TTE Introduces Bias Tees at Microwave Symposium (IMS2015)

High Frequency, High Current and Standard Designs – to 40 GHz – for Signal Processing Applications

 

TTE will introduce a new line of Bias Tees at IMS2015. The line includes three series:

  • BTHF – high frequency series for 10 MHz to 40 GHz
  • BTHC – high current series for 500 MHz to 4 GHz and current handling to 7 A DC
  • BTS – standard series for 10 MHz to 18 GHz

All three series provide very low insertion loss, minimal return loss, desirable VSWR characteristics and extremely flat gain response over the series-specific frequency ranges. The products are manufactured using high-quality components and processes to deliver superior broadband performance. A summary data table is provided below. RoHS-compliant parts are available upon request.

Please refer to series datasheets for the most up to date information in case any data has changed since the news release issued.

Summary Data Table for TTE Filters Bias Tees:
