Modern Methods for Microwave Filter Synthesis

Modern Methods for Microwave Filter Synthesis

Monday, September 21, 2015, 5:30 – 7:30 pm  @ The Cedar Rapids Public Library

Speaker: Professor Richard Cameron (C.Eng, FIEEE, FIET)

The presentation will focus on the coupling matrix representation of microwave filter electrical networks and the many opportunities for advanced microwave filter design that it opens up.  Although there are a number of commercial software tools available for the design of such filters, they are often applied without proper understanding of the Professor Richard Cameronfundamentals involved or awareness of alternative designs better suited to the specifications in hand, resulting in a device which is sub-optimal in terms of electrical and mechanical performance. Younger upcoming designers tend to rely on these packages, largely due to a scarcity of reference works and journal articles on the subject of modern filter network synthesis methods.

These state-of-the-art filter synthesis methods will be presented along with the new possibilities for meeting the very stringent specifications demanded by modern telecommunication, broadcast, radar and scientific/earth observation satellite systems in a style that minimizes mathematics and jargon.
