Design and sales support is now available for Smiths Interconnect’s CTX series high frequency chip terminations. The CTX series have been requalified to higher power levels and higher frequencies, offering a unique combination in a 0.040 x 0.040” package. With space and defense communication systems needing higher frequency chip termination products, these devices reduce cost of ownership by supporting L- through V-band frequencies in a single chip. For example, the CT0404ALN2WB1 is a 1W termination operating to 64 GHz and capable of peak power handling 10X the CW rating. Made of aluminum nitride (AlN), the unit is wire bondable for applications such as isolators, T/R modules, up/down converters, instrumentation, satellite communications, radar, and broadcast.
