Microwave SAW bandpass filters for spacecraft applications are described. Two SAW bandpass filters were designed and fabricated in the 1.5 GHz band using temperature-stable ST-cut quartz substrates. The SAW bandpass filters were then assembled in a SAW filter bank. One unique feature of the SAW filter bank is that a broader band is available merely by adding the outputs of SAW bandpass filters adjacent in the frequency domain. Measured electrical responses as well as results of a transmission experiment show satisfactory performance. Effects of the temperature and aging stability characteristics are investigated based on the measured and calculated responses
