In part 1 of this two-part guide, we talked about the trade-offs you need to make when selecting the type of capacitor that will be the best fit for your application and the basics of trimmer capacitor design including dielectric material options. This second post focuses more on the details of trimmer capacitor specs and how to determine what's right for your application.
Gallium nitride is the undisputed technology for achieving high-efficiency operation in high-frequency applications, such as those at X-band (8–12 GHz). And GaN on SiC devices can deliver the much-needed high temperature reliability and power density for these applications due to unbeatable thermal conductivity of the materials as well as a lattice match between them.
Software-defined radios are one of the leading topics in the industry today. The software-defined radio’s performance capability has been fueled by the release of radio frequency (RF) transceivers offering complete radio solutions in monolithic integrated circuits (ICs).
The following suggestions for working component costs into your Wi-Fi design budget can help keep teams aligned and prevent costly, and frustrating, redesigns. This checklist applies to any size project and is designed for both first-time planners, as well as more experienced project managers.
