July 11, 2014 - Offering optimized temperature stability, lead-free and RoHS-compliant MABA-0110xx series features 8 SMT baluns, ranging from 5–1,700 MHz, suited for space-constrained CATV and MoCA applications. End-users can design various applications of different frequency ranges using range of impedances. Compatible with 260 °C reflow temperature profile, baluns occupy less than 3.8 x 3.8 mm footprint (typ), and most can be used in either 75 or 50 Ω systems.
