Modeling Millimeter-Wave Substrate Lens Antennas For Wireless Communications
White Paper | Altair Engineering Inc

A single-beam substrate antenna comprises a slot coupled microstrip antenna with a large lens constructed atop it. In 2001, scientists proposed designs for single and multi-beam millimeter-wave circularly polarized substrate lens antennas. This paper demonstrates creating these designs through FEKO.

Selecting Automotive-Grade Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors In Electric Vehicles
White Paper | Knowles Precision Devices DLI

The worldwide electric vehicle (EV) market is exploding in mainstream adoption as governments push for fuel economy improvements and automotive companies look for new market opportunities. 

Understanding RF Signal-Combining Technologies
Article | By James Price, Corry Micronics, Inc.

This article explores options for combining or separating signals and is intended to help engineers determine which component — or combination of components — is most advantageous, given the application.

Lightning Protection Catalog

H&S has over four decades of experience in developing and manufacturing lightning EMP and NEMP protectors and uses an extensive high-voltage impulse laboratory to verify designs in accordance with the valid international lighting, surge, and NEMP standards.

Electronic Packaging: Using EMI Material-Based Solutions
White Paper | By David Garagnani, W. L. Gore & Associates

It can be difficult when individual components could pass EMI testing, but as the components are combined into subsystems or into the final product, the DUT fails. Incorporating EMI shielding materials as part of an initial design is the most cost-effective way to prevent these last-minute issues during testing.

  Military Space Situational Awareness 2020

April 29 and 30, 2020 | London, United Kingdom

As the next generation of mega constellations are sent into orbit, understanding where satellites are and how they are interacting with other platforms is more critical than ever — as collisions can damage equipment valued into the billions and cripple vital communication and earth observation capabilities.
