Designing Adaptive Radio Frequency Filters
ECE Professor Matteo Rinaldi was awarded a patent for designing a “reconfigurable filter based on commutation of single frequency resonators.”
Abstract Source: USPTO
Adaptive RF filters based on modulated resonators are provided. The filter architecture is based on time-interleaved commutation of passive RF resonators. The architecture can behave as a two-port filter network, with a fully tunable instantaneous filter bandwidth. The filters are applicable as miniaturized, environment-aware RF signal processing components and can be used in mobile communications.
