Rutgers engineers have embedded high performance electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics, which could lead to smaller and versatile drones and better-performing small satellites, biomedical implants and smart structures.
Satellites do a lot of things — they help people navigate from one place to another, they deliver television programming, they search for new stars and exo-planets and they enable the U.S. nuclear deterrence strategy. But until recently, one thing they haven’t done — or needed to do — is defend themselves.
Testing new silicon carbide and gallium nitride high voltage, high-power semiconductor devices involves the consideration of test system safety, wide voltage ranges, and accurate current measurements. Coupling a Keithley SourceMeter SMU instrument like the 2470, KickStart software, and their associated accessories meets all these needs and further facilitates research of high voltage materials and semiconductor devices.
JFW's family of RF test systems designed for transceiver testing connects multiple radios together in a closed mesh network configuration. Variable step attenuators allow you to dynamically fade up/down the RF signal between radios. Available in three different basic configurations to simulate almost any network topology (custom configurations available upon request).
V2X is short for “vehicle to everything”. The term describes a vehicle’s communication with surrounding or interacting road users and structures. V2X technology is designed to be able to support autonomous driving and other cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS). This white paper further discusses V2X and its importance in vehicle systems.
Gallium nitride (GaN) is still considered a relatively new semiconductor technology. Because of its superior properties, it is being used more and more in market areas previously dominated by legacy technologies. One area where GaN rises above the incumbent technologies is thermal management. In short, GaN “can take the heat” much better than other semiconductor technologies. This article and the video titled “Understanding GaN Thermal Analysis” provide practical tips about how to properly design using GaN with thermal considerations in mind.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology's ability to support high frequency, wide bandwidths, and high-power density make it invaluable in any market requiring high performance in a small form factor. This article compares GaN to other semiconductor technologies and presents reasons for its superiority in miniaturized RF power amplifiers (PAs).
The Standard Gain Horn Antennas are designed specifically for utilization in emissions and immunity testing over the frequency range of 1 to 40 GHz. Each antenna is linearly polarized and has medium gain, low VSWR, and a constant antenna factor.
The Fischer Plastic Series is a family of high performance, fully insulated plastic connector bodies that are all compatible with Fischer’s metallic connectors. Key features include high reliable signal path, high signal and contact density, clear coding for easy operation, and resistance to large temperature variations.
Altair has expanded into areas of systems simulation and electromagnetics. Altair’s Pollex PCB solvers and verification tools extend these capabilities into a new domain, allowing Altair to provide software for system-level design decisions.
HUBER+SUHNER introduces the CT cable product family for phase critical applications creating a stable and reliable interconnect solution to satisfy a huge range of customer applications where phase stability is key. This video introduces these products that provide industry leading phase vs. temperature performance, as well as a unique range of cable constructions to fulfill any customer demands.
This video demonstrates Fischer Freedom™ Series’ ability to withstand extreme operating temperatures.
This video demonstrates Fischer Freedom™ Series’ ability to withstand long-standing exposure to salt fog.
This video demonstrates that the electrical functionality of the Fischer Freedom™ Series remains unchanged after being washed in a river, quickly dried, and mated back to a Fischer LP360™ plug with integrated LED.
