Abstract
To address the Navy"s need for an improved, high-performance passband filter, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Software-Defined Radio (SDR) Colocated Agile Bandpass (SCAB) filter. This proposed device is based on a hybrid filter design utilizing MEMS voltage-tunable capacitors, lumped elements, and innovative microstrip designs to cover the large bandwidth. SCAB will consist of three primary components: (1) a lumped element filter that can tune from 20 MHz to 400 MHz; (2) a microstrip filter that can tune from 400 MHz to more than 2 GHz; and (3) a high-speed voltage controller that can communicate with SDR systems, which frequency hop. The innovation in the filter design will enable the device to provide improved bandpass performance. As a result, this device offers large tuning range from 20 MHz to>2 GHz, Q of>10, and low insertion loss of
