Murata Electronics North America recently introduced its CEG23 series, reportedly the smallest isolator on the market. The series measures 2.0 x 2.0 x 1.0 mm and represents a 56% reduction in size from current Murata isolators. The compact dimension reportedly makes this high-performance isolator ideal for multi-band mobile phones.
The new isolator includes LGA terminals, which contribute to the reduction of mounting space and add freedom in the RF circuit layout. In addition, Murata reduced characteristics such as dispersion, insertion loss and variation within the bandwidth by using a new electrode construction, improving production processes and introducing a new integrated circuit board. This series also inherits the two-port circuit technology from current models to maintain excellent matching with the power amplifier.
