mmW Equalizers Designed and Built for our Customer
One of our customers had a need for a mmW equalizer to help offset a 7 dB negative slope across a 26.0 to 40.0 GHz band. We looked far and wide to see if there were any available components out there in the industry that we could buy as an off-the-shelf part, or have someone develop for us.
We could not find any available parts. So we took on the task ourselves to design a mmW equalizer with a 7 dB positive gain slope. This is just another example of how we can break new ground to come up with designs that are needed by our customers when they are not otherwise available.
The equalizer was installed in the system, and the 7 dB negative slope was flattened out. See before and after pictures below. Another exciting success story!
