Any new in-house design comes in a common process and close interaction with our customers, in order to achieve the optimal product with the shortest possible lead time. This essentially includes providing design samples and prototypes in a very narrow time frame.
To characterize customized designs typically following information is required:
Product type (circulator, isolator, etc.)
Operational frequency and bandwidth
Average or continuous wave power handling capability
Peak power handling including pulse length definition
Output reflection conditions
Dimensions and fixing
Connectors respectively waveguide type
If applicable additional information may be required as well:
Normally whether a moderate adaption of a standard type, a derivative of an existing one or finally a completely new design from scratch is preferable, strongly depends on the quantity perspective of the product in question.
