Cavity filter design are available in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 40 GHz and with bandwidths options from less than 0.5% to over 66 %. Cavity filters offer the user very low insertion loss, steep skirt selectivity, and narrower bandwidths than discrete components filters.
Lumped elements filters are designed to give optimal performance where small size is critical. Electrical and mechanical requirement for each design are computer-generated, taking into consideration realizable «» and environmental conditions, then analysed using our unique software, thereby reducing the amount of trial and error alignment.
Printed filters are designed for use in applications where size and weight requirements are paramount. The original opportunity was manned military aircraft, so the most stringent environmental concerns of MIL-ST810 and MIL-STD202 also had to be satisfied.
