  1. Determining Integrated-Phase-Deviation In Phase-Noise Measurements

    Many types of modern spectrum analyzers can detect phase noise levels automatically, making phase noise measurements a task without much thought. However, it is always a good idea to better understand how modern spectrum analyzers measure deviations, as well as how to optimize a spectrum analyzer’s measurements even further. This white paper discusses key aspects in determining phase noise measurements, and presents formulas and examples that may be used for simplifying measurements.

  2. 5 Ways To Improve Your Technical Communication

    Whether we’re pitching to investors, networking at a trade show, or giving a conference presentation, our message impacts the results. If we’re not thoughtful about how we structure that content, select details, and deliver the information, it’s easy to lose the quality and clarity of our communication.

  3. Providing Coverage To The YYC Calgary International Airport

    Modern airports are bustling centers of communications, with an increasing number of people using mobile devices on the go and expecting anytime, anywhere connectivity. Further taxing wireless networks are airport facilities workers and public safety activities. What makes that communication so challenging is the airport’s large coverage area and high-capacity requirements. Such issues make providing adequate coverage and capacity for all users an elusive goal. That’s exactly the challenge YYC Calgary International Airport faced when it began building its new international terminal. The airport had virtually no commercial or public safety coverage from the macro, and as a result, the new international terminal faced both coverage and capacity issues.

  4. How Connectors Perform In Harsh Corrosive Environments

    Corrosion is a natural process that people have to deal with every day. In order to develop connectors for harsh and corrosive environments, it is important to understand the main factors driving corrosion, and how to make the best interconnection choices for a long-lasting and reliable solution. This white paper discusses the key factors in selecting the best connectivity options for even the most robust and corrosive application environments.

  5. Radar Cross Section Simulation: Air, Land, And Sea

    A platform’s radar cross section is a key concern in designing aircraft, vehicles, and ships, as well as a key parameter in planning a strategy or mission.

  6. Detecting Explosives Utilizing mm-Wave Radars

    The integration of digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms and machine learning in radar systems has enabled exploration of radar’s uses in new applications.

  7. Improving Accuracy And Throughput In Transmit/Receive Module Testing
