Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

What is claimed is:

1. A splitter, comprising:

a housing comprising a body portion and a head portion, the body portion and the head portion non-integrally attached to one another and defining an interior of the housing;

a printed circuit board positioned within the interior of the housing, the printed circuit board configured to split a signal;

an input port integrally attached to the body portion of the housing, the input port configured to mechanically and electrically engage an input cable; and a plurality of output ports integrally attached to the head portion of the housing, each output port of the plurality of output ports configured to mechanically and electrically engage an output cable.

2. The splitter of claim 1, wherein the splitter comprises a hybrid fiber-coaxial splitter.

3. The splitter of claim 1, wherein the splitter comprises a power splitter.

4. The splitter of any one of claims 1 , 2 or 3, wherein the body portion of the housing, the head portion of the housing, the input port, and the plurality of output ports comprise brass.

5. The splitter of claim 4, wherein the body portion of the housing, the head portion of the housing, the input port, and the plurality of output ports have a hardness greater than a 2.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness of metals.

6. The splitter of any one of claims 1 , 2 or 3, wherein the plurality of output ports extends in a first direction, and the input port extends in a second direction opposite the first direction, the input port and the plurality of output ports perpendicular to the printed circuit board.

7. The splitter of any one of claims 1, 2, or 3, wherein the input port is configured to directly mechanically and electrically engage a hardline cable.

8. The splitter of any one of claims 1, 2, or 3, wherein at least one output port of the plurality of output ports comprises an outer portion and an inner portion, the outer portion extending outward from an exterior of the housing, the inner portion extending inward from the interior of the housing proximate a surface of the printed circuit board and surrounding at least a portion of one conductor of a plurality of conductors attached to the printed circuit board.

9. The splitter of any one of claims 1 , 2, or 3, wherein the printed circuit board comprises a first surface, a second surface opposite the first surface, an input conductor attached to the first surface, and a plurality of output conductors attached to the second surface.

10. The splitter of any one of claims 1, 2, or 3, further comprising an input conductor and a plurality of output conductors attached to the printed circuit board, each output conductor of the plurality of output conductors circumferentially positioned around the input conductor.

11. A splitter, comprising:

a housing comprising brass and defining an interior;

a printed circuit board positioned within the interior of the housing, the printed circuit board configured to split a signal;

an input port comprising brass and integrally attached to the housing, the input port configured to mechanically and electrically engage an input cable; and a plurality of output ports comprising brass and integrally attached to the housing, each output port of the plurality of output ports configured to mechanically and electrically engage an output cable.

12. The splitter of claim 11 , wherein the splitter comprises a hybrid fiber-coaxial splitter.

13. The splitter of claim 11 , wherein the splitter comprises a power splitter.

14. The splitter of either claim 11 or 12, wherein the housing, the input port, and the plurality of output ports have a hardness greater than a 2.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness of metals.

15. The splitter of claim 14, wherein the housing comprises a body portion and a head portion, the body portion and the head portion non-integrally attached to one another and defining the interior.

16. The splitter of claim 11, wherein the plurality of output ports extend in a first direction, and the input port extends in a second direction opposite the first direction, the input port and the plurality of output ports perpendicular to the printed circuit board.

17. The splitter of one of claims 11, 12, 13, or 14, wherein the input port is configured to directly mechanically and electrically engage a hardline cable.

18. The splitter of claim 1 1, wherein at least one output port of the plurality of output ports comprises an outer portion and an inner portion, the outer portion extending outward from an exterior of the housing, the inner portion extending inward from the interior of the housing proximate a surface of the printed circuit board and surrounding at least a portion of one conductor of a plurality of conductors.

19. The splitter of claim 11, further comprising an input conductor attached to a first surface of the printed circuit board, and a plurality of output conductors attached to a second surface of the printed circuit board, the first surface opposite the second surface.

20. The splitter of claim 11 , further comprising an input conductor and a plurality of output conductors attached to the printed circuit board, each output conductor of the plurality of output conductors circumferentially positioned around the input conductor.
