There are a variety of techniques and materials used to optimize the performance of complex filter structures. Many of these structures are also parts of larger assemblies used in applications from telecommunications to military.
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....More
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....More
For applications that require healthy signal levels through 18 GHz, model BME69189-50 is a compact broadband power amplifier from COMTECH PST capable of as much as 50 W continuous output power from 6 to 18 GHz....More
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....More
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....More
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....More
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....More
