Successful Small Diameter Bomb II Tests Augur Production Phase
Upgraded electronics for the SDB II center around Raytheon’s tri-mode seeker, which fuses millimeter-wave radar, uncooled infrared imaging, and digital semi-active laser sensors on a single gimbal.
Converter Simplifies Replacement Of Obsolete ANSI x3.28 Controllers
Up to now, swapping out obsolete controllers that use the ANSI x3.28 protocol has proven impractical because production systems would require modification to work with a modern Modbus RTU-compatible controller.
Coaxial Contacts Bring RF To VPX Platforms
SV Microwave says its latest floating SMPM coaxial contacts ensure excellent RF performance in any VPX platform mating condition.
Plans Detailed for Domestic Comsat
“Pilot” satellite would carry 24 transponders. Up to 36 ground antennas involved.
Microwaves & RF reports from IMS 2012
IMS 2012, Day 3: A Sea of Semiconductor Vendors Plumbing as a metaphor for microwaves Lou Frenzel summarizes some of what he saw and heard from the many semiconductor vendors that were represented at this year's event. June 21, ...

International Microwave Symposium 2010
Videos from IMS 2010 The IEEE's 2010 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) was packed with people, new products, and cutting-edge technology. Microwaves & RF covered the show from all angles, to give design engineers a roadmap for the week's most ...
Sizing Up Benefits Of Wafer-Scale Packaging
Wafer-scale packaging (WSP) is a bold new approach to housing semiconductors. It uses a semiconductor process to create a package around an ICa package that is only slightly larger than the chip itself. It can be used with both silicon and GaAs ICs to ...
Avago RF VMMK Devices Improve Performance by Reducing Parasitic Inductance and Capacitance
Packaging has always significantly impacted on microwave IC and amplifier performance. In most cases, the inherent parasitic capacitance and inductance of the package lead frame and wire bonds set a limit to circuit performance. Avago Technologies ...
White Paper: Fiber Optic Transceivers in Basestation Applications
Base station transceivers with greater bandwidth are in demand. Fiber optic links give cost effective, high bandwidth new capacity with more flexibility than copper links. Fiber links make system modifications and future upgrades simpler than would be ...
White Paper: Integration Creates Compact CDMA RF Front End with GPS Capability
In this whitepaper, design requirements, best practice PCB layout, component selection and system design will be addressed. A highly integrated CDMA plus GPS RF front end design with measured performance characteristics will be used as a concrete ...
White Paper: GaAs-Based Surface Mount Wafer Scale Package MMICs for DC to 45 GHz Applications
Packaging has always been the "Achilles Heal" of extracting the maximum microwave performance out of any IC technology. The inherent parasitic capacitance and inductance associated with bond wires, lead frames, and encapsulating dielectric materials ...
Mobile World Congress 2010
Staged in the Spanish city of Barcelona, the 2010 Mobile World Congress provides an international forum for over 1300 companies to present the products and technology that will shape the future of mobile communications. In addition to its huge ...
