  1. Designing With Plastic RF Power Transistors
    1/28/2015

    For many semiconductor products, plastic long ago emerged as the package technology of choice. For commodity products, such as small signal transistors, plastic offers low-cost encapsulation that is easily scaled to high volumes. For RF power amplifiers, plastic packaging helps address certain performance limitations inherent in ceramic devices. This white paper outlines the six main benefits of RF power plastic packages and provides recommendations on PCB layout. It also discusses mounting and soldering techniques that help create a robust, cost-effective design solution using over-molded plastic RF power devices.

  2. Wireless Dose-Compliance Monitoring In Drug-Delivery Devices
    1/28/2015

    Incorporating wireless technology into medical devices is about more than just keeping up with the hottest technology trends; the benefits are real and significant, especially with regard to monitoring and encouraging dose compliance in the pharmaceutical and medical realm. Prior to embarking on the development of a wireless-enabled drug-delivery device, however, it is crucial to know what, specifically, the benefits are, and exactly what kinds of challenges and design considerations must be taken into account.

  4. GaN Thermal Analysis For High-Performance Systems
    1/21/2015

    This paper addresses Qorvo’s integrated approach to thermal design that leverages modeling, empirical measurements (including micro-Raman thermography), and finite element analysis (FEA) for high performance microwave GaN HEMT devices and MMICs. This methodology is highly effective and has been empirically validated. By properly addressing FEA boundary condition assumptions and the limitations of infrared microscopy, resulting model calculations are more accurate at both the product and end application level than traditional methods based on lower power density technology.

  5. USB Power Sensor Measurement Uncertainty Calculator v2.0
    1/21/2015

    A Microsoft Excel tool for calculating power uncertainty. It contains two tabs; one that provides measurement uncertainty for each sensor (selectable from a drop-down menu), and another tab that provides additional uncertainty components and calculated values for the MA24105A Peak Power Sensor.

  6. USB Power Sensor Family
    1/20/2015

    Anritsu USB power sensors eliminate the need for a traditional power meter. These highly accurate, standalone instruments communicate with a PC via USB or with most of the Anritsu handheld instruments (often requiring Option 19). The sensors measure true RMS power, so they are ideal for measuring CW, modulated RF waveforms (ex. 3G, 4G and OFDM signals) and multi-tone signals. They are ruggedized for field use with an industry-leading +33 dBm damage level. 

  7. Microwave USB Power Sensor (PSN50)
    1/20/2015

    As an overview, the PSN50 sensor provides true RMS measurements from -30 dBm to +20 dBm over the frequency range 50 MHz to 6 GHz enabling users to make highly accurate power measurements for both CW and digitally modulated signals such as GSM/EDGE, CDMA/EV-DO,WCDMA/HSDPA, WiMAX, and TD-SCDMA. Accurate power measurements in the field are important for verifying that transmitter outputs are operating at specified levels. For example, service technicians need to verify base station output power because lower output power can quickly translate into large coverage differences that can cause dropped calls.

    1/20/2015

    The PSN50 is designed to provide accurate power measurements from 50 MHz to 6 GHz for many products in the Anritsu catalog. The PSN50 is currently compatible with Site Master, Cell Master, Spectrum Master, BTS Master, VNA Master, and the MS271xB Economy Microwave Spectrum Analyzer instruments.

  9. Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24126A)
    1/20/2015

    The MA24126A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 26 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone,and digitally modulated signal up to 26 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.

  10. High Gain, Low Noise Amplifier: SKY67103-396LF Datasheet
    1/15/2015

    Skywork’s SKY67103-396LF is a low noise amplifier well-suited for applications involving LTE, GSM, WCDMA, and HSDPA macro base stations, cellular repeaters, low noise receivers, and high temperature receivers.
