GaN Gives Power and Flexibility to L-Band Radar
Radar sales are on the rise, increasing the production of air traffic control radar systems, and resulting in the intensified research and development on improving the performance of the L-band, which requires high pulsed power. High-power RF transistors need to be employed and GaN offers the solution. GaN is the leading semiconductor technology used in the construction of RF power transistors, enabling breakthroughs in power output capacity, temperature tolerance and efficiency.
Mobile medical devices in today’s world require constant connectivity and security for the safety of its patients as well as for efficiency in the hospital. When considering such necessities, medical device companies need to understand that there are unique requirements to ensure the success of their WLAN deployed solution within a hospital environment. If any of these requirements are overlooked, there may be results of poor performance and potential regulator recalls.
When it comes to electronics, it is important to keep the complete design cycle shorter than traditional manufacturing, as delays in product release can severely affect profit. In electronic equipment, overheating causes electronic semiconductor chips to prematurely fail, and end up disabling the entire equipment. Appropriate cooling strategies are needed to prevent overheating and failure of critical components. Mechanical engineers have collaborated with electronic designers to incorporate electronic design automation (EDA) software and mechanical design automation (MDA) software into the thermal design of electronics.
UAVs became a common part of many people’s vernacular due to their sudden surge in use for military related applications, though in those cases, they’re typically referred to as drones. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles have numerous potential civilian applications as well though – from agricultural, forestry, and maritime studies, to border security and law enforcement use. This article discusses the growing diversity of markets for UAVs and both the challenges and opportunities they provide.
A recent study conducted for the aerospace industry showed that 29 percent of respondents said the cause of Microwave/RF cable failure or repair is due to damage during installation. Damaged airframe microwave assemblies result in system failures, re-testing, delayed production, increased maintenance downtime, and eventual replacement of the entire setup.
