Hi–Rel Filters

The Military & Space family of Vectron filter products offers the highest level of reliability for harsh and mission–critical environments. With each application having unique requirements, Vectron offers custom filter designs with a wide range of packaging technologies for ruggedized applications:

  • Surface–mount, through–hole and connector–type packages available
  • Qualification according to MIL–STD–883 and / or pre–defined (e.g. ESCC 3502) or custom Space Qualification Plans
  • Ruggedized modules with internal matching
  • Hi–Rel versions of standard designs available

Hi–Rel SAW Filters

A full range of SAW device designs cover a center frequency range from 30 MHz to 2.7 GHz with the following features:

  • Low–Loss SAW filters for RF frontend applications with low insertion attenuation of 1...5 dB, a center frequency range up to 2.7 GHz and miniature package solutions
  • Loss–reduced high–performance IF filters with insertion attenuation levels of 5...15 dB, a center frequency range up to 1 GHz and a fractional bandwidth range up to 60%
  • Precision SAW filters with shape factors down to 1.03 (B30dB/B3dB) up to a center frequency range of 1 GHz

Hi–Rel Discrete Filters

Ruggedized solutions for high-performance filter requirements in parameter ranges inaccessible to miniature SAW designs due to constraints in high signal power, ultra-low or ultra-high fractional bandwidth or extreme stopband attenuation:

  • LC–Filters for low–pass, high–pass and wide–band band–pass or band–stop requirements
  • Discrete Crystal Filters with flexible filter characteristics
  • Monolithic Crystal Filters with highest Q–values and superior stopband attenuation
