Transient EM/Circuit Co-Simulation In XFdtd: A Closer Look At TVS Diodes For ESD Protection

This paper introduces XFdtd’s transient EM/circuit co-simulation capability, which combines the strength of 3-D full-wave electromagnetic simulation with the flexibility of circuit solvers.

ADI’s RF Front-End Family Enables Compact 5G Massive MIMO Network Radios

In the quest for higher data rates to support a variety of wireless services and different transmission schemes, system designers face higher circuit complexity but must meet similar budgets for size, power, and cost. 

The Future Of Satellite Communication Design: Four RF Technology Trends You Need to Know

This article explores four RF design trends that Knowles Capacitors identified based on 40-years of expertise in the RF industry that are helping Satcom design engineers meet the demands of the many industries relying on their devices today.

Ceramic Feedthrough Filters: Winning The Finite EMI Fight

EMI is a serious concern for devices that are externally powered or require signal wires that extend outside the device. The wires that connect to power sources, or I/O points, can act as antennas that will allow EMI to be received and enter the device, causing it to perform improperly. 

SOSA And VITA: Working Together For Next-Gen Defense Systems

The Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Consortium is developing common open standards for designing, building, and deploying hardware, software, and firmware components of new military electronic systems. Because the emerging SOSA hardware standard draws primarily from OpenVPX and other related VITA standards, the new technologies, topologies, and environmental requirements critical to meeting SOSA objectives must be supported by extensions to these VITA standards. This article is an overview of the SOSA and VITA organizations and how they interact, along with the challenges, successful strategies, and illustrative examples.

Revolutionizing Radar Design With Electronically Reconfigurable GaN Power Amplifiers

This article demonstrates for the first time a robust commercially available high power amplifier based on multi-band transmitter design using a patented reconfigurable PA technique demonstrated by Charles Campbell.

Extended Resolution Bandwidths For Ultrawideband (UWB) Measurements

Ultrawideband (UWB) technology has a growing number of applications in communication technology, radar sensors, or IoT equipment, among many others, all using an extremely high bandwidth of 500 MHz or more. The ETSI standard requires in-band testing for product certification with a resolution bandwidth of 50 MHz for these UWB products. This application note explains technical reasons for the bandwidth limitation and presents solutions for regulative UWB testing using the R&S®ESW. 

Getting To The Source: Integrated Circuits (ICS) & Component EMC Testing

Throughout product development, EMC and other compliance testing is usually last on the list. During the component selection process, we need to select components that have been through and EMI/EMC testing program, getting to the source before problems arise. This presentation will explore EMC testing components.
