An RF Hybrid Coupler is a special configuration of a more generalized “RF Directional Coupler.”The hybrid coupler has the characteristic of dividing the input power equally amongst the two output ports (assuming they are terminated properly). RF Hybrid Couplers are used in many circuit and system applications, such as Test & Measurement, RF amplifiers, transmitters and receivers.
Richardson RFPD carries a wide assortment of RF Hybrid Couplers, including surface mount, drop-in, and connectorized units. These products cover frequency ranges from 62.5MHz to 45GHz, including octave and multi-octave ranges in both the 90⁰ and 180⁰ varieties. Performance grades range from low-cost commercial to rugged military.
Specific attributes which are important in selecting the right RF Hybrid Coupler for your application include: Type (Connectorized, Drop-In, or Surface Mount); Power (W) – maximum input level; Frequency Range (GHz) of Operation; Isolation (dB); Insertion Loss (dB); VSWR (max ratio); Phase (⁰) – typically 90⁰ or 180⁰; and Dimensions (either inches or mm).
Richardson RFPD supplies RF Hybrid Couplers from industry-leading manufacturers Anaren, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, TriQuint Semiconductor, Johanson Manufacturing, PCTEL, and Radiall.
The parametric search filter allows the user to quickly find the parts they need by filtering the results in real-time.
Additionally, some attributes allow for the conversion of their base type to different types. For example, the attribute group for minimum frequency is shown in MHz. The values can be converted to be shown in KHz or GHz by selecting the conversion type from the ‘Select Conversion’ drop down list.
Any Attribute that does not interest the user can be hidden by clicking on the ‘X” in the upper-right corner of the attribute. To show any hidden attributes, simply click the ‘Unhide Attributes’ button in the bottom of the parametric search filter.
If you are experiencing performance issues, please use a newer browser such as Chrome or Firefox, or disable the ability of the filter to perform dynamic updates by deselecting the checkbox titled ‘Allow Filters to Dynamically Update Parametric Search Attributes’.
