Hybrid Combiner, Hybrid Matrix

An RF Hybrid Coupler, also known as a hybrid matrix, is a device that mixes signal from multiple input ports across multiple output ports with a specific phase relationship. This device is commonly used in radio frequency (RF) applications, providing a mechanism for splitting power equally between two or more ports. The RF Hybrid Coupler operates on the principle of superposition and power division, allowing the signals to be combined or split with minimal loss. It is designed to be used in a variety of applications including balanced amplification, antenna beam forming, and signal distribution. Hybrids are an essential component within an IBC or DAS communications system as they mix signals from multiple network operators across multiple feeder cables. They are also used in radar systems, satellite communications, and wireless communication systems.
