APITech, a leading provider of capabilities that protect, power, and process critical RF and electronics applications showcased early samples of the company’s new line of High Power SAW Filters at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2022 in Denver this week.
The backbone of digital transformation is the wireless spectrum. One of the key threats to systems using that backbone is electromagnetic confusion, which will increase exponentially as the transformation accelerates. The wireless interface of every digitally transformed device, machine, or service will need RF filtering technology to ensure that a clean signal is received and processed.
High power SAW (surface acoustic wave) technology provides essential signal filtering/conditioning for systems that require sustained input power of 1 W and higher. These include satellite, defense, electronic warfare, and other high-reliability and high-power applications.
APITech has developed new SAW Filter technology using an advanced manufacturing process that will deliver the higher power, tighter bandwidths, and expanded package options required by these systems. APITech is the only US-based manufacturer of this high-power technology.
“As an industry leader in SAW Filter development for decades, APITech has been working with our customers to understand and respond to these higher power requirements,” says Ian Dunn, Chief Technology Officer at APITech. “We are excited to announce this new line of high-power SAW filters that can meet those demands. Going forward we plan to extend this high-power capability across the entire frequency range and all package types.”
