AVX INTRODUCES THE SMALLEST THIN-FILM 10W 3dB DIRECTIONAL COUPLERS FOR WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS

GREENVILLE, S.C., June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced the smallest thin-film 10W 3dB directional couplers available in today's market. Based on AVX's proven thin-film technology, the new 0603 3dB 90° couplers exhibit excellent high-frequency performance in ranges spanning 800-6,000MHz and are currently unique in their ability to provide 10W continuous power handling.   "Although designed for use in a wide variety of wireless communications applications, the power handling capabilities, expansive frequency range, and miniature size of our new thin-film 10W 3dB couplers makes them especially attractive for portable communications devices, as this particular market segment continues to demand smaller and smaller components in order to keep pace with consumers' demands for the smallest and sleekest portable technology available," said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX. Utilizing Land Grid Array (LGA) packaging technology, AVX's new 10W 3dB directional couplers feature an inherently low profile, low parasitics, excellent solderability, and improved heat dissipation in addition to self-alignment during reflow.  Surface mountable and RoHS compliant, the DB0603N couplers also feature low loss, high isolation, and rugged construction for reliable automatic assembly. Supplied on tape and reel, AVX's 10W 3dB directional couplers are ideal for a broad range of wireless communications applications, including: mobile communications, satellite TV, GPS devices, vehicle location systems, and wireless LANs, among others.   For more information about AVX, please visit www.avx.com, call 864-967-2150, or write to One AVX Boulevard, Fountain Inn, S.C. 29644.
