Gain Equalizers offering DC-18 GHz performance with varying slopes in a 0302 case size

Gain Equalizers offering DC-18 GHz performance with varying slopes in a 0302 case size

DLI's (Dielectric Laboratories, Inc.), a brand of Knowles Capacitors, recently released EW series of Gain Equalizers offering DC-18 GHz performance with varying slopes in a 0302 case size. These products will be displayed on the Electronica 2014 in Munich.

DLI's line of Gain Equalizers were designed to compensate for module Gain Slope. Excellent, repeatable microwave performance is achieved by application of precision thin film fabrication and DLI's high permittivity ceramic materials. DLI's unique design solution provides near ideal R-C frequency response, far superior to "stacked R-C chip" Assemblies.

DLI's Gain Equalizers are designed as a small, low cost solution to your gain slope challenges. DLI's EW series is designed to address this issue from DC to 18 GHz in a package smaller than an 0302 capacitor. Components are designed for surface mount pick and place equipment or epoxy mount.

These Thin Film integrated R-C networks compensate for gain roll-off and VSWR mismatch loss and matched to a 50 ohm transmission line for optimal broadband performance. Another most recent addition is a 6-18 GHz Power Divider with excellent phase and amplitude balance, minimum of 20 dB Isolation and low loss. At a size of 4 mm x 4.7 mm this surface mountable component can handle up to 5 watts of input power. These new small sized products are part of a growing range exploiting DLI's vast knowledge in RF/Microwave, high permittivity ceramics and Thin Film processes to ensure excellent repeatability. Products like Gain Equalizers, Power Dividers for RF/Microwave frequencies and Bandpass and Lowpass Filter that offer performances from 2 to 30 GHz with high temperature stability.
