The new directional coupler also lends itself to wireless designs and many test and measurement applications within K- through Ku-Bands including electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless, 5G communications, Satcom, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC testing environments. The new directional coupler comes with industry-standard 2.4mm SMA Female Connectors. The compact package measures just 1.12 inches (L) x 0.40 inches (W) x 0.62 inches (H), and weighs only 1.0 ounces. Operating temperature is -54° to 85° C. The directional coupler can also be manufactured to meet ridged military specifications. krytar.com
