Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test
equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog entitled, "Choose
the Best Chamber for Your Next Project" that informs people about the use of
environmental chambers for many testing applications. Temperature and humidity environmental
test chambers are able to provide rapid product temperature change rates and use
varying levels of relative humidity to locate design problems prior to shipping
your products, improving product quality and reliability. Axiom stocks models for
sale or lease from a number of leading manufacturers, such as Temptronic, Tenney,
Thermonics, and Test Equity. We have small benchtop size chambers up to larger reach-in
Antenova introduces its Allani high performing
compact 4G/5G designs with high speed data or video Antenova Ltd, the UK−based
manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is announcing
"Allani," part no SR4L069 - a compact SMD antenna for the 4G and 5G cellular bands.
This new antenna measures just 45.0 mm x 10.0 mm x 3.3 mm. It achieves
good efficiency with a short ground plane, making it a good choice for designs with
relatively little space on the PCB for the antenna. The Allani antenna only requires
clearances of 3.25 mm beneath the antenna and 15 mm from each side to
perform well in the sub 1 GHz bands...
San Francisco Circuits' (SFC) specialty is
in the complex, advanced technology of PCB fabrication and assembly, producing high
quality multi-layered PCBs from elaborate layouts. Our "Seamless
PCB Manufacturing Checklist" will help minimize mistakes as much as possible
in all stages of bareboard PCB manufacturing and provide a good starting point for
some of the essentials needed in the majority of PCB manufacturing quotes. San Francisco
Circuits has put together a new PCB manufacturing checklist resource on their website.
When planning the fabrication of a printed circuit board (PCB), a lot of things
have to be planned carefully to minimize mistakes. If one step or consideration
is overlooked in the manufacturing process, it may have disastrous consequences
resulting in a malfunctioning board. The overall goal of the seamless PCB manufacturing
checklist is to help ensure every part of the circuit board is considered and potential

PCB manufacturer TechnoTronix has a blog
post you might find useful entitled "Rogers
PCB Vs FR4 PCB – What is the Difference?" It begins: "In the world of hi-tech
gadgets, medical equipment, and Industrial Machines, the performance of any product
depends mainly on the quality of its PCB design. Though there are multiple aspects
to be considered while designing a PCB, our focus here is to identify the right
PCB material which is also known as Substrate. Substrates are the dielectric sheets
that hold the components and traces of a design. Selecting the right substrate material
for a specific application is the key aspect of PCB design. To decide which substrate
works best for any given application, we need to know the salient features of all
the materials available on the market. The materials offered include FR1 to FR6,
CEM1 to CEM5, insulated metal substrates..."

Sam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an
RF and microwave filter company, has published his September 2021 newsletter that
features his short op−ed entitled "5G: Will Millimeter
Waves Be High Enough?," where he notes the technical difficulties being experienced
with components and operational environments in the mm−wave realm, and that life
in the THz spectrum will be even more challenging - perhaps even impossible for
general use. As we know from Friis equation, electromagnetic power levels drop proportional
to the square of distance (6 dB per doubled distance), but in the THz region
atmospheric absorption comes into play as physical molecules resonate at specific
wavelengths, further decreasing received power...
