Featured Article
Measuring Multi-Antenna Isolation Using A Multiport VNA

Higher densities of Radio Frequency (RF) transmitter and receiver antennas on many platforms is a result of the expansion of wireless technology. Knowing the actual antenna to antenna isolation allows engineers to assess the filtering requirements in wireless receivers. 

Understanding And Guarding Against Electromagnetic Interference

EMI protection is a fundamental element of system design, but poor prioritization, unexpected sources of interference, or a lack of in-house answers can leave designers stumped for solutions.

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.

eBook Focus On: Tactical Communications - Radios Can't Take Chances

Wireless communication is often taken for granted due to its reliability and effectiveness, but perhaps less so by a soldier whose life may depend upon it. Tactical radios and communications systems must work, and work all the time, even when an enemy may be trying to shut it down with jamming signals and other forms of high-energy electromagnetic (EM) interference. This eBook discusses the importance of radios and other tactical communication systems, and solutions for increasing their performance levels.
