09.26.13 -- Challenges And Solutions For Testing AESA Radar T/R Modules
AR RF/Microwave (ww.arworld.us) will be attending the European Microwave Conference (EMC) October 8 to 10 in Nürnberg. This event is the premier forum to present the current status and future trends in the field of microwave, millimeter-wave, and THz systems and technologies. A broad range of high frequency related topics will be addressed. Visit BOOTH 507 for a live demonstration from AR on some of its newest and most innovative products, with up to 200 W, 700 MHz to 6 GHz. www.eumweek.com
Welcome To RF Globalnet's European Microwave Week Pre-Show Newsletter
European Microwave Week (EuMW 2013) will take place from October 6 to 11 at the Nürnberg Convention Center, in Nuremberg, Germany. Microwave devices, systems for telecommunications (terrestrial and space born), transportation, medical, radar, and new fields of application are some of the areas that will be featured. EuMW 2013 will also showcase a variety of workshops and short courses as well as the European Microwave Exhibition, which constitutes the largest trade show on RF and microwaves in Europe. This newsletter will give you a taste of what you can expect. Click here for more information.
Challenges And Solutions For Testing AESA Radar T/R Modules By Darren McCarthy, aerospace and defense technical marketing manager, Rohde & Schwarz America
AESA radar systems are extraordinarily versatile, but their complexity — requiring precise alignment of hundreds or thousands of T/R modules — can present significant measurement difficulties. The active electronically scanned array (AESA) architecture has redefined the definition of what a radar system is and can do, turning it into a multifunction powerhouse that makes its predecessors pale in comparison.
This webinar explores the complex interactions at the chip, package, PCB, and connector level that give rise to crosstalk and other signal integrity problems in high-speed serial links. Both full-wave 3D simulation and hybrid 2D/3D simulation will be presented, and their capabilities compared.
This datasheet contains a detailed description on AR’s 50S1G6 50-W Solid State Broadband Amplifier and includes information on its specifications. This amplifier is ideal for EMC testing, can be used as a test instrument, and is suitable for a variety of communication technologies like CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, and GSM.
Sonnet’s high frequency electromagnetic software can be used in the analysis of microwave circuit discontinuities, arbitrary microstrip and stripline circuits, planar (patch) antennas, planar spiral inductors, RFIC and MMIC circuits, multi-layer circuits like LTCC and PCB technology, planar filter analysis, and high-density interconnects.
The 5048 VNA is an S-parameter vector network analyzer designed for operation with an external PC. It connects to any Windows-based computer via USB and delivers accurate testing and measurement through a platform that can keep up with constant advancements as well as be remotely accessed.
For this year's EuMW, CST has a full program in store at booth 103; including demos and application and simulation technology talks. Don't miss the preview of CST STUDIO SUITE 2014® or our traditional 'Booth Party' where you can get in touch with the simulation experts.
