Low pass ITF SMD filters exhibit sharp attenuation

Manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, AVX Corporation has released a series of 15W high performance, low pass Integrated Thin Film (ITF) SMD filters that exhibit low insertion loss and sharp attenuation in high frequency wireless applications spanning 512MHz to 1,800MHz. 

Featuring a miniature 2816 chip size with a maximum height profile of 1mm, and a rugged construction based on thin film multilayer technology and designed for reliable automatic assembly, the new 15W LP Series filters deliver high frequency performance in applications including: mobile communications systems, satellite TV receivers, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), vehicle location systems, and wireless Large Area Networks (LANs).

“Wireless systems engineers rely on advanced electronic components, like our new 15W LP Series filters, to achieve the smaller, slimmer, and more functional designs that the market demands,” said Larry Eisenberger, Principal Technical Marketing Engineer at AVX. “Our new 15W high performance, low pass ITF filters provide RF design engineers with peak performance and top quality in a miniature 2816 chip size with a super-low, 1mm-or-less height profile especially designed for use on the smaller and more crowded PCBs that enable next-generation wireless electronics.”

Measuring 7mm (±0.3mm) x 4mm (±0.2mm) x a maximum of 1mm (LxWxH), the new low profile, low pass LP Series filters are rated for 15W continuous power, operating and storage temperatures spanning -40 to 85°C, and frequencies spanning 512-1,800MHz; although, frequencies spanning 300-2,000MHz are available upon request. Featuring characteristic impedance of 50Ω and nickel/lead-free-solder (Sn100) coated terminations compatible with automatic soldering technologies (reflow, wave soldering, vapor phase, and manual), the RoHS compliant LP Series filters are 100% tested for electrical parameters and both visual and mechanical characteristics, and are shipped on tape and reel in quantities of 2,000. Lead-time for the series is currently ten weeks.
