A Classic LNA Design Challenge: Meeting The Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) LNA Specification

This article focuses on a high-volume application: the multi-stage LNA associated with the SDARS radio capability included with millions of new cars every year. It requires a cascade of multiple high-performance amplifiers and filters to meet a very difficult set of requirements.

Overview Of Multi-Channel Signal Generation Applications With R&S SMW200A

The R&S SMW200A is a vector signal generator designed with the ability to simultaneously generate up to eight independent signals from one single instrument for use in complex applications such as MSR, carrier aggregation, MIMO, or other enhanced interference scenarios. 

Clock Skew In Large Multi-GHz Clock Trees

This article identifies several areas of concern in the design process, manufacturing process, and application environment that can cause clock skews of 1 ps or more. With regards to these areas of concern, several recommendations, examples, and rules of thumb will be provided to help the reader gain an intuitive feel for the root cause and magnitude of clock skew errors.

At mmWave Frequencies, Surface Mount Components Are Key To Reducing Cost

Commercial systems are subject to intense price pressure, making both the purchase cost and the implementation cost of a component important factors in selecting devices for a new design. Another key consideration is likely size constraints and the need to preserve valuable board space.
