- RF test labs and application where signal reflection need to be controlled. The isolator’s main characteristic is blocking the signal from the reverse direction.
- Intermodulation measurement setup. In IMD measurements, reflected signals play a big role in system IMD behavior, limiting system capability.
- RF transmitting devices. In transmission systems, reflected signal create problems for RF engineers, and impedance matching become challenging in antenna design.
- To protect test instruments from signal reflection. Isolator helps to protect expensive pieces of equipment from high-power signal reflection, which causes damage to equipment.
