The MQS-0518SM is a MMIC 5 GHz – 18 GHz 90° splitter/combiner. Passive GaAs MMIC technology allows production of smaller constructions that replace larger form factor circuit board constructions. Low variation allows for accurate simulations using the provided S4P file taken from measured production units. Tight fabrication tolerances allow for less unit to unit variation than traditional splitter/combiner technologies. The MQS-0518SM is available as 4X4 mm QFN Package. Evaluation boards are also available. Applications include single sideband upconverters, image rejection downconverters, IQ modulators, balanced amplifiers, microwave correlators. The MQS-0518SM is not recommended for applications involving reflected signals.

The electrical specifications apply at TA=+25°C in a 50Ω system.

Min and Max limits are guaranteed at TA=+25°C.
