A line of RF power combiners, suitable for systems using components such as power amplifiers, antenna feeds, attenuators and switches, has been released by Pasternack Enterprises. In an amplifier system, the devices can combine individual power amplifiers together into a large power block.
Offered in 2-way and 4-way configurations, the combiners deliver high power up to 600W and operate across a broad temperature range of -55 to +85°C, making them suitable for military and commercial applications. The RF power combiners, which operate across a frequency range of 20MHz-6GHz, offer a low insertion loss of 0.35-1dB, and a low VSWR of up to 1.30:1.
Designed to be screw-down mounted to a heatsink, the RF power combiners are available now.
