Analog Devices announced today a collaboration with MDA to deliver the beam forming integrated circuit (BFIC) to be used in MDA’s sophisticated phased array antenna for the Telesat Lightspeed low earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellation.
As wireless communications networks look to a 5G future, the test and measurement industry faces significant challenges in meeting the revolution head on. To accommodate the huge array of devices and applications the market will require, 5G will be more a leap forward than a step up.
Full body scanners have become an important part of the security and threat detection toolkit around the world. This article discusses how, by making the right technical design and partnership choices, system integrators of these full body scanners can be more confident in offering commercially viable solutions for this fast growing market.
There are some technologies that have re-defined their categories and made game-changing improvements in their applications. And while these technologies generally emerge to solve a specific problem, we can suddenly envision the range of possibilities they create for similar problems in other settings.
Fluid-level measurements can be accurately measured through the wall of a nonmetallic tank by placing an air-dielectric transmission line up against the side of the tank and sensing the RF impedance. This article provides an empirical design example that illustrates how a reflectometer device such as the Analog Devices ADL5920 can simplify the design.
Much of the early phased array work was developed for radar applications, so considering the evolution of radar antenna implementations provides good insight as to how the modern digital beamforming antennas were conceived. This article summarizes some of the routine inquiries that are scattered in various forms on the internet into a more comprehensive discussion.
Electronic circuits fall into two broad categories—those that process and transform signals and those that measure signals. Circuits that measure RF signal strength, whose fundamental metric is power, are generally called detectors, but only a thermopile (bolometer) measures this quantity directly.
Analog Devices’ RadioVerse™ family of integrated transceiver products allow for a high density of RF paths in a small space, so they are well suited to massive MIMO applications.
Directional couplers are used in a wide variety of applications to sense RF power, and they may appear at multiple points in a signal chain. In this article, we will explore the ADL5920, a new device from Analog Devices that combines a broadband directional bridge-based coupler with two rms responding detectors in a 5 mm × 5 mm surface-mount package.
The ADRF5740 does what its name suggests, it attenuates – lowers - the strength of incoming and outgoing RF signals. The ADRF5740 is part of a complete signal chain for just about any RF or microwave circuit from 10 MHz all the way up to 60 GHz.
Designing in high speed analog signal chains can be challenging because there are so many noise sources to consider. In this article, the most common outside noise sources are described, along with how they influence the total dynamic system performance of a high speed signal chain. The article also provides some analog and digital tricks that can be employed to further increase the signal-to-noise ratio in your next design.
