Sensors in autonomous vehicles have to be extremely reliable, since in the future motorists will no longer constantly monitor traffic while underway. In the past these sensors were subjected to arduous road tests.
When vacationers buy a stake in a beachfront timeshare, they decide in advance who gets to use the property when. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is helping the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) institute a similar plan for when commercial wireless providers and the U.S. Navy attempt to share a desirable 150-megahertz (MHz)-wide section of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum for communications.
EMI regulations are in place to provide users with improved reliability and safety for users of electrical and electronic equipment. It is common today to perform pre-compliance measurements during the design and prototyping stages to identify and address potential EMI issues before the product is sent out for compliance testing. This application note provides an overview of EMI compliance testing, pre-compliance testing, and the measurement regulations, and presents test setups using the RSA306 and similar low cost products are used to perform both radiated and conducted emission measurements that can help minimize both the expense and schedule for getting products EMI certified.
Powertrain electrification and automation are the key technology drivers that will ultimately lead to a new generation of all-electric, fully autonomous vehicles. At the same time, with the emergence of new business models, utilizing cloud and big data technologies, there will be a shift away from car ownership towards mobility services provided by new types of vehicle fleet operating companies. This white paper describes TE Connectivity’s vision for the next generation of mobility and its impact on vehicle architectures. It also shares how TE’s technology and portfolio address critical connectivity challenges the industry is experiencing.
Television is considered one of the most important media of communication in Mexico. However, transmitting broadcast signals to some of the country’s remote areas can be challenging. That is why the Center for Research and Applied Sciences (CIICAp) at the University of Morelos, Mexico (UAEM), embarked on a project to improve antenna signal stability. This research resulted in a miniature antenna that could potentially bring TV broadcasting to remote, rural areas in developing countries, therefore making education, culture and entertainment available to populations that could not afford it otherwise.
This white paper discusses the design challenges faced and the solutions available for today’s radar needs, both for defense and civil applications.
This white paper presents and discusses practical examples of communication simulations involving MIMO technology. It also discusses two workflows existing for MIMO simulations and presents an example with relevant results for each.
Dielectric Laboratories (DLI) offers a series of single layer capacitors designed with Class II dielectric materials and X7R temperature stability characteristics for a variety of DC blocking or RF bypass applications. With operation capabilities over a broad frequency range, these high frequency, wire bondable capacitors are ideal for GaN, GaAs, filtering, tuning, and coupling applications where small size and microwave performance is vital for a circuit’s performance.
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. has introduced two miniature 0402 varactor diodes for VCO, phase noise, frequency control and voltage tuned filter applications including WLAN, CATV low noise block, energy management, wireless infrastructure and military devices. These small form factor, low profile plastic surface mount technology packaged diodes offer a discrete solution and are ideal for applications requiring low resistance and low capacitance over a narrow 0 to 5 volt range. These general market, miniature diodes offer a reduced footprint and combine both low series resistance and high tuning ratio in an industry-standard package.
