LCP Based Planar High Q Embedded Band Pass Filter for Wireless Applications
Keywords:Embedded passives, High-Q, Polymer, Band Pass Filter
A novel miniaturized high-Q embedded passive polymer substrate based bandpass operating at LBand is offered.Alow profile, compact filter with high performance and high rejection out of band is presented. High Q passives such as inductors, capacitors and matching networks are embedded in the filter. It is easy to design. Embedded layers are integrated for 3D integration, parasitics are removed and interconnection losses are bargained by de embedding method. The filter is designed, simulated for Lband frequency for miniaturized mixed signal applications.
