STEDI - project completed

SIAE MICROELETTRONICA in partnership with RF Microtech completed the ESA “STEDI project”.

Aim of the project STEDI (‘Small user TErminal Diplexers’) is the development, manufacturing, test and comparison of different technology concepts for user terminal Ku-/Ka-band dplxs using novel technologies, aiming at large-scale fabrication of RF compact filters compatible with planar and monolithic circuits.

Particular importance is devoted to three technologies: micromachining (MM), LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic) and SIW (Substrate Integrated Waveguide) on planar substrates (either in PCB or alumina technology), which have recently demonstrated their potentialities in terms of moderate and high unloaded Q-factor (Q), compactness and cost-effective solutions up to frequencies 30÷50 GHz.

The consortium is composed by RF Microtech (Italy), the prime contractor, and SIAE Microelettronica (Italy), as partner.
