Power Demands Put the Pressure on Packaging (.PDF Download)

May 26, 2016

Microwave packaging is a term that covers a lot of ground (and relies on a reliable ground plane), and includes many configurations and material compositions. Such packages range in size from microscopic to cabinet-sized for system assemblies. But whatever the size or type, all microwave packages are designed to protect the electronic devices, components, and circuits within them. Depending on the materials and construction, they may be rated for different levels of temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, and input power. What follows is a brief glimpse at some of the different package types used across the RF/microwave industry...
