Why Predictability Matters In High-End PCB Manufacturing

Predictability is essential for PCB manufacturing. Without it, a product’s reliability cannot be assured. Conventional approaches to predictability often fall short. Inspection, for example, only reveals superficial flaws. Micro sectioning is destructive in nature and inadequate for complex PCBs with thousands of vias. 

Testing True Performance Of ADCs Using R&S®SMA100B Signal Generator

Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) have largely increased in speed and accuracy, allowing high-speed video processing and software defined radio (SDR) applications, where digitization is being performed at ever-higher intermediate frequencies (IF). 

Interference Hunting With Signal Hound's Spike Software

When interference hunting, it's possible to locate sources of interference while capturing detailed information about suspicious RF activity in the area. Spike's Interference Hunting analysis mode aims to untangle crossed signals by managing all the cluttered communication environments.

Unique mmWave Designs And Customized Products For Satcom, Radar, EW, And ECM Systems

Systems operating in the Ka-band, Q-band, and other high-frequency bands present more significant SWaP-C challenges than systems operating at lower frequencies, demanding more expertise from component designers.

CPI Receiver Protector Selection Guide

CPI offers a wide range of solid-state limiters, TR limiters, pre-TR limiters, pre-TR tubes, TR tubes, ATR tubes, and multipactors. Benefits of these products include extensive high power test capabilities, in-house environmental test facilities, and computer modeling and automatic test capabilities. 

Key Drivers Of Growth Acceleration In The Commercial Drone Market

The consumer drone market is reaching its saturation point, thanks to the global pandemic increasing drone use. Because of this, the commercial segment is now the fastest growing. Innovative products and technological developments have been especially prevalent in the agricultural and construction industries.

Shielding Effectiveness Test Guide

Many products incorporate electronics and wireless communications and need RF interference testing. This requires shielding enclosures that need proper testing to ensure their correct operation.
