Well, Blow My Ear Off

August 3, 2004 5:23 am | Product Releases | Comments

Ern Worthman, Technology and Editorial Director Every now and then I have to take a bit of editorial license and find the humor in, what most of the time is, serious business. In this particular case, I'm referring to the emerging fuel cell industry. Now don't get me wrong. I'm a big proponent of fuel cells technology....

Understanding Mixers

August 3, 2004 5:22 am | Product Releases | Comments

Often a mixer data sheet does not specify intercept point, so a rule-of-thumb estimate can easily be made by examining the 1dB compression point. As RF input level s increased, there is a point where the conversion loss will increase. A convenient point of reference is a 1 dB compression point....
