Fort Myers, FL, December 19, 2008 - Crystek Microwave has introduced a new line of frequency multipliers, the Crystek Pocket Passive Doubler (CPPD) series. These CPPD models are designed in a rugged SMA housing for easy in-line assembly and operation in test equipment and general lab use.

The CPPD-0.85-2 will accept an input frequency from 0.85 to 2.0 GHz and multiply by a factor of two to achieve output frequencies from 1.7 to 4.0 GHz. Likewise, the input for the CPPD-2-4 is 2.0 to 4.0 GHz with an output of 4.0 to 8.0 GHz.

The CCPD frequency multipliers feature an input drive level of +10dBm to +20dBm with a typical conversion loss of 15dB for the CPPD-0.85-2.0 and 13dB for the CPPD-2-4. Isolation (Fo, 3Fo, 4Fo) for both is rated at 33dB typical. Maximum output power rating for the CPPD line is +27dBm, with an operating temp. of -40°C to 85°C and a storage temp. of -55°C to 100°C.
