Introducing Delay Lines Week

by Jaymie Murray 9. March 2015 09:36

API’s extensive catalogue of delay lines offer a range of semi-standard and customizable topologies that feature wide bandwidths and low insertion loss. Our BAW (Bulk Acoustic Wave), SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave), Lumped Constant, Steel Dispersive, and Coaxial - High Frequency delay lines are available in a variety of package sizes and interface options, ensuring that our customers will get the best solution for their individual needs. All this week, we will be exploring the many features and applications of our delay lines and what they can offer to customers that require both high performance as well as high reliability. 

Delay Lines API TECHNOLOGIES BAW Topologies SAW Low frequency Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) Delay Lines offer a wide range of semi-standard or custom delay solutions designed to meet unique specifications. Many interface options are offered including SMA (Female and Male), N-Type (Female), TNC (Female), Leaded and SMD. Packaging options include low cost, plastic encapsulated or hermetically welded. BAW delay lines are available in both connectorized or pin and surface mount. Frequency Range: 20MHz - 2000MHz Delay: 0.1µsec – 10µsec InsertionLoss: Starts at 3dB, increase withdelay and bandwidth Frequency Range: 10MHz - 120MHz Delay: 0.15µsec – 3,000µsec InsertionLoss: 6dB – 65dBSteel Dispersive Lumped Constant Coaxial Non-dispersive and dispersive SAW Delay Lines offer semi-standard or custom designs with various delay and bandwidth options. SAW Delay Lines are available in several packaging options such as ceramic leadless chip carriers, which provide small size and weight, and platform packages, which are suited for harsh applications. API Technologies has experience with delay lines on various substrates including quartz, lithium tantalate and lithium niobate. All SAW Delay Lines are hermetically sealed to ensure robust performance. Lumped Constant Delay Lines offer excellent frequency stability in semi-standard or custom designs to meet unique specifications. Active buffered, passive fixed and variable designs are available. Many interface options are offered including DIP, SIP Leaded and SMD. Packaging options include low cost, plastic encapsulated or hermetically welded. Pulse compression Dispersive Steel Delay Lines are offered in semi-standard or custom designs and available in many interface options including SMA (Female and Male), N-Type (Female), TNC (Female), Leaded and SMD. Our dispersive Steel delay lines can be ovenized for high stability center frequencies. Non- or hermetically welded packaging options are available. Frequency Range: DC- 6GHz Delay:1nsec -250nsec InsertionLoss:0.2dB-50dB Frequency Range: 5MHz - 65MHz Delay: 10µsec - 350µsec InsertionLoss: 20-45dB Frequency Range: DC - 150MHz Delay: 10nsec – 5000nsec InsertionLoss: 5% bandwidthHigh frequency Coaxial Delay Lines utilize semi-rigid cable, from small diameters, such as .041” up to diameters of .250”. API’s coaxial delay lines can be easily adjusted by changing the length of the cable and can be heated to improve temperature stability. Many interface options are offered including SMA (Female and Male), N-Type (Female), TNC (Female), Leaded and SMD. API offers a wide range of semi-standard and custom coaxial delay solutions designed to meet customer specifications for a wide range of applications.
