High-performance, low-pass integrated thin film filters ideally suited for wireless applications
Subs & Systems
AVX Corporation has added 11 new frequencies to its 0805 high-performance, low-pass LP Series integrated thin film (ITF) SMD filters. They are available in 700, 750, 780, 942, 1000, 1250, 1800, 1900, 2400, 2900, 3500, and 4000MHz variants, the 0805 filters are compact and low-profile - measuring just 2.03mm x 1.55mm x 0.8mm ±0.1mm (l x w x h). The devices display low insertion loss and remarkably sharp roll-off ideal for a wide range of high-frequency wireless applications including microcell and picocell base stations, global positioning and vehicle location systems, mobile communications systems, satellite TV receivers, and wireless LANs.
"This vast expansion to our 0805 LP Series high-performance, low-pass filters, which are especially designed for the smaller and more crowded PCBs that next-generation wireless electronics depend on, will help wireless systems engineers achieve the smaller, slimmer, and more functional product designs that the market demands," said Larry Eisenberger, principal technical marketing engineer at AVX.
The filters are based on proven thin film multilayer technology, are ruggedly constructed for reliable automatic assembly, and are rated for 8W continuous power and operating and storage temperatures spanning -40C to +85C. Featuring characteristic impedance of 50Ohm and nickel/lead-free-solder (Sn100) coated terminations compatible with automatic reflow, wave, vapour phase, and manual soldering technologies, the RoHS-compliant filters are 100% tested for electrical parameters and both visual and mechanical characteristics and are shipped on tape and reel.
