New ultra-broadband resistors deliver excellent performance in wide range of applications
AVX has released the new UBR Series ultra-broadband resistors. The rugged, ultraminiature, ultra-broadband resistors are made with high-performance TaN materials and employ the company's proprietary, automotive-qualified, glass-sandwich FLEXITERM surface-mount technology, which offers an extra measure of protection against flexure damage during installation, as well as 100% laser trimming, which achieves tight tolerances. The new UBR Series ultra-broadband resistors also offer a 125mW power rating and a wider frequency range than competitors, extending from DC to 20GHz.
Ideal applications for the series spread across the automotive, optoelectronic, broadband, telecom, and satellite communications markets. These include optoelectronic transceiver modules, transmission and receiver optical subassemblies (TOSA and ROSA), wideband test equipment, MMIC amplifiers, low-noise amplifiers, mixers, EW jammers, directional couplers, broadband receivers, and ultra-broadband splitters and combiners.
"Our new UBR Series resistors deliver excellent ultra-broadband performance and tight tolerances over a wide frequency range in ultraminiature case sizes that are ideally suited for use in a wide range of cross-market, small-form-factor electronics," said Larry Eisenberger, principal technical marketing engineer at AVX.
