Sequential Peeling: A Model-Based Approach To Structure Identification And De-Embedding

Sequential peeling is a model/measurement-based method of network extraction for de-embedding. This paper is about one of those model-based approaches that uses position information about structures in the fixture, and an indicated impedance/admittance model to extract parameters of that particular structure. 

Top 10 Small Cell Infrastructure Questions

While small cells offer a host of benefits, they also create new challenges for designers; namely, heat issues. Power-efficient power amplifiers offer a compelling solution to this dilemma. This Q&A sheds light on some of the key trends and challenges in today’s small cell market and uncovers the power-efficient PA’s role in overcoming these challenges.
