X-Microwave System Overview
Growing investments in 5G, satcom, and defense electronics are increasing the accessibility and performance of RF and Microwave semiconductors while dramatically reducing their cost. RF engineers must design new systems faster, more efficiently, and with higher chances of first pass design success to take advantage of the growing market opportunity. While simulation has transformed the early stages of the design process, little has changed over the last 6 decades in the physical process of characterizing components, prototyping systems, and integrating designs for production. Improving design reuse is an obvious way to achieve these objectives, yet it has never been implemented on a broad scale through RF building blocks. In this 15-minute video we introduce the X-MWsystem and X-MWblocks® to maximize design reuse in the prototyping, through production of RF and Microwave systems from DC to 60 GHz and beyond.
