OMRON’s MEMS switch has a SPDT（Single Pole Double Throw） contact configuration. Two MEMS chips that have a SPST (Single Pole Single Throw） contact configuration are installed on the ceramic package using the flip chip bonding method as shown Figure 1.
The Symmetricom® QUANTUM™ Chip Scale Atomic Clock (SA.45s CSAC) delivers the accuracy and stability of an atomic clock to portable applications for the first time. Atomic clocks have enabled a world where ultra-precise timekeeping is now mandatory for communications, navigation, signal processing and many other applications critical to a modern functioning society.
The next generation of the 802.11 standard – known as IEEE 802.11ac – promises to finally break the wireless Ethernet gigabit barrier. This technology will deliver higher bandwidth while retaining better quality of experience (QoE) for end users, and is expected to be adopted rapidly into all markets: residential, enterprise, carrier and large venue.
Emerson & Cuming Microwave Products announces the release of its newest white paper, “Theory and Application of RF/Microwave Absorbers”. This white paper explores the theory and application of microwave absorbers. Virtually every component of a microwave system uses absorbers. Proper choice of absorber materials is a cost effective way to enhance design.
The performance requirements of new mobile terminals will continue to increase dramatically due to the growing demand for higher data rate applications. To overcome this increased end-user performance requirement, new mobile terminals are being developed utilizing the recent advances in the multi-antenna Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) technique.
By Stefan Pongratz, Anritsu Corporation The cable and antenna system plays a crucial role of the overall performance of a Base Station system. Degradations and failures in the antenna system may cause poor voice quality or dropped calls. From a carrier standpoint, this could eventually result in loss of revenue.
