New Developments in EW and Signals Intelligence
There have a been a lot of developments in the Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence markets in the last few years as higher power, wideband hardware has become more mainstream and artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML) have advanced on the software side. This eBook reviews some of the recent advances in smarter, more flexible hardware to gather and jam signals from these emerging threats. The first couple of articles review the state of EW and how AI and ML are enabling new solutions. The next article covers open system architectures for military applications and how they are enabling next generation defense systems. The next two articles cover drone detection and defeat technologies starting with systems that can adapt to their environment followed by an article about emerging drone technologies. The last article briefly covers the RTX 2684 26 GHz RF Sentinel™ Intelligent Signal Scanning small form factor recorder.
RF & Microwave Components for SatCom Applications
Whether prompted by the convenience of small size, the fuel savings from lighter weight or the smaller wavelengths of higher frequencies, size is on an inexorable decline. Moore’s Law is the archetype defining the shrinking of semiconductor technology, yet it would not be possible without other components following the same trend, particularly the passive devices that filter and route the signals processed by the ICs. This eBook compiled by Knowles explores some of the market and technology trends driving the demand for higher frequencies and smaller size. Beginning with an overview of the classic Wilkinson power divider and combiner designs, it also covers various other SATCOM related component technologies ranging from PCBs to high speed converters to phased arrays plus test challenges in this area.
Overcoming 5G Test Challenges
There really is not a home for articles dealing with the challenges of the highest volume chips and their testing for high volume ATE. To serve this market, ATE companies, like industry microwave/millimeter wave instrument leader Teradyne, have developed instrumentation with features that create stability and repeatability at very high channel counts with reduced user complexity. But for this eBook, we did pull together some of the “best of MWJ articles” that talk about similar issues for you to whet your appetite including:
- Navigating the 5G NR Standards, by Sheri DeTomasi, Keysight Technologies
- Challenges for Effective and Realistic 5G OTA Testing, by Miguel Á. García-Fernández, EMITE Ingeniería S.L. and David A. Sánchez-Hernández, Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena
- Significant Test Time Reduction and Equipment Utilization in 5G RF Production Testing, by Sascha Laumann, Rohde & Schwarz
