Design Guidelines For Schottky Rectifiers
By Jon Schleisner, Vishay

The known limitations of Schottky rectifiers can be measured and controlled, allowing for wide use in applications with switch mode power supplies. This application note differentiates the fiction from facts regarding this type of rectifier and offers guidelines for designing a Schottky rectifier at optimal performance level and costs.

How Can A Low-Noise Amplifier Improve My System's Performance?
By Mike Trimble, NuWaves Engineering

For a receiver to properly demodulate an RF signal and recover the data, the signal that arrives at the receiver must be sufficiently higher than the noise. This article presents the different benefits of using an LNA and how this instrument can improve wireless systems.

Care And Handling Of Cable Assemblies And Connectors
By Bill Pote, Megaphase

Cable assemblies are critical to obtaining correct test results and signal integrity in many applications. Proper care and handling of cable assemblies and connector interfaces is critical for insuring accurate operation. 

The Future Of E3 And Spectrum Engineering
By Tim McDonald, EMA chief scientist

In military procurement, the spectrum and electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) considerations are afterthoughts. To enable next-gen military systems and fleet upgrades, we must consider dynamic E3 and spectrum requirement during system development and procurement phases.

De-Confliction Filtering In Communication Systems
By Teledyne Microwave Solutions

Higher capacity links need wider bandwidth in which to operate. One such environment is tactical communication systems operating in the 200 to 450 MHz range. Radios operating in this band can generate harmonics, broadband noise, and intermodulation distortion.
