HL9402 Broadband Balun (20 GHz)

Effective 10/15/17, bandwidth (-3 dB) is now extended down to 500 kHz.

The HL9402 offers exceptional amplitude and phase match up, 20 GHz bandwidth (-3 dB) and the best price-for-performance in the industry.

This ROHS-compliant product is optimized for use in high-speed analog-to-digital conversion, differential signal generation, harmonic distortion minimization, and pulse inversion. 

For higher performance applications, the HL9407 offers 67 GHz bandwidth, the HL9405 offers 50 GHz bandwidth and the HL9404 offers 40 GHz bandwidth. A 20 GHz PCB-mountable version is available as the HL9403.

Technical Specifications  PDF 

  • Bandwidth (-3 dB): 500 kHz to 20 GHz
  • Amplitude match: ± 0.1 dB, typical
  • Phase Balance: ± 2-3 degrees, typical at 10 GHz
  • Insertion Loss: -6 dB
  • Connectors: 1x SMA jack input, 2x SMA jacks output
  • ROHS compliant, assembled with lead-free solder

NOTE #1: If the DC voltage of the input or output is not zero, DC block capacitors are required. To maintain the full performance of the balun, we recommend a matched pair of HL9430 components from HYPERLABS.

NOTE #2: To achieve maximum amplitude match to 20 GHz, our baluns are designed to require a pair of highly-accurate (<1 %) 50 ohm terminations.

Product Applications

  • Changing single-ended signals to differential in high-speed analog-to-digital converters
  • Generating differential data from single-ended sources
  • Combining differential signals into single-ended while minimizing harmonic distortion
  • Pulse inversion
