Learn the Fundamentals of EMC Pre-Compliance

EMC compliance testing is not only important but required of all electronic devices before it can be brought to market. This ensures that your device does not interfere with the behavior of other surrounding electronic devices and is also not susceptible to interference. Learn how to avoid design rework by proofreading your device with EMC pre-compliance testing to ensure you stay on schedule.

Designing a Compact Ridged Waveguide Filter with CST Filter Designer 3D

Multi-mode cavity filters offer high power in a compact device, but are difficult to design by conventional methods. This article shows how the filter synthesis tool Filter Designer 3D can be used to design and tune a multi-mode compact ridged waveguide filter to meet stringent specifications.

5G NR Primer for Amplifier and Filter Design

Future communication systems will comprise many diverse systems that will be implemented with a wide array of solutions. Providing increased mobile broadband traffic and higher data rates, as demanded by end users, will require adding more spectrum, making that spectrum more efficient, and building out ultra-dense network configurations.
