Smiths Interconnect Surface Mount Chip Equalizers
CEX Series is an easy-to-implement, surface mount platform solution for gain variation over frequency
CEX Series offers a wide array of SMT chip equalizers optimized for gain variation over frequency. Various configuration options including frequency band, slope direction and slope magnitude are available to support multiple markets and applications.
CEX series offers various compensation options from DC-40 GHz with multiple frequency bands and slope characteristics. The chip equalizers are designed for surface mount (SMT) applications and are manufactured using robust thick and thin film process technology. They are also lead free, RoHS compliant and are available in tape and reel packaging for high volume pick and place applications. CEX series includes high frequency chip equalizers that have a slope compensation range at 1-4 db, a slope linearity at ±0.25 dB, a typical Voltage Standing Wave Ratio at 1.5:1 and a low insertion loss at 1 – 1.25 dB Max. Electrical and thermal performance have passed through simulation analysis and real-life tests to ensure the series qualification.
