Featured Article
The Rise Of Automotive Grade, AEC-Q100 Clock Generators

As new applications evolve, the number of precision reference clocks needed is steadily increasing, requiring a combination of both single-ended and differential clock formats, of varying frequencies. Skyworks gives systems designers the power to quickly and easily create a customized configuration specific to each design’s unique clock tree through the ClockBuilder Pro software utility.

The Basics Of Military EMC Testing

Although the onus is not on the EMC test engineers and test laboratories to make the decisions on test levels, limits, and requirements, they are still required to identify test specifications and define test procedures, as well as perform the tests. 

Making A Reduced Form Factor, High-Performance Switch Filter Bank A Reality

More components cannot filter unwanted signals in a crowded RF environment. Rather, the ideal solution is a compact, lightweight wideband tuner architecture with the ability to intelligently acquire and filter signals from a wide number of bands. However, developing this component presents quite a few challenges.

Empirically Based Multichannel Phase Noise Model Validated In A 16-Channel Demonstrator

This article details a systematic approach for predicting phase noise in large multichannel systems and compares it with measurements on a 16-channel S-band demonstrator. This analytic approach is based on a small set of measurements that can be used to estimate correlated vs. uncorrelated noise contributions.

Unleashing Lighting Control Options With Bluetooth Mesh

Bluetooth® technology has significantly impacted device connectivity, beginning with wireless speakers and headsets, evolving into wearables, and now introducing more complex smart home implementations. A development kit (DK) for the Qorvo QPG6100 communications controller helps accelerate the design and development of lighting control systems based on Bluetooth mesh, as described in this post.

White Paper: Complex 3D Modeling Of Sea To Land Scenario

This paper presents results from sea to land propagation using Wireless InSite.  The effort explores the effects of various elements in the scene and how they impact the results.  The scene includes the ships out at sea, docked ships, the docks themselves, buildings, and the material properties of each.
