Static Microwave Filters

Indiana Micro’s (IM) custom static filters are designed and built to your specifications. IM’s customer static filters are great for applications where size is a critical design factor, such as in handheld and airborne electronics.
IM’s custom static filters include:

  • Poles: up to 9 or more
  • Insertion Loss: typically less than 3 dB
  • Center frequencies (fc): 2 GHz  to 50 GHz
  • Bandwidth percentage (Δf/ fc): up to 200%
  • Dimensions (LxWxD): typically less than 20 mm x 10 mm x 2 mm
  • Volume: typically less than 0.4 cm3 or 400 mm3
  • Power handling: 1 Watt approximately
  • Substrate: Low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC)


A CAD drawing and photo of an actual five (5) pole bandpass filter is shown at the right. The specifications for this filter are:
