Ultra Compact L/S band Filter Diplexer for UAV Communication

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.

Paul Dechen, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at MtronPTI, notes, “UAVs must operate with a minimum of weight and power yet maintain network-centric communication – command, data and often real-time video – with their ground operators. MtronPTI’s LF9422 delivers 15 dB port-to-port isolation and less than 1.25 dB loss for L and S band secure data links in a 1” square SMD package at under 9 grams – the smallest in the industry. We’re seeing many requests for communications link and radar support with primary frequencies in the L and S bands (1-2 GHz and 2-4 GHz). The LF9422 Filter Diplexer combines L/S band services into one feed with very low loss – increasing communication range, saving radio power and resulting battery or UAV motor weight.”

Nearly fifty years serving high reliability, high performance communication OEMs provides MtronPTI the experience to shrink package size and weight while maintaining exceptional port-to-port isolation and insertion loss. The LF9422 L/S Band Filter Diplexer is the newest example of MtronPTI’s SWaP harsh environment products for defense and public safety applications.
