Synzen Constellation Class of Ultra-Compact Antennas at Embedded World

Synzen Constellation Class of Ultra-Compact Flexible Antennas for Small IoT Devices - RF CafeSynzen Precision Technology will be showcasing their new range of miniature FPC antennas at this year's Embedded World trade fair in Germany. The six ultra-compact flexible antennas which make up Synzen's Constellation Class of antennas feature novel and elegant design solutions that maintain superior performance, even in very small IoT devices. These antennas are perfect for asset tracking, OBDII, smart home, smart city, ISM, and wearables. Not only do they take up minimal space in modules, the antennas also display excellent coexistence, which means that you can easily integrate more than one antenna into your device. Furthermore, careful development of the range has ensured the best isolation with no out-of-band spurious resonances. Synzen's Technical Director, Chris Tomlin said: "Usually, smaller IoT devices cannot use off-the-shelf FPC antennas because of lack of clearance and/or space. So, we made a more practical range of antennas which enables quick integration without the need for expensive and time-consuming custom designs...

Anatech Electronics June 2022 Newsletter

Anatech Electronics June 2022 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his May 2022 newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "The Very Real Vulnerabilities of GPS," where he discusses the inherent vulnerabilities of using the satellite-based system as a primary Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) reference. The Achilles' Heel is how easily the signal can be overwhelmed and/or spoofed with local transmitters. Alternative technologies are being researched and developed, including highly accurate and robust inertial references, but to date none are as precise as GPS. In time, though, a solution will be found. Necessity is the mother of invention, as the saying goes. Also mentioned are private networks on the upswing, the fast-growing phased-array radar market, Starlink no longer being alone, and Dish and Space X duking it out...

Anatech Electronics March 2022 Newsletter

Anatech Electronics March 2022 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his March 2022 newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "Will CBRS Private Networks Take Off?," where he discusses the pros and cons of moving to the Citizens Broadband Radio Service licensed frequency band (which means paying a usage fee) versus remaining in the licensee-free Wi-Fi spectrum. According to Sam, benefits include greater security, less interference, and lower latency for real-time processes. The biggest negative (other than having to pay for it) is the relatively narrow bandwidth that can limit data rates. CBRS private networks are only now being deployed...

ConductRF Flexible RF Cable Assemblies to 18 GHz

ConductRF Flexible RF Cable Assemblies to 18 GHz March 2022 - RF CafeConductRF's LSA series of low loss, performance flexible RF cable assemblies, provide microwave system designers with a versatile solution for most applications. Here we offer customers a solution for 0.086" dia. cable that facilitates greater flexibility and handling or, 0.141" dia. 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 18 GHz, 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, these cables minimize the threat of cross-talk effect. ConductRF guarantees it’s performance through 100% factory test prior to shipping. Additional options are also available with enhanced bonded strain relief...

Teledyne e2v HiRel 100 V, 20 MHz FET and GaN Transistor Driver Flip Chip

Teledyne e2v HiRel Announces New 100 V High-Speed 20 MHz FET and GaN Transistor Driver Flip Chip Die - RF CafeTeledyne e2v HiRel announces the new TD99102 UltraCMOS® High-speed FET and GaN transistor driver offering very high switching speed of 20 MHz. The new flip-chip part is ideal for driving Teledyne HiRel's 100 V high reliability GaN HEMT devices in DC-DC, AC-DC converters, orbital Point-of-Load (POL) modules and space motor drives. The TD99102 is an integrated high-speed driver designed to control the gates of external power devices such as enhancement mode gallium nitride (GaN) High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) and power MOSFETs. The outputs of the TD99102 are capable of providing switching transition speeds in the sub-nanosecond range for switching applications up to 20 MHz. The TD99102 is optimized for matched dead time and offers best-in-class propagation delay to improve system bandwidth.

CMT's New S5180B Compact VNA w/Pulse Modulation Option

Copper Mountain Technologies S5180B Compact VNA with Pulse Modulation Software Option - RF CafeCopper Mountain Technologies' S5180B 2-Port 18 GHz Compact VNA will serve as an enhanced version of its predecessor, the S5180 Compact VNA. S5180B is the first CMT VNA with built-in Pulse Modulation Generation/Measurement capabilities which will expand measurement proficiency for the development, manufacturing, and testing of high-power amplifiers. The Pulse Modulation feature is a paid software option sold separately from the VNA and is only compatible with the S5180B VNA due to hardware requirements. The Pulse Modulation option can be added at any time during or after the initial VNA purchase. Pulse modulated measurements are useful for high power amplifier development, manufacturing, and testing, especially on-wafer components where a heat sync isn't practical. 5180B has built-in hardware to support various types of pulse measurements when used with the Pulse Modulation software option. Pulses can be generated...

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
