Smiths Interconnect is committed to providing technically advanced, high quality “state-of-the art” RF Filters, Multiplexers, Switched Filter Banks and Integrated assemblies, from 30 MHz to 51 GHz. All products are subject to same rigorous design, manufacturing & inspection criteria. Regardless of the application, our internal process and procedures help ensure that all products are fully compliant to all specifications. Our R & D activities are constantly evaluating new materials, plating techniques, and manufacturing processes to offer the highest performing components available today.
Please use our Filter Select+plus software to select the filter for your application along with S parameter data.
In-house capabilities encompass design, development, manufacturing and testing. Providing operational excellence tailored to volume manufacturing requirements, global sourcing, world class engineering talent and rapid prototyping.
We foster a Culture of Quality to be the best at what we do ... Quality, it is all about the Customer.
Planar X Series is part of an overarching initiative by Smiths Interconnect that entails the creation of best-in-class planar RF filter solutions designed and tested to support various applications markets.
Smiths Interconnect filters are available to suit a wide range of applications in the military, commercial and aerospace fields. For more information, please see the notes for each filter topology.
Superior performance is achieved through the use of high "Q" components and computer modeling.
For band-reject filters, please contact the factory.
Cavity filter designs are available in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 40 GHz and with bandwidth options from less than 0.5% to over 66%. Cavity filters offer the user very low insertion loss, steep skirt selectivity, and narrower bandwidths than discrete component filters.
Ceramic Filters are manufactured in two basic styles for both commercial and military applications. The high volume, low cost units in open frame, non-hermetic packages are most often used in commercial applications. The lower volume, custom designed hermetic packages find wide usages in military applications. Both styles are available in various mounting configurations. In both instances the same high “Q” coaxial resonators are used which yield low insertion loss and excellent stability over temperature. A low ripple Chebyshev transfer function is standard with bandpass filters and diplxers available.
Miniature discrete component filters are designed to give optimal performance where small size is critical. Electrical and mechanical requirements for each design are computer-generated, taking into consideration realizable "Q" and environmental conditions, then analyzed using our unique software, thereby reducing the amount of trial and error alignment.
Smiths Interconnect's Iris Bandpass Filters featuring Millitech technology offer class leading low insertion loss with a wide range of passband frequencies to meet mission critical requirements.
Smiths Interconnect offers a series of discrete lumped element filters and diplexers with standard “off the shelf” packaging utilizing the same internal components, circuit topologies and transfer functions found in Lorch filter products manufactured for military and space applications. Standard units are an ideal choice when hermetic sealed packages are not a requirement and when lower cost and quick delivery are essential.
Smiths Interconnect’s tunable filter products are designed to provide high performance in a single package. While typically used in test and measurement applications, these products can also be ruggedized for mobile and remote applications.
Smiths Interconnect is a leading provider of technically differentiated electronic components, subsystems, microwave and radio frequency products that connect, protect and control critical applications in the commercial aviation, defense, space, medical, rail, semiconductor test, wireless telecommunications, and industrial markets.
