MW Waveguide Loads

The breadth of waveguide products includes devices operating from 1.0 to 52.0 GHz and includes isolators and circulators, combiners, transitions and terminations. Each product is designed for specific applications and optimized to handle an appropriate amount of RF power. The highest power devices are based on differential phase shift technology while lower power devices are supplied based on traditional junction technology, Smiths Interconnect offers a broad choice of standard junction and differential 4-port waveguide isolators and circulators.

Features & Benefits

Waveguide to coaxial transitions is an integral capability and we offer a choice of connector type and orientation, pin/socket interfaces to waveguide apertures withf standard or custom flange details. Waveguide iso-adapters span from S to Ka-Band and include coaxial and waveguide isolators with transitions to waveguide and integrated assemblies including filtering and waveguide windows. Waveguide couplers, combiners and splitters are designed to complement our waveguide isolators and terminations.
