Artech House today announced the release
Designing Wireless Sensor Network Solutions for Tactical ISR, by Timothy D.
Cole. This comprehensive resource demonstrates how wireless sensor network (WSN)
systems, a key element of the Internet of Things (IoT), are designed and evaluated
to solve problems associated with autonomous sensing systems. Functional blocks
that form WSN-based systems are described, chapter by chapter, providing the reader
with a progressive learning path through all aspects of designing remote sensing
capabilities using a WSN-based system. The development and a full description of
fundamental performance equations and technological solutions required by these
real-time systems are included. New Release discount price available now...
Through our flagship
SKY66430-11, Skyworks is powering
new devices in the rapidly emerging 5G Massive Internet of Things (IoT) market.
SKY66430-11 is the world's smallest, fully pre-certified all-in-one system-in-package
(SiP) incorporating cellular modem, transceiver, RF front-end, memory and power
management functionality, enabling LTE-M and NB-IoT connected devices. This turnkey
solution integrates Sequans' Monarch SoC platform to support a wide range of low
power, low data rate consumer and industrial IoT applications including asset tracking,
industrial monitoring, smart metering, wearables and more. Receive low-pass filters
are integrated into the SiP along with the necessary matching to yield a 50 ohm
single-ended impedance for the antenna. The filters...
Antenova Ltd, UK manufacturer of antennas
and RF antenna modules for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
applications, has added a high performing 5G SMD design to its array of 5G antennas.
This brand-new antenna,
Lepida SR4L054, is
a wideband antenna in SMD form, designed to achieve high efficiency and performance
right across the spectrum from 600 MHz to 3800 MHz. Lepida operates right
across the cellular bands B71 (617-698 MHz), LTE 700, GSM850, GSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900,
WCDMA2100, B40 (2300–2400 MHz), B7 (2500-2690 MHz), and B78 (3300-3800 MHz).
The antenna is linear polarised and has been designed to ensure excellent coplanarity.
Antenova has built Lepida for the more demanding applications in 5G, 4G and LTE
where antenna performance and reliability...
Triad RF Systems, a leading designer and
manufacturer of integrated radio systems and high performance RF/Microwave amplifiers,
just published a very nice Tech Brief entitled "Keys
to Successful Naval Defense Using MIMO/MANET Radio System Deployments." Beginning
with a review of applicable radio history (HF, VHF, UHF, SATCOM), the document extolls
the virtues of MIMO (Multiple-Input / Multiple-Output) and its antenna diversity
scheme (a la your Wi-Fi router). Building on the technology is MANET (Mobile Ad-Hoc
Networking), which exhibits self-forming and self-healing networks that survive
in hostile signal environments. While the title specifies naval applications because
of Triad RF's extensive involvement in the realm, this technology extends into other
military services as well as domestic law enforcement...
ConductRF LSA series of
Performance flexible RF Cable Assemblies, provide microwave system designers
with a versatile solution for most applications. Offered is a solution for 0.086"
diameter cable that facilitates greater flexibility and handling or, 0.141" diameter
that exploits the same great performance but with almost half the loss. Connector
options include SMA, Type-N, TNC & SMP that provide excellent VSWR between DC
and 18GHz, also solutions for MCX & SMB are available in a wide array of configurations.
These assemblies are built using our own double shielded, FEP jacketed cable, that
was developed specifically for performance solutions. With shielding effectiveness
exceeding 90 dB through 18 GHz...
PCBONLINE, a global high-end PCB manufacturer
servicing electronics manufacturing (EMS) customers in defense, aerospace, medical,
and other high-end industries, has posted a technical blog entitled, "Comprehensive Guide
to SMT Stencils." It answers questions about what are SMT (Surface Mount Technology)
and SMT stencils and what are they used for, where do you get SMT stencils for PCB
assembly, what are the different types of SMT stencils, and how do you use SMT stencils?
SMT (Surface Mount Technology) stencils are very important for PCB designing and
manufacturing. If you can't decide which type of SMT stencil to go for and you need
a detailed guide for this topic, then you're in the right place. This article will
focus on every aspect of PCB stencils and by the time you reach the end...

Rigid-Flex PCBs are boards
with 3D design using a combination of flexible and rigid board technologies, and
have characteristics of both soft and hard boards. Therefore, they can be used in
electrical devices with special requirements, such as connecting a flexible area
and a rigid area. Rigid-flex PCBS save the internal space of electrics, reduce the
size, and improve electrical and mechanical performance of electronic devices. In
PCBONLINE, rigid-flex PCB manufacturing and assembly are operated under strict quality
control. The final board thickness ranges from 0.05 mm to 0.6 mm.
Fork Test Labs introduces the
Fork programmable I/O interface
board for test-engineers to automate fixtures - for only $95! Everyone knows
or has seen big test stands, but few can use them because they are very expensive
and not many engineers can put in hours or days to make it work as needed. So, we
decided to create a platform for testing to help engineers in their everyday hard
work. Just take Fork, PyTest and program the tests in Python. Features include 8
digital I/O, 8 analog inputs, 2 analog outputs, Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity,
and 3 UART, SPI or I2C for connection with external devices...
