MtronPTI Introduces X-Band Cavity Filters for Space Applications
August 14, 2009
Orlando, Florida – August 14, 2009 – MtronPTI introduces the X-Band Cavity Filters for space applications. The new product series, Model UF9138, has been designed, qualified and manufactured specifically for Satellite Data Link applications. It is capable of operating in the range of 7.5 to 9 GHz and can be configured with 5 to 10 pole design topologies, offering a wide range of attenuation performance. MtronPTI’s proprietary temperature compensation technique ensures that this product line delivers less than 1 MHz of drift on an 8 GHz device operating over a temperature range of -35ºC to +85ºC.
The X-Band Cavity Filters are housed in a laser-welded, 2.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 inch package with SMA connectors. They feature a highly symmetrical 3 dB passband of 300 MHz with low ripple and group delay variation.
“The new X-Band Cavity Filters add to MtronPTI’s continually expanding product portfolio, specifically those supplied for space applications,” stated Dick Thompson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MtronPTI. “We have successfully designed and qualified crystal filters, LC filters and precision resonators for space applications, so adding the new cavity filters to the space application lineup was a natural but necessary step to better serve our customers in those markets.”
