We provide solutions across a wide range or markets.
Specifically designed for solid state power amplifiers (SSPA) used aboard spacecrafts’ communication, navigation, RadarSats and satellite payloads (GEO/MEO and LEO constellations) these L-Band Isolators and Circulators are space qualified and are multipaction free to 1000 Watts peak at 1.57GHz.
High power devices feature composite adiabatic technology designed for optimum thermal handling without compromising the careful electro/magnetic balance required to achieve leading performance while optimum isolation performance and reverse power handling is achieved by using a suite of high power resistive elements which utilize film technologies. All designs are vented with the position of the vents optimized as a result of careful analysis and design proving tests.
Smiths Interconnect produces a wide variety of loads and terminations ranging from those designed to be integrated into isolators to stand alone components. Loads, terminations and attenuators conjure images of assemblies used in applications with impressive levels of RF power.
Microstrip isolators and circulators are broadband structures that offer low profile wire-bondable interfaces with broad band operation and low mass. Together this makes microstrip devices ideal for use in hybrids for space and terrestrial AESA applications
Smiths Interconnect offers a wide range of transitions and iso-adapters (a transition integrated with either a coaxial or waveguide isolator. Devices are available from S to E-Band and designed specifically for their intended application power handling and operating environment.
Our Low Loss Semi-Rigid products are designed with solid Aluminum outer jackets for the ability to route cables "on-site" while maintaining the abilities to withstand high levels of radiation doses. The dielectric materials in this product are very low loss and phase stable over temperature variations found in many extreme environments.
The SpaceNXT™ Ku-Band High Power family of passive waveguide components are part of Smiths Interconnect’s overarching initiative to create a broad range of readily accessible space qualified waveguide Isolators, Circulators, Terminations, transitions, Hybrids and couplers operating in assigned bands from X to V-Band specifically for space applications.
The range of available designs continues to expand in number with applications for terrestrial and space based products seeing renewed interest. Drop-in idevices are available from a huge number of potential suppliers.
We have taken the standard housing configuration of the P1 & P3 mounting dimensions while incorporating true differential pair contacts within the P1 & P3 dimensional constraints. P1 connector housing contains 21 position true differential pair blind mate contacts allowing board designers to carry high density differential pair signals from the LRU via motherboard to daughter-card plug in modules with a single connector P1 type housing.
Various coupler types (Wilkinson, Directional and Branchline) that provide optimal performance operating in assigned frequencies ranging from UHF to Ku-Band.
Smiths Interconnect is a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave and radio frequency products that connect, protect and control critical applications in the commercial aviation, defense, space, medical, rail, semiconductor test, wireless telecommunications, and industrial markets.
