usage of HMC892A

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am very interested in your tunable bandpass filter , HMC892A, in software defined radios (SDR).

However, the insertion loss of HMC892A is about 9.5dBdB, which is very high to be used in the RF front-end.

Could you please provide me more information on how to use HMC892A in the SDR RF chain? Where and how can this filter be cascaded in the receivers?

 

Thank you.

 

Best regards,

Ma Yugang
