LTCC technology involves the production of multilayer circuits from ceramic substrate tapes or sheets. Conductive, dielectric, and resistive pastes are applied on each sheet or tape as needed, and then the sheets are laminated-together and fired ...
By combining sophisticated circuit techniques with advanced LTCC material technology, the SIM line of extremely compact, extremely broadband mixers is born.
The use of unpackaged transistors and some clever circuit matching and signal-processing techniques help to shrink the size and cut the cost of a 100-W amplifier developed for pulsed S-band radar applications.
Practical implementations anchor a design approach that uses one additional shunt resistor to stabilize the transistors in low-noise-amplifier circuits.
These components make the most of advanced FBAR technology and Microcap chip-scale packaging techniques to pack a pair of filters into a tiny housing.
While remaining vital for traditional applications like radar, new types of antennas with higher gain and different forms are being developed to support standards like UWB, WiMAX, and UMTS.
The trend in filter design has followed the pattern for most of electronics: shrink the package while maintaining performance and high-power-handling capabilities.
Cables, connectors, and combinations of the two are available in almost every form and function. For today’s engineer, this fact can translate into a lot of time spent just to narrow down which transmission-line components could satisfy his or her...
Two different bandpass filter structures were evaluated for achieving good harmonic suppression at microwave frequencies.
These innovative voltage-controlled oscillators make the most of multi-coupled slow-wave planar resonators to achieve low phase-noise performance at a fraction of the size and power of YIGs.
