Is the Internet finally coming of age?

February 2, 2004 7:38 am | Product Releases | Comments

Ern Worthman, Technology and Editorial Director Shortly after this Christmas season ended I was watching one of those faux-news, all hype consumer networks, like CNN or FNN, or CNBC or something like that and they played a story that caught my attention. It was on of those spikes that you see from time to time that lends credibility to the claims pundits make about the Internet being the next great vehicle for interstellar commerce....

Simulation-Oriented Design of Power Dividers

February 2, 2004 6:52 am | Product Releases | Comments

Microwave systems often need distributed RF power to various paths, for multiple applications. The easiest way to accomplish this is with power divider circuits. Working with simulators for low-frequency lumped element power dividers helps the engineer design the optimum product, at the lowest cost and with minimum aggravation....
