By Caroline Rees / 26 Mar 2015

PoleZero NANO-ERF FilterPole/Zero, a designer and manufacturer of RF interference mitigation products, has announced the release of its new line of NANO-ERF™ tunable bandpass filters, covering the entire military tactical radio band of 30 to 520 MHz while fitting in a low-profile package measuring 1.1” x 1.1”x 0.216” (28 mm x 28 mm x 5.5 mm).

The NANO-ERF™ combines SMT capability with +6 dBm in-band and +20 dBm out-of-band RF power handling, +16 dBm IIP3, low IL (5 dB typical in a 6% filter), 27 µs typical tune time and remarkable selectivity (20 dBc @ fc ± 15% for 6% BW) for a compact device. NANO-ERF™ filters tune using a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) and are fully pre-aligned by Pole/Zero for labor savings and ease of use.

These low-cost bandpass filters are ideal for applications where small size, low power, and high performance are needed, such as unmanned systems, military handheld radios and communications, and test and measurement systems.
