Resonators Fuel High-Performance RF Filters for 5G (.PDF Download)

July 13, 2020

The proliferation of 4G LTE networks, the deployment of new 5G networks, and the pervasive nature of Wi-Fi are driving a dramatic increase in the number of RF bands that smartphones and other mobile devices must support

Filters are constructed by coupling basic building blocks, or resonators, to pass the desired frequency while rejecting interfering frequencies.

So, what is a resonator? Various potential resonating structures are utilized to generate filters for different applications.
