CXH series products feature Smiths Interconnect’s patented outrigger resistor technology (US 8, 994, 490) to offer substantially improved power handling over conventional resistors without compromising broadband performance.
The CEX series platform is an easy to implement surface mount solution for gain (or attenuation) variation over frequency. Various configuration options including frequency band, slope direction and slope magnitude are available to support various application demands.
Smiths Interconnect Thermopad® products are a totally passive, easy to implement solution for gain compensation designed specifically for demanding high reliability applications.
Smith Interconnect is the world leader in fixed attenuators from DC through Q band. The input power ratings range from 0.1 to 120 watts. The attenuation values range from 0 dB to 20 dB with 30 dB available.
Smiths Interconnect offers the highest power to size ratio resistive products utilizing CVD Diamond, the best thermal conductor available.
Smith Interconnect offers high reliability testing per MIL-PRF-55342 for most standard products designed to ensure long term reliability in demanding applications while simplifying the procurement process with standard test plans.
SpaceNXT™ HC Series offers a selection of high reliability temperature variable attenuators for next generation commercial space applications.
Smiths Interconnect offers low and high power RF resistors and terminations including surface mount chips, tab & cover chips, flange mounted and rod types. These resistors are available with Alumina, ALN, BeO and CVD substrate materials. The new CTX Series of high ferquency wire bondable chip teminations and new CTX SMT Series of high frequency surface mount chip terminations are optimized to combine high frequency and power in a small package.
We are the world leader in fixed attenuators from DC through Q band. Fixed attenuators are available in 0.1 to 400 W versions, covering DC to 50 GHz applications and offered in 0 to 30dB values. Our attenuators are available in several package styles.
Smiths Interconnect offers a wide array of products to support signal distribution applications up to 20 GHz. The HybriX® 3 dB Hybrid Couplers are made for applications which require high isolation and low insertion loss. They are surface mountable and packaged in tape and reels. HybriX® Hybrid Couplers have a small footprint, low profile, and are RoHS compliant.
Planar X Series is part of an overarching initiative by Smiths Interconnect that entails the creation of best-in-class planar RF filter solutions designed and tested to support various applications markets.
Smiths Interconnect filters are available to suit a wide range of applications in the military, commercial and aerospace fields. For more information, please see the notes for each filter topology.
Superior performance is achieved through the use of high "Q" components and computer modeling.
For band-reject filters, please contact the factory.
Cavity filter designs are available in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 40 GHz and with bandwidth options from less than 0.5% to over 66%. Cavity filters offer the user very low insertion loss, steep skirt selectivity, and narrower bandwidths than discrete component filters.
Ceramic Filters are manufactured in two basic styles for both commercial and military applications. The high volume, low cost units in open frame, non-hermetic packages are most often used in commercial applications. The lower volume, custom designed hermetic packages find wide usages in military applications. Both styles are available in various mounting configurations. In both instances the same high “Q” coaxial resonators are used which yield low insertion loss and excellent stability over temperature. A low ripple Chebyshev transfer function is standard with bandpass filters and diplxers available.
Smiths Interconnect is a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave and radio frequency products that connect, protect and control critical applications in the commercial aviation, defense, space, medical, rail, semiconductor test, wireless telecommunications, and industrial markets.
