Design of a Complete RF Downconverter Module for Test Equipment

RF/microwave modules, often referred to as “hybrids,” integrate functional blocks used to transmit and/or receive radio signals. These hybrid circuits combine different technologies, including monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs)/RFICs, discrete field-effect transistors (FETs), and passive devices attached to substrates such as alumina or FR4, which contain circuit traces and distributed components, all within a single housing or enclosure.

New VNA Technologies Enable Millimeter-Wave Broadband Testing to 220 GHz

Application development in the millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies for terrestrial communication, high-frequency device characterization, automotive radar, and other technologies is increasing. The challenge of testing and characterizing the devices that enable new solutions is becoming increasingly complex. As broadband testing over hundreds of gigahertz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability and accuracy deficits, researchers and engineers are demanding better broadband solutions that help to overcome these challenges and simplify mmWave testing.
