Custom MMIC Intros Sub-Harmonic Mixer Product Category

Custom MMIC Intros New Sub-Harmonic Mixer Product Category - RF CafeCustom MMIC is excited to announce a new product category, adding to its growing list of high performance MMICs, with the introduction of three new GaAs Sub-Harmonic Mixers. The CMD303, CMD310/C3 MMICs cover frequency ranges of 13-21 GHz and 20-32 GHz respectively, with excellent conversion loss and isolation. Sub-harmonic mixers are driven by a local oscillator (LO) signal that is an integer fraction, or sub-harmonic, of the desired LO frequency. This eases the design, layout and cost of the LO source for microwave frequency designs. These new mixers operate with a x2 LO, meaning the user needs to provide the mixer with an LO at half the desired mixing frequency ...

Bittele Electronics' Selective Soldering Capability

Bittele Electronics' Selective Soldering Capability - RF CafeBittele Electronics, with facilities in Canada, The United States, and China, has an ability to perform "selective soldering" on through-hole mounted components to target individual pins as opposed to exposing the entire PCB to a wave soldering process. As described on the Bittele website, selective soldering is used on assemblies where through-hole components are distributed across the PCB, as opposed to a high density connector pin array where applying a single blob of solder (using a "fountain" stream - see image to the right) would be difficult. In some instances both wave soldering and selective soldering is used. Since the vast majority of printed circuit assemblies use surface mounted components, selective soldering and/or wave soldering is performed first for through-hole component, and then surface mount components are added and a solder reflow pass ...

Spectrum Instrumentation AWG Outputs Swing 24 Volts

Spectrum Instrumentation AWG Outputs Swing 24 Volts - RF CafeSpectrum Instrumentation has added six new Arbitrary Waveform Generators (AWGs) to its recently released M2p.65 xx series of PCIe cards. The new AWGs extend the product family's capabilities by boosting the available output range, so that waveforms can be generated with amplitude swings of up to ±12 V into 1 MΩ or ±6 V into 50 Ω. To achieve the higher output voltage ranges, the cards have been fitted with additional amplification and larger cooling plates. This makes the cards a little wider, so that they occupy two PCIe slots, but they are still just 168 mm in length. The small size allows them to fit into almost any PC, turning it into a powerful and flexible waveform generator. The M2p.65xx series AWGs use the latest 16-bit Digital-to-Analog Converters and feature a fast PCIe x4 interface with up to 700 MByte/s streaming speed ...

Is 5G Safe for Humans? No One Knows.

Anatech Electronics November 2019 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his November newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "Is 5G Safe for Humans? No One Knows." The controversy over whether or not RF radiation from wireless devices - cellphones, notebook computers, tablets, smart meters, et al, is harmful to human body cells has been with us since the early 1990s, when the Wireless Revolution began. Industry standards groups have defined Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) levels for exposure that model human anatomy and cell structure in order to scientifically assess the effects of RF radiation. As with studies done with other controversial topics like tobacco and pharmaceuticals, the "truth" is as much subjective as it is objective, and the two side of the argument will never agree ...

How to Design Cost-Effective PCBs

Bittele: How to Design Cost-Effective PCBs - RF CafeBittele, a turn-key PCB assembly services provider for prototype and low volume electronic contract manufacturing, has posted a tutorial entitled, "How to Design Cost-Effective PCBs." It begins, "A design engineer should consider all the things that affect the total cost of manufacturing of PCB. Frequently, new PCB design engineers often do not consider the cost of PCB fabrication. The things that affect the cost per PCB that many young design engineers don't plan for include the cost of tooling, the size of a PCB and the spacing of board components. To ensure that your production costs are as low as possible, including the costs of tooling, here are some guidelines to follow: 1. Select the smallest size of the PCB that is practical. 2. Standard rectangular and square PCB shapes always cost less than non-standard shapes. Furthermore, do not incorporate slots or cutouts unless they are completely necessary ..."

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
