Unique Circulator Packaging offers Excellent Coplanarity

RFMW announces design and sales support for a small, surface mount circulator from Skyworks Ireland. The SKYFR-001803 provides 20 dB of isolation from 2496 to 2690 MHz for wireless infrastructure and power amplifier protection. With unique, vertical lead connections to the PCB, the robust-lead design ensures excellent co-planarity for trouble-free SMT assembly. Ideal for 5G massive MIMO and small cell applications the SKYFR-001803 has a maximum average power rating up to 20 W (160 W peak). Maximum insertion loss at room temperature is only 0.25 dB. Circulators play a critical role in infrastructure designs by protecting RF elements from excessive signal reflection, thereby helping eliminate performance risks and safeguarding vital equipment.
