“Small user TErminal multiband DIplexers” –
ESA project for the development and space assessment of novel user terminal Ku/Ka band diplexers for space communications, ground segment (ESA/ESTEC Contract AO/1-8928/17/NL/CLP/gm)
Design, manufacturing, test and comparison of different technology concepts for user terminal Ku-/Ka-band diplexers using novel technologies, aiming at large-scale fabrication of RF compact filters compatible with planar monolithic circuits (SMD). Technologies like Micromachining, LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic) and SIW (Substrate Integrated Waveguide) on PCB will be investigated.
RF Microtech (Perugia, Italy) is the prime contractor, responsible for the electro-magnetic design and test. SIAE microelettronica (Milan, Italy) is the end user and it is involved in the electro-mechanical design and validation.
