A unique surface-mount duplex filter from Pulse Engineering
eliminates crossover interference by separating upstream signals from downstream
signals. The filter is designed for broadband interactive cable communication
In addition to saving board space, they are said to reduce part
counts of cable modems, set-top boxes, Internet appliances, and other high-speed
cable devices compared to other filter devices. The filters enable two-way
communication between customer premise equipment and the cable network with
minimal crossover interference between downstream broadcast frequency spectrum
and the customer-to-Internet communication band upstream.
