Resource Scaling For Antenna Placement Modeling On A SAAB JAS-39 Gripen Aircraft
By Altair Engineering Inc

This white paper demonstrates how resource requirements scale for the computational electromagnetic modeling of a modern fighter aircraft when the frequency increases. It also demonstrates how different simulation methods may be applied and how they scale relative to each other.

Spotlight On Space-Qualified Components
MMICs vs. Discrete Circuits, What Are The Trade-Offs?
Article | By Ryan Foster, NuWaves Engineering

One major decision a PA module designer must make during development is the choice of architecture utilized in the amplification circuit. The two most widely used options are an MMIC or a design built around discrete components. 

Multichannel Radar Signal Emulator (MRSE) System For Testing Radar In Space Applications
Case Study | D-TA Systems Inc.

D-TA Systems’ four-channel standard MRSE-2000 system is designed to provide a phase coherent multichannel radar signal emulator platform that could simulate the backscatter returns from a distant flying target to a multiple channel radar system. 

In Situ Calibration Utilizing The R&S ZN-Z3x Inline Calibration Units
Application Note | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

This app note covers a new calibration subsystem consisting of ICUs designed for in situ use. This method adds versatility, convenience, and accuracy to the VNA-based measurement system, as it allows calibration to be refreshed at any time without manually disconnecting the DUT from the test system.

Design And Physical Realization Of Phased-Array Antennas For MIMO And Beam-Steering Applications
White Paper | National Instruments (NI)

This white paper explores basic phased-array theory and the design considerations behind next-generation antenna systems and examines the new capabilities recently added to electronic design automation (EDA) software such as the NI AWR Design Environment platform.

Using 150 V-Bias RF GaN For 1 kW UHF Radar Amplifiers
White Paper | By Gabriele Formicone, Jeff Burger, and James Custer, Integra Technologies, Inc.

This white paper presents and discusses the advantages of using high-power RF amplifiers that employ a high-voltage GaN technology operating above the industry standard of 50 V.
