Encapsulated Microwave Inputs for Microelectronics. Foreign and Native Products Hermetically sealed glass-to-metal 50Ω microwave inputs in microwave products with microstrip lines (MSL) perform signal output from MSL. They are utilized as independed elements, but more often they are put to use along with microwave sockets in field replaceable connectors. Currently there are developed and produced microwave inputs of various types and typical sizes. Authors consider the current state-of-art of this technical field.

32-bit MCU 1986ВЕ1Т for On-Board Self-Contained Missile Flight Safety Systems Additional on-board system of a present-day aircraft that follows the pilots operations and takes care of their condition can prevent crew’s errors and human losses. Milandr’s MCU 1986ВЕ1Т is proposed to control this system
System-on-Chip Main Components Optimization. Attainment of Maximum Performance and Minimal Energy Consumption In the process of developing a system-on-chip (SoC) designers must aim to achieve an optimal correlation of performance, energy consumption and required area (PPA – performance, power, area). Selected in a proper manner logic elements and memory compilers libraries allow to achieve preset PPA parameters, while creating tailored for each specific case libraries may not be cheap and efficient. Synopsys provides SoC design tools that permit to achieve optimal results in the shortest possible time.
Electronics on Plastics. Returning… 3D systems with connectors and components back in 1980s had to break through electronics but felled down. The second birth of 3D-MID takes place today due to the advent of new processes and technologies that fulfill electronics miniaturization and functionality requirements by means of plastic elements. This article considers these technologies and utilizable materials.
Native Microwave Electronics. 70 Years of Development. Adapted from Conference Materials May 15–16 2013 in Fryazino was held the jubilee scientific and technical conference dedicated to the 70th anniversary of federal state unitary enterprise NPP Istok.
