Many electronic component manufacturers are now focusing production efforts on high-volume commodity applications. As their specialty component production equipment ages, numerous companies are electing to divest in this type of production.
Wireless communications and radar systems are facing increasing demands on antenna architectures, for example phased array, to improve performance. Many new applications will only be possible with antennas that consume less power in a lower profile than traditional mechanically steered dish antennas.
Crest factor measurements as well as the complementary cumulative distribution function (CCDF) are effective tools that yield important information for accurate signal characterization. Using Boonton peak power sensors and power meters, characterization of noise-like signals can be accurately performed through crest factor measurements and statistical analysis (e.g., CCDF).
Electronic devices are pushing the frequency spectrum higher, necessitating new coaxial connectors to handle the higher frequencies with waveguides often used at the millimeter end of the spectrum. Rohde & Schwarz's new poster summarizes the many size variations required to cover the bands up to 1.7 THz.
Antenna technology is constantly advancing to meet the growing demands of industry. Likewise, Remcom has been keeping pace in order to provide engineers with antenna simulation software that matches their processes and helps them meet their device design requirements.
S1G6C models are Class A, solid-state, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband amplifiers designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required. They protect against input overdrive beyond 0 dBm and various failure conditions, including over-temperature and power supply faults.
50C-064-XX is a wideband directional coupler with SMA female connectors. This model operates 375-6000 MHz and is rated for 50 Watts of RF input power. This model has three ports: Input Port, Output Port, and Coupled Port. Due to its reactive directional design, it couples in one direction only.
