Radar Echo Generator Application Note

Radar test systems are essential in research, development, production and maintenance of radar systems. Most radar tests are expensive to carry out in the field and have a complicated setup and operation. This application note presents a solution for testing the complete radar system by generating any kind of radar echo signals with arbitrary range, Doppler frequency and Radar Cross Section. The Radar Echo Generator makes it possible to perform real time tests on many applications including aerospace & defense and commercial radar systems.

Solving the Top 5 IoT Testing Challenges

Since each generation of IoT devices needs to be smaller, more robust, easier to configure and use less power than before, designers and engineers need to know the challenges involved. Download the whitepaper to learn how to navigate these.

Achieving First-Spin Success in LTCC Components with Advanced Material Simulation Models

Since the advent of Network Synthesis Theory at the turn of the last century, filter designers have been developing ever more sophisticated solutions to translate polynomial transfer functions into working, physical components.

Characterizing Active Phased Array Antennas

This application note aims to explain test procedures and give recommendations towards characterization of the relevant parameters for active phased array antennas and their passive subsystem, as often used in applications for Mobile Communication and RADAR.

Airstrip(TM) — an Innovative Transmission Line Technology in Support of Hi-Rel Space Qualified Packaging

Mechanical integration of microwave components often becomes the last step while addressing manufacturing considerations for system-level designs. In many cases, the electrical design is analyzed, boards built, designs reverified, then mechanical engineers fit everything into the final package. This paper shows how component manufacturers can help solve system-level packaging problems using Airstrip technology.

How GaN is Changing the SATCOM RF Front-End

Solid-state technologies such as gallium nitride (GaN) are transforming satellite communications (satcom). GaN’s advantages of high RF power, low DC power consumption, high reliability and smaller size (which reduces system weight) are opening new markets and revolutionizing the RF front-end (RFFE) in existing satcom applications.
