Farmers can already use drones to soar over huge fields and monitor temperature, humidity or crop health. But these machines need so much power to fly that they can’t get very far without needing a charge.
The small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) market has experienced exponential growth with the advent of brushless electric motors and high energy density lithium batteries. This means that the average person can shoot aerial photographs and video, capture extreme sports moments, and enter the sport flying hobby with aircraft that are electronically stabilized and considerably less expensive to own and operate. However, this also increases potential for weapon platforms, privacy violations, and interference.
Dynamic range specification determines whether or not low-level signals will be visible in the presence of large signals and therefore is one of the most important performance figures for a spectrum analyzer.
Wolfspeed, a Cree Company, developed an application circuit that demonstrates the ability for their CGHV1F025S to operate between 4400 MHz to 5000 MHz for satellite communication applications. The circuit utilizes two devices connected using a Wilkinson combiner in a balanced configuration. This application note describes the typical performance that has been achieved and what can be expected when evaluating the application fixture.
Selecting the right testing instrument for a project is essential to get products to market faster. This is Part 1 of a two-part white paper discussing signal generators. This paper offers an overview of the fundamentals of signal generators, enabling users to make the right decision when selecting one for different applications.
Every time a new cellular phone standard comes out, we see new claims about the “end of Wi-Fi.” When 3G was announced, the promise was that it would make Wi‑Fi (802.11b) redundant, which clearly turned out to be incorrect. With 4G (LTE), this story repeated itself and claimed it would put Wi‑Fi (802.11ac) in the shredder. And now the 5G message is that it will cover both the inside and outside of homes and buildings. It’s almost as though Wi‑Fi will soon no longer be needed. This begs the question: What will be the impact of the next generation of Wi‑Fi, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)? Do we even need it in the 5G/wireless landscape? This article discusses the answers.
Wire and ribbon bondable and Flipchip thick film chip attenuators, printed and fired on 96% alumina. Provides attenuation accuracy for frequencies through 10 Ghz. Double layer terminations provide additional bonding surface. Abrasive trimming ensures optimum resistor stability
KRYTAR’s new directional coupler is a superior performance narrow band product covering the 7.0 to 12.4 frequency range. Adding to the selection of multi-purpose, stripline designs that exhibit excellent coupling, Model 120706 enhances the product line with performance ratings including Nominal Coupling (with respect to output) of 6 dB, ±0.5 dB, and Frequency Sensitivity of ±0.30 dB.
Narda Safety Test Solutions demonstrates a dynamic range comparison of different spectrum analyzers and receivers. This video compares the best-in-class handheld spectrum and network analyzer, portable radio monitoring receiver, and real-time spectrum analyzer.
Today’s shift towards faster 4G networks has transformed our world with entirely new mobile apps with higher connectivity. In the growing Internet of Things, these faster networks are extremely important for the seamless transfer of high amounts of data. 5G networks are the future technology that will connect the world we live in.
Skyworks offer two new front-end modules (FEMs) for GNSS/GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/Compass/QZSS radio receiver applications in the 1559 to 1606 MHz frequency range. The SKY65933-11 and the SKY65943-11 feature an integrated low noise amplifier (LNA), and a pre-filter and post-filter. Both devices use surface-mount technology (SMT) in the form of a 2.5 x 2.5 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable and low-cost solution.
Skyworks’ newest family of compact, high performance RF front-end modules (FEMs) is specifically designed for LPWAN – supporting LoRa®, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860-930 MHz frequency range. These new solutions deliver improved sensitivity and more than quadruple the operating range versus a standalone system-on-chip (SoC).
