Coaxial open-circuit standards are found in many of today’s commercially available vector network analyzer (VNA) calibration kits. 1,2 They are most commonly used as standards in calibration schemes such as short-open-load-through (SOLT). In this capacity, they are assumed to have known characteristics, that is, they are assumed to provide...Read More

Metal-clad Fibers with Significant Weight Savings and EMI Performance
Micro-Coax, Pottstown, PA
Micro-Coax is now offering the ARACON“ family of metal-clad fibers that combines the conductivity of metal with the strength, light weight and flexibility of Kevlar® aramid fibers. The ARACON fibers are a superior lightweight alternative to traditional nickel-plated copper wire for EMI shielding. Replacing standard wire with ARACON offers significant weight savings without sacrificing EMI performance, as well as other benefits that copper and alloy wires cannot match.

DC to 26.5 GHz Size 8 Coaxial Contacts that Fit Standard MIL-C-38999 Connectors
Times Microwave Systems, Wallingford, CT
Introduction to a series of coaxial contact designs capable of operating broadband from DC to 26.5 GHz
Times Microwave Systems has introduced a new series of Size 8 coaxial contact designs that fit all standard MIL-C-38999 connector shells and are capable of operating broadband from DC to 26.5 GHz with exceptional electrical performance.
In this article, a design of custom bias tees to be used in a pulsed-bias, pulsed-RF measurement system is described. The bias tee design is such that the DC path allows bias pulses to pass through to the device unchanged, while still allowing RF measu...
