  2. When Choosing Test Equipment, Don’t Forget the Interface
    9/5/2018

    When purchasing RF test equipment, it is tempting to concentrate on specifications, such as insertion loss, frequency range, or VSWR, without think ahead on the fact that a complex testing scheme usually involves integrating multiple pieces of equipment from multiple manufacturers. For multiple devices to work seamlessly together in an automated test flow, designers and engineers must also consider the interface that would be used to drive the testing equipment. This article discusses the differences in proprietary and generic interfaces, the benefits each type has to offer, and offers some solutions to potential interface barriers and how to remove them.

  3. Implementing High Performance Filters In Millimeter Wave Applications
    9/5/2018

    One of the challenges that 5G engineers face is how to sufficiently implement high-performance RF filtering in millimeter-wave applications. This white paper looks at some of the considerations to make when selecting a filter technology for millimeter-wave applications.

    HUBER+SUHNER’s RADOX®, or “radiation X-linked” technology, describes the process of crosslinking thermoplastic polymers by means of electron beams. This technology is used to improve the thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties of cable insulation materials. RADOX® cables do not melt, possess better abrasion resistance and greater cut resistance than conventional cables and, even with thinner insulation, are much more resistant to various environmental factors.
