Miniaturized Filters for on-board processor-based payloads
RF Microtech has been awarded a new ESA ARTES AT project entitled COKKO ‘COmpact Ku/Ka-band filters for On-board processor-based payloads’
The project goal is the development and space assessment of miniaturised Ku– and Ka-band RF filters integrating a wide-band differential interface for on-board digital signal processors.
Up to 30% size reduction can be achieved by combining advanced design techniques with three-dimensional implementation techniques such as Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (LTCC) or multilayer Printed Circuit Boards (PCB).
RF Microtech is the main proponent and prime contractor of the project, that will be conducted in collaboration with Thales Alenia Space – Italy
