Comparing PME And BME MLCCs For High-Reliability Applications

The maturity of PME MLCCs and their proven reliability provide confidence, yet newer BME MLCCs lead in commercial applications based on cost and size specifications. It's expected that BME MLCCs will become more widely accepted as an option for high-reliability applications.

Choosing A Signal Generator For Radar Testing? These Parameters Are Key

There are three essential performance parameters when choosing a signal generator to evaluate a radar system: phase noise, frequency switching speed, and cost.

Highly Reliable Coaxial Switches With Options For Countless Applications

Coaxial switch customers require a variety of options for reliable switching in repeatable, high-power, extreme temperature, or custom switches.

Combining RF Signals And DC Power In Single Coax Cable With AR-RBT

The AR-RBT is a tactical low-loss bias tee designed to combine RF signals and DC power into a single coax cable for use in harsh environments. It eliminates the need to run additional cabling to the top of an antenna mast, reducing weight and complexity from base station deployments.
