The article compares the findings of antenna array characteristics achieved by programs HFSS and CST taking into account adjacent elements mutual influence.
Ethernet Solutions for Special Applications. Home Produced Hardware Components In resent years Ethernet technology has interpenetrated in our life. Ethernet popularity is due to its high data transfer rate, links organization simplicity, connections high reliability and interference suppression. But until later there were no domestic hardware components for it realization. This situation changed with the appearance of Iss Milandr ICs that enabled Ethernet interfaces for special apparatuses.
Metall-Composite Packages with a Cavity as an Alternative to Ceramic and Metall packages for ICs and Semiconductor Devices Current thermoreactive plastic (polymeric) packages almost are not used in systems that must work in severe operating conditions. In this article the analysis results of main characteristics of metal-ceramic, thermoreative packages and metal composite packages on the thermotropic liquid crystal polymer basis are summarized. It was found that quality of metal composite packages is equal to metal-ceramic packages, and their reducibility is equal to plastic packages.
