to 14.8 GHz with a low insertion loss of 2.2 dB, isolation over 38 dB and can handle up to 2 watts of power. The Isolator-Divider combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators to provide a high isolation power divider solution, making the external isolators redundant, for satellite receiver applications, without introducing complex switch-based solutions. Integration of the two functions into a single package provides enhanced product reliability due to fewer external components, interconnects and transitions.
Merging the power divider and isolators in the same package allows the performance of the integrated unit to be carefully matched and better overall performance can be obtained. Size and weight of the product is considerably lower than an equivalent discrete assembly.
