The name “Internet of Things” (IoT) can be misleading in that it does not actually refer to a specific group of things. It really isn’t a new concept either, rather a maturing technology that is making its way into the mainstream eye. Just like every other universally connected device, it operates over our regular internet with familiar applications in wearables and the smart home. So what is the real value of IoT? This white paper provides information on what the IoT has to offer now and in the future, and what defines its true value.
This two-part article will provide product designers with the information they need to develop quality Bluetooth low energy products, starting with an understanding of the standard.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology is growing to be the essential technology of choice in applications ranging from space and military systems to consumer electronics. As the technology in GaN devices matures, the long-term reliability issues must be tested and addressed. Test system capabilities must expand to perform not only traditional elevated temperature life testing, but must also allow for in-situ performance-degradation characterization with age. Accel-RF’s platform solution is the only available integrated instrument that can demonstrate a compliance with aerospace, government, and commercial RF semiconductor life-test standards with all desired capabilities.
The use of measuring devices to monitor and control processes is a critical component for the smooth operation of large systems, and is an integral part to the future of the Internet of Things. The concept of integrating things into interconnect solutions requires knowing the application and environment in order to create the most successful product. This white paper presents seven essential considerations to keep in mind for engineering rugged connector solutions for the Internet of Things.
The next step in the development of a passive monopulse direction finder is the development of a multi-beam monopulse radar for Airborne Based Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) systems. This concept consists of a multi-beam monopulse radar with an array of directional antennas to be positioned on a small aircraft or Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). The radar signals are then simultaneously transmitted and received by multiple angle shifted directional antennas with overlapping antenna patterns covering 360° for both horizontal and vertical coverage. This white paper presents in-depth information on the concept of a multi-beam monopulse radar, state-of-the-art Ground and Airborne Based Sense and Avoid Systems, and much more.
EMI Filters are used to prevent electromagnetic interference in avionics and aircraft systems, as well as military shipboard/vehicle electronics, and in military communication systems. Electromagnetic interference can cause a complete loss of data in communications systems, or a simple decline in data quality.
CombiTest is designed to support the full test and measurement capabilities of the MT8860B and MT8860C WLAN Test Set. Consequently, test plans can be created for use in both “Network” and “Direct” modes of operation.
Dielectric Labs Inc. (DLI) introduces a series of surface mount directional couplers designed to offer a turnkey surface mount solution for high frequency incident and reflected power monitoring. These directional couplers span the C, X, and Ku band frequency spectrums, and are available with 10dB and 20dB coupling values, and a common footprint for maximum flexibility.
