A key attribute that sets Holzworth Phase Noise Analyzers apart from the competition is the capability for measuring the absolute phase noise floor of each instrument. This very valuable information is critical because like spectrum analyzers, no two-phase noise analyzers are identical even if they are of the same make and model number.
In this new Filter Basics Series, we are taking a step back to cover some background information on how filters do what they do. Regardless of the technology behind the filter, there are several key concepts that all filters share that we will dive into throughout this series. Part 5 dives into more detail on lumped element and distributed element filter construction techniques and when each option is most appropriate to use based on your application.
Whether you’re working with coaxial cables or PCB traces, long interconnects need impedance matching to ensure power transfer and prevent reflection. Most impedance matching guidelines do not explicitly mention the input impedance of an interconnect, which will determine the S-parameters (specifically return loss).
The technology in today’s world continues to move higher in frequency to solve problems and improve performance. It is these millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies that offer hope in solving the toughest requirements in many industries such as communications and defense.
We talked with Skyworks on the second day at IMS 2022 about why radio synchronization is important. David and Tim showcase a few of Skyworks’ products that help support this process, including the industry’s first 5G, small-cell reference designs.
Learn how Remcom’s WaveFarer Radar Simulation Software uses ray-tracing to simulate virtual drive scenarios and predict radar returns as a system moves through an environment with vehicles, roadway structures, pedestrians, and other objects.
The Model 6000SP1z2G1z4 is a self-contained, forced-air-cooled, broadband solid-state microwave amplifier designed for pulse applications at low duty factors where instantaneous bandwidth and high gain are required.
The 50PA-1197 from JFW is a 50 Ohm benchtop attenuator assembly that contains 24 solid-state step attenuators. The attenuators can be controlled manually with the keypad or remotely via Ethernet or Serial connection.
The R&S RTP high-performance oscilloscope combines high-class signal integrity with a fast acquisition rate. Customized frontend ASIC and real-time processing hardware enable highly accurate measurements with unprecedented speed in a compact form factor.
