Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Partners with Intuitive Machines and Mini-Circuits to Design Historic Lunar Lander
Mini-Circuits is proud to support Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Intuitive Machines in designing a historic lunar lander, Nova-C, that will push the boundaries of space exploration. Nova-C is equipped with a camera that will capture the first ever spacecraft landing from a third-person point-of-view.
James Clerk Maxwell: Equations that Set the Foundation for the RF Industry
This June we’re celebrating the birth of James Clerk Maxwell, considered a founding father of modern physics and engineering for his four classical equations that proposed the existence of electromagnetic radiation. His discoveries are regarded with equal reverence to those of Newton and Einstein, and their profound impact on the development of RF technology remains fundamental to our field today.
SmallSats and the Future of Space Surveillance Technology
The development of small satellites or "SmallSats" has accelerated the proliferation of satellite technology by dramatically reducing mission costs and enabling entirely new architectures. See how Mini-Circuits is helping HawkEye360 provide powerful space-based intelligence to stop illegal fishing and poaching, improve cellular network coverage and more.

The RF Systems Powering Scientific Study of Climate Change
It's Earth Day, and we're looking at some of the ways RF technology supports the vast networks of instruments and systems scientists use to observe and measure changes in the climate.
Capacitance, Heterodyning and The Strange Music of the Theremin
See how basic principles of capacitance and heterodyning come together in the unique music of the theremin, an electronic instrument you play without touching it.
Discovering Invisible Waves: The Life and Accomplishments of Heinrich Hertz
The discoveries of German physicist Heinrich Hertz transformed our understanding of electromagnetism and laid the foundation for wireless communication and the rise of the RF industry. Learn more about his life and work.
Engineer, Scholar, Pioneer: A Look at the Legacy of Edith Clarke
Mini-Circuits celebrates the accomplishments of Edith Clarke, widely recognized as the first woman electrical engineer. Her pursuit of a career in the exclusively male-dominated engineering industry was only one of the many obstacles Clarke overcame in her life. Learn more about her extraordinary journey on our blog.
Radio History: The Rise, Fall and Resurrection of LORAN
LORAN, short for long range navigation, was the first system developed by the United States capable of pinpointing a receiver’s location. Learn how this revolutionary technology helped military and civilian ships navigate the ocean for nearly 60 years.
Radio History: Titanic’s Wireless Officer and the Spark Gap Telegraph
The first wireless device, the spark-gap telegraph, was mainly used for maritime communication, but it’s famous for more than revolutionizing long-distance communication. It was outfitted on one of the most famous ships in history, the Titanic. Read about the telegraph’s contribution to maritime communication and how Titanic’s telegraphist contributed to the ship’s untimely demise.
