SMT Qudrature Hybrid Supports High-Volume Manufacturing Methods

Filtronic Sage Labs has introduced the SSH-01 quadra-ture divider/combiner, featuring low loss and high power handling. The device is manufactured using a patent-pending combination of “sus-pended stripline” technology and automated volume manufacturing. The SSH-01 is com-patible with modern pick-and-place equip-ment and reflow solder techniques The units are designed for high-perfor-mance UMTS and 3G wireless equipment, with accurate amplitude and phase perfor-mance, plus low passive IMD.
