RF Tape And Reel Packaging Application Note

This application note discusses RF components that are available to be delivered in Tape & Reel packaging and describes three different packaging types for 3 x 4, 5 x 5 and 7 x 7 sized products.

Tips From The Lab: Vertical Mount MLCC’s To Save Board Space And Achieve High Capacitance Values

As many industries, including RF and automotive, need to incorporate more features in less space, engineers are constantly looking for ways to do more in a smaller footprint. To address this problem, Knowles Precision Devices developed a highly reliable stacked capacitor solution, known as StakiCap. 

Glass Sidewall Packages Provide Performance For RF Applications

Glass sidewall packages achieve highest levels of hermeticity for hardware in space vacuums and extreme temperatures. Compared to ceramic, they deliver better RF performance thanks to their lower dielectric constant.

Flexible Substrates For Smart Sensor Applications

By combining thin film technology, as known from the semiconductor industry, with traditional flex circuit manufacturing technologies, substrates with enhanced properties can be manufactured and assembled with standard SMT processes.

Understanding Phase Versus Temperature Behavior

It can be difficult to understand the combination of complex microwave transmission concepts with complex material properties, especially in phase stability versus temperature. This article will help readers understand this phenomenon, starting with the basics of phase length and phase delay.
