Microwaves & RF

Nancy Friedrich began her career in technical publishing in 1998. After a stint with sister publication Electronic Design as Chief Copy Editor, Nancy worked as Managing Editor of Embedded Systems Development. She then became a Technology Editor at Wireless Systems Design, an offshoot of Microwaves & RF. Nancy has called the microwave space “home” since 2005.

How Do You Stack Up?
Welcome to this year’s annual compensation survey. In surveying our audience across our family of brands, we found a number of similar findings.
This Is Your Brain on IoT
As more of our infrastructure becomes connected and interactive, the U.S. and many other countries are expected to graduate from in-depth patient tracking and monitoring to diagnosis and health maintenance.
The IMS 2015 Checklist 1
It’s that time of year again. For those in the microwave and RF industry, the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS)—with all of its conferences, workshops, trade show, and exhibition offerings—is something we look forward to all year long.
Reaching that Last Mile
If Google is successful in providing Internet services to the non-served “last mile,” the firm may gain a greater hand in the telecommunications and related businesses.
M&A Deals Jumpstart IoT
With the Internet of Things (IoT) in place, devices will be so interconnected that they will open communications between ourselves and our homes, appliances, cars, medical devices, and more.
Before Embracing the Future, Secure Today 1
We’re at the dawn of an exciting new age in which everything will be connected—homes, cars, and more. The question is whether it will be secure.
Get with the Times, Barbie
Everyone knows that Barbie has been just about everything career-wise in her decades of existence (despite her impossible proportions and oddly angled feet). Having had rather rare professions, such as being an astronaut, it should be an easy leap for her to be an engineer.
Don’t Trust that Tower
Rogue cell towers have been linked to potential national security breaches.
Cascade Microtech: Robust Calibrated Measurement at Frequencies from 140 GHz to 1.1 THz
Millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength on-wafer probes and associated accessories for metrology-grade measurement of devices and materials with frequencies from 140 GHz to 1.1 THz. The probes offer low insertion loss, as well as excellent probe tip and sample visibility. Probe stations can be configured with programmable positioners to allow automated and repeatable sub-micron positioning during TRL calibration to ensure the highest precision at the probe tip.
Cascade Microtech: Wafer-level Measurement Solution for Device Characterization up to 110 GHz
Guaranteed configuration, installation and support in a pre-validated system configuration for accurate and repeatable wafer-level device characterization. This is essential for device modeling, technology development, process development and specification, process monitoring, component specification and pilot manufacturing.
Cascade Microtech: Cost-effective Precision 150 mm Probe System for mmW
The EPS150MMW is a dedicated manual probing solution that comes with everything you need to achieve accurate measurement results in the shortest time, with maximum confidence. The system incorporates best-known methods for probing up to sub-THz frequencies. The backlash-free, high-precision X-Y-Z movement of mmW and RF positioners, integrated planarization, and a contact separation drive with 1 μm repeatability, enable precise probe placement and contact repeatability comparable to semi-automatic systems.
Technology Gives Back
For all of the amazing breakthroughs that have taken place in recent years, prosthetics still owe a great deal to some very old technological advancements.
De-Clutter Your Test Bench With All-In-One RF System
Freescale demonstrated its multifunctional, modular RF power tool at IMS 2014.
Freescale's RF Test Bench in a Box
Freescale's RF Power Tool System helps reduce the complexity of your RF component evaluation by combining c complete suite of RF test bench devices into a compact system, saving space and money.
2014 Best Of Microwaves & RF Industry Awards
During this year’s International Microwaves Symposium (IMS 2014) show in Tampa, FL, Microwaves & RF presented the second annual “Best Of Microwaves & RF Industry Awards". We asked members of our community to vote on their top choices for BEST website, blog, video, educational tools, and more.
