CPD00000M18000A04A is a Resistive power divider with 4 way SMA connectors that operates from DC to 18GHz. Input SMA female and outputs SMA female. Total loss is the 12dB splitting loss plus insertion loss. Resistive power dividers have poor isolation between ports and therefore they are not recommended for combining signals. They offer wideband operation with flat and low loss and excellent amplitude and phase balance to 18GHz . The power splitter has a nominal power handling of 0.5W (CW) and a typical amplitude unbalance of ±0.2dB. The VSWR for all ports is 1.5 typical.
Our power divider can split an input signal into 4 equal and identical signals and allows operation at 0Hz, so they’re ideal for Broadband applications. The downside is there’s no isolation between ports, & resistive dividers are normally low power, in the range of 0.5-1watt. In order to operate at high frequencies the resistor chips are small, so they don’t handle applied voltage well.
