TTE Introduces Bias Tees at Microwave Symposium (IMS2015)

High Frequency, High Current and Standard Designs – to 40 GHz – for Signal Processing Applications


TTE will introduce a new line of Bias Tees at IMS2015. The line includes three series:

  • BTHF – high frequency series for 10 MHz to 40 GHz
  • BTHC – high current series for 500 MHz to 4 GHz and current handling to 7 A DC
  • BTS – standard series for 10 MHz to 18 GHz

All three series provide very low insertion loss, minimal return loss, desirable VSWR characteristics and extremely flat gain response over the series-specific frequency ranges. The products are manufactured using high-quality components and processes to deliver superior broadband performance. A summary data table is provided below. RoHS-compliant parts are available upon request.

Please refer to series datasheets for the most up to date information in case any data has changed since the news release issued.

TTE LC9S Lowpass Stock Filters

TTE Introduces Stock Filters for Immediate Shipment – LC9S Series

The Lowpass Chebyshev LC9S Passive Filter Series Addresses the Need for Off-The-Shelf Convenience

TTE has been manufacturing filters in the USA since 1956 and has particular expertise in short lead times.  Expedited lead time as short as 3-5 days is available on many built-to-order filter designs.  TTE’s new LC9S is a high quality filter series offered from inventory with competitive pricing and same day shipment.  This series addresses the market need of customers requiring immediate delivery – when 3 to 5 days is not fast enough.

The 9-pole filters in the LC9S Series deliver fast roll-off, an insertion loss of 1.0dB maximum and 50 Ohm terminations.  Nine part numbers are available, each at a specific -1dBc passband frequency, from 30 MHz to 3 GHz.
