During the first-ever virtual Menlo Micro Switch Summit, Knowles Precision Devices joined John Richardson, founder and president of X-Microwave, and Tom Clickenbeard, applications engineer at Menlo Microsystems, to give a presentation on Prototyping Using X-Microwave’s XM-Blocks with Knowles Precision Devices RF Filters and MEMS Switches.

During the presentation, Richardson first provides an overview of X-Microwave’s modular platform for designing and producing high-performance RF and microwave systems. He also touches on how Knowles Precision Devices’ thin-film RF filters can be used with the X-Microwave platform. Then, Clickenbeard provides a brief demo of the performance obtained using the X-Microwave prototyping station, our bandpass filters, and Menlo Microsystems switches to make a 4-chanel filter bank. Finally, we wrap up the presentation by looking at an application-specific use case for this type of technology by discussing considerations for switch filter banks and the shift to using fully digital beamforming in phased arrays for electronic warfare applications.
