Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a lineup of multilayer organic filters from KYOCERA AVX.

KYOCERA AVX’s MLO filters utilize high dielectric constant and low loss materials to realize high-Q passive printed elements, such as inductors and capacitors, in a multilayer stack. The filters can support a variety of frequency bands and multiple wireless standards and are less than 1.0 mm in thickness. All filters are expansion-matched to most organic PCB materials, resulting in improved reliability over standard Si and ceramic devices.

Typical applications include mobile communication, GPS, vehicle location systems, wireless LANs, satellite receivers and instrumentation.

Additional key features and benefits of the MLO filters include:

  • Wide frequency range
  • Excellent isolation
  • Low loss
  • 50 Ω impedance
  • No performance variance with temperature changes
  • Surface mountable
  • High part-to-part and loT-to-loT repeatability.

KYOCERA AVX’s family of MLO filters includes highpass, lowpass and bandpass filters.
