SpaceNXT™ MWC Series

Ku-Band Multiway Isolated Splitter

The SpaceNXT™ MWC Series is a high reliable 2-way Ku-Band isolated splitter, specifically designed and tested for space applications from MEO/GEO satellites to deep space probes.

Features & Benefits

The SpaceNXT™ MWC Series is a 2-way Ku-Band isolated splitter that operates from 10.7 to 12.8 GHz. The current solution is qualified to operate in Ku-Band frequencies, however the processes and package are suitable from S to K-Band using a suite of existing modular designs. MWC Series is ideally designed to offer the commercial satellite uplink band (downlink also available) with specific attention to achieving phase stable output amplitude characteristics. It is suitable for a variety of space application from MEO/GEO satellites to deep space probes.

The MWC isolated splitter Series offers a compact and low mass structure featuring field replaceable connectors that can be adapted for alternative mechanical or electrical arrangements. It provides an insertion loss under 1.4 dB and ad inter channel isolation of 35dB. The devices are housed in an EMC shielded, RoHS compliant stackable aluminum casing and offer a factory configurable solution to operate as a combiner or a splitter.

Testing is performed in house and in compliance with general space qualification flows, incorporating industry standard environmental requirements or custom screening and qualification flows provided by users as preferred.
