Connectivity Q&A: Insights For Better, Faster Wi-Fi Deployments In Asia

Today's Wi-Fi 6, 6E, and soon-to-come 7 provide low latency and a higher data capacity. In this article, Jeff Lin explores today's Wi-Fi standards and features being executed across Asia — assisting engineers to design better and faster wireless connectivity applications.

Selecting Automotive-Grade Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors In Electric Vehicles

The worldwide electric vehicle (EV) market is exploding in mainstream adoption as governments push for fuel economy improvements and automotive companies look for new market opportunities. 

Assessing 5G Radar Altimeter Interference For Realistic Instrument Landing System Approaches

In this whitepaper we use Remcom’s Wireless InSite 3D Wireless Prediction Software to simulate the level of interference received at the radar altimeter input port of a landing aircraft due to emissions from 5G base stations which are in the vicinity of the approach to runway 27L at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. 

Multi-Tone Test Systems Makes RF Radiated Immunity Testing Faster And Versatile

AR’s state-of-the-art multi-tone systems are designed to test RF Radiated and Conducted Immunity faster than ever before. Both the MT2IEC10V3M and MT4IEC10V3M fully comply with IEC 61000-4-3:2020 Edition 4, allowing for multiple tone testing, reducing test time by up to 74%.

What You Should Know About Regulatory Test For Wi-Fi 6E Devices

Wireless connectivity has grown exponentially, causing the IoT market to expand as well. By 2030, the expected number of active IoT devices is predicted to surpass 25.4 billion. Because each country has specific certification/authorization requirements and standards, regulatory testing for Wi-Fi 6E devices is necessary.

Circuit Models For Plastic Packaged Microwave Diodes

This paper reports on the measurement and establishment of circuit models for SOT-23 and SOD-323 packaged diodes. Results indicate that the 1.5 nH estimate for the SOT-23 is a useful result, as is 1.2 nH for SOD-323 single packaged diodes. It was also determined that the effective inductance of the SOT-23 may be reduced to approximately 0.4 nH by adding a second bond wire and modifying the microstrip line. Other lead configurations, including parallel bond wires and common cathode configurations, were also studied.
