Abstract
In designing broadcast satellite transponders, it is required for the filters handling high-power RF signals to have not only low-loss characteristics but also good thermal stability. In order to realize such filter performance, we proposed a 6-pole canonical TE113 dual-mode filter which is formed of silver-plated Super Invar cavities with copper iris plates. The insertion loss and thermal stability of the experimental filter were 0.3dB and 1.5ppm/C, respectively. Also, no significant deteriora-tion on the filter performance was observed even at the RF input power of around 400W. AS a result, it was found that this type of filter was most suitable for the high-power satellite transponders in view of insertion loss, thermal design, volume and weight.
