Filter Shape Factor And Selectivity
By Knowles Precision Devices DLI

This article discusses how a real-world filter’s deviation from ideal behavior needs to be quantified and that shape factor and selectivity are tools to use in this process. It touches on how both resonator Q and the filter order (number of resonators in a design) can influence a filters behavior in the transition band.

3 Tactics For Configuring Phase-Coherent RF Signal Generation
White Paper | Keysight Technologies

As the number of higher throughput applications grows sharply, there is a need for wider bandwidth and network coverage in wireless systems. However, given limited spectrum allocation, strategies must be found to improve spectral efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Multi-antenna techniques, such as Multi-input Multioutput (MIMO) and beamforming, can help achieve diversity, multiplexing, and antenna gain in order to improve spectral efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). This white paper will help the reader understand phase coherence and why it matters, and offer tactics for generating phase-coherent signals.
