Combiners for Doherty Power Amplifier Architectures

Doherty combiner product line covers major communication bands ranging from 700 MHz to 2700 MHz. Each model is optimized for the center frequency of targeted frequency band. However, as new spectrum is being released, the pre‐designed standard models can be tuned in customer applications to meet performance. This document provides guidelines to tune these standard models for off‐band applications.

Selecting RF Chip Capacitors for Wireless

With today's advancements in wireless technology, greater emphasis is being placed on component performance. This article will provide a discussion of ceramic and porcelain chip capacitors and understanding their behavior in RF product designs. They are an excellent choice for wireless applications where volumetric efficiency, reliability and RF performance are an absolute must.

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. Given that typical RF systems are comprised of any number of items, e.g. RF generators, amplifiers, attenuators, power meters, couplers, antennas, etc., it is not uncommon that a great deal of thought is given to these “high end devices while mundane items such as connectors and cables are often treated as an afterthought".

Selecting Ferrite Circulators for Radar Applications

Radar markets continue to forecast positive growth, and Skyworks Solutions offers a range of products designed specifically for these expanding markets, including materials for phase shifter applications and ferrite circulators.

Improving Measurement Accuracy for High Frequency RF Connectors

Improving the accuracy of your microwave test and measurement equipment becomes increasingly important when high frequency devices are used in the transmission paths of radio, cellular, satellite and digital communications. This discussion helps to solve problems with measurement errors during and after calibration of your microwave test instrument.

Minimizing PIM Generation From RF Cables and Connectors

Understanding mechanical tolerances, coaxial design details and connector materials used in cable assemblies helps produce communications equipment with the lowest levels of passive intermodulation (PIM).
