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.

Solid State Cooking Oven Uses RF Energy
NXP's custom made solid-state cooker uses RF energy to heat food safely and with targeted accuracy, as can be seen visually with a grid of LEDs they've placed inside the cooking space in this demo.
Play Music on an RF Plasma Spark Plug
This automotive RF plasma spark plug from NXP was set up to play music by modulating the output power with the audio signal - we played "Pompeii" by Bastille as a demonstration, and put the audio to the test using the Shazam music recognition app.
Anritsu Wideband Device Characterization from 70 kHz to 145 GHz
Anritsu's latest VNA system covers frequencies over 100 GHz in a footprint comparable to a deck of cards. Using the capabilities of their VectorStar ME7838 vector network analyzer (VNA) with their non-linear transmission line mmW Modules, this whole range can be tested without waveguides or switching components.
Highly Portable Vector Reflectometer
Jean-Jacques DeLisle, Technical Editor at Microwaves & RF, demonstrates Copper Mountain's small form factor USB-based vector reflectometer, which is useful for portable testing and direct testing on antennae feeds.
Rapid Prototyping PCBs Using UV Laser Delamination
Jean-Jacques DeLisle, Technical Editor at Microwaves & RF, explains how a UV laser can be used in rapid prototyping of PCBs. The system demonstrated is the LPKF ProtoLaser U3, a 6-Watt UV laser rapid prototyping system.
