  1. Boron-Doped CVD Diamond As An Electrically Conductive Heat Spreader In RF/Microwave Applications

    Viewed over a wide spectrum of frequencies, BDD shows promise across a range of electronics, from solid state RF PAs and advanced application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), to 5G wireless and phased array radar.

  2. EMI Filtering For High-Reliability Applications

    Electromagnetic interference (EMI), or electrical noise, is generated by everything from cellphones to solar flares and can make accurate signal transmission as difficult as trying to have a clear conversation in a noisy room. To improve signal clarity in electronic circuits, device designers turn to EMI suppression filters.

  3. Role Call: Senior Field Application Engineer

    Role Call, a series on RF Globalnet, takes a “peek behind the curtain” to help answer the questions related to different jobs and career paths in the RF and microwave industry. Recently, Kenny Lee, Senior Field Application Engineer at LitePoint, took time to answer some questions about his occupation.

  4. Integration Considerations: Software-Defined Antenna Technology

    Proper integration of a software-defined antenna is key to obtaining maximum benefit for both 4G and 5G communication systems where MIMO antenna systems are required.

  5. Role Call: Principal Systems Design Engineer

    Role Call is a series on RF Globalnet that will explore each of these topics with a “peek behind the curtain” at different jobs and career paths in the RF and microwave industry. Our most recent subject is Trushal Vijaykumar Chokshi, the Principal Systems Design Engineer at SiTime. Trushal specializes in the development of high-throughput systems for micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) resonators and oscillators, relying on a background in physics and electrical engineering with a focus on MEMS and analog circuits.

  6. Millimeter-Wave Technology Overview

    The millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology market is on an upward trend, continuously adapting to new applications. This Q&A covers the basics of mmWave technology and presents what dB Control offers in this market.

  7. Threading The Needle: In The Field, Precision Is Everything

    In this eighth edition of Electronic Military & Defense, we look at both the critical importance of military precision — in the literal sense — and a few of the technologies enabling warfighters to achieve the desired level of exactitude.

  8. Electronification’s Impact On Medical Device Manufacturers

    Rising demand for electronic components -- driven by the automotive, defense, aerospace, and industrial manufacturing industries -- could create supply challenges like price volatility, counterfeiting, relabeling, selling out-of-date parts, and double- or triple-booking orders

  9. Role Call: Antenna Engineer

    Role Call is a series on RF Globalnet that explores each of these questions with a “peek behind the curtain” at different jobs and career paths in the RF and microwave industry. Recently, Dr. Andela Zaric, Antenna Engineer at Taoglas, took time to answer some questions about her occupation.
