CEX Series Offers Excellent Slope Linearity

Smiths Interconnect’s new CEX series provides optimized solutions for gain variation over frequency.

Smiths Interconnect announced today the release of its new CEX Series of High Frequency Surface Mount Chip Equalizers  optimized to offer precise compensation.

The new CEX Series is designed to offer customers a configurable design approach to get the right solution for specific frequency range and slope, fitting a wide range of requirements up to 40 GHz with a maximum slope of 4 dB.

“The CEX series of chip equalizers complements our existing line of SMT high frequency board level components pushing the boundaries of size, weight and power with each new design and expanding our offering for Space, Defence and Communication systems”, says Paul Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing.

Smiths Interconnect high frequency SMT chip equalizers are a totally passive solution with multiple slope and band options allowing RF designers to reach more precise compensation as the series offers linear gain equalizers with a positive slope.

The CEX Series is suitable for multiple markets and applications and offers :

  • Configurable design approach providing optimized solutions for gain variation over frequency.
  • Multiple slope options (1-4 dB) and excellent slope linearity (±0.25 dB or better).
  • Typical Voltage Standing Wave Ratio at 1.5:1 max and low insertion loss at 1 – 1.25 dB max
  • Frequency offering up to 40 GHz supporting a wide array of markets and applications.
  • Proven thin and thick film process technology providing small size, light weight and level of power in a cost-effective, easy-to-implement surface mount solution
  • Electrical and thermal performances tested through simulation analysis and real-life tests to ensure series qualification
