IMK Series Surface Mount Thick Film Coupler

The IMK Series Resistive Couplers provide the sensing function over a broad range of frequencies in a compact, easy to use component. With alumina construction, insertion loss is comparable to more complicated frequency sensitive couplers.
.
As with IMS attenuators, the IMK Series is engineered to optimize performance in two ways:
.
1) Resistive areas are constant and are specified for the lowest dB value ensuring that all couplers easily handle the incident RF power.
.
2) High inductance lines minimize ground path leakage and maintain low through loss.
.
The above constraints assure repeatability, reliability and optimal performance. The design and construction of these couplers is simplified to minimize cost and maximize efficiency.
