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].

COTS Software Defined Radio for 5G Development

"The latest SDR modules offer SoC solutions with integrated I/O, ARM processors and FPGAs. Combining these attributes with superior signal integrity, phase-coherent sampling and multi-channel transceivers a COTS SDR system is an ideal choice for a 5G development platform. This article will familiarize the user with SDR using a multi-purpose COTS platform to reduce the time to market."

NI AWR DESIGN ENVIRONMENT: Load-Pull Primer for Optimizing PA Performance

Power amplifier (PA) performance under small- and large-signal operating conditions is contingent upon the output impedance match (load). As a result, PA designers must determine the ideal output load for system-driven amplifier requirements such as output power at a given saturated power (compression point), efficiency, and/or linearity.
