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!
Choosing the right RF coaxial cable from thousands of options on the market can be a daunting task. Review the fundamentals of cable construction, connector types, performance parameters and common tradeoffs in this guide to choosing the right cable for your application.
Designers are finding new techniques to improve system performance with Mini-Circuits’ patented reflectionless filters all the time. Learn how reflectionless filters can be used to minimize the effect of switching transients and other non-linear products in wideband ADCs.
Ever get confused about the differences between directional, bi-directional and dual-directional couplers? Here’s everything you need to know about the different coupler types, their functions and common applications.
Understand the effects of phase and amplitude unbalances on power handling in power splitters and combiners.
Ultra-wideband or “UWB” technology has become the focus of a promising variety of emerging applications from consumer devices to short-range M2M communications and more. See how Mini-Circuits reflectionless filters solve some of the challenges associated with filtering wide passbands while meeting FCC requirements.
Baluns and ununs are as essential in RF and microwave signal chains as they are confusing to engineers working with them. Review the basics, key parameters, different types and common applications of these critical building blocks for any circuit utilizing both single-ended and balanced architectures.
Reflections from out of band signals in multiplier chains have been a longstanding problem for circuit designers grappling with unwanted effects of frequency translation. This experiment shows how reflectionless filters can eliminate standing waves and dramatically improve conversion loss efficiency when paired with frequency doublers and X4 multiplier chains.
