Microwave circuit designers have long depended upon the tunability of different components (such as resonators) to optimize the final performance of a design (such as a radio transceiver). Traditionally, circuits have been based on solid material...
Higher power densities and frequencies are pushing packages to their limits, while emerging wireless applications such as IoT and 5G crave lower-cost housings.
Circuit-fabrication services provide miniature dimensions with circuit traces as narrow as 3 µm on single- and multilayer circuit boards.
Printed-circuit-board (PCB) materials are the focus of product displays and presentations from Rogers Corp. Visitors to Booth No. 2039 will have a chance to learn more about RO4835 circuit laminates, with outstanding low dielectric loss tange...
Understanding the impact of selecting different materials and manufacturing processes can separate standard high-power resistive components from those designed and tested for true high-reliability applications.
Sorting through the specifications helps when selecting a circuit material for microwave, millimeter-wave, and even high-speed-digital circuits.
Rectangular substrate integrated waveguide is a transmission-line format that supports planar circuits capable of operating to microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies.
Gallium nitride is exerting its strength in myriad communications applications, and suppliers are trying to keep pace by developing solutions for next-generation systems.
As microwave signals expand into automotive-safety and IoT remote-sensing types of applications, advanced technologies will be needed at reasonable performance/price ratios.
