Providing smaller and more efficient radios and radio subsystems with the use of miniaturized components such as RF transistors, modulators, and amps.
A look at the different trends in reducing the size, which has many complex design engineering trade-offs, and power consumption of wireless systems.
IC-based solid-state RF switches which begin with a SPDT arrangement and are usually built with FETs and PIN diodes as their core switching elements.
A look at the many functions of discrete RF detectors based on signal strength, phase and direction for formats including Bluetooth, GPS and more.
A look at building wireless backhaul for wired networks using technologies such as microwave for rural areas and WiMax for urban networks.
Modulation, in the context of RF applications, refers to the mixing of two sinusoidal signals.
Standard mechanical switches do not work well with RF. At high frequencies, signal coupling can occur across mechanical contact gaps, which can act like a capacitor in a high-pass filter.
