Robust Thin-Film Band Pass Filters for Harsh Environments

Smiths Interconnect, a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave, optical and radio frequency products has announced the launch of its Planar X Series of Thin Film Bandpass Filters designed for applications in harsh environments.

The Planar X Series provides system engineers with a high performance, compact solution for critical RF filtering in X, Ku, and Ka bands.

The new filters leverage thin-film process technology on various substrates which are designed for mission-critical applications. The small footprint, light weight and surface-mountable configuration allow for high-volume pick-and-place applications and are ideal for Radar, SATCOM, and Satellite industries

The Planar X Series complements Smiths Interconnect's extensive portfolio of RF/Microwave components with an off-the-shelf product offering reduced lead times compared to custom-designed filters.

In addition to the standard products, Smiths Interconnect can provide custom Planar X filter designs to meet specific application requirements. Regardless of the application, Smiths Interconnect’s internal processes and procedures enable it provide filters that meet our customers’ specifications.

The Planar X filter family has been qualified for mission critical defense and space applications”, explained Tullio Panarello, VP and General Manager of the Fibre Optics and RF Components Business Unit at Smiths Interconnect. “The qualification plan is based on our legacy space heritage and ensures consistent performance and endurance under harsh environments.”
