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...

Miniaturized Filters for on-board processor-based payloads

on 9 Jan 2020 in News |

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 For more information contact us and visit the project web page at this...

‘COmpact Ku/Ka-band filters for On-board processor-based payloads’ ESA project for 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 (ESA Artes Advanced Technology, Contract 4000129096/19/NL/AF)   OBJECTIVES Miniaturising the broadband filters and implementing differential interfaces to the ADCs and DACs (e.g. by integrating baluns) will significantly impact the size of analogue pre- and post-processors. Up to 30% size reduction could 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). At the same time, due attention must be paid to implementing good gain and phase stability and tracking through the different analogue signal processing chains, which is important in digital beam forming applications. The objective of this project is to design, manufacture and test miniaturised Ku- and Ka-band RF filters integrating a wide-band differential interface for on-board digital signal processors.   TRL Level From 4 to 6   STATUS On-going   PARTNERS   RF microtech s.r.l.

New testing and manufacturing capabilities

on 28 Nov 2019 in News |

2019, a crucial year for RF Microtech which keeps investing in new equipment for production and testing of satellite antennas and RF components. One of the most significant investment has been intended for the development of a near field measurement system, specifically, for antennas from L up to K band Furthermore, RF Microtech acquired a CNC machine for the manufacturing of high-precision mechanical parts and a climate chamber, with both temperature and humidity control, to perform environment and qualification tests. Through this new acquisitions RF Microtech is preparing for a further expansion of the production area which is foreseen in the next...
