Waveguide Crossguide Couplers
Waveguide crossguide couplers are offered for power sampling where directivity is a concern. Compared to multi-hole directional couplers, crossguide couplers feature lower insertion loss and a shorter design. These couplers are offered in both waveguide and split block versions. The below standard models cover 18 to 110 GHz, however, additional models can be offered for frequencies up to 170 GHz. While the waveguide version offers a light weight and flange interfaces for a convenient integration from both directions, the block version offers a more compact size. Although both versions can be offered in three and four-port configurations, only four-port configurations are listed below. In addition, full band models and differing coupling levels can be requested.
