State of the Art (SOTA), Inc. announced its LPF line of thin film low pass filters in a sub-miniature case size. They are available on 99 percent alumina substrate with 50ohm terminations available for either solder or epoxy mounting. These devices are available with passband cutoffs at 5.5 GHz, 7 GHz and 8 GHz. Maximum rejection is >16 dB; VSWR characteristics are <1.4:1; and the insertion loss is <0.5 dB. These filters eliminate the need for use of multiple components where space use is critical. Available in several standard designs and custom cut-off frequencies including high reliability screening, the devices are suitable for applications in telecommunications systems such as satellite receivers, mobile communications, GPS systems, wireless LANs and WiMAX.
