GAO Warns FCC That IoT Growth Could Lead To Spectrum Congestion
GAO Warns FCC That IoT Growth Could Lead To Spectrum Congestion

The United States Government Accountability Office (U.S. GAO) urges the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to monitor the increasing number of high bandwidth and unlicensed-spectrum devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). GAO says this would give FCC a leg up in ensuring adequate radio frequency (RF) spectrum is available for all stakeholders.

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.

Reaching New Levels Of Linearity In Passive Mixers With GaN Technology

Until recently, the benefits of GaN technology beyond usage in amplification have not been pursued. Custom MMIC has recently been working with domestic foundries to investigate the use of GaN for passive mixers. The resulting discovery was that the high-linearity properties of GaN amplifiers also translated to mixers. This application note discusses the results of studies on new levels of linearity from GaN technology within different types of passive mixers.

Pulse Descriptor Word (PDW) Streaming With The R&S®SMW200A

Radar warning receivers (RWR) and electronic support measures (ESM) require signal validation against realistic and agile radar scenarios. In the past, these complex scenarios have only been available with dedicated and highly integrated radar scenario simulators. Now, the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator has been designed with the capabilities to take on the role. The instrument can generate the most modern I/Q modulated radar signals from streamed pulse descriptor words (PDW) received via LAN.
