24 GHz Demorad Radar Solutions Enable New Contactless Sensors

24 GHz, silicon-based millimeter-wave radar technology is enabling a new generation of real-world, no-contact smart sensors that are increasingly being used in mass market applications such as automotive, UAVs/drones, broad industrial, and consumer. 

Development Tactics And Techniques For Small Form Factor RF Signal Recorders

This paper describes the design techniques used to develop a small form factor rugged recorder that handles extremely high data rates associated with wide-andwidth RF signal recording. It details how to use in confined, extreme environments while considering military specs, SWaP, and ease of use.

Extending The Range Of A Low-Power UAV Radio

Low-power UAV radio systems, though designed for short distance communications, can be an inexpensive and reliable means of communications over greater distances — especially when the application is small UAS platforms.

Understanding Composite Microwave Filters

Corry Micronics has developed a complete line of composite cavity RF filters for use in UAVs. Download this white paper to learn about these filters, the challenges faced in creating them, and why they are so important for electrical engineers in today’s market.
