RF And MW Control Products In Silicon

There are inherent advantages of silicon technology are benefits of Analog Devices’ new RF and microwave (MW) switch and attenuator products implemented in advanced silicon process, when compared to legacy counterparts using gallium-arsenide (GaAs). This paper provides highlights on features and key performance parameters of the new switch and attenuator products. 

Managing High-Temperature Electronics Environments Down To The Component Level

As complex electronic systems become more prevalent in our daily lives, the demand for high-temperature, high-reliability components continues to increase. To meet the brief, material and design of these high-temperature components must deviate from today’s standard.

Fundamentals Of Radome And Bumper Measurements Using The R&S®QAR

Radome testing is a necessity, checking sensor components for radar compatibility. Previously, there were two methods used for testing. R&S introduces the R&S®QAR as another solution.
