Johanson Technology, Inc has announced the 0896BM15A0001 Matched Balun Filter. This device was designed for Texas Instruments CC11XX applications for the popular European 868MHz SRD (Short Range Device) band, ETSI EN 300 220, and the 915 MHz US ISM band. Insertion Loss is 1.5dB max with 2nd harmonic rejection of 25dB min and 3rd, 4th and 5th harmonic rejection of 35dB min.
This ceramic chip matched balun filter, when used in combination with TI’s CC11XX chip, provides customers with a more robust and cost effective solution. More specifically, the combination of the TI and JTI chips offers a reduced component count design providing a more compact solution that is less susceptible to production variation from the effects of variations in individual components and placement variations that ultimately affect system yields.
“The cooperation with Johanson Technology has resulted in a product which simplifies high-performance RF design,” said Erling Simensen, Low-Power RF Product Marketing, Texas Instruments. “With Johanson Technology’s Matched Balun Filter, customers can now get optimal RF performance in a very small PCB area without needing a discrete balun and filter components.”
Together with one of Johanson Technology’s sub 1GHz ceramic antenna solutions (0868AT43A0026 or 0915AT43A0026), the 0896BM15A0001 provides an optimal RF front end solution for size constrained applications.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
