Software Product: PCfilter

Atlanta RF Software offers RF/microwave CAE software product: PCfilter, which performs Synthesis of the Electrical circuit and Synthesis of the Dimensional circuit of multi-section
Parallel-Edge Coupled Bandpass Filters constructed in stripline or microstrip, and includes the
following product features:

1. Synthesis of multi-section Paralell Edge-Coupled Bandpass Filter designs:
a) Synthesis of Electrical circuit : Zoe & Zoo for each section.
b) Synthesis of the Distributed circuit : Line Widths: W & Strip Spacing: S.
2. Synthesis of various Filter Design Options:
a) Chebyschev or Butterworth frequency response.
b) Construction in Stripline or Microstrip.
c) Prototype Lowpass Circuit Elements included.

3. Frequency Analysis response profile of:
a) Input VSWR and Thru-path Insertion Loss.
b) Higher-order TE11 modes.

4. Default values for each User-entered input data.

5. Output Data stored on your hard drive for graphical plots.

      Software product: PCfilter provides the User with full design capability, from Synthesis to Frequency Analysis of Parallel Edge-Coupled Bandpass Filters and their Distributed form, when constructed in stripline or microstrip.
