YIG Frequency Synthesizer YIG Frequency Synthesizer

Leveraging a long heritage of engineering innovation in YIG and low phase noise technologies, Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) has developed a brand new line of YIG synthesizers that substantially reduces the high cost of acquiring a high-quality, broadband low phase noise source. After many years of building the industry's lowest phase noise YIG Oscillators, TMS has applied that expertise to deliver on a longstanding industry aspiration for a 'Win-Win': low phase noise AND low cost in a plug n' play synthesizer solution.

0.7 - 6 GHz Solid-State Broadband Amplifier: Model 500S1G6 0.7 - 6 GHz Solid-State Broadband Amplifier: Model 500S1G6

    Ten Cues That It’s Time To Look Into A Channel Modeler

    A question Remcom is often asked is, “How is Wireless InSite® different from our planning tools?” While every tool is a little different, the most important differences between Wireless InSite and planning tools emerge when users need to simulate 5G mmWave and MIMO systems. This white paper presents ten cues that your organization may need a channel modeling tool like Wireless InSite to supplement your network planning efforts.

Power Supply Management Of GaN MMIC Power Amplifiers For Pulsed Radar

Today’s management systems must be extremely flexible, reusable, and easily adaptable to various RF amplifier architectures. Their enclosed RF amplifier MMICs are expensive and, as a result, the performance and temperatures of these systems must be monitored in real-time. 

Conducted And Over The Air Antenna Array Testing – The Way To 5G

5G networks need to be designed to offer more capacity and flexibility while lowering overall systems operation expenses. This paper discusses various test solutions that can address current and future requirements for antenna verification, including conducted and over-the-air test methods.

Wideband Optical Modulator And Detector Characterization: Uncertainties And The Impact On Eye Diagrams/Time Domain Modeling

Optical modulators and detectors have been characterized and calibrated over the years, but less attention has been made to the optimization of converter measurement uncertainties in a practical user context. Since frequency dependencies of various error mechanisms are different, the wide bandwidths could require procedural changes for optimum results. From a subsystem simulation/modeling/analysis perspective, accuracy in microwave/mm-wave frequency domain characterizations is important but sometimes not studied in terms of how they affect final eye diagram, bit error rate, or other higher level system operational parameters. This paper explores these characterization and calibration processes, as well as the net uncertainties, and their impact on example eye diagram generation.
