‘COMpact broadband FIlters at C and Ku band based on Dielectric materials ”  ESA project for the development and space assessment of miniaturised C and Ku RF filters based on dielectric materials (ESA Artes Advanced Technology, Contract O/1-9737/19/NL/NR)   OBJECTIVES The objective is to design, produce and test compact broadband C-band and Ku-band input filters based on dielectric materials. The use of advanced manufacturing processes such as additive manufacturing (AM) will be exploited with the aim of optimizing the geometry of the final piece, improving its performance and minimizing mass and dimensions. The use of additive manufacturing would also make the realization phase of the various sub-parts more efficient, for example minimizing the number of sub-parts to be assembled for the final device. The aim is to reduce the volume of the C-band and Ku-band input filters by 50%, compared to the current reference standard, while maintaining substantially unchanged all the electrical performance parameters with respect to the current state-of-the-art.

Metamaterial Antennas for Satellite IoT Market

on 21 Feb 2020 in News |

“METIoT – Full Duplex Steerable Antenna for Mass Market Interactive Terminals” is the full title of the latest RF Microtech project approved by the European Space Agency. The project objective is the development and experimental verification of a novel class of low cost fully steerable Ka band antenna for SATcom applications based on an innovative use of metasurface technology. The market targeted is IoT where low-power (for battery-run operations) and low-cost are key aspects. RF Microtech is the main proponent and prime contractor of the project, that will be carried out in collaboration with two other Italian SME operating in the space field, namely WAVE UP and LINKS For more information don’t hesitate to  contact us...

RF Microtech’s president appointed as High Official of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy

on 31 Jan 2020 in News |

We are proud to announce that Professor Roberto Sorrentino, the founder of president of RF Microtech, has been appointed as High Official of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy, for his commitment in the field of research and development. The prestigious award was bestowed by the Italian Head of State, Sergio Mattarella, upon proposal of President of the Council Giuseppe Conte. Before founding RF Microtech company, Professor Sorrentino was full Professor of Electromagnetic fields at the Perugia University, in which he has been the Dean of Engineering Faculty. He has devoted his research activity to electromagnetism and to its different applications in Telecommunication Systems and Industrial Sensors. He was one of the founders and first president of European Microwave Association and of the Italian Society of Electromagnetism. During its activity he received numerous international acknowledgements, such as: the title of Fellow of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 1990, the IEEE Third Millennium Medal in 2000 and in 2005 the Microwave Career Award of IEEE (the only Italian to receive this award). In 2007, together with a group of young engineers (his former students) Professor Sorrentino founded RF Microtech, that now leads with excellent...
