A Software Package for Electromagnetic Design Optimization

Computer simulation is essential for the rapid design of efficient RF and microwave components. Not only can ‘what if?’ questions be posed and answered—sometimes in seconds—but once a viable design concept has been identified it can be optimized to achieve cost and performance targets. To facilitate this, parametric modeling...

A New Generation of Microwave Counters

Traditionally frequency counters have fallen into two main categories—general-purpose counters/timers and microwave counters. The former typically measure frequency from parts of a hertz to 200 to 300 MHz and can display frequency, time interval and period. Some general-purpose counters also provide ratio, phase comparison and low frequency burst measurement...
