Creating Value in the RF Supply Chain
Designing in a part may eventually be as simple as picking a part number out of a catalog, plugging it in, and bingo! It works. In this future, you don’t have to think anymore. And if that’s the direction we’re headed, how will we, as an industry, define value?
Sustaining Growth through Innovation in a Changing Industry
New demands for more advanced, higher frequency products are being driven by the aggressive targets to define and roll out new wireless standards, new investments in K-band and Ka-band SatCom systems, and development of new capabilities for defense applications.
New Partnership with X-Microwave Gives Mini-Circuits Customers New Design Capabilities
X-Microwave developed the industry’s first truly modular evaluation system for RF/microwave components and integrated assemblies. On Aug. 8, Mini-Circuits and X-Microwave announced their collaboration to offer a wide selection of Mini-Circuits components in X-Microwave block drop-in format.
Hi-Rel Components for Space Applications
Mini-Circuits has a successful track record of screening components for space applications, and our experience in this area has led to robust testing and qualification programs for the parts we supply for these systems.
A Guide to Surface-Mount Assembly
What automated soldering methods can be considered for Mini-Circuits surface-mount components? There are two basic methods: reflow and wave soldering. Read more about the benefits and purposes of each method.
Impact of Date Code Age Restrictions on Quality, Service, and Value
Extensive studies done by industry leaders, NASA and the U.S. military have shown substantial evidence that in modern storage environments, time intervals of five years or longer between manufacture of components and shipment to OEMs pose virtually no risk to the quality or reliability of electronic products.
Finding a Win-Win: The Dilemma of Consolidation
On the surface, consolidation may look like a win-win for the stakeholders involved, but it comes with a hidden cost, and unfortunately, customers are getting stuck with the bill.
Small Quantity Tape and Reel Splicing
Several years ago, Mini-Circuits CEO, Harvey Kaylie identified a void in the market: customers who were unable to justify purchasing a full-reel quantity of surface-mount components, but wanted smaller quantities packed for automated pick-and-place process.
Setting Higher Standards in the Race to Next Generation Wireless
At Mini-Circuits, Setting Higher Standards is part of our motto, and it’s never been more relevant. The recent proliferation and evolution of wireless standards like 802.xx, 4G and 5G are pushing wireless technologies to higher frequencies, greater levels of complexity, smaller size, and greater efficiency at an unprecedented pace.
High-Dynamic-Range MMIC Amplifier Supports CATV Upstream and Downstream Applications
Mini-Circuits' PGA-122-75+ 75Ω MMIC amplifier is designed and characterized for CATV applications with a frequency range of 40 to 1500 MHz, making it suitable for use in the downstream path.
Modulators: Introduction & Measurement Schemes
Mini-Circuits offers QPSK (quadrature phase-shift keying) and I&Q modulators from 10% bandwidth to as much as 5:1 octave span. So there's no longer any need to gather double-balanced mixers and 0° and 90° hybrids to assemble "in-house" QPSK or l&Q modulators.
