AVX introduces integrated thin film, high directivity coupler series for WiFi bands

Available in 0302, 0402, & 0603 sizes, the LGA couplers exhibit a rugged construction & excellent high frequency performance across WiFi bands

AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a series of integrated thin film (ITF), high directivity, directional couplers for WiFi bands.  Utilizing Land Grid Array (LGA) packaging technology, the miniature ITF couplers feature a rugged, inherently low profile construction designed for reliable automatic assembly and exhibit excellent high frequency performance across the WiFi frequency spectrum: 2,400-5,950MHz.  Available in 0302, 0402, and 0603 sizes, all of which provide identical electrical performance, the 3W couplers also exhibit high directivity (20dB), low parasitics, excellent solderability, improved heat dissipation, and self-alignment during reflow.

“Featuring miniature case sizes and a rugged construction, our new, integrated thin film, high directivity couplers were specifically designed to provide excellent broadband performance over the WiFi frequency spectrum,” said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX.

AVX’s high directivity couplers for WiFi bands are rated for -40°C to +85°C and feature RoHS-compliant, 100% tin terminations that are compatible with automatic soldering technologies, including: reflow, wave soldering, vapor phase, and manual.  Finished parts are 100% tested for electrical parameters and visual characteristics.
