Designed specifically for satellite communications IF and reference bands, the BPR-008-2300-2 power divider has been introduced by AtlanTecRF. The resistive two way coaxial power divider has an operating frequency range from 8MHz to 2300MHz, which makes the device suitable for the transmission of L-Band signals as well as the popular 10MHz reference frequency.
The standard version operates over a temperature range of -55 to +70C but there is also a choice of a sealed variant for use in high moisture environments. Standard connectors are SMA female and the size of the lightweight aluminium housed unit is just 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.5" (25.4 x 25.4 x 13mm).
In announcing the new model, Geoff Burling, AtlanTecRF’s CEO said, “In this departure from our traditional lumped element and Wilkinson designs, this very affordable resistive splitter delivers very low VSWR for direct integration into satcom systems and equipment.”
