High frequency chip equalizer

Smiths Interconnect has released a series of high frequency surface mount chip equalisers for controlling gain variation up to 40GHz with a maximum slope of 4dB.

A totally passive solution with multiple slope and band options, the CEX Series allows RF designers to reach more precise compensation as it offers linear gain equalizers with a positive slope.

The product’s customisation capability in terms of both frequency range and slope makes it suitable for multiple markets and applications and offers :

  • Configurable design approach providing optimized solutions for gain variation over frequency.
  • Multiple slope options (1-4 dB) and excellent slope linearity (±0.25 dB or better).
  • Typical Voltage Standing Wave Ratio at 1.5:1 max and low insertion loss at 1 – 1.25 dB max.
  • Frequency offering up to 40 GHz supporting a wide array of markets and applications.
  • Proven thin and thick film process technology providing small size, light-weight and level of power in a cost-effective, easy-to-implement surface mount solution.
  • Electrical and thermal performances tested through simulation analysis and real-life tests to ensure Series qualification.
