TRAK announces a new high power SMA to WR75 transition designed for space applications. The SMA WR75 transition is designed to handle 26W CW and to operate over both the satellite transmit and receive band from 10.7 to 14.8 GHz.
With a mass of only 40g the device features an an RF sealed connector whose centre contact is shorted to ground to maximise power handling. Flight models are expected to be delivered in the late spring of 2016.
The transition is also available with an SMA (m) or TNC (f) interface.
The plot below illustrates the return loss at +22c. The insertion loss is sub 0.15dB over the 100C operating temperature range.
