CASE STUDIES/TECHNICAL INFORMATION
WHITE PAPER: A Guide to Basic Types of Cavity Combiners
In order to understand how cavity combiners operate, it is important to have an approximate idea of how cavities and transmission lines work. This white paper describes different types of cavities and provides a basic summary of how cavity combiners create paths for multiple signals to reach a single antenna with minimum interference between them.

CASE STUDY: Custom Duplexer Designed for Law Enforcement Off Road Vehicle Fleet
Access to reliable communication equipment is essential for law enforcement agencies where a short response time is critical in what could be a life or death scenario. Sinclair Technologies understands that reliability is always a major consideration in the design process for public safety products. A key law enforcement agency presented a requirement for a high-performance, ruggedized duplexer to operate in a challenging on and off road environment, with exceptionally wide temperature swings and very compact space constraints.
