Sometimes a simple trick can save a lot of time and headaches. See how Mini-Circuits 2.92 mm and 2.4 mm NMD adapters can protect your high-frequency test instrumentation from damage and save on other common lab expenses.
Go deep into the challenges and complexities of additive phase noise measurement and learn about the techniques Mini-Circuits uses in its labs to minimize interference and achieve accurate, reliable results.
Learn the fundamentals of the science behind RF semiconductors in the first article in our new series exploring Mini-Circuits’ MMIC technology. Review everything from atomic structures and band gap theory to different material types, junctions and much more!
Today’s RF transceiver designs are using differential circuits for more of the signal chain before the ADC and after the DAC. See how Mini-Circuits’ LTCC dual/differential filters and integrated balun-filters provide an ideal solution for anti-aliasing while simplifying implementation and saving board space.
Different signal types require different measurement methods. Review the differences between peak/envelope and RMS power detectors as well as common use cases, and learn about Mini-Circuits’ latest models for applications up to 43.5 GHz.
Phase noise is increasingly a concern for high-performance transceiver designs, and a number of customers have asked us about phase noise specs for our amplifiers. Our new white paper explains the various sources of additive phase noise in RF amplifiers as well as typical application requirements and measurement challenges.
Learn about the differences in how Class-A, B, AB, C and other classes of solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) are biased and how they perform with respect to linearity, efficiency and output power.
High-frequency packaging has historically been a significant factor in total BOM costs. See how Mini-Circuits has developed innovative techniques for to push frequency range of standard, over-molded QFN packaging up to 50 GHz!
