Through our extensive RF design experience we enable our clients to push the boundaries of radio frequency

RF Design services

Enabling clients to take advantage of our industry-leading engineering knowledge, we offer RF, Microwave and mmWave design of integrated assemblies as a service. Collaborating and solving RF design challenges is what we love to do. We work with long-term partners in aerospace and defence, telecommunications infrastructure and critical communications.  

Our engineering team includes a wide range of specialities including: RF; MMIC design; filter and combiners; electronic & PCB layouts; mechanical design; process engineering and software & firmware experts.

Filtronic operates a full range of CAD packages that includes; Keysight ADS & EMPro; Cadence microwave office inc VSS & Axiem; Dassault CST; Solidworks and Altium designer.

System in package; design, manufacture, and test

We offer a range of SiP design solutions from simple single chip in package to a multi-device multi-substrate technology system that can incorporate mixers, amplifiers, attenuators, filters, couplers/splitters and more in a surface mountable package.  We can deliver cutting edge solutions up to 114GHz.

GaN & GaAs power amplifiers

Filtronic’s designers always select the right technology for the specific application. Our device agnostic approach means that where viable we may select commercially available MMIC, however, our in-house MMIC design capability allows us to design bespoke devices to suit specific needs/applications where performance matters.

High data rate point-to-point transceivers

We design device-agnostic Microwave and mmWave transceivers using both Filtronic designed chipsets as well as commercial off the shelf chip sets. These combine high-performance, with competitive pricing, taking advantage of our expertise to reduce client time to market.

Waveguide filters and diplexers

Our team of highly experienced RF design engineers work with customers to select optimum technologies dependent upon specific filter requirements, e.g. size, response, power handling, insertion loss and rejection.

MMIC design

Our MMIC engineers have designed on a wide range of GaAs & GaN foundries from DC to 114GHz. They are experienced in the use of their design kits and are constantly fine tuning and optimising our model sets, originally derived from standard foundry models.

Millimetre-wave test

Filtronic has an established RF on wafer as well as bespoke module callibration & test facilities. With unrivaled experienced in the measurement, characterisation and reliability analysis of mmWave devices and integrated circuits to 114GHz.
