Spotlight On Filter Technology
Stuck In the Middle: How To Choose Your Next Band Pass Filter
White Paper | By James Price, Corry Micronics, Inc.

For an RF application, it is important to consider the advantages, disadvantages, and trade-offs of each piece of technology used. This white paper delves into the many considerations for choosing the best band pass filter for your next application and offers guidance for what to look for in each decision.

The Importance Of Filters In Point-To-Point Microwave Cellular Backhaul Networks
Application Note | Anatech Electronics Inc.

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. 

Tolerance And Size Analysis For Millimeter-Wave Filter Manufacturing
White Paper | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

“Why not just integrate a filter in the board stack?” Manufacturing tolerances and size must 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.

High-Power Switched Filter Bank Options For RF Communications And Electronic Warfare (EW) Applications
Article | By Justin Wells, NuWaves Engineering

Switched filter banks are beneficial to radio frequency (RF) communication systems and are utilized in both receivers and transmitters to reduce signal interference from harmonics, spurious emissions, strong signal interferers, and to limit noise power for optimized system performance.

A Different Approach: Designing With Modular Filters
Article | X-Microwave, LLC

Managing filter selection is not without its risks. Over-specifying, under-specifying, late system changes, long lead times, and unintended consequences of filter technology choices can be incurred at the worst possible times.
