Addressing the Growth in 5G with Keithley's 2306-LAN Battery Charger and Simulator Friday, December 17, 2021
New innovations in technology have allowed us to begin adopting 5G communication network which allows users to share data at a pace that is 3 to 5 times faster than that of 4G (J.P.Morgan, 2021). By 2030, the 5G market is expected to exceed $180 billion just in North America alone (J.P.Morgan, 2021). As more users begin to switch to 5G, the demand for more wireless devices has increased and so has …

3 Radiation Hazards (RADHAZ) and How to Mitigate Risk Wednesday, September 8, 2021
If you are involved in military, aerospace or defense and have been around radar and communication systems, with high-power RF transmitters and high-gain antennas, you are probably aware of the many risks associated with Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) Hazards. RF emissions from these systems have the potential to cause catastrophic damage to operations and maintenance personnel, ordnance and …
Monitoring the wireless spectrum for interference
3 System Design Challenges with Spectrum Monitoring Tuesday, September 7, 2021
The wireless spectrum is a finite commodity that is tightly regulated, managed and shared by all nations, manufacturers and citizens, who risk being fined if they are caught operating outside of what's regulated or licensed. The presence of interference or other signals of interest creeping into one's band of wireless spectrum is a daily occurrence to some and is of great concern to many who may …

Real-time Digital Signal Processing for Electronic Warfare Systems Monday, August 2, 2021
Evaluating and characterizing wideband communications, radar and electronic warfare systems in real time is challenging. Lacking a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) alternative, some radar test teams stream test data to an inherently non-deterministic computing device such as a PC or laptop, inevitably leading to lost or missing data with no ability to verify that data is being recorded as expected …

A 3-Step Process to Identify Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Monday, July 26, 2021
Radiated emissions, most often referred to as electromagnetic interference (EMI), are carefully regulated to ensure reliable operation and safety for users of electrical and electronic equipment. Regulations limit the allowable radiated emissions, and to keep their products within these limits, designers invest significant time and effort. One reason why EMI poses challenges is that emissions are …
