Digi International unveiled a new enterprise starter kit providing a complete LoRaWAN device-to-cloud solution, marking the company’s expansion into the low power wide area (LPWA) market. The turnkey starter kit offers a scalable, device-to-cloud onboarding experience that saves time, capital, and resources. The Digi solution helps enterprises meet their digital transformation needs with faster time to […]
Understanding the role and implications of impedance in RF transmission lines and antennas is vital to successful system performance. The importance of impedance matching, minimizing reflections, and keeping a low VSWR means these topics have been studied extensively, ranging from analytical perspectives through many physical designs and implementations. This section looks at some matching techniques. […]
A new phased-array user terminal is specifically designed for operation in the higher millimeter-wave (MMW) frequency bands for evolving next-generation communication satellites. The new low-profile antenna, based on ThinKom’s patented VICTS (Variable Inclination Continuous Transverse Stub) technology, will operate in the Q- and V-band frequencies (37.5-42.5 GHz and 47.2-51.4 GHz). These bands have been designated […]
In this video, 5G Technology World spoke with Marvin Test CEO Steve Sargeant about how the company adapted to mass production of mmWave devices and how the pandemic changed its methods of technical support.
Understanding the role and implications of impedance in RF transmission lines and antennas is vital to successful system performance. The previous sections looked at the basics of impedance and VSWR. This section looks at the implications of VSWR measurements. Q: Why should I care about reflected waves due to impedance mismatch and resultant non-unity VSWR? […]
5G can be up to 100 times faster than 4G with 100 times higher data capacity and latency of under one millisecond. What does this mean for PCBs?
Understanding the role and implications of impedance in RF transmission lines and antennas is vital to successful system performance. Part 1 of this article looked at the basics of impedance matching and power transfer. This part looks at the closely related topic of nominal impedance and VSWR. Q: Why all this worry? Aren’t RF systems […]
KINEXON makes industrial connectivity and ultra-precise indoor-localization available for the mass market at a price point comparable to RFID and BLE solutions: With the X-Tag, the company now offers the world’s most cost-efficient UWB-sensor for the industrial Internet of Things. Companies can deploy the X-Tag for previously unfeasible IoT applications and increase their productivity in […]
TT Electronics announced the launch of its S-2CONNECT Creo Development Kit with LTE Cat M1 / NB-IoT to accelerate digital programmes. The kit is designed for software developers who are charged with reducing R&D risk and fast-tracking their IoT application development. The Kit includes the S-2CONNECT Creo system-on-module (SOM), an evaluation board, and accessories, and […]
