AVX’s New MLO™ RF-DC & RF-RF SMT Crossovers Provide Low Cost, Low Profile PCB Design Solutions

Stocks in this article: AVX

AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced two new series of miniature RF-DC and RF-RF SMT Crossovers capable of supporting frequencies up to 6GHz. Utilizing AVX’s patented MLO™ technology, which matches the CTE of PCB material and provides low loss across a wide RF spectrum, the new X2A Series RF-DC Crossovers and X2B Series RF-RF Crossovers provide low cost and very low profile solutions for applications in which a critical RF circuit trace intersects a DC or an RF circuit. Ideal for base stations, mobile communications, GPS, vehicle location systems, and wireless LANs, the X2A and X2B Series Crossovers provide designers with an alternative to PCB vias and coaxial jumper cables.

“AVX’s new SMT crossovers provide designers with an ideal solution for crossing one DC supply voltage or RF line either over another or over an RF signal line while reducing the need for additional layers in the circuit board,” said Larry Eisenberger, product manager at AVX.

AVX’s X2A Series RF-DC and X2B Series RF-RF Crossovers support frequencies up to 6GHz, are designed for use in temperatures ranging from -55°C to +85°C, and feature low loss, DC/high isolation, and NiSn terminations compatible with automatic soldering technologies. Both series are packaged as 2020 case size Land Grid Arrays, which feature a low profile, improved heat dissipation, excellent solderability, and a CTE that matches most common circuit board materials. Additionally, all X2A and X2B Series Crossovers have been subjected to JEDEC reliability standards and have been 100% tested for electrical parameters and visual characteristics.
