Amazon's New Smartphone Boasts High-End RF Components By Clinton Shaffer
On July 25, Amazon released its first smartphone, and it didn’t take long for the internal components of the device to get leaked. While the fiscal success of the new smartphone is to be determined, a recent teardown and analysis of Amazon’s Fire phone attests to its high-end industrial design.
How To Measure Additive Phase Noise Of Amplifiers By Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation
Additive (or residual) phase noise comes from the self-phase noise of a component as a signal passes through it. It’s important to be able to measure this type of residual noise contribution of each single component part of a system design. This application note explains how you can use Berkeley Nucleonics' 7000 series of signal source analyzers to measure this residual noise.
Haigh-Farr Omnislot antennas provide the same radiation pattern characteristics as a stub or blade antenna in a thin, conformal, aerodynamic package. Omnislot antennas are preferable for use in applications where blade antennas may get damaged, such as net retrieval of RPV’s and high aero-heating environments.
The semi-rigid cable is unique in that it is easily bent to finished shape and still maintains its set after bending. This property makes it ideal for use with automated bending equipment as well as hand forming with bending tools.
