|20130222081||ANTENNA FEED WITH POLARIZATION ROTATION - Various exemplary embodiments relate to an antenna feed configured to receive a signal having a wavelength. They antenna feed may include a cylindrical body and four pin groups. Each pin group may include two pins in close proximity extending across the center of the cylindrical body. One of the two pins may be rotated approximately 22.5° from the angle of the other pin. Each pin group may be spaced approximately one quarter of a wavelength away from each other, and may be rotated approximately 22.5° from the angle of the previous pin group.||08-29-2013|
|20130222080||NON-RESONANT NODE FILTER - Various exemplary embodiments relate to a filter configured to operate in an operational frequency range. The filter may include a mainline, at least one combline resonator coupled to the mainline, an input port coupled to the mainline, and an output port coupled to the mainline. The mainline may include at least one non-resonant node. The at least one non-resonant node may be configured to resonate in a frequency range outside of the operational frequency range of the filter, and the at least one combline resonator may be configured to resonate in a frequency range within the operational frequency range of the filter.||08-29-2013|
|20120264486||DC PASS FILTER USING FLAT INDUCTOR IN CAVITY - Various embodiments relate to a base station element and related method of suppressing an alternating-current (AC) portion of a signal. A base station element includes a filter capable of lightning suppression through the use of an LC filter that suppresses an AC portion of a received signal while passing a DC portion of the signal. The LC filter includes a flat inductor disposed in a cavity of the base station. The flat inductor may be connected to other electrical components disposed in the cavity of the base station to complete the electrical circuit. In some embodiments, the flat inductor may be produced from one material through photo-etching and may also include snap in or snap on connectors on one or both ends to enable galvanic contact with other components like a tap pin or a printed circuit board (PCB) without requiring attachment through soldering.||10-18-2012|
|20120249267||RADIO FREQUENCY FILTER STABILIZATION - An assembly and method relates to stabilizing a radio frequency (RF) filter with respect to a housing. The assembly can include a filter component; a housing having a groove to receive the filter component; a cover mounted to the housing to cover the groove; and an elastomeric element disposed between the cover and the filter. The elastomeric element may be one or more tubular pieces.||10-04-2012|
|20120249263||SAME-BAND COMBINER USING DUAL-BANDPASS CHANNEL FILTERS - Various embodiments relate to an apparatus and related method for transmission and reception of a plurality of a carrier signals comprising one or more dual-band channels through a same-band combiner. A device such as a base station may include a same-band combiner that comprises a plurality of dual-bandpass filters and a combining element to transmit and receive the carrier signal. Each of the dual-bandpass filters may transmit and receive a channel, with each dual-bandpass filter including separate reception and transmission passbands for the separate frequencies in the dual-band channel. The combining element may separate and combine the one or more dual-band channels, with each of the dual-bandpass filters connected in parallel processing separate dual-band channels.||10-04-2012|
|20120235770||CAVITY FILTER THERMAL DISSIPATION - A cavity filter has a resonator. The resonator is engaged by a rod having a mounting portion and a thermal dissipation portion. The mounting portion of the rod extends through the floor of the cavity filter to engage an internal surface of the resonator. The thermal dissipation portion dissipates heat from the resonator to the outside of the cavity filter.||09-20-2012|
|20110032854||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR TDD/TMA WITH HYBRID BYPASS SWITCH OF RECEIVING AMPLIFIER - An arrangement of hybrid couplers, selectively removing RF amplifiers from a receiving path from an antenna back to a receiver in response to an event, the event switching impedances of switchable impedances connecting to ports of the hybrid couplers, between a matching impedance and mismatching impedance. The matching and mismatching impedances change coupling characteristics of the hybrid couplers between a normal coupling and a bypass coupling. In the normal coupling the hybrid couplers provide port-to-port coupling placing the RF amplifiers within the receiving path and, in the bypass coupling, the hybrid couplers provide port-to-port coupling bypassing the RF amplifiers. Optionally, transmitted signal power is detected to identify transmit and receiving intervals. During detected transmit intervals, isolation switches isolate the RF amplifiers from the feedback path and, during receiving intervals and, during detected receiving intervals, the isolation switches RF amplifiers into the feedback path to amplify reception signals. Optionally a hybrid coupler switch is placed between the two circulators to increase the isolation in the RX mode reducing feedback to the LNA's.||02-10-2011|
|20100188174||COMPACT TUNABLE DUAL BAND STOP FILTER - Various exemplary embodiments include a technique for tuning a filter to have two stop bands. This technique may involve combination of signals from a plurality of high-band notch resonators and low-band notch resonators. Loop wires may couple both high-band and low-band notch resonators to a central conductor, thereby enabling the central conductor to transmit a signal having dual stop bands.||07-29-2010|
|20100127801||LOW PASS FILTER WITH EMBEDDED RESONATOR - An embedded resonator sharpens the frequency characteristics of a coaxial low pass filter. The resonator introduces finite transmission zeros to the response of the low pass filter, thereby suppressing spurious modes occurring just above the operating frequency. Two parameters are used to tune the operation of the embedded resonator. The length of an insert into the filter's transmission line substantially controls the resonant frequency, and the gap width substantially controls the coupling of the embedded resonator to the low pass filter.||05-27-2010|
