Addressing Phase Noise Challenges In Radar And Communication Systems
By Custom MMIC Design Services (CMDS), Inc.

The most critical parameter in defining target acquisition for radar and spectral integrity in communication systems is phase noise. While many papers detail the mathematical derivation of phase noise, few mention the reasons for its importance. This app note discusses the importance of phase noise and what can be done to lessen its effects in microwave systems.

Wideband GaN Amplifiers: Modular, non-ITAR

The Teledyne Microwave Solutions (TMS) family of GaN-based amplifiers maximizes power density and efficiency, and establishes a new benchmark for small size in the 0.1 to 6.0 GHz range that operates over multi octave. With dimensions of 2.5"L x 2"W x 0.42"H at only 2.1 cubic inches, these modular, non-ITAR GaN amplifiers maintain the rugged design characteristics needed for harsh airborne and land based requirements.

IMS2017 International Microwave Symposium

June 4 to 9, 2017 | Honolulu, Hawai'i

IMS2017 is the largest international conference devoted to the research, development, and application of RF and microwave theory and techniques, and is expected to draw over 8,000 participants and 500 exhibiting companies from around the world. This is the 60th year that MTT-S has organized this symposium, and only the second time that it is being held off of the North American continent — the first time being 2007 when it was also held in Hawai‘i. Hawai‘i has long been regarded as the Crossroads of the Pacific, making it the perfect venue to bridge East and West by encouraging attendees and exhibitors alike to interact in a global microwave village.

Making The Right Choices When Specifying An RF Switching System

Designing RF switching systems can be dull, so the importance of designing one is often overlooked. However, designing a proper switching system is essential to the operation of the rest of the testing system, so it is vital to make the right choices for a successful automation.
