CTX SMT Series

High frequency surface mount chip terminations

Smiths Interconnect’s new high frequency SMT chip terminations offer a unique combination of high power and high frequency in a small package.

The new CTX SMT Series is designed to offer excellent broadband performance up to 67GHz, providing optimized return loss across the frequency band. 

The patented layout provides substantial power handling in a small lightweight package, up to 1 Watt CW of input power, thanks to the added thermal paths this product provides. 

Several qualification tests have been completed to ensure long term reliability in critical applications, including thermal shock, burn, RF over temperature, low temperature operation, high temperature exposure, peak power, and solder mount integrity. The results have confirmed that CTX SMT design and RF performance are ideal to support RF and microwave applications in Defence, Space, Aerospace and 5G broadband demanding market segments.

By providing a higher level of frequency we assure a unicity of its design and RF performance to support Defence, Space, Aerospace and 5G broadband demanding applications:

  • VSWR performance 1.25:1 Typical (1.50:1 Maximum)
  • Qualification testing per MIL-PRF-55342
  • Power rating up to 1 Watts CW in a small 0603 package
  • Total thin film technology offering tighter mechanical tolerances for better control of the RF performance.
  • Environmentally-friendly materials compliant to RoHS standards
  • High volume production capability supporting customers’ quick ramp up program needs

CTX SMT Series

  • Increased power and frequency rating: power rating capability up to 1 Watts and frequency up to 67 GHz when properly matched in a 50 ohm system
  • Manufactured using total thin film technology and tested per MIL-PRF-55342 to ensure long term Hi-Reliability
