Expansion will give AR unparalleled high power capabilities.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has broken ground on a major expansion project at its headquarters in Souderton, PA. The expansion will add a two story 10,000 sq. ft. addition, increase the power provided to our facility to 2 Megawatts, and give AR the capability to manufacture and test high-power RF amplifiers in excess of 100 kW. This aggressive move further strengthens AR's position as the leader in high power RF amplifiers. Learn more.

What Can Micro-Windmills Teach Us About The Future Of Medical Device Design? By Jim Pomager
At some point in the not-so-distant future, you’ll be able to recharge your smartphone by waving it about in the air for a few moments or (less conspicuously) by simply holding it out in a stiff breeze.What does this have to do with medical device design, you ask? Quite a lot, as it turns out.
The Design Of Ultra-Narrow-Band Amplifiers Using Small Signal Varactor Up-Converters For ESM, ECM, ECCM, And ELINT Applications By Dr. Alfred I. Grayzel, Dr. Ashok (Ash) K. Gorwara, Paul Kuhn, Planar Monolithics Industries, Inc.
A method is presented in this paper for realizing tunable amplifiers with bandwidths of less than 0.5 percent, without the use of superconductors and cryogenic cooling. This method uses a small signal varactor up-converter to achieve these ultra-narrow bandwidths. The equivalent circuit for the up-converter is presented as well as the circuit configuration of the narrow-band negative resistance amplifier. The design and experimental results are presented for a 0.5 percent bandwidth negative resistance amplifier at 800 MHz, using this unique circuit design. These devices and circuits can be used for electronic warfare applications such as surveillance, electronic reconnaissance, jamming, and frequency hopping.

Ensuring that new devices meet regulatory and certification requirements is a necessity. Remcom's tools can greatly speed the design and certification process by allowing realistic simulations of device performance before the costly prototyping stage. Analysis options include device performance, such as tuning, and bio-interaction including SAR.
These junction-tuning varactors are ideal for use with defibrillators, low-tuning voltage VCOs, and high-volume commercial systems. They’re characterized for capacitance and resistance over temperature.
