Multifunction RF Power Amplifiers for Space Applications

NASA envisions that data throughput and size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) requirements levied on future space exploration vehicles due to resource constraints will necessitate that a different approach is taken for communications and radar. Rather than employing individual systems for short-range communications, long-range communications, and radar, respectively, a common architecture would need to be

High Power Switched Filter Bank Options for RF Communications and Electronic Warfare (EW) Applications

A Switched Filter Bank is a device that combines switches and filters to provide user-selectable frequency channels. Switched filter banks are beneficial to Radio Frequency (RF) communication systems and are utilized in both receivers and transmitters to reduce signal interference from harmonics, spurious emissions, strong signal interferers, and to limit noise power for optimized system

MMICs vs. Discrete Circuits, What Are the Trade-Offs?

One of the major decisions that a Power Amplifier (PA) Module designer must make in the development process is the choice of architecture that they will utilize in the amplification circuit. The two most widely used options are to pursue a Monolithic Microwaves Integrated Circuit (MMIC) or to design around discrete components. Each of these
