Part 2: Know Today’s RF Filtering Trends to Better Meet the Needs of Tomorrow’s RF Design Jobs

Posted by Jared Burdick on Feb 3, 2021 9:00:00 AM

In part one of our two-part RF filter trends series, we discussed several emerging trends effecting the “jobs” RF filters need to perform. In this second part, we expand on these trends by digging into more of the technical trends and providing an overview of the filtering solutions that can help RF filter designers stay on top of those trends.

You Need to Reduce SWaP – Our High K Dielectrics Can Get the Job Done

Posted by Jared Burdick on Dec 9, 2020 8:00:00 AM

As an RF engineer, whether you are building a 5G antenna to mount on top of a street light or a satellite that will be launched into space, you are likely being asked to reduce three key factors – size, weight, and power (SWaP). The need to reduce SWaP is becoming increasingly common, but also increasingly tricky, because even though wavelength and the corresponding critical dimensions decrease as frequency goes up, RF circuits generally scale in size and complexity with the wavelengths supported. Thus, it can be really difficult to find companies who are up for the challenge of providing components that are designed to help reduce SWaP
