Bilateral Meeting with the European Space Agency

on 19 Jun 2019 in News |

On 13th June, in Perugia, it took place the bilateral meeting between RF Microtech and the European Space Agency (ESA), with the participation of the ESA’s top management Dietmar Schmitt, Head of Technologies and Products Division, Domenico Mignolo, Head of Ground and User Segment Technologies & Products Section and Fabrizio De Paolis, Ground Segment Engineer in Telecommunications and Integrated Applications. As a matter of fact, since its foundation, RF Microtech collaborates with ESA in the framework of the ARTES Advanced Technology Program (formerly named ARTES Element 5 sub-element 5.1), which is the Agency’s main program for preparatory development of satellite communications. RF Microtech has accomplished several research projects which allowed the company to develop innovating electronic components for space applications, in particular in the field of mobile satellite antennas, filters and radio frequency circuits for space applications. This meeting represents a clear recognition of RF Microtech as a “Success Story” during these years of productive cooperation with ESA, to whom RF Microtech is extremely grateful for the significant and reliable support offered by...

EuMCE 2019: RF Microtech exposing the latest innovations

on 3 May 2019 in News |

The European Microwave Association (EuMA) is launching the European Microwave Conference in Central Europe (EuMCE), with associated Workshops and an Exhibition. EuMCE is a new series of events, held every two years, visiting the major cities of Central Europe. At the first edition, held in Prague on 13-15 May 2019, RF Microtech will be exhibiting its full range of microwave prototypes and products for SatCom and Space applications. Among the innovations presented at EuMCE 2019 there are: Compact and Low-consumption 2-port Switchable Filter Bank with Tunable Notch Filters from 2GHz to 18GHz Compact Waveguide Bandpass Filters for Broadband Space Applications in C and Ku-Bands. The detailed characteristics and performance of these two devices will be presented at the Conference Monday Session entitled “Advances in microwave filters”. EuMCE will provide an international forum where researchers, scientists and industrialists will have the opportunity to report and discuss on the latest advances in all areas of microwave theory, techniques and technology, with applications in communications, industry, science, medicine, etc, emphasizing on activities specifically developed in and relevant to Central Europe. Take a look at the full conference and exhibition program available at this link and don’t miss the opportunity to visit RF Microtech at...

RF Microtech Develops Complex UWB Filter In Record Time

on 19 Apr 2017 in News |

Another success story for RF Microtech. A great achievement for the company, whose outcomes in projecting Complex UWB Filter have been published by AWRCORP, but also exalted on the Microwave Journal (see the links below) The Design Challenge Expo Milano 2015 was a universal exposition that hosted over five thousand events in six months. The organizers had contracted with several mobile service providers to deploy stations throughout the expo area to provide complete mobile service coverage for the event. In addition, Italian government security services relied on mobile base stations strategically placed throughout the expo to ensure communications for the event, including the public safety network. However, the lobe of one of the mobile service antennas directly interfered with the communication signals of a critical security control base station and the issue had to be resolved immediately as the expo was opening in less than a month. RF Microtech was asked to provide a validated full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulation of a 2-port ultra-wideband (UWB) filter that could reject all five mobile service bands with greater than 35 dB of rejection. Furthermore, the filter had to ensure 80 MHz to 6 GHz wide-band transmission with insertion losses less than 2 dB RF Microtech’s client, H3G, also required that the device fit within a 1x1x0.2 meter enclosure, while still providing acceptable levels of coexistence to 6 GHz without signal degradation. The validated EM simulation had to be delivered within two weeks and the complete deployable device by the time the expo opened. The Solution “We chose Microwave Office because it could easily and quickly optimize the cascade of a series of full-wave component blocks of a very large and complex UWB filter structure. Using Microwave Office, we were able to reduce optimization and development time by 90 percent, a critical factor in delivering this project in a very short timeframe.”stated Roberto Sorrentino Honorary President of RF Microtech The RF Microtech design team immediately went to work developing a circuit model of five independent notched-band filters (NBFs) cascaded along a transmission line. The team chose NI AWR Design Environment, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, for this time-critical project. Each independent filter was designed as a 4th or 5th order NBF, composed...

Microwave and RF Engineering – Chinese Edition

on 6 Sep 2015 in News |

The book by R. Sorrentino (RF Microtech’s co-founder) and G. Bianchi Microwave and RF Engineering (edited by Wiley) has now been translated in Chinese. This outstanding book is an essential text for both students and professionals, combining detailed theory with clear practical guidance. It explores a large spectrum of topics within microwave and radio frequency (RF) engineering, encompassing electromagnetic theory, microwave circuits and components. It provides thorough descriptions of the most common microwave test instruments and advises on semiconductor device modelling. Microwave and RF Engineering presents up-to-date research and applications at different levels of difficulty, creating a useful tool for a first approach to the subject as well as for subsequent in-depth study. It is therefore indispensable reading for advanced professionals and designers who operate at high frequencies as well as senior students who are first approaching the...
