An Overview of Antenna Systems in Millimeter-Wave Radar Applications

by Pasternack Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology is playing a central role in next generation radar and wireless communications. With the already massive demand for spectrum space in the 2.4/5 GHz bands, the Ka-Band and beyond provide expansive spectrum availability and flexibility. Already implemented in automotive and many security applications, mm-wave imaging radar enables self-driving and nearly […]

Free-Running Reference Oscillators

Six new free-running reference oscillators generate a highly stable and accurate output frequency response with low phase noise and spurious performance levels, making them ideal in phase locked loops, function generators, frequency synthesizers and receivers for communication, radar, navigation, surveillance, and test and measurement applications. These free-running, fixed-tuned oscillators use a high-stability internal crystal reference […]
