MACOM Announces New 2-Way 90 Degree Power Splitter

Press release date: July 8, 2014

Power Splitter boasts world class power distribution and surface mountable technology

Lowell, Mass.–M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced a new 2-way 90 degree Power Splitter ideally suited for CATV, Broadband and FTTx applications.

The MAPD-011018 is for customers who need a stable and durable power splitter for CATV, Broadband and FTTx applications. The device is both 260ºC reflow compatible and surface mountable making it simple and easy to use.  Though this power splitter operates from 5-250 MHz, its best performance is between 5-85 MHz with a phase balance of 90 degrees +/- three degrees. The MAPD-011018 has an insertion loss of 1.2 dB and 1.5 dB and an isolation of 19.4 dB and 17.9 dB to provide low power loss and high signal separation. Furthermore, this device distributes power through both ports very evenly, due to an amplitude balance of 0.4 dB and 0.2 dB. This power splitter has excellent temperature stability and a maximum power input of 24dB – altogether providing a power splitter solution optimized for demanding conditions and applications.

“The MAPD-011018 is an excellent choice for designers requiring a tightly balanced 2 way 90 degree Power Splitter,” said Alan Miller, Product Manager. “The MAPD-011018 has been specifically designed in 75Ω impedance to address CATV low distortion upstream applications from 5 to 250 MHz.”

The table below outlines typical performance:

Parameter Units MAPD-011018
Frequency Range MHz 5-85 and 85-250
Isolation dB 19.4 and 17.9
Insertion Loss dB 1.5 and 1.2
Amplitude Balance dB .4 and .2
Phase Balance Degrees 90 +/- 3  at 5-85 MHz
Impedance Ω 75
Maximum Input Power dBm 24

Production quantities and samples of MAPD-011018 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website at: www.macom.com .
