CMOS Isolated Gate Drivers Enhance Power Delivery Systems

Green standards are challenging power designers to deliver more energy-efficient, cost-effective, smaller, and more reliable power delivery systems. A critical building block within ac-dc and isolated dcdc power supplies is the isolated gate driver. These trends push the need for greater power efficiency and increased isolation-device integration.

The Importance of Low Phase Noise and How to Measure It

Phase noise is caused by an RF waveform’s unintentional phase modulation, degrading the overall fidelity of a signal. In this white paper, learn phase noise fundamentals, how phase noise impacts the performance of radar and digital communications systems, and the limitations and advantages of two different phase noise measurement methods.


Conducted Emissions in DC/DC Converters - Simulation Versus Measurement

Simulation can be a big time-saver when designing EMI filters for DC/DC converters. Power supply control chip vendors offer various filter design tools that provide reasonable design choices for filter simulation before any hardware prototype is available. However, simulated results can differ significantly for different tools if simulated models are not accurate or do not cover all the relevant components.

Standardizing Space Ovenized Crystal Oscillators for Lower Cost and Faster Delivery

Building for space is challenging. Program management requirements, parts availability and delivery, parts costs, and testing costs historically make space OCXOs expensive and longlead. Standardizing specifications based on MIL-PRF-55310, NASA EEE-INST-002, NASA Parts Selection List, and GSFC Preferred Parts Lists, and procuring parts to vendors standard drawings can significantly reduce costs and improve delivery of high-performance OCXOs.

Over-the-Air Pattern Measurements for a 32-Element Hybrid Beamforming Phased Array

In this paper we summarize measured receive antenna performance for a commercially available 32-element phased array demonstrator. The demonstrator is configured for hybrid beamforming with eight elements per subarray and four digital channels. The test setup and calibration steps are explained sequentially along with the measured calibration accuracy achieved. Three-dimensional radiation patterns of the antenna array are shown for various electronically steered beam positions including amplitude tapering.
