Industry Insights
Alternative To Synthesizers: Integrated Stabilized RF Sources

Radar simulation systems must accurately prove whether an electronic warfare (EW) system is ready to perform reliably in the field. This can be challenging for EW system engineers, and some choose to use a synthesizer.

SOSA And VITA: Working Together For Next-Gen Defense Systems

This article is an overview of the SOSA and VITA organizations and how they interact, along with the challenges, successful strategies, and illustrative examples.

LINAC Products

LINAC Magnetrons are high-power microwave oscillators that take the potential energy of an electron cloud near its cathode and convert it into RF energy. Their application areas are fairly diverse and can run the gamut from cooking to cancer therapy.

What To Think About When Replacing Film Capacitors With MLCCs

Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are emerging as an excellent alternative to film capacitors. This article reviews some of the considerations to keep in mind when you are deciding if making the switch is the right choice for your application.
