Due to its outstanding performance the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator is ideal for testing MIMO receivers in a vast variety of applications. It can generate up to eight antenna signals simultaneously in its digital baseband — all standard-compliant and with antenna-specific coding. This application note explains how to use the R&S SMW200A for testing higher order MIMO systems by presenting different key applications. Download the paper to learn more.
Magnetron Theory 101 By Communications & Power Industries, Beverly Microwave Division
A magnetron is a high-power microwave oscillator in which the potential energy of an electron cloud near the cathode is converted into RF energy in a series of cavity resonators. As depicted by the low frequency analog, the rear wall of the structure may be considered the inductive portion, and the vane tip region the capacitor portion of the equivalent resonant circuit. The resonant frequency of a microwave cavity is thereby determined by the physical dimension of the resonator together with the reactive effect of any perturbations to the inductive or capacitive portion of the equivalent circuit.

Front End Module (FEM) For ISM Band Applications This front end module (FEM) addresses the need for aggressive size reduction for typical portable equipment RF front end design and greatly reduces the number of components outside of the core chipset, thus minimizing the footprint and assembly cost of the overall solution.
JFW's passive RF components product line (including attenuators/terminations and power dividers) has been designed to meet LTE-MIMO-DAS deployments and upgrades due to the increased demands of MIMO on distributed antenna systems (DAS).
Quadrature hybrids are four-port directional couplers with a -3dB coupling coefficient. TRM Microwave offers high-reliability, space-qualified 90° and 180° quadrature hybrids along with standard models for land, air, and sea-based military architectures.
This non-reflective SP6T RF switch operates in the 100- to 1000-MHz frequency range, has a 1.5-dB (max) insertion loss, and 50-Ohms impedance. Its two most notable features, however, is that it requires only a positive supply of 10 to 15 volts, and the fact that it’s RS-422 controlled.
Taking place February 24 to 27 in Barcelona, Spain, Mobile World Congress will showcase the mobile industry’s leading companies, technologies, solutions, and services across the exhibition, in the conference program, and through a range of specialized programs. The conference will feature 10 keynote sessions as well as in-depth track sessions exploring a range of topics including applications, business strategy, cloud computing, connected living, developing markets, devices, mobile advertising, mobile health, mobile money, next-generation technologies, NFC, OSS/BBS, social media, and more. In addition, more than 1,700 companies from across the mobile ecosystem will be featuring products, services, and solutions at the exhibition. Register today.
