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.

TES Detecting Device Cuts Noise Equivalent Power
This group of researchers found ways to compensate for the combined heating effect arising from the fact that the thermal relaxation time of the TES film is much longer than the period of the RF current.
Modular SoC Design Integrates RF Transceiver In 32-nm Process
This system on a chip (SoC) integrates diverse digital, analog, and RF blocks on a single die, allowing the RF transceiver and associated RF front end to co-exist with the rest of the SoC while maintaining RF performance.
1-V Transceiver Exceeds Needs Of IEEE 802.15.6 Narrowband/BLE PHY
Fabricated in 0.13-micron CMOS and measuring just 5.9 square mm, this transceiver satisfies the IEEE 802.15.6 narrowband PHY standard as well as Bluetooth Low Energy to serve WBAN applications.
Eindhoven Is Proving Ground For Improving Traffic Flow
With greater connectivity, today’s automobiles generate a vast amount of data that can be used to enhance the driving experience while improving traffic condition and road safety.
REVEALED: Source Of Low-Frequency 1/f Noise
A large number of applications require acceptably low levels of 1/f noise, as it contributes to the phase noise of communication systems and limits sensor sensitivity and selectivity.
Cross-Spectral Phase Noise Is Measured On Terahertz Source
With traditional phase-measurement systems generally unable to perform beyond 125 GHz and spectrally pure sources increasing in frequency, the race is on to conquer phase-noise testing of terahertz sources.
Interview: Eran Eshed, Co-Founder, Altair Semiconductor
Eran Eshed, Co-Founder of Altair Semiconductor, offers his thoughts on the LTE landscape.
Drone Controversy Continues
A large part of the population—in the US and probably abroad—is concerned about drones, and their numbers and efforts are growing.
Photonics Modulator Reaches 60 Gb/s
By successfully creating silicon photonics modulators that use advanced modulation formats, IME and Fujikura are paving the way for future ultra-high-bandwidth long-haul telecommunications.
What’s Next For ST-Ericsson
In closing down the remaining parts of ST-Ericsson in the early part of 2013, Ericsson and STMicroelectronics believe they have found a strategy that maximizes their respective future prospects and growth plans.
Standards Update
From competing wireless power standards to the latest in Wi-Fi and ZigBee, the industry is pushing specifications forward to meet future technology and product needs.
Get A Handle On Oscillator Phase Noise And Jitter
When it comes to phase noise and jitter in oscillators, superior performance can be obtained with very high Q crystals and a good discrete topology.
Industry Mourns Loss Of Jerry Fishman, ADI CEO
On March 31, 2012, Jerry Fishman, Analog Devices’ CEO, passed away suddenly—leaving a company and an industry to grieve his loss.
Counterfeit Standard Singles Out Distributors
The AS6081 third-party certification will alter the procurement process for obsolete material and products with prohibitively long lead times that cannot be obtained from the original manufacturer or an authorized distributor.
RFMD Changes GaAs Strategy
By altering its GaAs sourcing, RFMD expects to optimize manufacturing capacity, lower costs, and generate more stable operating results.
