A miniature, surface-mount diplexer filter is designed for CATV applications through 1 GHz.
Model MAFL-011013 is a 75-Ω broadband diplexer filter for cable-television (CATV) applications, direct-broadcast-satellite (DBS), and cable-modem applications. It is usable over the frequency bands of 5 to 42 MHz and 54 to 1000 MHz, with typical insertion loss of only 0.5 dB in either frequency band. Signal isolation is typically 55 dB from 5 to 37 MHz; 50 dB from 54 to 100 MHz; 55 dB from 100 to 600 MHz; and 50 dB from 600 to 1000 MHz. Return loss is typically 16 dB across its full frequency range of operation. The diplexer, which is rated for maximum RF power of 250 mW and DC current of 30 mA, has an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. The RoHS-compliant component, which is supplied in an 11-pin surface-mount package, is available in tape-and-reel format for high-volume-production applications.
