AVX Corp.’s 8 W LP1206 Series high performance, integrated, thin film, lowpass filters feature miniature 1206 chip sizes with a sub-millimeter maximum height profile of 0.97 mm. Based on proven multilayer thin film technology, these 50 Ω SMD filters deliver low insertion loss and extremely sharp attenuation and are designed for wireless applications such as military and mobile communications, wireless large area networks, global positioning, vehicle location and satellite television receivers. Filters in the series are currently available in six standard frequencies: 700 and 860 MHz and 3.2, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.8 GHz, with intermediate frequencies between 700 MHz and 3.8 GHz available upon request.
Good for use on crowded PCBs, the LP1206 ITF filters measure just 3.08 mm x 1.6 mm x 0.87 mm (±0.1 mm) and have a rugged construction designed for reliable automatic assembly. Compatible with automatic soldering technologies, including: reflow, wave soldering and vapor phase, as well as manual assembly, they allow installers to visually inspect the solder fillet after mounting. The series has lead-free nickel/solder (Sn100) coated terminations for RoHS compliance.
The LP1206 ITF series provides a higher power complement to AVX’s existing 3 W LGA-terminated 1206 LP Series offering. They are rated for 8 W continuous power, with an operating and storage temperature range from −40°C to +85°C. They are 100 percent tested for electrical parameters and visual and mechanical characteristics and are shipped on tape and reel in standard quantities of 100, 500, 1000 and 2000 pieces. The lead-time for the series is currently 10 weeks.
