Krytar's hybrid coupler, model 3014320, is designed to split and combine signals in amplifiers, switch circuits, and antenna beam-forming networks in commercial and military applications. Courtesy: KrytarKrytar's 90 degree hybrid coupler delivers 3 dB of coupling over the broadband frequency range of 1.4 GHz to 32.0 GHz. Krytar’s hybrid couplers are designed to perform many functions, including splitting and combining signals in amplifiers, switching circuits, and antenna beam-forming networks used in a wide range of commercial and military applications.

Krytar's hybrid coupler, Model 3014320, ranges from 1.4 to 32.0 GHz with excellent phase and amplitude matching. Typical specifications include Amplitude Imbalance: ±1.55 dB; Phase Imbalance is ±12 degrees; Isolation is >12 dB; Maximum VSWR: 1.90; Insertion Loss is <3.5 dB.

Krytar's hybrid coupler offers the widest frequency coverage in a single package on the market and provides superior low insertion loss, high directivity and tight coupling. This new hybrid coupler lends itself to emerging wireless broadband designs and many test and measurement applications. The new coupler can be also be manufactured to meet military specifications.

The Model 3014320 hybrid coupler handles 20 Watts of average power and 3 kW of peak power. This compact couplers measure only 2.62 in. (L) x 1.00 in. (W) x 0.40 in. (H), and weighs just 2.0 oz. SMA female connectors are standard and N-type female connectors are optional. Operating temperature is -54 C to +85 C.
