This self-contained solid-state amplifier covers the 80 MHz to 1000 MHz frequency range and features lowered distortion and improved stability through the use of push-pull circuitry. When used in conjunction with an RF sweep generator, this amplifier can provide 1000 watts (min) of swept power.
Enhanced Interconnect Medium Simplifies Test & Verification
In high performance embedded systems test application, the requirement for accurate measurement of AC and DC parameter is often critical. During development phase, IC devices are not permanently attached to the target board. Instead IC devices are connected via interconnect medium to the target board.

Next Generation Wireless: Riding On The Back Of Millimeter Waves
Of all the wavelengths in the spectrum used for wireless data transmission, perhaps the least well known is the millimeter wave band. However, it is precisely this band (and the continuous bandwidth it provides) that enables wireless data transmission at speeds and bandwidth that compare to the high quality of fiber optic communication systems.
What’s The Worst That Could Happen? RF Communication Disasters
The morning of December 4, 2011 began normally for the team of Air Force technicians. As they settled into their shift flying unmanned aircraft over Afghanistan, perhaps they chatted casually and swapped stories from the weekend. Very soon, however, their conversations were interrupted by shrill alarm sirens blaring from their control monitors. The video screen on the wall, which normally displayed real-time video imagery from their stealth RQ-170 drone, was now completely black. By Michael Clonts, Product Manager, RT Logic
What You Want To Know About GPS
GPS is a satellite-based radio navigation system developed and operated by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). GPS consists of three segments: space, control, and user. The GPS concept of operation is based upon satellite ranging. Users figure their position on the earth by measuring their distance from the group of satellites in space. The satellites act as precise reference points.
Testing SAASM And Carrier Phase Receivers
The new GSG Series 6 GNSS dual frequency L1/L2 simulator generates both the C/A and P code signals simultaneously for both the GPS and GLONASS navigation systems.
