SATCOM-Blog-Header-Image-01-1024x256 SATCOM: Eye In The Sky

There are many ways to communicate via wireless transmission. One of the most prevalent forms of such is satellite communication (SATCOM). While this technology operates in a meshed network that envelopes the globe, we often forget it even exists.

  • Optimizing Clock Synthesis In Small Cells And Heterogeneous Networks

    Mobile network operators are increasingly turning to small cell base stations to expand coverage, increase capacity, and enable network densification in congested, high-traffic urban environments. Small cells are low-power radio access nodes that can be used by operators to offload mobile data to Internet Protocol (IP) networks and enable more efficient use of radio spectrum in 4G/LTE applications.

  • The Rectangular Waveguide Cut-Off Frequency

    The cut-off frequency is the frequency above which the waveguide offers minimum attenuation to the propagation of the signal. Frequencies below the cut-off frequency are attenuated by the waveguide. The dominant mode in a waveguide is the propagation mode with the lowest cut-off frequency. 

  • EMI Shielding Techniques In RF Circuit Boards

    EMI shielding techniques protect devices from electromagnetic fields, radiofrequency interferences, and electrostatic fields. Nested shields prevent interference between different components. A via fence reduces crosstalk and EMI in RF circuits.
