Title: Designing Custom Filters using Direct Synthesis and Network Transforms

Date:  Wednesday, June 26

Time:  10am PT

Why this webcast is important:
Unlike designing filters using template scaling of known topologies, direct synthesis starts from designing the custom filter response, followed by synthesizing all possible filter topologies from the customized filter transfer function. You then select the topology that is most economical and convenient for realization. Additional network transforms are then applied to the chosen topology for practical implementation into lumped and/or distributed circuits. Learn how to use this powerful direct synthesis technique for the design of custom filters, diplexers and matching networks from examples in a new book titled Filter Synthesis presented by the author.

Who should view:
RF, Microwave and Analog circuit or system designers who need to implement custom filter response such as notches, diplexers and multiplexers for their applications.
