  1. Challenges With mmWave High Power Amplifiers
    6/6/2019

    Wrapping up the show here at IMS 2019, Mike Lee of dB Control addresses some of the challenges that engineers face when looking for mmWave high power amplifiers. These challenges can include acquiring higher frequencies, higher broadband capabilities, smaller sizes, and more.

  2. Key Non-Technical Roles Often Overlooked By Engineering Firms
    6/6/2019

    Nearly half of all open positions in a technical firm should be non-technical positions. This is often something that is overlooked in business start-ups, small businesses, or the more traditional companies in the RF industry. Wendy Shu, CEO and President of SAGE Millimeter, talks about the critical roles that every technical company should have in order to have the most success and growth in their fields.

  3. Custom MMIC Amplifier With World’s Best Noise Figure At 0.6 dB
    6/6/2019

    Chris Gregoire from Custom MMIC introduces their ultra-low noise amplifier with the world’s best noise figure at 0.6 dB, and high gain capabilities for the best performance available.

  4. mmWave Filtering For 5G Applications
    6/6/2019

    Tim Brauner of Knowles Precision Devices (DLI) introduces their Ka-band frequency filters, and other custom designs to help solve these filtering challenges.

  5. End To End RF Over Fiber Connectivity Solution Demonstration
    6/6/2019

    Mike Bitting of HUBER+SUHNER demonstrates their end to end RF over Fiber connectivity solution. This solution stands out in its combination of optics with RF components, making a customized solution for a variety of applications including satellite ground station applications, RF test lab applications, or any application where long, obtrusive cables would be better suited to optical transitions.

  6. How The Connected Car Market Is Growing
    6/6/2019

    What does it mean to have a connected car? Depending on who you are, it could mean connectivity to friends, family, or entertainment, safety and traffic control, or you could be focused on vehicle performance and onboard diagnostics. Steven Smith of Guerrilla RF discusses what the connected car means for the automotive semiconductor market.

  7. Considerations For Sourcing Phase Match Cable Assemblies
    6/6/2019

    Maddiel Gonzalez of MegaPhase talks about the parameters in sourcing phase match cable assemblies, especially phase-stable cables. To further help in assessing the phase match performance, MegaPhase offers this calculator tool to assess the phase match tolerance in a comfortable manufacturing scenario.

  8. Challenges Customers Face In Communications Infrastructure And Aerospace, Defense, And Satcom Applications
    6/6/2019

    Wolfspeed has positioned itself to offer solutions to these challenges by delivering products made with silicon carbide, and by announcing their $1 billion investment in silicon carbide and GaN technologies.

  9. Introducing Industry’s First True Broadband, Super-Fast, Ultra-Compact Pin Diode Switch
    6/5/2019

    Corry Micronics is focusing on offering their custom capabilities to customers’ RF components and systems. As an example of this, Todd Peterman highlights the industry’s first true broadband (2 – 18 GHz) high-power switch with high speeds up to 150 nanoseconds and a small form factor for increased design flexibility.
