Current satellite communication systems use static beams, with little or no options of adjusting beam capacity to a varying demand. Beam hopping, based on the DVB-S2X broadcasting standard, allows redirecting capacity between beams, making satellite systems more flexible and efficient.
This article presents a solution of using four L60T01 amplifiers in hybrid configuration as an alternative for a higher output power amplifier.
This white paper presents and discusses the advantages of using high power RF amplifiers that employ a high voltage GaN technology operating above the industry standard of 50 V.
When analyzing the robustness of data transmission systems, jitter is a key indicator. It is recommended to use jitter measurement instruments for both the time and frequency domain in order to differentiate between fast and slow moving artifacts. This white paper compares measurement results of jitter in the time and frequency domain.
Diamond’s unique mechanical, optical, thermal, and electrochemical properties make it effective for a range of industrial uses. Synthetic and natural diamonds display the same chemical structure and physical properties, but synthetic diamonds offer control over defects and synthesis conditions, allowing manufacturers to optimize and tailor their properties.
This white paper presents a technique using quartz crystals mated with energy saving low power SoCs for reducing oscillator power consumption while achieving optimal oscillation margin. The paper also demonstrates measurements and key principles for designing reliable and low power oscillators.

130 Watts CW 18 To 26.5 GHz Broadband TWT Amplifier. The Model 130T18G26z5 is a self contained, forced air cooled, broadband traveling wave tube (TWT) microwave amplifier designed for applications where wide instantaneous bandwidth, high gain and moderate power output are required. A reliable TWT provides a conservative 130 watts minimum at the amplifier output connector
This video provides a tutorial on how to measure low phase with the external references in BNC’s Model 7300/7070.
At IEEE EMC SIPI 2018, AR demonstrates its new “AA” Series produce field strengths up to 50V/m in two band-specific models over the 18 to 40 GHz frequency range when driven with a suitable signal generator.
In this video, Sangam Baligar discusses multi-tone testing and the impact it has on time consumption and Return on Investment.
At the 2018 EMC SIPI Show, Rob Rowe discusses the AR web-enabled amplifier that can be controlled remotely without buying any new software.
EMC TV interviews Joe DiBiase on the different advantages that AR’s systems offers to customers.

Quantenna Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTNA), the innovator and global leader of high performance Wi-Fi solutions announced the successful delivery of over 1Gbps throughput, demonstrated using Quantenna QSR10GU-AX PLUS and QSR10G, each independently communicating with commercially available mobile products.
FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr says the United States is in "great shape" to win the global 5G race, but China has more cell sites and has heavily outspent the U.S. on infrastructure; Ericsson ups its U.S. commitment; and the Philippines gets its first 5G test network, all in today's The Week In 5G
Metawave Corporation today announced the addition of Infineon Technologies (FSE:IFX) in its recent financing round.
Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has unveiled a new line of SPDT high-power PIN diode RF switches that offer desirable performance for transmit and receive signal routing applications.
By stacking and connecting layers of stretchable circuits on top of one another, engineers have developed an approach to build soft, pliable “3D stretchable electronics” that can pack a lot of functions while staying thin and small in size. The work is published in the Aug. 13 issue of Nature Electronics.
To support the accelerated build out of 5G in the United States, Ericsson will increase its investment in the market. This series of strategic initiatives will allow Ericsson to operate even closer to its customers, meeting the growing demand for 5G globally and in the region.
