Broadband Resistive Couplers feature wire-bondable terminals.

Press Release Summary:

Measuring 0.120 x 0.120 in., IMK Series is available in both forward and reverse facing directions. Surface mount, thick-film units provide coupling values from 6-30 dB and are rated at 1 W dissipated power and 5 W through power. Characterized to 20 GHz, devices can exhibit insertion loss of 1 dB or less for nominal values greater than 18 dB.

IMS Expands Line of Low-Loss DC-20GHz Broadband Resistive Couplers Especially Suited for RF Amplifiers

Portsmouth, Rhode Island, USA - International Manufacturing Services, Inc. (IMS), a leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality thick and thin film resistors, terminations, attenuators, planar dividers, planar filters and thermal management devices to the electronics industry, announces the expansion of their line of Low-Loss Broadband Resistive Couplers to include wire bondable terminals and alternate configurations. The IMK Series couplers now come in both forward and reverse facing directions, coupling values from 06dB to 30dB and are rated at 1W dissipated power and 5W through power. The IMK Series resistive couplers are compact (0.120" x 0.120") alternatives to more complex narrow band couplers. They have been characterized to 20GHz and can exhibit insertion loss less than 1dB loss for nominal values greater than 18dB. More information and samples of the IMK Series couplers are available by visiting or contacting the factory.

Since 1974, IMS has been supplying the electronics manufacturing industries with highest quality thick and thin film chip resistors, terminations, attenuators and RF and Microwave components.
