Intended for LTE and CDMA applications, the PCD026 offers low-loss combining of adjacent blocks with only 625 KHz spacing. Several models are offered that address specific center frequencies and combining scenarios; from 3 ea. 1.25 MHz CDMA carriers + 15 MHz LTE, up to 11 ea. 1.25 MHz CDMA carriers + 25 MHz LTE channel bandwidths covering multiple frequency blocks.
The PCD026 provides < 0.75 dB typical (1.6 dB max over temperature extremes) insertion loss for both legacy and overlay channels. RX-RX band isolation is specified at 25 dB minimum, while TX-TX and TX-RX isolation are specified at 30 dB minimum.
The PCD026 is specified for RX band IMD at -110 dBm maximum using x2 +43 dBm TX carriers. Passband return loss is specified at 18 dB minimum. RF input power is rated at 120 watts CW/1.0 kW PEP for both CDMA legacy and LTE overlay channels.
The PCD026 provides DC/AISG transparency to antenna ports via unique personality plugs with low-loss and high-signal integrity. The PCD026 is supplied with personality plugs needed to configure both halves of the twin combiner from either legacy or overlay ports to antenna ports for DC/AISG feed through.
Operating temperature range is -30°C to +50°C. The product can be pole or wall mounted, and is IP67 outdoor rated. The twin configuration allows simple single unit sector installation for 2×2 MIMO support. www.filtronic.com
