Application Guide to RF Coaxial Connectors and Cables

There is a wide variety of coaxial connectors and cables available for use in the RF and Microwave spectrum. While often not much thought is given to these essential components, a misstep here can result in undesirable system degradation.

Ultra Low Noise Amplifiers for Infrastructure Receiver Applications

Amplifiers used in wireless infrastructure receiver applications have the key requirements of low noise, high linearity, and unconditional stability. In order to meet these needs, Skyworks has developed a new family of low noise amplifiers (LNAs) implemented in 0.5 μm enhancement mode (E-Mode) pHEMT.

The Pros and Cons of Dual-Band RF Amplifiers

In an effort to cover the relatively broad frequency ranges mandated by most modern EMC immunity standards, some amplifier vendors have resorted to combining two amplifier modules within a common enclosure. These so called dual-band amplifiers use frequency band switching to achieve an overall broader frequency band than either amplifier module could cover by itself. This application note will highlight both the benefits and drawbacks of this technique.

A Plethora of Ports: Making Sense of the Different Types of Ports in EM Planar Simulators

April 29, 2010 - This new white paper from AWR® provides a fundamental understanding of ports so that designers can select them properly in the process of circuit simulation. It traces the evolution of ports in EM simulation and examines all aspects of how they can be employed to make design simulation practical.
