    Radio Telescope Gets Upgrade At Brookhaven Lab

    A radio telescope at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory has received a significant upgrade, advancing from one dish to four. The upgrades are part of the Laboratory’s ongoing effort to test the merits of a radio telescope for a potential future project between national labs and DOE-sponsored universities. The scientists’ ultimate goal is to look deep into the universe and gain a better understanding of periods of accelerated expansion and the nature of dark energy.

    Strategies For Developing Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC

    New RFSoC technologies add RF-class analog to digital and digital to analog data converters to Xilinx’s already powerful MPSoC, ARM processor enhanced family of high-performance FPGAs. The implications of its use changes the way engineers could design and package small, high-channel count systems for 5G, military, and scientific applications. This white paper takes a look at the current trends in data converters and signal processing to better understand the capabilities of RFSoC and how to best use the advantages of the technology.

Key Parameters For Selecting RF Inductors

This article covers key parameters in the selection of RF inductors and what parameters should be considered first in the process.

Lange Couplers And Their Use In RF/Microwave System Design

Lange couplers feature a specific orientation of directional couplers and are used as passive power combiners and RF/microwave splitters. The best-performing designs employ minimized line distance and spacing, along with very tight tolerance control to maximize their advantage.

Fully Polarimetric Analysis of Wireless Connectivity for Smart Home and IoT Applications

This white paper presents a study of wireless connectivity of electronic devices in the Wi-Fi band. For accuracy, the analysis will use the full polarimetric information for each device’s antenna pattern. The study focuses on wireless connectivity between lamps and light switches in an indoor environment, with the goal to set guidelines for spacing between transmitters and receivers: wall-mounted switch boxes and ceiling-mounted lamps, as well as pairs of lamps.

Bringing TEMPEST Receivers Into The Digital Age

In the field of TEMPEST, traditional analysis has focused on analog signal emanations from electronic devices. This paper provides an overview on the digital demodulation basics and delivers an understanding on how to analyze impairments on digitally modulated signals.
