This is a design kit for Mini-Circuits LTCC filters. Each kit contains four PCBs and four SMA-F connectors. Two Blue PCBs with FV1206 footprints can be used to design either a:
- Low Pass Filter or
- High Pass Filter
The other two Green PCBs can be turned into a:
- Band Pass Filter
Band Pass filter 1000-2000 MHz. Use the following components: HFCN-1000 and LFCN-2000. Both these parts have FV1206 footprints and can be soldered into the corresponding sections of the Green PCB.
High pass filter with a corner frequency of 1000 MHz. Solder a HFCN-1000 filter into the FV1206 footprint on the Blue PCB.
Band Pass filter 3500-5000 MHz. On the Green PCB, solder a HFCN-3500 filter into the FV1206-1 footprint and a LFCN-5000 filter into the FV1206 footprint in series with it.
Mini-Circuits provides a convenient sample service and you can order some LTCC filter samples from their website.
Building filters with this kit is super-easy.
