Passive Electrical Filters from Thralls are feedthrough BNC filters that filter unwanted signals and noise with a guaranteed minimum rejection of 40 dB. These high-pass filters are made to be powered by a low-impedance source and terminated into high-impedance gear. Thralls' amplified photodetectors are examples of standard 50 (low-impedance) sources, while 1 M oscilloscope terminals, DAQ boards, and 100 k op-amp inputs are examples of high-impedance devices. Our high-pass electrical filters can be found on this list. Low-pass and DC block electrical filters are also available from Thralls
Since these are passive filters, no power supply is needed to operate them. Furthermore, they may not show any of the intermodulation distortions that are typically seen when active filters are used. Passive filters have lower noise floors and lower thermal emission than active filters, allowing them to have better signal-to-noise ratios. The part number, passband range, input/output impedance values, and a frequency response curve are all etched on each filter. Elliptic Filters with a High Order
Our 5th and 6th order high-pass filters are designed as high-order elliptic filters to ensure excellent suppression of frequencies in the stopband region, providing excellent attenuation of low frequency components. More information such as the 3 dB, 30 dB, and 40 dB stopband frequencies, can be found in the tables below. As compared to most other passive filters, elliptic filters, also known as Cauer filters, show some of the steepest signal attenuations before the passband (see the frequency response tables below). This property makes these filters suitable for applications requiring substantial attenuation of stopband frequencies near the passband. Designs for in-line and coaxial packages provides BNC feedthrough filters in both in-line and coaxial configurations (see Figures 1 and 2 to the right). The in-line EF100 series filters have a box configuration with two female BNC connectors. The in-line design is intended to link two BNC cables in a straight line. The EF500 series filters have a cylindrical shape with a male and female BNC connector and are coaxial. This enables the filter to be linked directly to a system like an oscilloscope (see image above). It is not recommended that in-line filters be connected directly to a measurement system due to their larger scale. The inverse relationship between the filter frequency and the size of the internal electrical components within the housing allows in-line filters to be larger than coaxial filters.
Filtering methods Most RF and microwave filters are composed of one or more coupled resonators, so any technology that can produce resonators can also produce filters. The selectivity of the filter will be determined by the unloaded efficiency factor of the resonators used. The book by Matthaei, Young, and Jones  is a good guide for RF and microwave filter design and implementation. In a microwave filter, generalised filter theory deals with resonant frequencies and coupling coefficients of coupled resonators.
Filters that are coaxial Coaxial transmission lines have a higher quality factor than planar transmission lines, so they're used when more output is needed. To minimise the overall size of the coaxial resonators, high-dielectric constant materials can be used.
LC filters with clumped components An LC tank circuit, which consists of parallel or series inductors and capacitors, is the most basic resonator structure that can be used in rf and microwave filters. These have the advantage of being very lightweight, but the resonators' low quality factor results in poor efficiency. Both the upper and lower frequency ranges are protected by Lumped-Element LC filters. The size of the inductors used in the tank circuit becomes prohibitively large as the frequency drops into the low kHz to Hz range. To address this problem, crystals are frequently used in the design of very low frequency filters. The inductors in the tank circuit become too small to be practical as the frequency increases into the 600 MHz and higher range. Since the electrical reactance of an inductor of a given inductance increases linearly with frequency, at higher frequencies, a prohibitively low inductance can be needed to achieve the same reactance.
Filters with a planar shape Article in its entirety: Filter with distributed components. Planar transmission lines, such as microstrip, coplanar waveguide, and stripline, can also be used as resonators and filters, and have a better size-to-performance ratio than lumped element filters. [requires citation] The production processes for microstrip circuits are somewhat close to those for printed circuit boards, except these filters have the advantage of being predominantly planar. A thin-film process is used to produce precision planar filters. The use of low loss tangent dielectric materials for the substrate, such as quartz or sapphire, and lower resistance metals, such as gold, can result in higher Q factors.
Filters with a cavity Well-built cavity filters are capable of high selectivity even under power loads of at least a megawatt, and are still commonly used in the 40 MHz to 960 MHz frequency range. [three] The internal volume of the filter cavities can be increased to achieve a higher Q quality factor and increased output reliability at closely spaced (down to 75 kHz) frequencies. Traditional cavity filters vary in physical length from over 205 cm in the 40 MHz range to under 27.5 cm in the 900 MHz range. Cavity filters become more practical in the microwave range (1000 MHz and up) in terms of size and a substantially higher quality factor than lumped element resonators and filters.

Resonators may also be constructed from pucks made of different dielectric materials. High-dielectric constant materials, including coaxial resonators, can be used to reduce the total size of the filter. Low-loss dielectric materials can provide substantially better performance than the other technologies discussed previously.
Filters for electroacoustic
Filters can be made with electroacoustic resonators made of piezoelectric materials. Electroacoustic resonators are usually smaller in size and weight than electromagnetic equivalents such as cavity resonators since the acoustic wavelength at a given frequency is many orders of magnitude shorter than the electrical wavelength. The quartz resonator, which is basically a cut of a piezoelectric quartz crystal clamped by a pair of electrodes, is a typical example of an electroacoustic resonator. The frequency range of this technology is in the tens of megahertz. Most microwave filters use thin film technologies such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) and thin-film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR, TFBAR) based structures for frequencies greater than 100 MHz.
