Spotlight On Millimeter-Wave Technology
Wideband Millimeter-Wave Signal Generation And Analysis

Multiple instruments are required to generate wideband digital modulated signals found in the V-band and above. This app note describes how to use R&S products for V-band signal generation and analysis up to 500 MHz modulation bandwidth and how to expand modulation bandwidth up to 2 GHz. 

Utilizing Pulse Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers

Pulse traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) offer a cost-effective source of high RF power for applications in which only a low to moderate RF duty cycle is required. A typical application is electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) RF pulse susceptibility testing. 

RF To Millimeter-Wave Front-End Component Design Trends For 5G Communications

RF front-end architectures grow more complex with each generation of communication systems. To accommodate these architectures, more densification and miniaturization is taking place with electronic systems implemented through innovations in system-in-package (SiP) design. 

Introduction To Waveguide Connectors And Uni-Guide

The waveguide, along with the coaxial line, is one of the most important transmission media in any modern RF, microwave, and mm-wave component, subassembly, and system. In mm-wave bands, it is especially true that the waveguide is widely used, and engineers will pay high attention to loss.
