DAT-31R5A/31A/15R5A Series Evaluation Boards Operation to VDD=5.2V
Mini-Circuits DAT series of 50Ω digital step attenuators support a wide variety of configurations including attenuation range, step size and operating power supply voltages. Read further for more information.
Band-pass Filters with Linear Phase Response
Filters with linear phase response are desirable, due to their flat group delay, in many applications, for example in image processing and digital data transmission. Such filters maximally preserve the wave shape of the passing signal, since they delay all frequency components of the signal by the same amount.
DIY Low-Cost Power Splitters
There is a continuing demand to reduce the cost and increase the performance and quality at the same time. Mini-Circuits is working to satisfy these goals and has introduced a new splitter series to meet the demands of the market.
Super Wide-band RF Choke
Use of heterojunction bipolar transistor technology has resulted in development of super wide-band monolithic microwave amplifiers such as Mini-Circuits ERA series. These amplifiers cover a bandwidth from DC to 8 GHz.
High Power Limiter Modules
In many applications, front end filtering is used to protect the receiver from unwanted high-power signals, but even with this reinforcement, high-power signals may still be present. A limiter can be used in a broadband device that will not degrade receiver sensitivity.
Performance Change vs. Flexure Using Cable Flexure Test Fixture
Mini-Circuits FLC Series test cables are specifically designed and manufactured for use in stringent test lab environments where cables often undergo bending during normal use. This can result in a change of performance vs. flexure.
Selecting the Right Mixer for Your Application Using YONI -The Advanced Search Engine
Heterodyne architectures are often required to meet stringent spur performance and tight blocking specs, or coverage over broad frequency ranges. All heterodyne systems depend on a frequency mixer to facilitate the frequency conversion and it is this mixer that often defines critical system performance.
Mini-Circuits 2 and 5W Attenuators Display Tight Tolerance in the Broad DC to 18 GHz Band
The need for cost effective, high performance components is greater than ever. Mini-Circuits is meeting that demand with the introduction of three families of low cost precision fixed attenuators.
Frequently Asked Questions About Power Splitters/Combiners

Terms and Definitions: Filters
All the terms you need to know to make informed decisions on the right filter for your application.
Characterizing and Minimizing VCO Phase Noise
The term phase noise is widely used for describing short term random frequency fluctuations of a signal. Frequency stability is a measure of the degree to which an oscillator maintains the same value of frequency over a given time.
Test Report for Mating Cycle Validation of Mini Circuits QBL Series Quick-Lock Test Cables
Mini-Circuits has introduced a quick-connect series of test cables, which is based upon an industry-unique quick lock connector that enables a quick, secure locked connection directly to a standard SMA female jack.
