RF Filtration capabilities are now available in printed circuitboard form

APITech is now producing high performance RF printed filters to its filter-based integrated microwave assemblies (IMA) range of products.

The new printed filters are provided in a rugged, low-profile package with a frequency range of 2 to 40 GHz, and in Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, Bandreject and Multiplexer designs. These high-reliability filters expand the company’s presence in the growing market of printed electronics, where printed components and circuits promise ease of use, reduction in costs and greater efficiencies.

According to John Yania of APITech, printed filters are a natural extension of the company’s existing line of high performance filters and multiplexers.

“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,” he says.

This new capability will also be made use of in filter-based IMAs to achieve reductions in mechanical package volumes and diversify the IMA portfolio with an additional tool for product optimisation. This capability will also be integrated with other APITech low-profile components to achieve improved performance and package densities. The new printed filters can be sold as a stand-alone component or to support SWaP-C in IMAs.

These printed filters are targeted for radar, communications, surveillance, filter-based IMAs, and electronic warfare applications.
