CMT Bootcamp 101 Webinar: Software Tips & Tricks

Copper Mountain Technologies Bootcamp 101 Webinar: Software Tips & Tricks - RF CafeCopper Mountain Technologies (CMT) has a webinar coming up in league with Eravant as part of our VNA 101 Bootcamp Webinar series titled "Software Tips & Tricks." The CMT vector network analyzer software has a lot of features and capabilities. During this session, we will review some aspects of the software in more detail to help users understand how to get the most out of the software. This is a follow-on to the previous "Fixture Requirements to Accurately De-Embed DUTs from VNA Measurements" Webinar. Automatic Fixture Removal software may be used to remove the effects of fixtures from the measurement of a Device Under Test. It's fast and easy to use, but it is imperative to understand the extent to which fixture-related measurement impairments may be compensated. During this webinar, we will review the possible pitfalls during de-embedding and measurement of a DUT on a fixture...

Anatech Electronics November 2022 Newsletter

Anatech Electronics November 2022 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his November 2022 newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "Face Reality: Level 5 Vehicle Autonomy Won't Be Here Anytime Soon." A definition of Level 5 on the level5auto.com website declares thus: "Level 5 driving is full driving automation. That is, the car's systems can accomplish every part of the dynamic driving task (DDT). They can also monitor all of the vehicle's surroundings and make predictions about what the objects in the space around it will do next. Further, the car can do this anywhere. The systems are no longer confined to a limited operational design domain (ODD). And, finally, the car operates without the expectation or need for a human to ever take over driving - even in the case of a system failure." The scheme requires not only perfect AI (artificial intelligence), but perfectly functioning electronics processors, sensors, and control over the car's throttle, steering, and brakes. That's a pretty tall order. As Sam notes, if any monitoring and/or intervention by the human occupant is required, then Level 5 has not been achieved. Level 5 may well be an asymptote of the vehicle autonomy curve...

Weighing the Benefits of Benchtop vs. USB Based TE

Weighing the Benefits of Benchtop vs. USB Based Test Equipment - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, Inc., an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled "Weighing the Benefits of Benchtop vs. USB Based Test Equipment," that explains the differences between benchtop and USB based test equipment to identify the best option for a user's project. The most glaring difference between USB-controlled units and standard benchtop units is usually size. A USB unit fits next to a laptop computer on a small desk while a benchtop unit occupies the better part of a laboratory work area or 6U or more of a standard 19-in.-wide test equipment rack. Another difference between a USB unit and a traditional benchtop unit is the computer. For USB equipment, the computer is part of the test setup, whereas for a benchtop unit, it is an option...

Anatech Electronics October 2022 Newsletter

Anatech Electronics October 2022 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his October 2022 newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "It's Getting Crowded in Low Earth Orbit," where he discusses the rapidly increasing number of both operational and non-operational satellites in low earth orbit (LEO). It presents both a physical space crowding problem and an RF spectrum crowding problem. Companies like Anatech help with the RF crowding by designing and building filters to mitigate the presence of nearby signals. Companies like ClearSpace SA (Switzerland) are working the physical space crowding issue by designing and building grappling bot satellites which will grab a satellite (or large debris) and drag it to a lower orbit for atmospheric re-entry. I wonder what the carbon footprint is of a launch vehicle needed to get the bot aloft...

Teaming Amplifiers and Signal Generators

Axiom Test Equipment Blog: Teaming Amplifiers and Signal Generators - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, Inc., an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post entitled, "Teaming Amplifiers and Signal Generators," that explains how connecting a suitable amplifier to a signal generator can be boosted to the power levels needed in a project. Signal generators serve as sources of analog, digital, and even RF/microwave signals for test purposes. They may not always deliver enough output power for some tests, such as characterizing filters and antennas, and help may be needed. By connecting a suitable amplifier, a signal generator can be boosted to the required power levels. Finding the right combination comes down to knowing the key specifications for both units. Laboratory amplifiers can be specified by frequency range, bandwidth, output power, and gain...

Synzen Low-Profile 5G and 4G LTE Antennas

Synzen Low-Profile, Compact 5G and 4G LTE Antennas - RF CafeSynzen Precision Technology has unveiled ALCOR and ATRIA - two new low-profile antennas which are perfect for the wearable market or any IoT devices which require an ultra-slim design.

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...
