ATEK1001 is a USB-controlled evaluation board for the ATEK MIDAS ATEK950P6, a sub-octave switchable filter bank covering 485–7700 MHz frequency bands. ATEK950P6 6x6 mm QFN-40 ICs will be available for purchase during the campaign alongside the eval board and aluminum enclosure.

ATEK950P6

ATEK950P6 is a switchable sub-octave band-pass filter bank with bypass that covers 485-7700 MHz frequency bands. This filter bank consists of an SP8T switch followed by 7 fixed-frequency band-pass filters which are followed by another SP8T switch. 8th arms of each SP8T switch are used to send the input/output signals to 2 pins. This allows users to bypass the filter bank off-chip. Alternatively, additional off-chip filter or filter banks can be implemented by using the bypass feature.
