Imagine a world where smartphones, laptops, wearables, and other electronics are powered without batteries. Researchers from MIT and elsewhere have taken a step in that direction, with the first fully flexible device that can convert energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity that could power electronics.
Researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a quantum circuit that enables them to listen to the weakest radio signal allowed by quantum mechanics. This new quantum circuit opens the door to possible future applications in areas such as radio astronomy and medicine (MRI).
New RFSoC technologies add RF-class analog to digital and digital to analog data converters to Xilinx’s already powerful MPSoC, ARM processor enhanced family of high-performance FPGAs. The implications of its use changes the way engineers could design and package small, high-channel count systems for 5G, military, and scientific applications. This white paper takes a look at the current trends in data converters and signal processing to better understand the capabilities of RFSoC and how to best use the advantages of the technology.
This article covers key parameters in the selection of RF inductors and what parameters should be considered first in the process.
The Lange Coupler was developed by Dr. Julius Lange of Texas Instruments in 1969. These couplers feature a specific orientation of directional couplers and are used as passive power combiners and RF/microwave splitters for a large range of frequencies. The best-performing designs employ minimized line distance and spacing, along with very tight tolerance control to maximize their advantage.
This white paper presents a study of wireless connectivity of electronic devices in the Wi-Fi band. For accuracy, the analysis will use the full polarimetric information for each device’s antenna pattern. The study focuses on wireless connectivity between lamps and light switches in an indoor environment, with the goal to set guidelines for spacing between transmitters and receivers: wall-mounted switch boxes and ceiling-mounted lamps, as well as pairs of lamps.
In the field of TEMPEST, traditional analysis has focused on analog signal emanations from electronic devices. This paper provides an overview on the digital demodulation basics and delivers an understanding on how to analyze impairments on digitally modulated signals.
The new SUCOFLEX 400 microwave cable family has been specifically developed for industrial, medical, test and measurement and ground defence applications, where the lowest loss, highest performance, best phase stability versus temperature and phase stability versus bending, excellent return loss and mechanical stability are of the utmost importance.
Frequency ranges from 300 kHz to 67GHz, with two or four test ports, First VNA with second internal source up to 67 GHz for fast two-tone measurements on amplifiers and mixers
With its new R&S ZVA family of vector network analyzers, Rohde & Schwarz is taking a future-oriented approach. The analyzers offer a perfect balance between measurement speed, dynamic range, flexibility and precision, making them ideal for present and future measurement tasks...
