Vectron International now offering fully Integrated Diplexer Solutions
Smallest GNSS Diplexer solution on the market
– Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of Precision Oscillators, Timing Solutions and SAW Filters for Communication, Industrial, Military and Space applications, today announced the addition of Integrated Diplexer Solutions to their broad SAW Filter product portfolio. The product offering will be showcased in hall B6 booth 336, at the Electronica Show in Munich, Germany from November 8th
"These small form factor high–performance GNSS diplexers are the latest addition to a comprehensive portfolio of GNSS filters supporting numerous single and multi–system architectures", said Andre du Hamel, General Manager of the SAW Filter Product Group. "These diplexers were developed to simplify RF frontend architecture for designers of high–performance GNSS receivers."
By replacing several components including two discrete filters and several (typ. 3–5) discrete reactive matching elements, this drop–in 50ohm–impedance component greatly simplifies the design of dual–band GNSS frontends. As challenging navigation tasks, such as Agricultural Automation, Construction and Mining, or Autonomous Vehicles continue to evolve and GNSS frontend systems are relied upon to achieve the centimeter–scale positioning accuracies, simplifying the design architecture of these systems by reducing overall component counts as well as footprint size will become increasingly paramount.
- Fully integrated diplexer solutions for dual band (1200MHz + 1600MHz) GNSS receivers supporting all major receiver architectures
- Solutions for commercial applications, covering multi–system architectures (GPS + Glonass + Galileo + Beidou – TDX1210) and for single–system (only GPS – TDX1227) architectures
- Miniature and hermetic LTCC package 3.8mm x 3.8mm² for applications requiring high performance in harsh environments
- High power handling capabilities for professional applications with potential strong interferers
In addition to the Diplexer Solutions, Vectron also offers customer's innovative precision timing solutions including OCXOs, TCXOs, VCXOs, VCSOs, XOs, SAW Filters and Rubidium Standards that offer low phase noise and ultra–low jitter timing solutions.
