Spotlight On RF/Microwave Software & Design
High-Speed Connector Design With Modeling And Simulation

Devices are evolving rapidly and so have a very short product life cycle that limits the available time for design and analysis. Given such short time frames, how do we improve prediction capabilities and make better design decisions?

Innovations In Wideband RF Signal Processing

As industries continue to demand uninterrupted communication and seamless connectivity, wideband RF signal processing systems continue to grow in importance.

Simulation Model Considerations: Part I

In part 1 of this series, we discuss the challenges and limitations of modeling inductors and provide examples of selecting the appropriate inductor model for various simulations.

Digital Debunking: How Difficult Is It To Shatter A Backboard?

Using Altair simulation tools, we pushed a basketball hoop model to its limits to see how much force a backboard can withstand before it breaks (keeping in mind current design regulations).

Simulating RF Desense And Electromagnetic Interference In Electronic Devices

It is a universal experience of modern life: You’re in an area of sufficient cellular signal, but the internet connection is degraded. A Bluetooth link is dropped even though the device battery is fully charged. The touchscreen of a device is unresponsive for no apparent reason.

Base Station Measurement Automation Solution

The P7000 Base Station Measurement Automation Solution is a software platform that provides preconfigured test cases, reducing test development time and maintenance costs and speeding up your time to market. 

Solving RF Noise Problems

Every wire that enters or leaves your system is an antenna. That wire can radiate noise and it can also receive noise, as well as carry it into your electronic system. Antennas work both ways; they can receive and transmit, often at the same time. EMI filters stop the noise.

Can Additive White Gaussian Noise Make Directed Energy Weapons More Powerful?

An enemy target is in sight. With its location confirmed, an extremely powerful and highly focused electromagnetic energy beam (e.g., a high-power laser) is emitted to incapacitate or destroy the adversarial force. This is the mission objective of directed energy weapons (DEW).
