Mutual inductance is superbly demonstrated in a transformer. Transformers are made up of two wire coils placed close each other such that current running in one coil can induce a voltage in the other coil without the coils touching. Power can be transferred without a metal connection with a transformer, and transformers can be […]

Pasternack has released six new IQ mixers with RF and LO frequency bands ranging from 4 GHz to 38 GHz and In-Phase and Quadrature IF bandwidths ranging from DC to 4.5 GHz. Typical applications include point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radio, VSAT, Military Radar, EW, Satellite Communications, sensors, and test and measurement equipment. Pasternack’s new IQ Mixer modules are […]
A phase-lock(ed) loop (PLL) is a fundamental building block in wireless, radio frequency (RF), and telecommunication technologies. PLLs use a negative feedback circuit to match the phase of the frequency of another signal. PLLs synchronize the phase of the PLL’s output to the input signal’s frequency by tweaking the output of a voltage-driven oscillator; the […]
ON Semiconductor is expanding its portfolio of Interline Transfer Electron Multiplication CCD (IT-EMCCD) image sensors with new options that target not only low-light industrial applications such as medical and scientific imaging, but also commercial and military applications for high-end surveillance. The new 4 megapixel KAE-04471 uses larger 7.4 micron pixels than those found in existing […]

TMC, an industry leader in high-performance vibration cancellation technology, introduces Hybrid Honeycomb™, a new type of optical breadboard that combines a custom, bonded aluminum plate with the structural damping of a honeycomb breadboard. “Many ultra-precision tools include an optical subassembly. Those subassemblies must be mounted to a rigid, flat, damped surface to maintain the positional […]

Digital signals have two positions: on or off, interpreted in shorthand as 1 or 0. Analog signals, on the other hand, can be on, off, half-way, two-thirds the way to on, and an infinite number of positions between 0 and 1 either approaching 1 or descending down to zero. The two are handled very differently […]
Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, has introduced a new line of voltage variable attenuators (VVAs) that offer up to 60 dB of attenuation across a broad range of frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz. These voltage variable attenuators are frequently used in applications such as electronic warfare, instrumentation, point-to-point […]
