    Hello evry one there. i have been trying to design a bandpass filter for the 300Mhz-1Ghz frequency range. first i designed one which passes low frequencies like from 65mHz to about 560kHz...thereafter i changed the values of the resistors and capacitors to get my pass band to be close to 300Mhz to 1GHz, but it aint working at all.im doing all this in multisim. since the two cut off frequencies are known, the equations below helped get the resistor and capacitor value. i set one and found the other

    f(lower )= 1/(2*pi*R4*C1)

    f(lower )=300MHz. i set my C1=1pF and it yielded, R4=530 ohms

    f(upper)= 1/(2*pi*R2*C2)

    f(upper )=1GHz. i set my C2=1pF and it yielded, R2=160 ohms....from this it seems the frequencies i want in the pass band are actually 2wards the end of the pass band and strictly the 1GHz is outside..how can i have them well within the pass band and also with a gain >=0 attached is my circuit

    also if u look at the pass band gain it's at -54dB, how can i increase it

    need some advice hea

    What's the upper frequency limit of that OpAmp?

    You need a different op amp. That one is electrometer grade because of the input impedance, but is unity gain characterized only up to 1 MHz.

    Check out the first three returns (at least)


    1 GHz BW capable op amps are a very new phenom just announced in 2009 and only recently widely available. You can expect a long search to find anyone selling them in 1 each quanity

    hello every one there, i noticed i was using the wrong opamp, it's upper frequency limit was way too low. Now i am using an LMH6702. its data sheet says it has a 1.7GHz bandwidth. i want to increase the gain to some value close to 0dB,either slightly above o below. How can i achieve this? please see the attached circuit

    I really appreciate all your help.
