AVX Releases New High-Performance MLO® Band-Pass Filters For RF/Microwave Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (May 3, 2018) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, has released a new series of low-profile, high-performance band-pass filters based on AVX's patented and proven multilayer organic (MLO®) high-density interconnect technology. The new BP Series MLO band-pass filters incorporate high-dielectric-constant and low-loss materials that are expansion matched to most organic PCB materials, providing improved reliability over standard silicon and ceramic devices, feature an ultralow profile of less than 0.556mm, and support 18 pass bands spanning 620-5,930MHz. The series also exhibits low insertion loss (1.57-2.41dB typical), low parasitics, 50Ω impedance, excellent rejection of out-of-band frequencies, and favorable heat dissipation characteristics, and is rated for 1W continuous RF power, making it ideal for use in a wide range of wireless applications, including: wireless communications systems, military and emergency first responder radios, UAVs, base stations, femtocells, microcells, wireless access points and terminals, and instrumentation equipment.
