Driving the evolution of wireless network access and XHaul applications

Adjacent markets

High frequency, high performance, low latency communications

Filtronic provides customised, high-performance technologies to a range of complimentary, high-frequency adjacent markets. Working with some of the world’s leading technology leaders, Filtronic designs and manufactures a range of solutions from 300MHz to 175GHz into adjacent markets such as trackside to train, high frequency trading, test & measurement and private networks, where our core competencies provide clients with a competitive edge.

Filtronic design and manufacture customised transceiver modules for clients in the financial sector. Our technologies are applied in private low latency microwave networks, helping to slash transaction times and deliver competitive advantage for our customers. Our high-power, low-latency wireless technologies allow our customers to build high-performance networks in the sky.

Recent development in the field of quantum computing have exposed the need for sophisticated levels of RF filtering, and more recently the need for integrated switch filter banks capable of operating at both room temperature and in cryogenic chambers at sustained level of very low temperature. Filtronic works with industry leaders to develop and test new filter technology.

The provision of high-speed, high-capacity, high reliability internet connections on rail journeys has become a strategic objective of both governments and rail operators around the world. However, the provision of such services on high-speed trains presents several interesting technical and commercial challenges. Filtronic has delivered successful trial networks in both Europe and Asia.

Increased usage of components operating at frequencies up to THz creates challenges for test equipment manufacturers and offers an opportunity for Filtronic to design and manufacture mmWave solutions for use in automatic test equipment.
