Space has been called “the final frontier” in both fiction and reality, and it does represent a challenging market for many RF/microwave companies. Along with high reliability, there is also the expectation that space-bound components...
Designing circuits and systems for high-power applications requires a good deal of imagination. Knowing the limits of the different parts that make up a high-power component or system can aid the process enormously.
Efficiency has become one of the more important specifications for power amplifier (PA) specifiers, almost on a par with gain and output power.
These highly integrated circuits and modules are designed to provide short-range wireless networking functions, all the while using low-power sleep modes for long-term operation.
