Fabs and Labs: MCV Microwave

In 1995, two Ph.D.’s were inspired to commercialize high Q, low loss dielectric materials, the fruits of research at the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University on Long Island. They formed MCV Microwave, with MCV an acronym for the pillars of the new company: materials, customer centric and vertically integrated.

LC Filters for Aerospace and Defense

For demanding aerospace and defense applications, MCV Microwave offers an extensive line of LC filters in surface-mount, drop-in and “connectorized” packages that withstand rugged environments. LC filter configurations comprise lowpass, highpass, bandpass, band reject, duplexers, multiplexers and tunable filters, with center frequencies from 100 kHz to 10 GHz.

Three Filter Families for Wireless Infrastructure – Ultra-Low PIM and Cavity Filters

MCV Microwave has developed three new filter families for wireless infrastructure. The first is a line of ultra-low passive intermodulation (PIM) cavity filters and multiplexers covering the TETRA and all LTE frequency bands from 300 to 3600 MHz. The typical production PIM performance is −163 dBc, measured with two CW tones, each at 43 dBm. An even lower PIM filter line with a guaranteed −173 dBc is available for PIM test bench and more demanding testing applications.
