Not Available The development of advanced communication or electronic warfare systems requires high performance miniaturized microwave filters. Miniaturized high-Q evanescent (EV) is one of the most desirable filters due to its wide stopband and small size, especially for satellite down-converter applications where a few hundred EV filters are used. Currently, EV filters are made using very small capacitors in parallel with real or virtual inductors. The inductor size is directly related to the filter size. To reduce the size of current EV filters, the capacitance of resonate capacitors must increase significantly by employing film dielectric capacitors to replace the bulk alumina or quartz capacitors. Metal-Organic Chemical Liquid Deposition (MOCLD) technology is very promising for the growth of high quality dielectric thick film. In this Phase I proposal, NZ Applied Technologies proposes an innovative miniature and electrically tunable evanescent-mode filter. In our approach, high quality capacitors made by MOCLD technology will e implement3ed into evanescent-mode filter to realize a significant filter size reduction. Our innovative electrical tunable design of the filter will lead to a new generation of EV filters which are superb in performance compare to any EV filters currently available.
