HL9407 Broadband Balun (67 GHz)

Effective 02/08/18, bandwidth (-3 dB) is now extended down to 500 kHz.

The HL9407 is the NEW 67 GHz (at -3 dB) broadband balun from HYPERLABS, the leader in amplitude- and phase-matched precision broadband baluns.

With 1.85 mm connectors, this ROHS-compliant balun is ideal for applications such as 40+ Gbps communications systems, modulator drivers, high-speed analog-to-digital converters, and single-ended to differential data conversion. It is bidirectional, so it can also be used as a high-performance signal combiner.

This is a higher-performance version of HYPERLABS' best-selling HL9405 (50 GHz), HL9404 (40 GHz) and HL9402 (20 GHz) baluns, and the PCB-mountable HL9403.

Technical Specifications  PDF 

  • Bandwidth (at -3 dB): 500 kHz to 67 GHz
  • Amplitude match (typical): 
    • ± 0.1 dB to 30 GHz
    • ± 0.25 dB at 30+ GHz
  • Phase match: 
    • ± 4-6 degrees at 20 GHz, typical
    • ± 8-12 degrees at 40 GHz, typical
  • Insertion Loss: -6 dB
  • Connectors: >1.85 mm (V); 1x jack input, 2x jack output
  • RoHS compliant, assembled with lead-free solder

NOTE #1: If the DC voltage of the input or output is not zero, matched DC block capacitors are required.

NOTE #2 : To achieve maximum amplitude match to 50 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
