The growing demand for wireless services not only challenges our limited spectral resources, it also challenges the radio designer to select the correct radio architecture. A proper radio architecture not only provides solid performance, but it simplifies the circuit around the radio to minimize cost, power, and size. In the era of increasing radio deployments, a proper radio is tolerant of current and future wireless neighbors that might otherwise cause interference down the road. This article will examine two common radio architectures and compare the trade-offs on how each solves the unique challenge of growing co-location issues.
Highly Integrated Transceiver with RF Front End Reduces Design Time & Resources
Richardson RFPD engineers and others have teamed with Analog Devices to introduce a new, highly integrated transceiver and have built SoMs and RF front ends to interface with it.
Simple and Affordable RMS Power Meter that Operates from 100 MHz to 40 GHz
RMS-responding RF power meters are widely used in test and measurement applications to precisely and accurately measure the RF power of signals with varying crest factors.
GaN Breaks Barriers—RF Power Amplifiers Go Wide and High
The increasing demand for higher data rates in telecommunications and higher resolution in industrial systems is pushing the frequency of operation higher for the electronics that support them.
