White Paper: A Guide to Basic Types of Cavity Combiners

Written by Michael Macki, Product Design Engineer, Sinclair Technologies
The cavity combiner is an important tool for joining multiple signals onto a single path or for separating these signals onto individual paths. This paper will describe how resonant cavities are used to accomplish this. First, in order to understand how these combiners operate, it is important to have an approximate idea of how cavities and transmission lines work.
