What's new on Microwaves101?

As is always the case, we've been busy adding plenty of new features to Microwaves101. We ain't been slack, Cap'n Walker!

We wish you a belated happy MLK Day from Microwaves101!   What's new on Microwaves101 for January 2017?

  • Microwaves101 is now a proud media sponsor of the Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits Symposium (CSICS)! The call for papers is now open - check it out, submit a proposal, join us in Miami next October.

  • Quality factor has a new page.  First we describe a non-microwave example, then we dive into Q of a transmission line.

  • We have been looking for Vlad, the engineer who created the filter calculator we offer as a download. If you know how to contact him, tell him to contact us.

  • From Ernest, we have a technique for creating N-way splits by cascading Wilkison power dividers, for applications requiring large numbers of outputs, including odd numbers such as 5-way and 7-way. In gratitude for his contribution, we have awarded Ernest the coveted Microwaves101 pocketknife!

  • Power conditioning circuits is a new page. This page ties together existing material with some new material, in particular the video on voltage regulators we introduced two weeks ago, and a new page on linear regulars.

  • We have a rule of thumb for chip-and-wire silicon ICs... when you design a module, you need to consider the backside voltage of the silicon die.  More often than not, you should set it to the most negative potential on the chip.  In the case of a negative linear regulator, set it to Vin.

  • Jacob contributed some photos to the microwave mortuary of Nokia RF boards that were in the bargain bin....

  • The Unknown Editor spouts off on Christmas, in a Special Sports Edition, and introduces a gift for rabid New England Patriot fans. By special request, he adds his powerful intellect and reasoning to provide needed perspective on the recent US presidential election. Also, we wanted to celebrate Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize for Literature. 

  • Over on our discussion board, there are several new questions (and answers) in the CAD topic area, and we've got some good advice for storing coax connectors. Stop by the main discussion board page, pick a topic, and drop your own two cents in on these topics and many more!

  • Want to become an official  Microwaves101 reviewer? Click the Reviewers Tab at the top of most pages to find out how. 

Attention forward thinking microwave marketeers: check out information on advertising with us. Sponsorship information is but a click away... come and share the magic of 15,000 page views per weekday. Hey that rhymes!

As always, we want you to sign up for the MW101Stuff newsletter, or submit a photo for our Microwave Mortuary. We'd love to hear from you, whether you have nice things to say about Microwaves101.com or just want to tell us how we've ruined your life.
