LP series thin film filter. Source: AVX LP series thin film filter. Source: AVX AVX Corporation has released new 1800, 1900, 2400, 2900, 3500 and 4000 MHz 0805 high performance, low pass integrated thin film (ITF) SMD filters that exhibit low insertion loss and extremely sharp roll-off in high frequency wireless applications, including: mobile communications systems, microcell and picocell base stations, satellite TV receivers, global positioning systems (GPS), vehicle location systems and wireless large area networks (LANs).

Based on thin film multilayer technology, the LP Series filters deliver good high-frequency performance and feature an ultraminiature 0805 chip size with a rugged construction for reliable automatic assembly.

Measuring just 2.03 long x 1.55 wide x 1.02 high (mm), the low profile, low pass filters are rated for 8 W continuous power and operating and storage temperatures spanning -40° C to +85° C. Featuring characteristic impedance of 50 Ω and nickel/lead-free-solder (Sn100) coated terminations compatible with automatic soldering technologies (reflow, wave soldering, vapor phase and manual), the RoHS compliant LP Series filters are 100 percent tested for electrical parameters and both visual and mechanical characteristics, and are shipped on tape and reel.
