Conducted Immunity Test Method

The foundation for consistent and meaningful conducted immunity testing comes from defining the appropriate combination of amplification, injection device, and test set-up. RF conducted immunity (CI) is the test method and standard that substitutes for radiated immunity (RI) testing at lower frequencies.

Radiation Immunity Of Skyworks Optocouplers

Neutron irradiation at two different neutron fluence levels were performed on our integrated detector optocouplers, OLI300, 400, and 5OO. The results of the test showed that these types of optocouplers are tolerant to high radiation levels and are suitable for applications in high radiation environments.

EM Simulation Of 140 GHz Antenna Array For 6G Wireless Communication

In this example, a 140 GHz slot antenna array excited by a substrate integrated cavity is demonstrated for use in wireless communications.

Simplifying 5G Radio Design With A New Range Of 28 GHz Bandpass Filters

As 5G innovation forges on, radio systems continue to emerge. Each system has a range of requirements, including specific RF filter performance needs, and it’s up to the 5G FR2 Ecosystem of suppliers to meet that demand. In response, Knowles Precision Devices (KPD) supports a wide variety of 5G radio applications.
