Surface-Mount PIN Diodes
Surface-Mount PIN Diodes
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. has introduced new PIN diodes in an industry standard 0402 packaging technology for handset, WLAN, CATV Satcom, land mobile radios, infrastructure, T/R and switching applications. These new PIN diodes provide designers with a small form factor, low-profile and low inductance, all in a plastic surface mount technology (SMT) package. Additional benefits include low capacitance, resistance and thermal impedance.

  • Multi-Tone Testing, Theory And Practice
    Multi-Tone Testing, Theory And Practice

    Multi-tone signals are composed of multiple single sine waves or tones with unique amplitudes, phases, and frequencies. Originally, multi-tone testing was implemented to increase the speed of immunity testing, but it also improves equipment efficiency, higher flexibility, and is fully compliant to standards. Multi-tones are also used in measuring modern audio levels in consumers and professional audio devices, broadband devices, and in internet audio. This application note further discusses multi-tone testing, the theory of the science behind it, and how to put it into practice.

  • DARPA Developing Smaller VLF Antennas

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) says its scientists are looking to downsize existing antennas that handle very low frequency (VLF) signals in an effort to improve long-distance wireless communications.

  • New Study Latest To Link Cell Phone Use To Cardiac, Brain Cancer

    A new animal study linking cancer and devices that emit non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR) has cast a shadow over the rollout of faster, next-generation 5G mobile network technology in the United States.

  • Liquid Metals Make Fully Flexible Electronics A Reality

    Researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia have found out how to manipulate liquid metals bathed in water so that they create different electronic circuits. The development paves the way for malleable electronic circuits.

  • What Is SHaaS? And Why Should You Care?

    Comcast released the results of a survey from earlier this year providing valuable insights into why consumers are interested in smart home services, what features are most desired, and how they plan to use smart home technologies. The biggest find of the survey is that consumers are more interested in a smart home as a service (SHaaS) over connected devices that remotely control devices in the home. This application note discusses SHaaS, its components, and how it works.
