KRYTAR Announces New Fully-Integrated KAT27 Series End Launch Terminations Operating From DC to 27 GHz

SUNNYVALE, CALIF. – – – KRYTAR, Inc., a leader in the design and production of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment announces the new KAT27 Series End Launch Terminations operating from DC to 27 GHz, featuring a unique, patent-pending, integrated termination eliminating the additional cost and complexity of conventional coaxial connections.

Typical End Launch connectors are mechanical designs where a coaxial connector is used to connect a cable to a printed circuit test board. The connector is mounted at the end or edge of the printed circuit board (PCB). This connector is then used to transition microwave energy through the coaxial cable to a circuit on the PCB. End Launch coaxial connectors are generally frequency limited based on the type of connector used in the design. For many applications, the connectors are terminated by soldering them directly to the PCB. Other termination options include the mating of two coaxial devices to function as a termination.

The new KRYTAR End Launch Terminations have an integrated termination built-in thereby eliminating the additional cost and complexity of typical coaxial terminations. With the termination already integrated, these complete End Launch Termination packages offer a simple solution for reducing the time-consuming task required to install separate coaxial terminations. In addition, the fully-integrated End Launch Termination offers superior electrical performance while avoiding the need to match individual components in the field.

KRYTAR’s KAT27 Series of End Launch Terminations consist of nine (9) models offering superior performance ratings including: Operating Frequency range from DC to 27 GHz; VSWR: 1.2:1, DC-18 GHz and 1.4:1, 18-27 GHz, and Impedance of 50 ±1 Ohm. The models offer Launch Pin Diameters of between 0.005 and 0.01 inches. The terminations are designed to fit Substrate Thickness from 0.005 to 0.1 inches. Additional features include Power Rating of 0.5 Watts and Operating temperature of -64° to 125° C.

KRYTAR also offers complete engineering services for custom designs that meet or exceed critical performance and/or packaging specifications. Data sheets with specifications and package outline drawings are available via KRYTAR’s Web site.
