Jean-Jacques DeLisle
Technical Editor

Jean-Jacques graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he completed his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering. In his studies, Jean-Jacques focused on Control Systems Design, Mixed-Signal IC Design, and RF Design. His research focus was in smart-sensor platform design for RF connector applications for the telecommunications industry. During his research, Jean-Jacques developed a passion for the field of RF/microwaves and expanded his knowledge by doing R&D for the telecommunications industry. Journalism was always a passion of Jean-Jacques’ as well. He enjoyed writing for RIT’s university publication in addition to working on white papers, patents, and technical articles.

Jean-Jacques is excited to cover the latest trends in research, technology, and products. He is also determined to help engineers gain access to information services, which will aid in the design process while preventing many engineers from having to "reinvent the wheel"--a problem that is so common to the field.

InP Resonant Tunneling Diodes Drop LNA Noise Figure
By using resonant tunneling diodes in a negative-differential-conductance-style LNA, researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) were able to reach a high gain-to-DC power ratio with a very low noise figure.
MIMO Radar Could Outperform Phased-Array Radar
In Sweden, researchers studied the potential benefits of spatially diverse MIMO radar compared to standard phased-array radar.
De-Embed Parasitics from Millimeter-Wave ICs
Using a half-thru transmission-line method, researchers from Grenoble, France, were able to accurately de-embed pad-interconnect and parasitic effects at millimeter-wave frequencies.

Tips for Biasing MMIC Amplifiers
Not all applications can be served by pre-biased MMIC amplifiers. As a result, knowing the proper techniques to bias a variety of amplifier types could ease the transition to using MMIC components.
Multi-test mainframe
Cut the Cost of Wireless Manufacturing Test
With the increase in electronic devices that incorporate wireless technology, reducing the time and cost of test is of ever greater importance and an even more significant challenge.
PC-Driven Test Instruments Pick Up Speed
As more markets and industries embrace RF/microwave and wireless technologies, there is a growing need for low-cost, low-complexity, and easily incorporated test and measurement equipment.

Automate RF Matrix Switching for Wireless Test
The automation of RF test systems—especially for the verification testing of wireless handsets and network devices—promises to save time while improving accuracy for common repetitive test configurations. RF switching matrix devices could be a critical aspect in improving the reliability factor of these setups.
For Long-Range Communications, Is Narrowband “It”?
For reliable and efficient long-range RF communications, narrowband systems may be a prime choice. A comparison of spectral efficiency, coexistence, and battery lifetime between narrowband communications and coding-gain techniques could demonstrate narrowband technique’s superiority for certain applications.
