Choosing RF Switches For High-Power Applications
Article | By Jeffrey Gibala, Corry Micronics, Inc.

There are several types of switches for radio frequency applications to choose from. Picking the right switch is a question of figuring out what speed, power levels, and lifetime you need. 

Spectral Efficiency And Filter Temperature Stability
Article | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

This article discusses the use of the Shannon-Hartley Theorem in the context of 5G mmWave applications and how it may be used to find the number of bits/second expected in each section of bandwidth. This, in turn, relates to spectral efficiency and filter temperature stability.
