Anaren Introduces Its Smallest Wilkinson Power Divider Ever

SYRACUSE, N.Y. | Jan. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaren, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANEN) announced it has introduced its smallest ever Wilkinson power divider. Measuring only 0.04 x 0.04 inches (or 1 x 1 millimeter), the 50 Ohm power divider (part number PD2425N5050S2) supports 2.4-2.5GHz applications such as WiMAX (2.3-2.7GHz), ISM, 802.11 b, g & n, Bluetooth®, Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE), and Zigbee® among others. In addition to its tiny, board-space saving footprint, the new component affords design engineers a very low height profile of 0.024 inches (0.62 mm), making it especially well-suited to today's increasingly "thin" handheld consumer electronics.

"Anaren has been a power divider innovator for decades," says Mike Lugert, product line manager for consumer products lines in the company's Wireless Group. "We were there with high-reliability, top-performing connectorized units in the '70s and '80s. We were there to revolutionize the category with the introduction of our Xinger®-brand, surface mount power dividers in the '90s. And we're innovating again with these ultra-miniature power dividers designed for consumer devices."

Among other features, Anaren's new "0404" power divider:

  • Offers an LGA interface ideal for high-level integration in module- level solutions
  • Is RoHS compliant, to address OEMs' environmental requirements
  • Features a non-conductive surface
  • Arrives on tape and reel for use in high-volume pick and place systems
