Corry Micronics’ line of high power RF amplifiers feature up to 40% efficiency, an extended temperature range of -20oC to 55oC for MIL-STD applications, and status monitoring signals that provide diagnostic information.
Electrical engineers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed a new type of circulator that uses a concept called Sequentially-Switched Delay Line (SSDL), which enables the simultaneous use of the same frequency for incoming and outgoing information in a single communications device.
Automobiles rely more and more on a growing number of wireless technologies to communicate with the outside world. Long-term technology goals include vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communications for millions of automobiles as collision-avoidance and other intelligent transportation applications, which can be met using the IEEE 802.11p standard over the 5.9 GHz Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) band. Avoiding interference in these applications requires high-performance RF bandpass filters capable of operating at high frequencies.
Scientists from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) have invented a type of concrete mixture that can shield electronic systems from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). It's a cost-effective alternative to current EMP shielding solutions like metal enclosures.
A limiter PIN diode with a three-layer design can protect a receiver from large input signals while allowing the receiver to function normally when large signals aren’t present. A diode can also be used as an input-power-controlled RF variable resistance to produce attenuation that is a function of the diode characteristics as well as the incident signal amplitude. This application note describes the use of PIN limiter diodes in receiver protectors in detail, as well as their many design characteristics and benefits.
The rapid proliferation of insecure internet-connected devices and systems is threatening critical healthcare, financial, transportation, energy and other infrastructure, to the extent that government and industry should be working together more closely than ever to mitigate risks.
