Tolerance And Size Analysis For mmWave Filter Manufacturing
By Knowles Precision Devices DLI
A common question regularly asked to Knowles Precision Devices is, “Why not just integrate a filter in the board stack?” In short, there are manufacturing tolerances to consider, and size must also be considered. This white paper examines different 26-GHz filter manufacturing approaches with the specific design goals to better understand the importance of tolerance and size analysis.
