02.23.21 -- EMI + Ceramic Feedthrough Filters | Optimizing Surface-Mount Filter Performance

Spotlight On Passive Components
An Essential Part Of The Wi-Fi Tri-Band System - 5.2 GHz RF Filters

As engineers, we’re always looking for the simplest solution to complex system design challenges. Look no further for solutions in the 5.2 GHz Wi-Fi realm. This article covers the resolutions to reduce design complexity while meeting those tough final product compliance requirements.

How To Analyze Passive Low Frequency Components With A Rohde & Schwarz Oscilloscope

This white paper presents a technique for easily and quickly analyzing low frequency response on an oscilloscope with the R&S®RTx-K36 frequency response analysis (Bode plot) option, which uses the oscilloscope’s built-in waveform generator to create stimulus signals ranging from 10 Hz to 25 MHz.

Best Practices For Maximizing The Performance Of Our Surface-Mount Filters

The Knowles Precision Devices DLI brand of microstrip bandpass filters offers innovative filter topologies yielding excellent performance in a small footprint when fabricated on high DK temp stable ceramic substrate materials.

Ceramic Feedthrough Filters: Winning The Finite EMI Fight

EMI is a serious concern for devices that are externally powered or require signal wires that extend outside the device. The wires that connect to power sources, or I/O points, can act as antennas that will allow EMI to be received and enter the device, causing it to perform improperly.

The Importance Of Filters In Point-To-Point Microwave Cellular Backhaul Networks

To satisfy backhaul demand and maintain high data rates without holes in coverage, wireless carriers are adding large numbers of micro and pico cells to fill in the gaps in conjunction with traditional macro cells. 

Consistent SATCOM Gain And Flatness Performance With The AR-50

The AR Modular RF Model AR-50 booster amplifier provides superior up and downlink performance for enhancing UHF satellite communications. Properly setting up the receive path will maximize the link quality and reliability.

Using Time To Save Time Tuning Filters

Tighter specs mean tighter dimensional requirements, more precision while tuning, and no room for error. All of these factors drive up cost and time. If we can save time by focusing on our tuning methods, we can lower costs and drive down lead times.
