This activity will allow the miniaturisation and better integration of low power up to Ka band isolator used in equipment requiringhigh level of integration like Beam Forming Network. The need to reduce footprint of isolator is a general need and may be achievedfor low power devices by developing SMD type that should take into account the assembly parameter to assure adequate performances.The activity consists of manufacturing prototypes and performing test on assembled devices to assess the physical limits of the isolator and the assembly process performances and reliability.Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-prime contractors(incl. SMEs). For additional information please go to EMITS news “Industrial Policy measures for non-primes, SMEs and RD entitiesin ESA programmes”.
