MCV Microwave High Performance Exact Shape Ceramic Filters
MCV Microwave, a leader in high-quality dielectric resonator, substrate and filter, is offering high performance exact shape ceramic filters to space, aerospace defense and military industries. These bandpass filters exhibit low passband insertion loss, sharp roll off, maintain ultimate rejection, exact shape with matched delay. For example, A 2,300 MHz filter has ~0.5 dB insertion loss over 25 percent bandwidth and 40 dB near band rejection up to 5 to 6 GHz Wi-Fi band in 2” x 0.6” x 0.4” package, as shown.

Micro Lambda Wireless
Substrate Integrated Waveguide (SIW) LTCC Bandpass Filter
Mini-Circuits’ BFCV-2852+ is the industry’s first SIW filter on LTCC substrate. This model allows for precise filtering over a narrow passband from 28 to 28.8 GHz. BFCV-2852+ provides insertion loss as low as 2.3 dB and stopband rejection up to 35 dB combined with all the benefits of LTCC technology including a tiny size (3.2 x 2.5 mm) outstanding reliability and repeatable performance for volume production.
Norden Millimeter’s 18 to 40 GHz Down-Converter
The NDC1840I0217N14 is an 18 to 40 GHz down-converter, part of Norden Millimeter’s expanding line of catalog and custom frequency converters. This product is available with a 0.5 to 18 GHz bypass channel and hermetic case. Custom designs incorporate temperature compensation, variable gain and meet military environmental requirements. Norden can also provide RF and microwave assemblies which include frequency conversion, switch matrices, amplifiers, LNAs and filters.
Cyan High Bandwidth
Cyan High Bandwidth offers the same excellent radio performance as Cyan with more bandwidth, offering 3 GHz per radio chain and up to eight radio chains per system. This results in the ability to capture 18 GHz of bandwidth and is met by an equally impressive digital interface that enables data to be sent over 4 x 100 Gbps Ethernet connections. Together with the flexible channel count, highest RF bandwidth and highest digital backhaul in the industry, Cyan High Bandwidth offers unmatched performance.

SPINNER Rotary Joints Fly to Mars
The Chinese Tianwen-1 Mars mission carried special space-appropriate single- and dual-channel X-Band rotary joints from SPINNER on board. Following its launch on July 23, 2020, it became the first Chinese spacecraft to go into orbit around the red planet on February 10, 2021. Rotary joints from SPINNER are making a crucial contribution to driving technological advances and enabling precise communication in outer space. Outer space is probably one of the harshest environments in which SPINNER’s products are used, they must meet the strictest imaginable requirements in terms of reliability, precision and quality.
