Planar Monolithics Industries, Inc. now offers an eight channel switched filter bank that covers passband frequencies of 950MHz to 18.05GHz. PMI Model 7SFB-950M18G-CD-SFF provides seven different passbands throughout the operating frequency which can be selected via a 3-Bit decoded transistor-transitor logic (TTL) signal. The eighth channel serves as a by-pass which will pass 950MHz to 18.05GHz from the input to the output. All passband channel losses are equalized to be within 2dB of one another. Switch speed is under 100nsec and voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) is better than 2.0:1. The housing measures 4.33" x 5.1" x 0.98".
