This paper is an introduction to isolators and circulators used in the transmission and reception of radio signals. It discusses applications for isolators and circulators in various situations and explains how they operate. The need to use isolators and circulators as an RF system component has increased over time as more transmitters using different modulation types appear at infrastructure sites. The most popular use of an isolator is to control interference from intermodulation. The isolator also protects its transmitter’s power amplifier from overheating by keeping reflected power from flowing back toward the transmitter. Read the Whitepaper to learn more.
