API Technologies

CUSTOM SWITCHED FILTER BANKS


API Technologies' Switched Filter Bank designs draw from a multi-disciplined staff with many years of experience in both microwave filters and control components. By combining filter and switch design expertise, API can provide integrated switched filter assemblies that not only reduce the overall mechanical footprint, but also offer improved electrical performance. This improved performance is achieved by having the ability to align the filters to the switches, thus removing any of the associated mismatches between the two. The end product is an integrated assembly with:

  • Improved VSWR
  • Less passband variation
  • Lower insertion loss
  • Reduced component count
  • Improved RF Shielding/Isolation
  • Higher reliability
