APITech Introduces Printed RF and Microwave Filters from 2 to 40 GHz

APITech, a leading provider of high-performance RF and microwave signal conditioning, and electromagnetic spectrum management solutions, has added printed filters to its filter-based integrated microwave assemblies (IMAs) product line. These printed filters are targeted for radar, communications, surveillance, filter-based IMAs, and electronic warfare applications.

APITech's new printed filters are available in lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and band-reject, and multiplexer designs. These high-reliability, rugged and low-profile filters operate over a frequency range from 2 to 40 GHz. They expand APITech's reach in the growing market of printed electronics, where printed components and circuits promise ease of use, reduction in costs, and greater efficiencies.

"Printed filters are a natural extension of APITech's existing line of high-performance filters and multiplexers," said John Yania, APITech product line manager. "Our new printed filters offer improved SWaP-C for our customers over a frequency range of 2 to 40 GHz, where product package height and unit to unit repeatability are primary concerns."

This new capability also will be leveraged into APITech's filter-based IMAs to achieve reductions in mechanical package volumes, and diversify its portfolio with an additional tool for product optimization. This capability also will be integrated with other APITech low-profile components to achieve improved performance and package densities. The newly printed filters can be sold as a stand-alone component or to support SWaP-C in IMAs.
