Media Alert: NI AWR Design Environment Application Note “How to Improve Second-harmonic Passband Rejection Microstrip Side-coupled Filters” Now Available

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – March 2, 2015


NI (formerly AWR Corporation) released a new NI AWR Design Environment application note, “ Improving the Second-harmonic Pass Band Rejection of Microstrip Side-coupled Filters.” Because of their low cost and easy manufacturability, side-coupled filters constructed from printed-circuit board (PCB)-based microstrip are widely used throughout the industry. One of the main drawbacks of the side-coupled filter is its limited rejection of the second harmonic. This application note demonstrates a solution that mitigates this problem through the introduction of notch-filter elements that improve the overall rejection of side-coupled filters at the second harmonic without significantly affecting the filter passband behavior.
