The assembled prototype. Picture shows a lowpass.

✈ Motivation • Background

Sometimes the stocked Mini Circuits Lowpass / Highpass Filters do not meet the specificatins of our lab mice. It is then suiteable to have the components ready to hack together a lowpass (highpass) in no time. For this we designed a board which can hold any 9-pole (or less) filter type using the inductors (size 1030, 1050) of the Würth SMD WE-PD series Power Choke Coils. They are advertised for power supplies, but their shielding make them a good choice for filters, too. Capacitors can be used of size 0603, 0805 and 1206. Use NP0.

This project is not sponsored by Würth Electronics or Mouser, but we are a fan of their kit. Mouser order number is 710-7447713, 1.5 uH to 1 mH.

✈ Step 1 : Design

For the design you mayst want to use any calculator of your choice. We used RFSim99 which is a superb tool by Stewart Hyde. Calculate your filter and tweak the values to meet standard inductor / capacitor values.

✈ Step 2 : Assembly

The assembly is easy and can be done in a few minutes. Keep in mind, that you solder the capacitors first, as access to the soldering pads becomes challenging when the inductors are placed first.

✈ Step 3 : Verify the result

As no device will leave the lab without proper testing, we verified the frequency response with our hp8753E network analyzer.

It can be seen, that the output stays down to more than 500 MHz. This speaks for the inductors by Wüth Electronics.
