Formerly available in print form, the Blue Cell Designer's Handbook can now be downloaded free of charge from the home page of Mini-Circuits' web site (see below). Blue Cell is a low-temperature-cofired-ceramic (LTCC) circuit technology that...
A new Xinger has been added to Anaren's (East Syracuse, NY) comprehensive line of compact signal-processing components. The new 3-dB hybrid coupler operates from 800 to 1000 MHz and is designed for close matching of the coefficient of thermal...
Specifying an operational amplifier (opamp) just became easier, with the latest upgrade to the WEBENCH online design environment from National Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA). The WEBENCH's Amplifiers Made Simple design and selection tool allows...
The overcompensated feedforward (OCFF) approach to amplifier linearization can help save size and cost and improve the overall efficiency of linear power-amplifier systems.
Precise FIR digital filters can be designed with the help of a popular mathematical modeling program and an understanding of basic performance trade-offs.
This design approach helps analyzer microstrip inset-fed patch antennas and helps to locate the exact inset length for 50-? input impedance.
Shrinking a transmission-line resonators length can improve its quality factor while saving valuable printed-circuit-board real estate.
A pair of active double-balanced mixers provides the frequency range and linearity needed for a host of broadcast and wireless communications applications.
These compact circulators and isolators are designed for high isolation, low insertion loss, and generous power-handling capabilities for UMTS base-station designs.
This series of instrument-grade frequency synthesizers offer list-mode frequency switching and low noise at frequencies from 10 MHz to 40 GHz.
