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.

Looking Back at the 2014 IMS Exhibition
Many significant new products across a wide range of technologies were introduced at the recent IMS 2014 exhibition in Tampa, Fla.
Unmanned Aerial Systems’ Capabilities Soar
As the uses for unmanned aerial systems continue to expand, the variety of payloads and technologies incorporated into these platforms is creating industry-changing advances in mobile communications.
Enhanced MEMS Oscillators Catch Up to Crystals 1
The race for ever-smaller and higher-frequency components for the RF/microwave industry is forcing innovations on every component in the signal stream. MEMS technology enhanced by CMOS processes could be the ticket to smaller, lower-cost, and higher-frequency oscillators.
Filter Assemblies Boost Performance
Many RF/microwave applications require far more than a single filter. Using precision assemblies to combine filters, filter functions, and other passive/active components can lead to a higher-performance solution than embedding filters in existing designs.
Power-Amplifier Systems Get Smarter
RF/microwave power-amplifier systems traditionally have been chosen based on their SWaP-C characteristics. But recently, factors like intelligent features are being added to the mix.
Detailed Thermal Models Benefit IC Package Designs
Accurately predicting the temperature profile of an integrated circuit could lead to higher reliability, prevent latch-up, and improve performance.
RF Power MOSFETs Get Put to the VSWR Test
To ruggedize an RF power MOSFET, testing on a variety of load conditions is necessary. Under rigorous VSWR testing, failure mechanisms can be discerned and designs can be improved.
Interview with a Living Legend: Dr. Stephen Maas, President, Nonlinear Technologies Inc.
Dr. Stephen Maas has an extensive background in R&D of low noise and nonlinear microwave circuits and systems. He also is a prolific author and educator, chief scientist at AWR, and founder of Nonlinear Technologies.
60-GHz PLL-Based Modulator Boosts Radar Applications
Significant research efforts have been made to realize a cost-effective CMOS IC radar for automotive, security, and presence-detection applications.
Dual-ISM-Band On-Body Antenna Relies on Textiles
Textile-based wearable antennas could help to enable advanced solutions for firefighting, rescue systems, and embedded medical devices.
Optical-to-Electrical Terahertz Link Enables SISO Communication
Many photonic, terahertz, and RF solutions have been proposed to solve the accelerating bandwidth demand of mobile-communications technologies. For example, optical wireless communications (OWC) using near infrared (NIR) technology can support the necessary data rates.
