The Pico Macom BPF is an extremely cost and space effective professional grade single-channel bandpass filter. The BPF was designed to provide an additional level of bandpass filtering when used in conjunction with Pico Macom’s XBS series of single channel amplifiers, especially in applications where undesired adjacent channels are present. The high out-of-band signal rejection eliminates cross modulation and overload distortion caused by strong adjacent carriers entering an amplifier. Unwanted images caused by dual amplifier processing of the same signal are also eliminated thereby further reducing distortions and improving picture quality. Four front panel tunable Hi-Q traps allow easy selection and suppression of adjacent carriers. The BPF is useful also in eliminating unwanted conversion products resulting from strong local signals entering the Pico Macom XUV channel converter thereby achieving cost effective drop in expansion. Pico Macom backs up this product with its industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
