MICROLAB's CC-xx series of directional couplers is a tapered stripline design covering from 575 – 2,700 MHz. Units couple off a defined fraction of signal with minimal reflections or loss. Availability in a wide range of coupling values makes this series useful in optimizing the power distribution required in passive in-building DAS. The extremely wide frequency range allows use with multiband antennas, leaky cable systems, and wireless base stations. With minimal solder joints and a low-loss dielectric, the dissipative loss has been minimized and reliability enhanced.
