10.12.23 -- Submarine Cables, The Black Sea, And The War In Ukraine


Submarine Cables, The Black Sea, And The War In Ukraine

Russia has been making the argument that it’s their right to destroy “the ocean-floor cable communications of our enemies.” So, how safe are the nearly 1 million miles worth of submarine cables, particularly those in the Black Sea keeping Ukraine up and running?


Building An Optimal Test Environment And Avoiding Connection Issues

The impact of connectors on RF test results is complex and unpredictable, with test equipment often unable to fully compensate, emphasizing the crucial need for a valid test environment.

De-Embedding Test Fixtures For High-Speed Digital Applications

Test fixtures are often used in high-speed digital measurements to connect devices to measurement equipment. Analyzing in both time and frequency domains reduces the influence of these fixtures.

An Introduction To Microwave Power Modules

In 1991, the tri-service (Army, Navy, and Air Force) initiated the Microwave Power Module (MPM) program and awarded development contracts to most TWT companies. The program aimed to enhance the development of microwave tubes in the U.S. and integrate the best of vacuum electronics and solid-state technologies. This overview provides a detailed look at the development of MPMs.
