GSM Cavity Filter
GSM Cavity Filters: The Major Roles They Play In Mobile Communication
AWG Tech has different GSM Cavity to cover the GSM Band, DCS 1800, WCDMA and PCS 1900 bands.
These include Tx Band Cavity Filter, Rx Band Cavity Filter and Full-Band Duplexer Filter.
ABPF-897M5BW35-01 : 880- 915 MHz Cavity Filter for GSM
Take a look at ABPF-897M5BW35-01. ABPF-897M5BW35-01 is a cavity filter specially designed for the GSM band from 880 MHz – 915 MHz. The insertion loss at the center frequency is 1.5 dB. It is able provide more than 50dB rejection from DC to 865MHz and from 930-2500MHz. The ABPF-897M5MW35-01 has the capability to handle a maximum power of 100W.
Major roles that GSM Cavity Filter Play
Thank god for “filters”. If filters were nonexistent, our electronics and communications equipment today would perhaps not be able to operate, or send signals, and do the jobs they were designed to. It’s because RF, or radio-frequency filters “attenuate” or they lessen/dissipate interference band of frequencies. Without filters, radio and telecommunication equipment (which includes medical devices) cannot receive signals, due to frequency jamming and distortion, and medical equipment may offer error-filled diagnosis too. Here’s a brief description of the basic elements of one filter type, GSM cavity filters.
What Does GSM Stand For?
Three major digital wireless telephone technologies are used today, and these include TDMA, CDMA and GSM, or the Global System for Mobile Communications. And in the GSM realm, GSM Cavity filters play a very important role or function.
GSM utilizes a variant of TDMA, and it is hailed as the most widely-used of the three technologies. GSM compresses analog data to digital, and sends them down into a channel with other streams of user data, with each in its own time slot. The GSM system operates or works at either the 900 MHz or 18 MHz frequency bands.
The advantages of using the GSM include less signal degradation or decline inside buildings, the ability to utilize repeaters, higher talk times, as well as the availability of SIM’s or Subscriber Identity Modules, which allows users to switch networks and handsets at will. GSM also covers much of the planet, thus international roaming should be not much of a problem.
GSM Cavity Filters
To ensure the smooth operation of GSM equipment and systems, GSM cavity or bandpass filters are designed, and used, to effectively halt the interference of signals of a close, or nearby CDMA frequency band, especially those that are close to the lower part of the P-GSM receive band.
All (or almost all) types of GSM filters are designed, customized and manufactured with a varying array of pass bands, cut-off and attenuation levels. These filters have a pass band of 825 MHz to 880 MHZ and 909 MHz to 960 MHz.
GSM filters are widely used for a variety of functions and purposes, and among these include trucking communication, mobile communication, aerospace, radar, electronic countermeasures, satellite communication, digital broadcasting systems, indoor and outdoor coverage and other communication systems or jobs.
Today, GSM cavity filters come in a wide assortment of frequencies and package styles, with all filter types designed for outdoor applications. These are also designed and manufactured for base stations, repeaters, and any task which requires higher performance and higher power handling. These rugged coaxial cavity filters are also designed to withstand extremely high temperatures of around -50 to 90 degrees C.
In the wide world of mobile communications, a GSM cavity filter does a wonderful job of filtering or blocking high-level, out-of-band transmissions or intermodulation in the mobile receiver. The result is a more seamless, interference-free and high level of transmission, and communication quality.
