APITech Introduces High Power SAW Filters

Small size, rugged construction, and reliable operations.

As applications in the radio-frequency world face higher power demands and more RF pollution, the SAW filters that have shaped front-end designs for decades have to adapt to these challenges. Today, SAW filters now face more high-power RF surges from many sources.

APITech's new high-power SAW filters are designed to address this issue. Satellites, defense, and electronic warfare are some of the key high-power and high-reliability applications that deal with the increasing electromagnetic frequency noise. As the only US-based manufacturer of high-power SAW filters, APITech uses an advanced manufacturing process that delivers higher power, tighter bandwidths, and expanded package options.

APITech's high-power filters target applications in the military, commercial aerospace, industrial, and commercial communications sectors. This filter is one of a new line of high-power SAW filters developed to meet the demands of an ever-transforming marketplace. The low insertion loss combined with the increased input power handling will allow for it to be employed in all systems where the need for surviving a high input power environment is crucial.

APITech's high-power SAW Filter breaks new ground by adding high power input capabilities up to +35 dBm CW at +125C. Our SAW product offering covers the 20 MHz – 2.6 GHz spectrum and in narrow, wide, and fractional bandwidths. These 20-500 MHz SAWs are capable of taking up to +35 dBm CW input power with very little degradation of the specifications of the filter.
