AR-5010 Rack-Mount Amplifier 0.7-6 GHz Solid State Power Amplifier Modules
AR's line of 0.7 – 6 GHz Hybrid Power Module Products (HPMs) offer the ultimate in performance over this wide frequency range in one compact connectorized housing. This design can meet the stringent requirements of today's military systems, and can also be price competitive to be used in various wireless applications. Both Class A and Class AB versions are available with output power levels up to 50 watts CW.
Challenges Customers Face In Communications Infrastructure And Aerospace, Defense, And Satcom Applications
Challenges Customers Face In Communications Infrastructure And Aerospace, Defense, And Satcom Applications
Customers working within the RF industry face many challenges, including those in the communication infrastructure and the aerospace, defense, and satcom markets. Wolfspeed has positioned itself to offer solutions to these challenges by delivering products made with silicon carbide, and by announcing a $1 billion investment in silicon nitride and GaN technologies. Check out this video by Gerhard Wolf of Wolfspeed for more information on these solutions.
Considerations For Sourcing Phase Match Cable Assemblies
Considerations For Sourcing Phase Match Cable Assemblies
Maddiel Gonzalez of MegaPhase talks about the parameters in sourcing phase match cable assemblies, especially phase-stable cables. To further help in assessing the phase match performance, MegaPhase offers this calculator tool to assess the phase match tolerance in a comfortable manufacturing scenario. Check out the full video for more on this tool and additional considerations in sourcing phase match cable assemblies.
How The Connected Car Market Is Growing
How The Connected Car Market Is Growing
What does it mean to have a connected car? Depending on who you are, it could mean connectivity to friends, family, or entertainment, safety and traffic control, or you could be focused on vehicle performance and onboard diagnostics. Steven Smith of Guerrilla RF discusses what the connected car means for the automotive semiconductor market. Check out the full video to learn about the demands connected cars place on semiconductor electronics, the qualifications that govern these solutions, and the RF IC solutions that Guerrilla RF has to offer.
End To End RF Over Fiber Connectivity Solution Demonstration
End To End RF Over Fiber Connectivity Solution Demonstration
During our last day at the show, Mike Bitting of HUBER+SUHNER demonstrates its end to end RF over Fiber connectivity solution. This solution stands out in its combination of optics with RF components, making it a customized solution for a variety of applications including satellite ground station applications, RF test lab applications, or any application where long, obtrusive cables would be better suited to optical transitions. Watch this video for the full demonstration.
mmWave Filtering For 5G Applications
mmWave Filtering For 5G Applications
With the growth of 5G applications in the RF industry, concerns have also arisen on the new filtering requirements and how much filtering will be needed for each application. Tim Brauner of Knowles Precision Devices (DLI) introduces their Ka-band frequency filters, and other custom designs to help solve these filtering challenges.
Custom MMIC Amplifier With World's Best Noise Figure At 0.6 dB
Custom MMIC Amplifier With World's Best Noise Figure At 0.6 dB
Chris Gregoire from Custom MMIC introduces an ultra-low noise amplifier with the world’s best noise figure at 0.6 dB, and high gain capabilities for the best performance available.
Key Non-Technical Roles Often Overlooked By Engineering Firms
Key Non-Technical Roles Often Overlooked By Engineering Firms
Nearly half of all open positions in a technical firm should be non-technical positions. This is often something that is overlooked in business start-ups, small businesses, or the more traditional companies in the RF industry. Wendy Shu, CEO and President of SAGE Millimeter, talks about the critical roles that every technical company should have in order to have the most success and growth in their fields. Check out the video to learn more about the benefits of these roles.
Challenges With mmWave High Power Amplifiers
Challenges With mmWave High-Power Amplifiers
Wrapping up the show, Mike Lee of dB Control addresses some of the challenges that engineers face when looking for mmWave high-power amplifiers. These challenges can include acquiring higher frequencies, higher broadband capabilities, smaller sizes, and more. dB Control delivers a number of solutions to meet these challenges as well as a variety of educational resources designed to meet specific application requirements.
