Arqiva, a UK based communications infrastructure and media services company, has been working on a number of projects to expand the UK nationwide DAB network. Since these projects demanded a smart and cost effective solution for distributing critical L-band satellite signals at multiple UK transmitting stations, Ariqiva chose ETL Systems to construct compact products to meet their requirements. This case study discusses how Arqiva relied on ETL Systems to help increase local DAB coverage so that millions of customers can receive their favorite radio stations digitally.
A study shows that more than 75 percent of microwave/RF cable assembly users replace their cable assemblies frequently. The only way to ensure reliability is to select a cable assembly that has been tested to survive in real-world conditions. This white paper presents information on what kinds of cable assemblies are good for signal integrity, long-term durability and performance, and a lower lifetime cost.
This paper examines USSOCOM's emerging requirements for new and updated submersible equipment, with a focus on the factors that qualify such equipment for operation in combat environments. Specifically, it addresses the components most often considered the weakest link – namely, electrical cable connectors. Typically, significant changes in military equipment requirements such as this spawn innovation in the private sector. So the paper concludes by reviewing the types of equipment for which the 20-meter submersible capability may soon become standard.
IQC91000A Wideband Signal Record and Playback System
X-COM Systems IQC91000A Series, Signal Record and Playback System is designed for the next generation of defense electronic systems that occupy large information bandwidths. Performance validation of these designs requires extensive testing on the bench, in the chamber and on the range to ensure system readiness prior to deployment.

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.
