These sapphire gigatrimmers have been selected among various types for their outstanding qualities. Our purpose is to suggest 3 types with very good performances better than other gigatrimmers and really top quality for RF and microwave applications.
Sapphire is the best material for: insulation, heat dissipation and Q in microwave performances. It is chemically completely inert with a very low moist absorption value, it is even better than alumina.
Even if is really small it is often used for high power applications.
