Wideband frequency conversion is required in many high-frequency systems, and wideband frequency converters are the components that perform the required frequency translation over broad bandwidths. They are implemented in a number of different...
As designers consider the performance tradeoffs between direct-conversion and superheterodyne implementations, a newer direct RF-sampling technique has entered the fray.
This article, the first in a two-part series, examines various receiver implementations along with the characteristics that describe receiver performance.
Components based on SAW and BAW technology both employ acoustic waves but in different ways and with different performance levels, especially at higher frequencies.
A growing number of PXI/PXIe modular RF/microwave test instruments provide the measurement capabilities and performance levels once possible only with benchtop instruments.
