S-Band Bandstop Filter
S-Band Bandstop filter can be designed to reject a narrowband of frequencies within 2-4GHz. AWG Tech supplies a wide range of S-band band rejection filter globally. One such filter is ABSF-2140MBW60-01, a 2.11-2.17GHz bandstop filter.
2110-2170MHz Cavity Band Rejection Filter
ABSF-2140MBW60-01 has a 50-dB rejection in the frequency from 2110 – 2170MHz. It features a low insertion loss not more than 2 dB in the passband from dc – 2085MHz and from 2.195 to 5.5 GHz.

The Strategic Uses of S-Band Band Stop Filters
Have you ever wondered what frequency band or range the International Space Station (ISS) or the US Space Shuttle, and even the European and Chinese or Indian satellites use? One of the most commonly-used frequency ranges is the “S-band”. This frequency band covers the 2 to 4 gigahertz (GHz) range and is one which crosses the standard boundaries between the UHF (ultra high frequency) and SHF (super high frequency) domains. Let’s delve a bit deeper into the fantastic world of the S-band, and the strategic uses of the S-band band stop filters.
What Else Is The S-Band For?
The S-band is home to a wide assortment of commercial, military and scientist users. This includes weather satellites, communications satellites, surface ship and aircraft radar. The S-band’s 10-cm short-band radar ranges goes from 1.55 to 5.2 GHz. In the United States, the S-band is the frequency of choice for popular satellite-based services like the DARS, or Digital Audio Radio Service, which is from 2.31 to 2.36 GHz, and is used by famous providers such as Sirius XM Radio.
In China, the S-band is widely used for radio and mobile TV transmissions, by China Multimedia Mobile Broadcasting. In Europe, Inmarsat and Solaris Mobile were awarded portions of the S-band by telecommunications regulators, so they could provide mobile and satellite communications services for at least 18 years.
In other countries, the S-band is also the home range of what’s called direct-to-home satellite television services, and the frequency range allocated is usually from the 2.5 to 2.7 GHZ band. However, some nations don’t use the S-band, but instead go with the Ku-band.
The frequency range is also used for wireless network equipment and services, including cordless telephones, wireless headphones, and other consumer electronic devices. If you regularly use Bluetooth, you’ll be happy to know that it operates between 2.402 and 2.480 GHZ in the S-band!
The Unique Characteristics Of Band Stop Filters
Band-suppression, band elimination, band rejection, and notched filter. These are a few of the different terms that “band stop filters” are called today. The filter’s main task is to attenuate (at very low levels) all frequencies beyond the cut-off limit, and passes all frequencies within the accepted frequency range.
But while a “band pass” filter admits frequencies within a given band, and rejects the frequencies below it and above it, a band stop filter does the reverse role, which is reject frequencies within the band, and let through the frequencies outside it.
For instance, a band stop filter with cut-off frequencies of 400 hertz (Hz) and 600 Hz would allow entry to frequencies below 400 Hz and above 600 HZ to pass through the filter unscathed. However, the filter blocks or halts the frequencies between 400 Hz and 600Hz.
How would satellites and radar systems, including direct-to-home satellite TV services (or even cordless phones) work properly, if the S-band band stop filter were not present, or invented yet? The good thing is that these workhorses are here, and they continue to do their jobs efficiently, without much fanfare, to the benefit of everyone!
