A Novel Solution for Board Design Compatibility with High-Rejection LTCC Filters

Mini-Circuits’ BFHK-series of ultra-high stopband rejection LTCC filters accelerates the drive towards RF/microwave circuit miniaturization while completely redefining performance levels achievable by LTCC filters. The BFHK-series of filters now achieves stopband rejections in excess of 90 dB in a surface mount LTCC component consuming just a fraction of the footprint area of even high-k dielectric based planar solutions.
