RF Duplexer Market
A duplexer is an electronic device that permits bi-directional communication on a single path. There are various components used in RF circuit of the duplexers such as connectors, capacitors, coupling loops and cable. RF duplexer has a wide range of applications such as portable PCs, set top box, cell phones, and tablets. In radio and radar communications systems, duplexers isolate the receiver from the transmitter while allowing them to share a common antenna. At present, most of the radio repeater systems include a duplexer.
