Direct Digital Synthesizers for Phased Array Antennas With this publication the journal unveils a series of articles devoted to Direct Digital Synthesizers (DDS) that permit to produce signals of desired form and frequency with the help of digital methods using a single reference-frequency generator. Such systems more often are used in modern phased array antennas. That’s why we begin with the review of phased array antennas solutions on DDS basis in their historic retrospective.
GaN ICs Claim Vacuum-Tube Devices. Substitution. Competition Escalates Today power of certain GaN transistors and amplifiers in some frequency bands reaches hundred watts. But can GaN devices substitute vacuum-tube devices in critical demanding applications including armament radiosystems? After all vacuum-tube devices development has not been terminated. But gallium nitride consolidates it’s positions at a quick rate.
Akon Inc. Commitment to Perfection Products from Akon Inc., a supplier of microwave devices for airborne, ground based, shipboard and space equipment acquire the leading performers of large-scale defense programs. This is why the company’s serial production scientific and technical level and business strategy that helped it to be in the list of leaders of global market electronic devices despite moderately small labor force is of the utmost interest.
RFID Systems. Versions Formation and Selection Methodology Today the selection of the best RFID system from a variety of its acceptable alternative versions is solved on the basis of empirical arguments without consideration of the problem peculiarities and partial criterions. That’s why a methodology for formation and determination of the best RFID system from a set of alternative fungible but with different characteristics components from different producers is challenging and in demand.
