Description

Millitech series WBI isolators are the lowest loss, smallest size, wide bandwidth isolators available in the industry, making them ideally suited for applications requiring small size and wide bandwidth. Other inherent attributes are high isolation and flat frequency response.

These isolators are offered in two configurations: E- to H-plane and E- to E-plane. This feature eliminates the need for waveguide twists and is ideal for applications where space is limited. A more detailed description of these configurations can be found on the following pages.

Series WBI isolators feature lower insertion loss and a more compact size than the series FBI fullband isolators and are a wider bandwidth than the JFD junction isolators.

The WBI isolators can be cryogenically cooled to 77K for lower insertion loss performance. An option for testing at LN2 temperature is provided in the “How to Order” section.
