Understanding The PSP Series Of USB Pulse Power Sensors

AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation introduces its new PSP series of wideband USB pulse power sensors. Ideal for EMC testing, testing, troubleshooting, amplifier design, and research, these sensors are instruments of choice for fast, accurate, and highly reliable RF and microwave power measurements.

Biconical Antenna Selection

For many years most regulatory standards called for the use of a half-wave dipole antenna set for frequencies above 20 MHz. However, to reduce test time, broadband antennas such as the biconical antennas began to be accepted. 

Introducing An Automotive 600 V/m Radar Pulse Test Solution

For performing L- and S-band pulsed radar testing at 600 V/m, AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation offers the 700S1G4 amplifier and the ATH800M5GA antenna, which have been proven to provide the necessary field levels under the required test configurations.

Why Predictability Matters In High-End PCB Manufacturing

Predictability is essential for PCB manufacturing. Without it, a product’s reliability cannot be assured. Conventional approaches to predictability often fall short. Inspection, for example, only reveals superficial flaws. Micro-sectioning is destructive in nature and inadequate for complex PCBs with thousands of vias. 

300-Watts, 500 kHz, RF Amplifier: KAA2030-M11

The Model KAA2030M11 is a special-purpose, RF power amplifier at the frequency of 500 kHz. This product does not require tuning, band switching, or adjustments of any kind. Power output is in excess of 300 Watts into a 50-Ohm load.

H-Field Rod Antenna Kit

The AK-HFR H-Field rod provides an accurate standard for magnetic field testing. For those situations when improved sensitivity is desired in magnetic field testing, the AK-HFR H-Field rod is an effective alternative to traditional loop antennas. One amplifier pre-assembled to a metallic ground plane covers the entire frequency range and can be used with any or all of the H-Field rod antennas.
