Pole/Zero has released a new reduced SWaP-C line of MINI-ERF™ (G2) tunable bandpass filters. MN-30-520-(%BW)-S04 covers the entire tactical military tuning range of 30 MHz to 520 MHz and is currently available in either a 4% BW or 7% BW (3dB).
The MINI-ERF™ (G2) filter is a low-cost, miniature, high-performance tunable bandpass filter. The MINI-ERF™ (G2) uses PIN diodes to deliver high dynamic range while fitting in a 1.75” x 2.40”x 0.387” (61 mm x 44.5 mm x 9.8 mm) package.
The MINI–ERF™ (G2) Series combines SMT capability with 1 Watt (input) in band and up to 2 Watts (input) out of band RF power handling, +40 dBm IIP3, low Insertion loss, good selectivity and fast tune time (15 µs typical @ 0 dBm). The digital interface format can be either SPI serial or parallel depending on the state of the SER/PAR pin. All MINI-ERF™ filters are fully pre-aligned by Pole/Zero for labor savings and ease of use. These fast tuning bandpass filters are commonly used in military communication and commercial applications.
