192928_Fig_01 Wideband Receiver For 5G, Instrumentation, And ADEF

From the beginning, one of the biggest challenge to radio designers has been the limitations of bandwidth. Early on, our radio forefathers thought that frequencies above a few hundred kHz were of no value because of detector limitations.

  • Keeping On-Board Connectivity Fast With New Wi-Fi 6e Antennas

    We are now living in an increasingly digitally driven society where reliable Wi-Fi is a key aspect of everyday life, and this is true whether you are at home, or on the move. The rail passengers of today expect the same connectivity on-board as they do when relaxing at home. They want to work, communicate, or stream movies while travelling by train, causing more and more demand for higher data throughput rates. 

  • Overcoming EMI In Electric Vehicle Applications

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, 2020 was the fifth consecutive year of growth in electric vehicle (EV) sales, and the demand is growing. Based on the first quarter numbers, the Bureau anticipates 2021 sales are on a path to surpass last year’s. 

  • Your Quick Guide To Trimmer Capacitor Selection

    As you already know, capacitors are essential circuit elements for storing and suppling charge on demand. For inductors and resistors, capacitors act as the building blocks of passive circuits and the supporting components for active circuits. While a wide range of fixed-value capacitors are used in most electrical circuits, it is sometimes preferable, or necessary, to use a component with a variable capacitance range.
