Miniaturized High-Power 7-Channel UHF Filter

Menlo Micro MM6005 UHF Filter

High Power miniaturized UHF filter

Menlo Micro has developed a miniaturized UHF Filter utilizing breakthrough Ideal Switch technology to provide a seven-channel discrete tuning range from 225-512MHz.

The filter’s innovative design results in low insertion loss across the passband, fast discrete switching, and high-power input handling.

When compared to traditional solid-state switched filter bank designs, the MM6005 exhibits 2 dB to 3 dB lower losses. The Ideal Switch technology enables greater than 3 billion switching cycles with very minimal change in performance over a temperature range of -40 to +85C.

The design also offers a considerable 90% reduction in size when compared with comparable solid-state or electromechanical switched filter bank designs.
