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.

Integrated 60-GHz Transceiver Conquers Four-Channel Communications
This 60 GHz, 16QAM transceiver includes the RF front end, antenna, and analog and digital baseband circuitry to achieve four-channel wireless communication for QPSK and 16QAM with low power consumption.
Interview: Greg Maury, President, Maury Microwave
For Maury Microwave's President, business is a family tradition stretching back three generations.
Active Wearable Antenna Serves GPS And Iridium Applications
This active wearable antenna has a chip LNA and discrete hybrid coupler directly integrated onto the textile antenna.
Glass DRA Serves As Light Cover
Using omnidirectional, hollow rectangular-glass DRAs, a dual-function glass DRA proves that it can also serve as a light cover.
Understand HSPA+ Concepts And Measurements
Given the budget advantages, many operators have chosen HSPA+ over Long Term Evolution (LTE) as their short-term upgrade strategy.
Software And Modeling Unite To Raise Yield
By combining passive component models with EDA software, this solution promises to improve design flow efficiency while paving the way for first pass design success.
Experiments Begin For Communications Testbed
In addition to raising its understanding of software-defined-radio (SDR) technologies and how they may aid NASA’s communications, this technology is expected to provide both cost savings and efficiency.
Manpack Radio Calls On-Orbit MUOS Satellite
Using the same cell-phone technology that powers commercial smartphones, the PRC-155 Manpack has demonstrated the capability to communicate with the MUOS space-ground network.
Smartphones Prove Their Worth As Satellites
Three smartphones, which are destined to become low-cost satellites, rode to space last month on the maiden flight of Orbital Science Corp.’s Antares rocket. It was launched from NASA’s Wallops Island Flight Facility in Virginia.
GaN-On-Diamond Breakthrough Promises To Shrink Transistors
The feasibility of GaN-on-diamond HEMT devices has been proven with the successful transfer of a semiconductor epitaxial overlay onto a synthetic diamond substrate.
Satellites As Watchdogs
Although many people are concerned with the privacy issues arising from monitoring applications, such capabilities can be used to better protect our habitat and its animal inhabitants.
In Memoriam: RLC Electronics’ Founder, Alan Borck
RLC Electronics reflects on the life and legacy of Founder Alan Borck, who passed away on March 1.
Connected Cars Get Green Light
Support is growing for car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication standards, creating traction in Europe that should quickly widen to encompass most of the world.
Cobra Judy Replacement Radars Pass Test
The Cobra Judy Replacement program is tasked with delivering a high-performing ship-board radar capability for use by the US Navy, Air Force, and the nation.
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.
