Filters provide an essential function for many forms of RF circuits and in particular those used for radio communication of various forms. These filters enable the wanted signals to be accepted and the unwanted ones to be rejected. This is a simple description of the requirement, but in practice the implementation is not as easy. Filters are notoriously complicated to design and implement.
With satellites generally operating in the microwave regions, microwave filter technology impacts the design of many satellite filters. In particular, helical resonators provide a particularly applicable format for microwave satellite filters. Helical resonator filter technology offers a valuable trade-off between electrical performance and size.
This new book entitled Filter Design for Satellite Communications is a contemporary and comprehensive approach to the design of microwave filters with helical resonators.
The book provides a very detailed step-by-step approach to enable readers to quickly familiarize themselves with the basic concepts of microwave filter design and confidently engage with the design of helical resonator filters.
The implications of utilizing helical resonator filters for high power space applications are rigorously investigated and techniques for mitigating the power-handling limitations are discussed. In addition, examples by means of numerical and experimental results are presented throughout to illustrate the performance.
Surprisingly for a resource on filters, this book, Filter Design for Satellite Communications, is not packed full of equations and proofs that will not be used. Instead it takes a practical approach that enables real engineers, students and other users to be able to get to grips with the topic and use the information presented.
