Spotlight On Oscillators
Definitive Guide To UAVs

In the defense sector, unmanned systems have continued to transform military reconnaissance and surveillance missions. In fact, unmanned platforms and capabilities have become so broad that they’ve branched into more than a dozen categories and acronyms. 

Wilkinson Power Dividers And Feed Networks: A Brief Overview

Wilkinson Power Dividers are widely used in many RF and microwave communication systems, including those with multiple channels or complex feed networks. This white paper further discusses the capabilities and uses of these dividers in feed networks.

Transforming The Retail Experience — Top Four RF Opportunities

The global coronavirus crisis is placing unprecedented pressure on the retail industry. While it’s unknown how consumer behavior will adapt, retailers will likely accelerate the integration of their online and offline presence if they haven’t already. 

Anatomy Of An OCXO — Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator

An OCXO is a temperature-controlled device that maintains a quartz crystal's constant operating temperature. This prevents changes in the specified frequency due to variations in ambient temperature. 

Acceleration Sensitivity Characteristics Of Quartz Crystal Oscillators

This paper can help you predict and plan for the frequency errors your oscillator may experience as a result of acceleration forces.

Which Filter Response Type Is Best For My Application?

Once the system-level need for a filter is identified, it’s now time to determine which filter response type will accommodate other system-level requirements. At NuWaves, the most commonly utilized response types are the Chebyshev, Bessel-Thomson, and Butterworth. 

E-Book: FPGAs And Software-Defined Radio

High-speed RF processing for high-performance computing applications, as with software defined radio (SDR), require resources such as FPGAs to deliver flexibility and accuracy.
