C-Band High Pass Filter
C-Band High Pass Filter
C-Band high pass filter are commonly used in C-Band receivers to reject lower frequency interferers like WiMAX. C-Band high pass filter has cut-off frequencies from 4-8 GHz. Let’s take a look at some of C-Band High Pass filter that AWG Tech has.
|Part Number||Passband||Insertion Loss||Rejection||Description|
|AHPF-4G5-01||4.5 – 18 GHz||1.2 dB max||>40 dB @ dc – 3GHz||4.5-18 GHz C-Band High Pass Filter|
|AHPF-5G5-01||5.5 – 16 GHz||2 dB max||45dB @ DC～4.25GHz||5.5-16 GHz C-Band High Pass Filter|
|AHPF-6G-01||6 – 18 GHz||2 dB max||≥40dB @ DC～5.5GHz||6-18 GHz C-Band High Pass Filter|
|AHPF-7G5-01||7.5 – 16 GHz||2 dB max||>40 dB @ dc- 6 GHz||7.5-16 GHz C-Band High Pass Filter|

The Valuable Functions Of C Band High Pass Filters
In the amazing, yet highly-technical world of electronics and communications, frequencies and signals normally pass through the airwaves every second of the day, but our senses don’t even know they’re floating out there! But who regulates the transmission or traffic of all these frequencies? “Scientists and electronics experts call these items electric-circuit “filters”, which are devices that transmit only frequencies above a prescribed frequency limit. And as there are different frequencies in the radio spectrum, let’s focus on one filter that manages frequencies in the lucrative “C-band”, and it’s called a C band high pass filter.
What’s A High Pass Filter?
The electronic filters of today come in different shapes and sizes, and they perform various functions in different bands within the radio spectrum. Take for example the C-band high class filter, which “passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency, and “attenuates” or cripples/dissipates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency.
High pass filters are categorized as “three-element” filters, as they have a “T” or “π” configuration or topology, just like low pass and band-stop filters. This means that high pass filters have a very low impedance at high frequencies, and a very high impedance at low frequencies. This also means that the filter can be inserted or added into a transmission line, and result in high frequencies being passed, and low frequencies being reflected.
C-band – The Range Of Satellite Transmission Frequencies
If you can’t afford to miss your favorite TV or radio programs, then you should be thankful for the C-band frequency spectrum, because this band is actually the range of satellite transmission frequencies, from 3700 to 4200 megahertz (MHz), which TV and radio channels utilize to transmit to larger satellite dishes.
It’s the original frequency allocation for the world’s communications satellites, and it uses the 3.7 to 4.2 gigahertz (GHz) range for downlink, and 5.925 to 6.425 gigahertz (GHz) for uplink. However, C-band frequencies vary in different parts of the planet, with the Extended C-band, Super Extended C-band, INSAT C-band, Palapa C-band, Russian C-band and LMI C-band using slightly different approved frequency ranges.
But unlike direct-broadcast services, which deliver subscription-only TV programs and services (like pay-per view and others), the C-band is mainly utilized for open satellite communications, for full-time satellite television networks, and even raw satellite feeds.
When it comes to letting approved frequencies pass, and blocking out-of-range frequencies, high pass filters for the C-band do the job. However, each filter type or model comes with its own design and construction.
For example, most high pass filters for the C-band reject terrestrial interference (from WiMax, Radar and C-band transmitters) and are environmentally-sealed and moisture resistant, since humidity and moisture are often the causes of degraded, or poor-quality satellite transmissions.
Filters are described by a couple of common characteristics, among which include the frequency range of the filter’s “pass band”. The filter’s pass band refers to the range of frequencies over which it will pass an incoming signal, and signal frequencies situated outside of the pass band are attenuated.
In conclusion, a C-band high pass filter’s job will most likely resemble that of a traffic enforcer or policeman, in which the enforcer manages the flow of traffic on a certain street corner, allowing certain vehicles to pass a at one point, and preventing other vehicles from blocking the normal flow of traffic.
