LTCC Filters Enhance Differential Circuit Designs

Today’s RF transceiver designs are using differential circuits for more of the signal chain before the ADC and after the DAC. See how Mini-Circuits’ LTCC dual/differential filters and integrated balun-filters provide an ideal solution for anti-aliasing while simplifying implementation and saving board space.
