Miniature Surface Mount Isolators
n Designed for Wireless Telecommunication Systems:
GSM1800, PCS1900, UMTS2100 (3G)
n High performance at low cost in a miniaturized package.
n Small size, 0.6” Vs. industry standard of 1”
n Low Mass, less than 9.0 grams vs. industry standard of
greater than 18.0 grams.
n The small size utilizes less real estate on the customer
RF board while providing equal or better RF
performance than the industry 1 inch standard.
n Incorporates a patented Robust Lead approach which
withstands the most severe shipping, handling and
processing procedures without degradation in RF or
n One piece housing and patented robust lead design
guarantees co-planarity between the contacts and the
ground plane of 0.1 mm.
n The small size and low mass make the device suitable
for automatic pick and place systems and for solder
reflow profiles. This hands-free soldering further
lowers the cost of ownership.
n Tape-and-reel packaging being investigated
n Environmentally safe materials used, no lead option
