Lumped element filters


1MHz-20GHz
Lumped element technology is commonly used in applications where small size is required, especially at lower frequencies where transmission line devices might be excessively large. Both narrowband and broadband designs are available in high pass, low pass, band pass, band stop and multiplexer form.
  • Ideal for moderate to very wide bandwidths
  • Versatile topologies and multiple frequency bands
  • Perfect for applications where size and weight is important.
  • Can be designed for challenging environmental conditions such as high shock and vibration.

Small cell filters


<6GHz
With the lower power of small cell products, the main drivers to a successful product are compact size, low weight and both high performance and efficiency. The filter has a significant impact on all of these drivers, so it is important to consider these in the technology and design approach of the filters. ‍
  • Miniature high performance filters for 5G
  • Designed to extend the capacity, speed and efficiency of a radio network
