PD2216 is a RoHS compliant, 16 way, wideband, 50 ohm, power divider, power combiner furnished with SMA female coaxial connectors and a type-N female coax common port (input connector). All wireless band applications in the frequency range from 698 to 2700 MHz are covered with optimal performance. Max microwave input power levels up to 40 watts can be handled in both power splitter and power combiner applications. See 16 way power divider input rating tables for more detail.
The heart of the unit is a precision designed and etched Wilkinson type microstrip circuit on a low loss, high frequency, dielectric substrate. The Wilkinson microstrip circuit passes DC current to all ports making it ideal for use in active systems. Power splitter dividers passing DC to select ports and blocking DC to others are also available. See options (right). Electrical performance is highlighted by 1.8 dB max insertion loss (above the 12.04 dB power split), 20 dB min isolation, 1.50:1 max input VSWR and 1.20:1 max output VSWR. Equal power split and balance is displayed by 0.6 dB max amplitude balance and 10 degrees max phase balance. Narrow band RF performance over your frequency range may be even better. See 16 way power divider test sweeps for specific details.
Mechanical features include precision CNC, brass, 50 ohm SMA female coaxial connectors (with N type female coax input connector) with tri alloy plating to insure tarnish resistance and low PIM operation.
Housing dimensions are 15.98" wide by 3.48" deep by 0.88" high (405.9 x 88.4 x 22.2 mm). The SMA female coaxial connectors extens 0.44" (11.1 mm) from the housing. The N-type female connector extends 0.65" (16.5 mm) from the housing. Operating temperature range is from -65°C to +85°C. Weight is 1706 grams. See 16 way power divider outline drawing for more information.
The PD2216 16-way, SMA & N female (jack), power divider (splitter) combiner is ideal for a wide range of wireless radio frequency microwave applications on both transmit and receive sides, ranging from amplifier combining & receiver dividing to antenna splitting, and is deployed world wide in networks encompassing 700 MHz Public Safety Band, 800 MHz cellular, GSM 850, 900, 1800 & 1900, PCS 1900, 1 GHz to 2 GHz L-Band, GPS, W-CDMA-3G, UMTS, TETRA, RFID, IEEE802.11b/g, 2.45 GHz ISM, Wi Fi and 2.3 GHz & 2.5 GHz WiMAX.
