  1. What Engineering Firms Are Looking For In Engineering Candidates
    6/14/2018

    Have you wondered how you can stand above the rest to be hired at an engineering firm? What qualifications are often overlooked in the interview process? This morning at IMS 2018, Wendy Shu, Vice President at SAGE Millimeter, talked to us in detail about what firms are looking for when hiring new engineers. Check out the video for the top three overlooked qualifications that firms are looking for in candidates.

  2. Challenges In Upgrading TWTs To The Newest Solid-State GaN Technologies
    6/14/2018

    GaN provides opportunities for solutions with wider bandwidth while reducing the need to replace TWT amplifiers with solid-state amplifiers. This afternoon at IMS 2018, Apet Barsegyan from Integra discusses solutions for the challenges in upgrading current TWTs in high-power radar and pulsed applications to the newest solid-state GaN HEMT technologies.

  3. How To Simplify Designs And Maximize SWaP-C With Positive Gain Slope Amplifiers
    6/14/2018

    A common problem in wideband systems is the roll-off of components as they go higher in frequencies. Christopher Gregoire from Custom MMIC discusses how to simplify the designs for these wideband systems, and maximize SWaP-C in all applications with the use of positive gain slope amplifiers.

  4. The Future Of RF System Amplifier Architectures
    6/13/2018

    Engineers are often challenged with the limited linearity associated with high power amplifiers. So where do these issues get solved? Instead of using traditional solutions like adding waveform generators or multiple broadband amplifiers, new super-linear amplifier technologies will be able to reduce harmonics, eliminate the external filter and its insertion loss, and save on time and money. Watch this video with George Bollendorf from Empower RF to learn more about what this new amplifier architecture will look like, as well as the benefits it will offer for many different applications.

  5. Product Video: 1-Port VNA Solutions For Multi-Port Measurements
    6/13/2018

    This afternoon at IMS 2018, Brian Walker from Copper Mountain Technologies illustrates the use of 1-port VNAs to make multi-port measurements for LTE and 5G applications that have multiple antennas and frequencies in one package.

  6. 5G Testing: Challenges And Solutions
    6/13/2018

    With 5G evolving to higher frequencies, engineers are often challenged with the density and phase stability in newly designed products. Chris Cox of W. L. Gore & Associates discusses these challenges and present us with a number of possible testing solutions.

  7. Product Video: Component Testing Solutions For 5G Applications
    6/13/2018

    Lawrence Wilson and Richard Pieciak from Rohde & Schwarz introduce the SMW Signal Generator and FSW Spectral Analyzer as high-performance component testing solutions for 5G NR signals in all frequency ranges. Watch the video for more information on these solutions.

  8. How To Simulate Throughput For A New Device Design
    6/13/2018

    Many engineers want to know how to calculate the throughput for a new antenna design, especially for 5G applications. Jeff Barney from Remcom walked us through the process of simulating the antenna element, modeling the channel propagation, and calculating the throughput modulation. Check out the video for more in-depth information, as well as a specific example of measuring the throughput of WiFi in a house.

  9. Measuring Inter-Pulse Noise In Radar Amplifiers
    6/13/2018

    To start off our second day here at IMS 2018, George Solomon from Communications & Power Industries (CPI), Beverly Microwave Division presents a technique for measuring inter-pulse noise within radar amplifiers. Ideally, an amplifier would have no inter-pulse noise measured to KTB of -174 dBm/Hz. Check out the video to learn how to make sure this measurement happens.

  10. Vibration Induced Phase Noise In Ovenized Oscillators
    6/13/2018

    Many RF applications use phase noise as the determining factor of a system’s performance. In our last video today at IMS 2018, Mel Mehert from MtronPTI discusses how to reduce vibration sensitivity on an OCXO, and showed us an illustration of phase noise of the XO55310 100 MHz Evibe OCXO.
