AVX has released a series of 15W low pass integrated thin film (ITF) SMD filters that exhibit low insertion loss and sharp attenuation in high frequency wireless applications spanning 512MHz to 1,800MHz.

Measuring 7mm (±0.3mm) x 4mm (±0.2mm) x 1mm, the low pass LP Series filters are rated for 15W continuous power, operating and storage temperatures spanning -40°C to 85°C, and frequencies spanning 512MHz to 1,800MHz; although, frequencies spanning 300MHz to 2,000MHz are available upon request.

With a 2816 chip size, maximum height of 1mm and rugged construction based on thin film multilayer technology, the 15W LP series filters deliver high frequency performance in mobile communications systems, satellite TV receivers, GPS, vehicle location systems and WLANs.

Also, with a characteristic impedance of 50Ω and nickel-/lead-free-solder (Sn100) coated terminations compatible with automatic soldering technologies (reflow, wave soldering, vapour phase and manual), the RoHS compliant LP Series filters are 100% tested for electrical parameters, and both visual and mechanical characteristics.
