RF Filter and Multiplexer Design

Cavity, Lumped Element, Stripline, and Microstrip Filters

As a turn-key RF solutions provider, NuWaves offers RF filter design services rivaling the industry’s major filter manufacturers, specializing in high-performance designs and industry-leading lead time. From simple lumped element filters to clean your transmit signal, to printed circuit board-based stripline and microstrip filters, to multiplexed high-power and high-Q cavity filters and beyond, NuWaves’ engineers bring decades of experience to bear in the design, prototyping, tuning and testing of advanced RF filters.

In need of a simple lumped element or SAW drop-in filter for an existing system? NuWaves also offers a line of Miniature, Connectorized Filter products as well as a Harmonic Filter, and offers a Quick-Turn Custom Cavity Filters service. Also, don’t forget to read up on our latest RF design projects involving high-performance Multiplexers below.

GPS III Triplexer

NuWaves successfully completed multipaction testing exceeding 500 Watts, while achieving insertion loss of less than 0.5 dB, for a bandpass filter designed for Global Positioning System’s (GPS) L1 bandpass filter, the completed triplexer designed for the Air Foprce Research Lab’s (AFRL) Technologically Advanced N-plexer for GPS III Operation (TANGO), raising the bar for space qualified components by creating best-in-class multipaction performance.

Ultra-Low Passive Inter-Modulation (PIM) Diplexer

NuWaves Engineering designed an ultra-low PIM diplexer for MUOS satellite communications for the Navy. The design strategy focused on overcoming traditional electrical performance limitations of a PCB based diplexer. These elements included using atypically thick substrates and shadow traces to yield low insertion loss, and reduce current density to lessen the effects of PIM.

High Performance Triplexer

Ruggedized Triplexer Filter NuWaves Engineering

NuWaves Engineering developed a triplexer for use by the Communications at Speed and Depth Program(s) for the Navy. The triplexer designed by NuWaves Engineering was Military UHF SATCOM Band Compliant and MUOS Band Compliant allowing for ease of integration for the customer. Additionally, the final product also achieved a lightweight design, low insertion loss, low manufacturing cost, support of high G-Force applications, high out-of-band attenuation, high RF power handling capability, and high reliability.

Tri-Band Front End Multiplier

Design and Development of a multi-band Front-End filter employing tuned inter-digital filter techniques and the design of a multi-band multiplier for a telemetry system operating in L & S-Band.

Miniature RF Tuner

NuWaves’ HiperTUNER is a state-of-the-art miniature RF Tuner utilized for RF signals in the band of 200 MHz to 2.5 GHz. HiPerTUNER meets the demanding need for high performance receiver pre-selector and transmit filtering for applications involving RF communications and signal exploitation, inclusive of SIGNIT, COMINT, and ELINT.

The HiPerTUNER integrates with a host controller or terminal program and utilizes a straight-forward command/control interface for ease of integration. The HiPerTUNER provides high-dynamic range performance with low noise figure and boasts superb multiple-cascaded varactor-tuned filtering achieving bandpass filter bandwidths of 1-3%.
