How to specify a customized Filter design

How to specify a customized Filter design

As an electronics design engineer working with RF signals, it is not the easiest part to select the proper filter characteristics. Communicating all the required parameters for a matching filter design and quotation is always a challenge. BSC filters helps you by providing a web-interface for several types of filters to assist you with providing complete and correct infomation to BSC so that BSC can make an initial proposal for the requested part. This can be an already existing part or a part which needs to be designed from scratch.

    Requirement Assistance

  • BSC offers you several webpages that you can use to define your filter requirements. A drawing explains the different parameters that are of importance to BSC to base a design on. Specific webpages are available for Bandpass, Bandstop, High pass and Low Pass Filters and there is also a webpage for diplexers.

  • Filter Definition Phase

  • The BSC engineer studies your requirements and selects the proper technology. Then collects, if needed, additional information and creates an initial proposal. Together with you the best fitting solution is chosen and the specification phase is closed, all parameters are fully documented.

  • Implementation Phase

  • BSC defines all steps within the production environment and manufactures the custom filter at BSC's facilities.

  • Main Advantages

    Filter Specification Assistance
  • Fully customized solution possibble
  • Fast Prototyping

  • MPG solutions to your RF Filter Design

    In 2014 Heynen has teamed up with the Microwave Product Group in Salesbury, Maryland, United States. Team players in this group are BSC-Filters, Dow-Key, K&L Microwave and Pole-Zero, four well-established companies in the RF industry.

    Providing solutions on filter design in a wide range of application areas, like communication, radar, industry, army and commerce. This covering Low to High Power, Low MHz to High GHz Range and miniaturization.

    Connection to the internet by RF is becoming a more or less a standard approach. Our phones, ipads, laptops, heating, lighting, all are using a more or less sophisticated connection to the internet.

    The MPG group has been publishing an article in the Microwave Journal, highlighting the trends and new market driven Filter advances, seen in the industry.

    In case you are looking for a solution in the RF space, Heynen and MPG can certainly help you in finding the right system, module part and, if needed, customized to your needs.

  • Need for ultra-miniature switches in you application?

    Your application needs RF switching on you PCB but there is no space available.  Dow Key now has the possibility to reduce your switch to miniature level.

    The switches are designed with an overall size of 0.75 x 0,75 x 0,56 Inch with a weight of 0,5 Ounces, power consumption of these switches is kept very low.

    This brings the switches on your PCB for sattelite and space applications enabling you to go one step further in miniaturisation

  • Dow-Key Microwave Miniature MS series

    Dow-Key Microwave introduces the next generation of switch matrices: the Miniature MS series (or MMS series). MMS is ideal for test and measurement requirements. The series is equipped with high-performance Reliant Switches™ providing 0.03 dB insertion loss repeatability across DC to 26.5 GHz with minimum 10 million life cycles for SPDT and 5 million for SP6T. MMS is suitable for many applications where RF switches are needed, including extensive DUT testing. The series needs 12VDC power supply with switches controlled remotely via TCP/IP Ethernet and HTTP-Server; a built-in “Sequencer” feature allows the user to program up to ten 500-step sequence programs. A VAC-to-DC adapter is included. (RF cables are not.)
