Leveraging the Precision of Ion Beam Milling Vs. Chemical Etching of Thin Film Circuits

by SemiGen Manufacturing thin film circuits using an anisotropic ion beam milling process has long been considered a more precise and repeatable approach over the more random and uncontrollable process of material subtraction via chemical etching. This paper describes experiments conducted by Ion Beam Milling, Inc. (now SemiGen, and heretofore referred to as such) that […]

Arbitrary Waveform Generator

The AWG70000B Series arbitrary waveform generator has new features that enable it to fully support the testing of complex electronic warfare and wireless communications systems that require the ability to dynamically alter signal sequences during test scenarios. In complex test scenarios, engineers and researchers need flexibility to accurately recreate real-world signals and cycle through fast-changing […]


The Mad Rush for Spectrum: No Slice Too Small

by Justin Pollock, PhD, KP Performance Antennas Ever since 4G made video streaming and other data-intensive applications possible there’s been a mad rush by the cellular industry to secure as much spectrum as possible. It’s not alone, as Wi-Fi, Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), and other services are competing for the remaining scraps of spectrum […]
