A periodic structure in the form of two coupled magnonic crystals in which the coupling allows effective control of nonlinear effects during propagation of magnetostatic waves is examined. The main specific features of the nonlinear effects are revealed in comparison with the periodic structure in the form of one magnonic crystal. The ability of the nonlinear coupler to suppress high- or lower-power signals for the functional processing of microwave-frequency signals is demonstrated.
