  • Publication number: 20100127792
    Abstract: A nonreciprocal circuit device (2-port isolator) includes a ferrite-magnet assembly including a ferrite, a first center electrode, and a second center electrode. The ferrite is sandwiched between a pair of permanent magnets and receives a direct-current magnetic field applied thereto. The first and second center electrodes are arranged on the ferrite. The ferrite includes a center layer and an outer layer ensuring an insulation state of the first and second center electrodes. The saturation magnetization of the outer layer is larger than the saturation magnetization of the center layer.

  • Publication number: 20090315656
    Abstract: A ferrite magnet device, a nonreciprocal circuit device, and a composite electronic component are provided. The ferrite magnet device includes a ferrite element having a plurality of central electrodes arranged to intersect one another in an electrically insulated state, and a pair of permanent magnets fixed to both main surfaces of the ferrite element so as to apply a direct current magnetic field to the ferrite element. The central electrodes are made of metal foils provided on both main surfaces of the ferrite element, with adhesive layers therebetween. Electrodes provided on the upper and lower surfaces of the ferrite element are formed by plating in through holes.

  • Patent number: 7605678
    Abstract: A multiple-mode dielectric resonator in which a through hole is formed in a substantially cubic dielectric core so as to pass through opposing surfaces thereof. A conductive support bar is inserted into the through hole. Both ends of the support bar are secured to a cavity, and opposing inside walls defining the cavity are electrically connected to each other (are short-circuited) by the support bar. Therefore, the dielectric core is disposed in the cavity without using a support base, so that the resonance frequencies of TM01 delta modes, which are spurious modes, are considerably separated from frequencies of TE01 delta modes that are used.

One end of the second center electrode is connected to the output port, whereas the other end is connected to a ground port. A matching capacitor and a resistor are connected between the input port and the output port. An inductor and a capacitor constituting an LC resonant circuit are connected in series with the resistor.

  • Patent number: 7439828
    Abstract: Dielectrics fixed on holders respectively provided at semi-coaxial cavity resonator stages are movably inserted through an outer conductor. The holders projecting out of the outer conductor are coupled to a coupling member, and the coupling member is directed to slide or turn, so that distances between the dielectrics and the inner conductors of the resonators are varied, and accordingly frequencies of the resonators are varied at the same time. Accordingly, there is provided a tunable filter that avoids an increase in insertion loss, is high-power resistant, does not cause intermodulation, and allows a center frequency of the filter to be varied steplessly and quickly.

  • Patent number: 7332987
    Abstract: Two TE modes whose electric-field rotating planes have a perpendicular relationship are coupled independently of the coupling between two TM modes whose electric-field directions have the same respective perpendicular relationships. In a multimode dielectric resonator device producing four modes: TM01?_x mode, TM01?_y mode, TE01?_x mode, and TE01?_y mode, protrusions (Pe1), (Pe2) are disposed on an upper-layer (La) and a lower-layer of a dielectric core (1) to cause a difference in effective dielectric constants of individual parts through which even-mode and odd-mode electric flux of the TE coupling modes passes. A protrusion (Pc) is formed on a middle-layer Lb of the dielectric core (1) such that the effective dielectric constants of the parts through which even-mode and odd-mode electric flux of the TM coupling modes pass become substantially equal. Thereby, the TE01?_x mode and TE01?_y mode are coupled while restraining the coupling of the TM01?_x mode and the TM01?_y mode.
