Multi-layer organic filters achieve high Q elements, says Richardson RFPD
Multi-layer organic filters by Kyocera AVX are now available from Richardson RFPD. The distributor also offers full design support capabilities for the filters.
The Multilayer Organic (MLO) filters are low-profile passive devices with best-in-class performance, says Richardson RFPD; they are based on Kyocera AVX’s patented multi-layer organic high density interconnect technology.
The filters utilise high dielectric constant and low-loss materials to realise high-Q passive printed elements, such as inductors and capacitors, in a multi-layer stack. The filters can support a variety of frequency bands and multiple wireless standards and are less than 1.0mm thick. The filters are expansion-matched to most organic PCB materials, resulting in improved reliability over standard silicon and ceramic devices.
Typical applications include mobile communication, GPS, vehicle location systems, wireless LANs, satellite receivers and instrumentation.
The MLO filters are characterised by a wide frequency range, low loss and 50 Ohm impedance. There is no performance variance with temperature changes, reports Richardson RFPD. They are also surface mountable and have a high part-to-part and lot-to-lot repeatability.
The family of MLO filters includes high-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters.
