Press release date: May 5, 2014

Currently available in 2100MHz & 2700MHz, PC Series couplers feature a low 1mm profile & exhibit excellent isolation, low parasitics, & exceptional heat dissipation

GREENVILLE, S.C. – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced two new wideband, 3dB, 90° hybrid couplers: a 2100MHz device for 1.5 – 2.1GHz performance and a 2700MHz device for 2.1 – 2.7GHz performance. Based on AVX’s patented MLO™ technology, which enables the integration of high Q passives in low cost, high density interconnect components, the new PC Series power couplers exhibit excellent isolation and high reliability per JEDEC and Mil standards. Expansion matched to PCBs and supplied in surface mountable 2025 size land grid array (LGA) packaging, the multifunctional, low profile PC Series couplers also exhibit low parasitics, exceptional heat dissipation, and excellent solderability. Designed to support a broad range of mobile communications applications, including: cellular phones, pagers, distributed control systems (DCS), global positioning systems (GPS), vehicle location systems, and wireless LANs, PC Series hybrid couplers are ideal for use in attenuators, phase shifters, LNAs, balance amplifiers, and signal distribution equipment. 

“Utilizing proven MLO technology, the new PC Series 3dB, 90° quadrature hybrid couplers are a valuable extension to AVX’s coupler catalogue, which previously consisted exclusively of thin film directional RF couplers,” said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX. “MLO technology is prized for its ability to provide high Q performance in low cost, high density interconnect components, so the new PC Series couplers significantly extend the performance capabilities available to RF design engineers.” 

PC Series 3dB, 90° hybrid couplers are rated for 30W maximum power handling and operating temperatures spanning -55°C to +85°C. The devices measure 6.35mm x 5.08mm x 1.0mm (0.25” x 0.20” x 0.04”) and are available with RoHS compliant NiSn or immersion Au terminations, both of which are compatible with all automatic soldering technologies. Finished parts are 100% tested for electrical parameters and visual characteristics and can be shipped in bulk or on 7” or 13” tape and reel.
