Axiom Blog: AC, DC Loads Evaluate Electrical Use

Axiom Test Equipment Blog: AC, DC Loads Evaluate Electrical Use - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, Inc., an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Modular Test Solution Speed Semiconductor Testing," that explains how electronic loads are able to enhance the performance of AC and DC power supplies and energy sources. Connecting an AC or DC electronic load to the output of an AC or DC power supply, respectively, enables it to replace the electronic circuitry normally at that point in an electronic design or product and study the behavior of the power supply under a variety of operating conditions. A power supply can be analyzed by connecting it to a suitable-sized resistor to sink current to ground. However, such a passive load is not representative of most actual applications. An electronic load mimics the complexity of a real-world load with resistance, inductance, and capacitance that can vary under changing conditions. Whether by manual tuning or programmed under computer control, an electronic load can mimic the many different load conditions facing a power supply...

Antenova Adds Agosti Corner-Placement Antenna

Antenova Adds Agosti Corner-Placement Antenna - RF CafeAntenova Ltd, the UK-based manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is adding a new offering to its range of miniature Surface Mount Designed (SMD) antennas and modules for GNSS applications. The new antenna, Agosti, part number SR4G080, measures 9.0 x 5.8 x 1.7 mm and operates with exceptional efficiency in a reduced space on a corner of a PCB. The key advantage of the Agosti antenna is its small ground plane requirement. Most SMD antennas use the surface of the PCB around the antenna as a ground plane to radiate signal from, so it is the ground plane requirement not the physical dimensions of the antenna that defines the space it needs. Antenova's radiated measurement results show Agosti operating well on small ground planes of 40 x 20 mm, 70 x 25 mm and 80 x 30 mm, making it a good choice for small form factor designs...

Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter

Axiom Test Equipment Blog: Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Learn When an Analyzer Makes More Sense Than a Meter," that helps identify when it's better to pick an analyzer or a meter unit, based on the requirements you have. Some test units, like meters, are designed for speed and simplicity and to read a single electrical parameter, such as voltage, current, or power. Other test units are more elaborate and are called analyzers because they not only gauge the value of an electrical parameter, but they also enable full study of it. However, both types of units have grown in power and sophistication and today's comparisons require a bit more time and thought. Meters and analyzers may appear remarkably similar at first, starting with the measurement of an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, or power. Both types of units work with probes, sensors, or test fixtures to determine the value of an electrical parameter for a device under test (DUT). The meter usually gives a quick measurement, often a "one-button test," while the analyzer may require more programming and setup time...

Antenna Pattern Editor 2.0 Software Introduced - RF CafeCenter of Telecommunication Technologies (CTT) is proud to announce immediate availability of version 2.0 of their popular Antenna Pattern Editor. Antenna Pattern Editor 2.0 is a universal tool to view, create, edit and convert antenna patterns. See the New Features in Antenna Pattern Editor 2.0 list at the left. The main idea embedded in the program is to provide the user with the opportunity to quickly create an antenna pattern file using various methods. Antenna pattern file is a simple text or xml file that describes the main characteristics of the antennas - radiation patterns, gain, frequency range, name, manufacturer and other data. These files are used in various radio planning tools including our RadioPlanner, Indoor Radio Planner, and MLinkPlanner. There are a large number of antenna pattern file formats, but it often happens that there is no file in the required format. In this case, using the Antenna Pattern Editor, you can easily convert the file to the format you need. Sometimes the antenna information is just a picture of the antenna pattern. In such cases, using the Antenna Pattern Editor, you can prepare the necessary file in just a few minutes...

SFC: PCB Component/IC Shortages Status Report

San Francisco Circuits: PCB Component / IC Shortages - Status Report 2022 - RF CafeSan Francisco Circuits (SFC) has released a report on the global integrated circuits/chip shortage that has impacted numerous industries around the world. This new PCB Component Shortage Report explains the key factors that have led to the shortage, how it is currently affecting many industries, and provides multiple mitigation strategies to help designers make it through this challenging semiconductor market. While the global pandemic certainly contributed to the current component shortage, supply disruptions were already happening well before factories began shutting down. Stockpiling specialized components, designing against obsolescence, and recycling chips are a few strategies that will help designers make it through these difficult times. Partnering with a PCB fabrication and PCB assembly provider is another key strategy that will help when sourcing components in short supply. SF Circuits has a strong reputation and many connections with various suppliers...

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...
