FODL (fiber optic delay line) systems eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming outdoor range tests for radio and radar systems. This white paper outlines how FODL systems’ accuracy, repeatability, and reliability can save money and time when conducting these tests and also explains for delay line core technology works.
This application note describes the theory and method used by Custom MMIC to characterize the second order intercept point (IP2) of its wideband amplifiers.
This article discusses how K&L Microwave and Dow-Key Microwave’s products are used to monitor spurious emissions of systems at the design, type approval testing, and production stages to ensure compliance with existing regulatories established by regulatory agencies.
802.11ad is a newer WLAN standard that offers throughput rates up to 7 Gbps. To achieve these speeds, the technology uses newly allocated mmWave ISM bands, specifically 57 to 71 GHz.
This application note presents a hybrid simulation-/measurement- based development methodology used to achieve enhanced amplifier performance with linear form of pre-distortion. The approach shown may be combined with DPD to achieve an even better result. It may also be used to lower DPD requirements.
