The MACPCC0002 is an IC based mono-lithic bi-directional coupler in a low cost 50-8 plastic package. This 17 dB coupler is ideally suited for applications where power monitoring, small size, low insertion loss, superior repeatability, and low cost are required. Typical applications include base station switching networks, power monitoring in hand-helds and other communication applications where size and PCB real estate is a premium. Available in tape and reel. The MACPCC0002 is fabricated using a passive-integrated circuit process. The process features full chip passivation for increased performance and reliability.
