Dielectric Laboratories (DLI) offers a series of single layer capacitors designed with Class II dielectric materials and X7R temperature stability characteristics for a variety of DC blocking or RF bypass applications. With operation capabilities over a broad frequency range, these high frequency, wire bondable capacitors are ideal for GaN, GaAs, filtering, tuning, and coupling applications where small size and microwave performance is vital for a circuit’s performance.
Antenna aperture tuning is essential to enable smartphones to operate efficiently over the ever-increasing range of RF frequency bands and support the transition to 5G. Smartphones need more antennas to support growing RF requirements such as new 5G bands, MIMO, and carrier aggregation (CA), but there is less space for these antennas due to changes in smartphone industrial design. As a result, antennas are becoming smaller, potentially reducing antenna efficiency and bandwidth. Aperture tuning compensates for this problem by allowing antennas to be tuned to operate efficiently on multiple bands and increasing Tx and Rx performance by 3 dB or more.
Those who produce IC products for demanding electromagnetic environments must take precautionary measures to test and pass all regulatory EMI and safety requirements. This white paper explores these standards and safety requirements and offers guidance for ensuring that IC products meet them.
