What Really Matters? ESD Specifications For Smartphone Antenna Tuners

Antenna tuners in smartphones, like other electronic components, must be able to withstand electrostatic discharge (ESD) at every stage from device manufacturing and smartphone assembly to consumer use. However, confusion exists about the level of ESD protection required at each stage. 

Clock Skew In Large Multi-GHz Clock Trees

This article identifies several areas of concern in the design process, manufacturing process, and application environment that can cause clock skews of 1 ps or more. With regards to these areas of concern, several recommendations, examples, and rules of thumb will be provided to help the reader gain an intuitive feel for the root cause and magnitude of clock skew errors.

How To Speak Radar: Basic Fundamentals And Applications

The evolution of radar has grown steadily over the decades to its present level that employs sophisticated computerized techniques which has stimulated the development of increasingly complex components. This white paper provides a basic introduction to radar technologies and to the application of radar equipment.

Inexpensive Scalar Measurement Of A Band Pass Filter Or Other Passive Component

See the attenuation curve of a typical band pass filter measured using this test setup. This test setup may be used to measure other passive devices such a band reject, high pass, low pass, and stop band filters as well as fixed attenuators, pads, step attenuators, insertion loss of cable assemblies, etc.
