  • Using Microwave And Millimeter Wave Radiometers

    Microwave radiometric sensors are devices used to detect electromagnetic energy. This white paper expresses the reasoning for certain radiometer calibrations and other modes of operation in regards to the sensor’s subsystems.

Choosing Blocking Capacitors – It’s More Than Just Values

Capacitors are a fundamental building block for RF and microwave systems as they are often used to create filters, generate DC protection, and build bypass networks. Designers often use approximate equations to predict capacitor values and find the final RF performance. However, as a system constantly requires higher performance levels, these assumptions are no longer valid. This article discusses how to improve RF performance by using fewer capacitors that block DC and pass AC current, and how to choose these capacitors based on real world performance.

Mall Communication Solutions

At shopping malls, consumers also are able to find various types of entertainment, dining options, spa services, childcare, etc. This white paper presents DeltaNode’s Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) solution for meeting these wireless communications difficulties.

RF Power Measurements In The Field

Measuring RF power in a field environment can be accomplished accurately and inexpensively. It also involves a great deal of care and proper training to ensure equipment is accurately measured. Either way, accurate field power measurements will ensure transmitting equipment is operating properly.

Rotman Lens Design And Simulation In Software

Since its invention in the early 1960s, the Rotman Lens has proven itself to be a useful beamformer for designers of electronically scanned arrays. Inherent in its design is a true time delay phase shift capability that is independent of frequency and removes the need for costly phase shifters to steer a beam over wide angles. This article uses the developed software to design and analyze a microstrip Rotman Lens for the Ku band.
