Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) was fundamental in the development of Suspended Substrate filter technology, which is used extensively for high frequency, broadband filters. Its main advantages are small size, high Q and good temperature stability in conjunction with very repeatable manufacturing with very little tuning, giving an elliptical responses with excellent close-in rejection. This type of filter is ideally suited to Electronic Warfare systems (ECM, ESM & ELINT) and Test Equipment applications where broadband performance in critical.
TMS SUSPENDED SUBSTRATE FILTERS AT-A-GLANCE
TMS can supply individual filters or can be combined with Lumped Element, or Combline filters to offer greater performance. In addition integrated assemblies with core filter content can be combined with Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA’s) or Switches to offer increased functionality.
With the use of proprietary software TMS has combined both excellent filter characteristics with years of experience, to offer its customers a unique capability that meets the most demanding requirements where outstandingly high Q is required.
