Featured Technology Cell Searching in the UMTS Wideband CDMA Layer

January 21, 2004 9:13 am | Product Releases | Comments

Efficient cell search procedures in next generation wideband CDMA systems are critical for reliable and robust performance. Knowing how this is handled in the physical layer should be part of every designers skill set. By Louis Litwin The physical layer of the UMTS WCDMA standard for third-generation cellular systems uses DSSS modulation with a chip rate of 3....

Using ADS to Design an MMIC Amplifier

January 21, 2004 9:07 am | Product Releases | Comments

This application note illustrates, through the design of a MMIC amplifier, common problems faced in designing, simulating, and producing the physical layout of an MMIC circuit, as well as validation steps needed to verify that the physical layout produces the desired result. By Andy Howard The amplifier design process depends on a number of factors, including desired specifications, availability of device models, designer preferenc...

Time to Think Hard About Interoperability

January 20, 2004 8:04 am | Product Releases | Comments

Ern Worthman, Technology and Editorial Director This isn't news to my regular readers, but just in case you're tuning in for the first few times, I'm a technofreak! I'm the kind of guy whose addiction is technology. I just had to add an electronic hop-up module to modify my fuel/RPM/timing brainbox on my motorcycle (105 horsepower at the rear wheels isn't enough?)....
