Basics Of Power Measurement — Average Or Peak?
When setting up a test system, it’s critical to know the types of measurements you want to capture in order to select the right equipment. In the world of power measurement, one can easily be confused by the different types of sensors and their varying measurement capabilities. Parsing through some of the terminology can help make the selection process easier.
Consumers expect a high standard of network connectivity. Even though our global data consumption has risen from petabytes (1,0005) per month to exabytes (1,0006) per month, users do not want to experience any issues. While Wi-Fi is used to offload the cellular network, high-demand applications continue to cause strain, and smartphone manufacturers continue to pressure carriers to make network enhancements to offload data traffic.
Escape Dynamics is in the process of developing and testing its new external microwave propulsion technology that permits reusable single-stage-to-orbit space flight.

A broad range of configurations with highly flexible cable assemblies and compact PCB connectors is available.
Filtered Terminal Blocks Corry Micronics offers a full line of standard and custom barrier style filtered terminal blocks. Micronic’s F-36 (#6 screw size) and F-38 (#8 screw size) terminal blocks are rated to 30 and 35 amps respectively, and have become the industry standard for many telecommunications companies.
Modeling Material Properties Based On Measurement
This webinar video presents how to use CST STUDIO SUITE® for a number of techniques for extracting material properties based on the measured S-parameters of simple geometry samples. The video will also discuss the importance of manufacturing technology in the extraction process in relation to the robustness of the specific technique. Important effects such as etch factor, over-etching, over-milling, metallization thickness, and the connection repeatability of low-cost end-launchers will also be addressed in real-world examples.
