Ceramic diplexers and multiplexers offer performance benefits that fall between Cavity and Lumped element diplexer capabilities and characteristics. Most often, they’re used because of a system’s size constraints. Ceramic diplexers are offered as non-hermetic surface mount designs or in hermetic housings with connectors.
The MtronPTI LF9422 L/S Band LC Filter Diplexer is custom designed for small form factor UAV-ISR platforms. Unlike open frame designs, the 1” x 1” wash-proof surface mount package is sealed, allowing automated assembly with no drift after board cleaning.
