In the world of wireless communication, the airwaves are continually getting more and more crowded. The need for filtering signals has always existed. The need for more precise and tighter spec’d filters is increasing. More stringent demands often come with a higher price tag due to difficulties in producibility. 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.
