The increasing demand for higher data rates in telecommunications and higher resolution in industrial systems is pushing the frequency of operation higher for the electronics that support them. Many of these systems operate over a wide frequency spectrum and further increased bandwidth requirements are a common request for new designs.
This application note explores a number of testing requirements for telecommunication devices and how to benefit from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation’s products. The paper will cover two broad categories of device testing – characterization and reliability – within mid to high power systems.

In general, there are two classes of capacitors, Class-X and Class-Y, that are both used to minimize electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) in different applications.
Remcom’s XFdtd empowers ESD engineers to simulate TVS diodes and finalize protection circuitry for their products in the early stages of design. This improves product reliability and lowers cost by reducing the design engineering cycle time. In this webinar, learn how XFdtd's transient EM/circuit co-simulation effectively resolves ESD vulnerabilities earlier in the design process and prevents future certification setbacks.
The R&S NRPxxS/SN family of three-path USB and LAN diode power sensors combine accurate and uncomplicated power measurements as well as simple operation on a base unit or a laptop/PC. They are ideal for use in production, R&D, and calibration labs, as well as for installation and maintenance tasks.
Skyworks offers the ATN3590 series of fixed resistive attenuators designed as integrated circuits comprising thin film resistors and through-die vias that provide excellent attenuation flatness from low frequency to 40 GHz or higher.
With a tremendous increase in the number of connected devices and mobile data demand predicted over the next decade, the wireless communications industry is exploring new technologies to accommodate 5G wireless data systems, including MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) technology and millimeter wave frequency bands.
The ADMV8913 is a fully monolithic microwave integrated circuit that that features a digitally selectable frequency of operation. The device has an integrated high-pass filter and an integrated low-pass filter, that allow a pass-band response within the 7 to 12 GHz frequency range.
