CTS Corporation, through its subsidiary, CTS Electronic Components Inc., announces its new ClearPlex® Waveguide Duplexer, delivering performance comparable to air-cavity with 2x to 4x smaller size, for cellular infrastructure, 6-10 GHz microwave, NLOS backhaul and military communications. CTS will be displaying and demonstrating performance of these new RF ceramic waveguide filters on 3-5 June, 2014 at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Tampa, FL, USA, at booth number 322.
CTS' innovative ClearPlex® Waveguide Duplexer uses patent-pending structures and proprietary high-quality ceramic formulations in duplexer and band pass filter configurations for 3GPP bands 1, 2, 4 and 7, with more bands in development. This technology can support input powers of up to 500 Watts peak and 50 Watts average. Key attributes offered by ClearPlex® Waveguide Duplexer include low insertion loss of 1 to 2 dB, frequency ranges from 1700 MHz to 10 GHz, sharp rejection points reaching up to -80 dB and Passive Intermodulation (PIM) levels less than -110 dBm.
