EQY series of absorptive Gain Equalizers are fabricated using highly repetitive GaAs IPD* MMIC process
incorporating resistors, capacitors and inductors having negative insertion loss slope. EQYs are available
with nominal attenuation slope of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,8 & 10 dB. They are packaged in tiny 2 x 2 mm 8-Lead
Negative Insertion Loss Slope vs.
Useful for compesating negative gain slope of amplifiers, receivers, transmitters to
achieve flat gain versus frequency.
Wide range of values
0,1,2,3,4,5,6,8 & 10 dB
Enables circuit designer to change nominal insertion loss values without mother-
board redesign making the EQY series ideal for select at test application.
Wideband operation, DC to 6 GHz
Supports a wide array of applications including wireless cellular, microwave communi-
cations, satellite, defense and aerospace, medical broadband and optic applications.
Excellent Power Handling Capability
Enables its use at the output of a variety of amplfiers
Small Size and simple to use
(2 mm x 2 mm)
As a single chip solution, the EQY series occupies less board space than a lumped
element approach, minimizes component count and ensures repeatable perfor-
mance over wide frequency range.
