Advances in EM Analysis and Design Flows for RF System Development

RF/mixed signal PCB systems and heterogeneous SiP technologies are increasingly susceptible to delayed product development turnaround times due to higher frequencies and component densities. This paper overviews the Cadence design platforms that provide seamlessly integrated EM and multiphysics/thermal simulation with the capacity to solve large-scale design and integration problems across IC, package, and board.

Filtering Solutions for 5G C-Band Interference with Radar Altimeter Receivers

Recent debate about potential interference between 5G network equipment operating in C-band frequencies and radar altimeter (RA) receivers onboard commercial aircraft has highlighted the need for high-Q filtering solutions in crowded spectral environments. This paper presents two Mini-Circuits filters fabricated using ceramic resonator and cavity technologies designed specifically to eliminate interference by 5G C-Band emissions when incorporated either within or in line with the RA assembly.

Getting Started: An Introduction to Inductor Specifications

There is more to selecting an inductor than the nominal inductance value. To ensure your choice will perform in your application, you need to give careful consideration to inductance tolerance, current ratings, DCR, operating temperature and efficiency under specific conditions. This paper provides students and anyone new to inductors with an overview of the key performance ratings they will need to understand when specifying RF and Power Inductors.
