AdauraTech Helps Ensure Wireless Products Actually Work in the Real World with New RF Attenuators Posted by Andrew Miller on August 1, 2017 Introduction of a New 4-Channel RF Attenuator with Greater Chain-to-Chain Isolation Ensures Ultra-High Performance for Demanding Wireless Applications Roseville, CA – July 25, 2017 – As the introduction of new wireless and IoT products accelerates, far too often the testing of these products is neglected due to cost and complexity, leading to negative performance and… Read More Posted in USB 4-Channel RF Attenuator. Ultra Performance Requirement For A Digital Attenuators in MIMO Applications Posted by Blaise Yen on June 6, 2017 Introduction Digital Programmable Attenuators are routinely used in radio performance testing to simulate path loss. MIMO technology enables the use of multiple streams of data to boost throughput. The number of streams is also increasing from the 2×2 of only a few years ago to 8×8 and soon to be even higher. Multiple channel… Read More Posted in Blog, RF Test Engineering, USB 4-Channel RF Attenuator. How to Select the Right Microwave Attenuator Posted by Blaise Yen on May 23, 2017 Selecting the right microwave attenuator for RF testing applications can be a bit daunting. There are a number of device specifications that engineers need to consider, and buying a substandard or inadequate testing device (or even a fleet of devices) can be an expensive mistake. Before we get into characteristics, it’s worth covering briefly what… Read More Posted in RF Test Engineering. Your Guide to Digital RF Attenuators Posted by Blaise Yen on May 23, 2017 In this blog post, we’re going to dive a little bit deeper into the core capabilities of a digital RF attenuator to provide you with some touchstones when assessing their merits and utility in your own testing applications. Attenuators, as you probably already know, control the amplitude, or strength, a signal in a high-frequency RF… Read More Posted in RF Test Engineering. The Benefits of Variable RF Attenuators Posted by Blaise Yen on May 23, 2017 In testing applications where the power of a signal needs to be continuously or regularly varied, variable RF attenuators come into play. In these devices, the resistor networks commonly found in fixed or step attenuators tend to be swapped out for solid-state metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) or PIN (so named because a p-type and… Read More Posted in RF Test Engineering. Evaluating Programmable RF Attenuators Posted by Blaise Yen on May 23, 2017 Programmable attenuators are a vital piece of equipment in almost every advanced RF testing environment, whether it’s a full-blown lab or a simple cube. They differ from fixed attenuators in that they’re able to produce different values of RF signal attenuation on demand, and they differ from basic variable or step attenuators because that value… Read More Posted in RF Test Engineering. Selecting the Right RF Attenuator for Your Environment Posted by Blaise Yen on April 25, 2017 In RF testing, precision is everything. That’s why any engineer will emphasize how essential it is to have the right tools for the job. Using the wrong kind of equipment makes about as much sense—and promises as much accuracy—as using pliers to drive in a screw. Although RF attenuators are slightly more complex than that,… Read More Posted in Blog, RF Test Engineering.
