Microwave Integrated Circuits: New Achievements from a “Mature” Technology

For more than 60 years, microwave technology has been synonymous with Microwave Integrated Circuits (MICs). The first MICs appeared in the 1940s, just over a decade after the first microwave circuits were introduced in waveguide form. Now, even though monolithic MICs (MMICs) have revolutionized (and made possible) most of today’s wireless-enabled devices, products based on MIC fabrication techniques remain the bulk of the output of the microwave industry.

Understanding Long-Term Evolution Fundamentals and Measurement Challenges

With release of the latest version of Release 8 of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in June 2009, the core LTE specification has stabilized. 3GPP Release 8 also encompasses a considerable number of interim enhancements embodied in Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (eHSPA), also known as HSPA+.
