Description

Millitech series FHP high pass filters are designed and constructed to provide a sharp skirt selectivity of low frequencies with minimum insertion loss in the passband. These filters offer significantly high rejection only a few GHz below the passband edge frequency.

Series FHP filters are available from 18 to 140 GHz. Hence, they are ideal for eliminating local oscillator leakage and for sideband (or image band) rejection in receivers and broadband downconverters where local oscillator frequency is below the desired signal band. These filters can also be used as receiver protectors from high power at frequencies below the signal band.

In addition, they are ideally suited for use between millimeter-wave LNA and broadband mixers to eliminate the contributions due to noises from the image band. A broad bandpass filter can be configured by combining this filter with an appropriate low pass filter (series FLP) in tandem. The skirt selectivity (lower frequency rejection) increases with the length of the filter.

Filters with any cut-off frequency (passband cut-off) between 18 and 140 GHz can be produced with specified rejection (selectivity) at and below a desired lower frequency. Typical skirt selectivity is 10 to 12 dB/GHz below the cut-off frequency.
