Answers to RF Cafe Quiz #13

RF Engineering Quizzes - RF CafeAll RF Cafe quizzes would make perfect fodder in employment interviews for technicians or engineers - particularly those who are fresh out of school or are relatively new to the work world. Come to think of it, they would make equally excellent study material for the same persons who are going to be interviewed for a job.

1. a) Right-hand rule.

See this RF Cafe Labs experiment that proves the claim.



2. b) Lissajous waveform (lē'-su-zhOO").
 Lissajous pattern on o-scope
Named after Jules Antoine Lissajous.









3. b) frā-nĕl'  -  that's right, it is NOT pronounced frĕz-nĕl'



4. a) Lowpass

Low frequencies easily pass through the series inductors and do not pass through the shunt capacitors.



5. b) 4

Each reactive component (2 inductors + 2 capacitors) creates a pole in the transfer function.



6. c) Microstrip

Microstrip uses a conductor running over top of a ground plane, with a dielectric in-between.



7. b) 90° H-Plane bend

The mnemonic used for waveguide is that an E-Plane bend curves along the narrow side (the "E"asy bend), and that a H-Plane bend curves along the wide side (the "H"ard bend). There is no such thing as a Maxwell bend.



8. c)  62 kΩ, ±10% = 3 (62 x 103 = 62 kΩ), Silver = ±10%



9. a) Tin whiskers

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 ...
