An RF link budget is used to account for all the gains and losses in a telecommunication system. By accounting for the attenuation of the transmitted signal as it propagates through the communications channel, system designers can determine the required signal strength and antenna gain necessary to overcome all feedline and miscellaneous losses and to ensure an appropriate quality of signal for successful data transmission.
Many modern technological possibilities are available thanks to the evolution of sensor technologies and wireless devices. Likewise, the equipment and gear that a soldier needs have evolved to provide enhanced communication, detection, protection, real time situational awareness, and data analysis. In this article, new technologies and the future of soldier systems – such as segmented reality equipment – is discussed.
The complexity of modern day electronics has resulted in the need for better EMI diagnostic capabilities at EMC test laboratories to combat the increase in EMI compliance failure rates. One solution is to use real-time mode which enables visualization of the spectrum to provide insight in the identification of the source of failing EMI emissions. This white paper describes the cause of the shift in failure rate that many companies are experiencing, the need for increased speed in testing, and the revolutionary EMI diagnostic capability built into modern EMI receivers.
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.
