Combining MMIC Reflectionless Filters to Create Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Bandpass Filters

Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radio is defined as any RF technology utilizing a bandwidth of greater than ¼ the center frequency or a bandwidth greater than 500 MHz [1] [2]. While UWB has been a known technology since the end of the 19th century, restrictions on transmission to prevent interference with narrow-band, continuous wave signals have limited its applications to defense and relatively few specially licensed operators [1].

New Space Applications Add to Mix of Space-Qualified Crystal Oscillators

The low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite realm has spawned an entirely new class of devices requiring innovations in crystal oscillator products to meet performance and price benchmarks. Manufacturers of space-qualified crystal oscillators, like Q-Tech, have developed a range of devices (XO, TCXO, VCXO, and others) to provide optimized price and performance for each orbital application. This paper will delve into the subject with the objective of providing an informed understanding of the elements that go into device selection.
