Artech House today
announced the publication of
Countermeasures for Aerial Drones by Garik Markarian and Andrew Staniforth.
This comprehensive resource explains the development of UAVs, drone threats,
counter-UAV systems, and strategies to handle UAVs, focusing on the practical
aspects of counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems and technologies.
Theory, technical and operational practice with insights from industry and
policing are covered, and the full rogue drone threat landscape and
counter-drone technologies and systems is explored. The book provides insight
into counter-drone strategy, developing effective counter-drone strategies and
measures, as well as counter-drone programs and the regulatory frameworks
governing the use of drones. An New Release price of $111 is being offered for a
Modelithics, is pleased to announce the
release of version
20.8 of the COMPLETE+3D Library for use with Ansys HFSS. The library
contains over 325 highly scalable Microwave Global Models™ for capacitor,
inductor, and resistor families from many popular vendors, plus a collection of
nearly 300 Modelithics' 3D geometry models for inductors, capacitors, filters,
packages and connectors. This library now represents a total of 22,000
individual components with circuit and/or 3D EM models. Version 20.8 adds nine
new part value-, pad-, and substrate scalable models and over eighty new full
wave 3D electromagnetic models. New scalable circuit models include new models
for AVX's MP01...
Stephen Barthelmes of Triad RF Systems talks
amplified radios, Doherty techniques, SDR, and UAVs with everythingRF. We talk
about everything from amplified radios and Doherty techniques to software defined
radio (SDR) systems and UAVs in an interview with everythingRF this week. everythingRF:
Can you give us a brief history about Triad RF? Stephen Barthelmes: Triad
RF was established in 2010 when the idea for the company began. In 2013, Dave, Dean
and I got together to begin the development of RF products that were underserved
by the market. By bringing the decades of knowledge that we had accumulated together,
we implemented solid processes in sales, design and manufacturing that produced
products that were cutting edge in performance and cost. We also understood the
market pressures for increasing RF power to enhance data transmission while simultaneously
improving overall efficiency. We stepped up to that challenge by creating some of
the most linear and efficient amplifiers in the market...
Sam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF
and microwave filter company, has published his November newsletter that features
his short op−ed entitled "Do You Think 5G is
Challenging? Meet 6G!," which delves into what can be expected based on current
planning. "Like its predecessor, 6G is more than simply an upgrade in data rates
and capacity, as it will attempt to deliver downstream data rates up to 1 Tbye/s
and operate at frequencies in the so-called sub terahertz region, just below where
lightwave frequencies begin. It will make extensive use of artificial intelligence
and machine learning to enable applications that 5G presumably will not have been
addressed in the next decade." . Also included in the newsletter are a few industry
RF coaxial cables are available off the shelf from DigiKey. ConductRF FM series
of Hand Formable RF cable assemblies provides system designers with a versatile
solution that allows RF cables to be physically routed and set in to position during
installation. Standard lengths and connector types feature performance up to 18 GHz.
Low loss, tinned braided cable of 0.086" diameter with shielding of >100 dB.
100% factory tested for VSWR & insertion loss. RoHS & Reach compliant.
Ideal for internal module linking and great for RF Testing. When compared to traditional
semi-rigid options, these cables can provide increased installation flexibility
at a substantially lower cost. Made in the USA!
Triad RF Systems has announced the development
of a dual, bi-directional amplifier that supports 2X2 MIMO radio applications.
is a solid-state-power amplifier (SSPA) that operates at a frequency of 2,200-2,500 MHz.
It is designed for military and commercial use and supports a variety of signal
types, from simple CW/FM signals to complex, highly modulated carriers such as 64
and 256QAM. The technical features of each channel on this dual bi-directional amplifier
includes a transmit signal gain of 25 dB, a receive signal gain of 12 dB,
a receive signal noise figure of 2.5 dB, and ~20 W BPSK power x2 (40 W
off total RF power). Supply voltage is an ultra-wide 12−30 VDC...
PCBONLINE, a one-stop custom PCB/PCBA manufacturer
for prototypes, small-batch, and massive production, has a short
video showing their PCBA manufacturing
process. It begins with the solder paste application using an SMT component
attachment pad stencil, shows the pick-and-place operation (always a mesmerizing
things to watch), progresses to the temperature profiled reflow oven and if needed
for through-hole components a wave soldering step, then goes to machine vision and
human inspection, and finally an electrical test is performed. Any necessary rework
is performed by a trained technician. For many electronics product manufacturers,
PCB assembly is necessary and vital to their products. PCBONLINE, a one-stop PCB/PCBA
manufacturer since 1999...
Electronics industry sales and marketing
expert Lectrix is hosting "Engineering
the Conversation" on December 8 & 9, 2020. Engineering the Conversation
is a free, 2-day online conference for professionals managing sales and marketing
in the B2B electronics industry. "So much has changed on the sales and marketing
side of the industry in the last 9 to 10 months, that there is a lot to be said
and learned from each other," said Graham Kilshaw, CEO of Lectrix. "This virtual
conference is a community event for the electronics industry; it allows attendees
to interact and network with speakers and each other to exchange the latest ideas
and solutions on how to respond to the pandemic..."
Skyworks is pleased to introduce the
a Mid- and High Band Front-End Module (FEM) supports 3G / 4G / 5G mobile devices
and operates efficiently in 3G / 4G / 5G modes. The module has separate 3G / 4G
/ 5G PA blocks operating in the mid- and high bands, a silicon controller containing
the MIPI® RFFE® interface, RF band switches, MB and HB antenna switches, bi-directional
couplers, and integrated filters for Bands 1, 2, 3, 7, 34, 39, 40 and 41. RF I/O
ports are internally matched to 50 ohms to minimize the need for external components.
Extremely low leakage current maximizes device standby time. IC die and passive
components are mounted on a multi-layer laminate substrate. The 62-pad LGA assembly,
