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 developing High Power Multiplexers in the framework of a new ESA contract

on 26 Feb 2019 in News |

RF Microtech has been awarded a new ESA ARTES AT project entitled DOMUK – Dielectric-loaded high-power Output de-MUltiplexer at Ku/Ka-band. The project goal is the development of 250 W-class, Ku-band and Ka-band two-channel output de-multiplexers with 240-250 MHz channel bandwidth and 30% footprint reduction with respect to the state of the art. Engineering Models (EM) will be designed, manufactured and tested in relevant environment. RF Microtech is the project main proponent and prime contractor, confirming again its highly professional predisposition for innovative component developing in the space field.

A new H2020 project for next generation wireless systems

on 22 Feb 2019 in News |

Starting from January 2019, RF Microtech is involved in a new H2020 project called NANOSMART – NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems. Led by Thales SAS (France), the project will be conducted in collaboration with ten of the most advanced European Industries, SMEs and Research Institutes involved in the field of nano-component and smart system development. The final objective of NANOSMART project is to develop smart monolithic Tx/Rx front-ends capable of RF switching, power management and high efficiency at low cost and footprint. NANOSMART responds to these needs by developing a new technological platform based on CNT and 2D material electronics that are the two most promising technologies to replace silicon electronics in the future. RF Microtech is responsible of the “System Integration and Tests” Work Package and leads the development of one of the two demonstrators, namely a 24 GHz Tx/Rx smart module for IoT applications.

RF Microtech at ESA SatCom Final Presentation Days

on 25 Jan 2019 in News |

RF Microtech has successfully concluded two ESA ARTES projects, namely Mignon – Microwave Micromachining Filters and COMFIL- Compact C/Ku Broadband Waveguide Filters,which will be presented at the ESA SatCom Final Presentation Days Based on different technologies, the two projects led to the creation of highly innovative miniaturized filters for space on-board applications. The MIGNON Filters have been produced in Ka-band by combining multilayer and micromachining technologies. Besides being SMT  (Surface Mount Technology) compatible, such filters have the advantages of having a light mass and a very small footprint. In the framework of COMFIL project, novel filters in C- and Ku-bands have been developed, based on the combination of TM dual mode resonators and combline resonators in waveguide technology. This approach ensures low loss, high compactness and wide spurious-free stop-bands. Both presentations will be given on Wednesday 30th January 2019 in ESA/ESTEC....
