Project

Design, realization, and analysis of a 836 - 964 MHz lumped element band pass filter with capacitively coupled pi resonators

Project (M.S., Electrical and Electronic Engineering)-- California State University, Sacramento, 2010.

With the amount of wireless impact in today’s society, filter design is a very important and integral aspect of modern communication systems. The main purpose of filtering is to improve the signal to noise ratio, SNR, , which describes how much noise has contaminated the original signal. By filtering the noise, the signal to noise ratio is increased, and the signal becomes easier to receive and comprehend. 
 This particular filter, designed and fabricated in this project, is targeted for space communication applications. It will demonstrate optimal performance at temperature extremes and zero pressure environments. The design will also exhibit the highest form of reliability due to its application. The design must be so reliable that it will operate for a minimum of 17 years with the smallest probability of failure; less than 1%.
 The particular kind of filter is a band pass filter, which will be designed using lumped elements using a capacitively coupled pi resonator filter structure. Once the filter is realized and fabricated, the performance of the filter will be evaluated against the specifications it was designed to meet.
