Microwave Acronyms - T

TAB tape automated bonding  
TACS total access communication system Analog cell phone standard.
TC temperature coefficient or thermo-compression or temperature cycle A type of wirebond employing heat.
TCC temperature coefficient of capacitance  
TCE temperature coefficient of resistance (CTE is also used) An approximate measure of how a solid expands or contracts over temperature.
TCR temperature coefficient of resistivity An approximate measure of how a resistor varies over temperature.
TCXO temperature-compensated crystal oscillator  
TDD time division duplex  
TDMA time division multiple access  
TDU time delay unit A network that provides switchable path lengths for delaying a signal by a specified time.
Tn equivalent noise temperature An alternate method of expressing noise figure, often used by scientists with thick glasses.
TE transverse electric A type of waveform associated with waveguides, requires only one closed conductor.
TE test equipment  
TEM transverse electromagnetic A type of waveform that requires two conductors, such as coax or stripline.
TFC thin-film capacitor Capacitors that are formed using thin-film processes, often called MIM (metal-insulator-metal) caps.
TFR thin-film resistor Resistors that are formed using thin-film techniques.
TFN thin-film network A circuit that is processed on a substrate by depositing layers of metals (and sometimes insulators), using etching (and sometimes plating) operations to define features.
TFMSL thin-film microstrip line This type of transmission line is often used on silicon RF devices. Because silicon is not a great insulator, a dielectric layer such as BCB is deposited, then metal is patterned on top to define circuitry.
THz terahertz The region of electro-magnetic spectrum between millimeterwaves and light; 1012 Hertz.
TIA trans-impedance amplifier  
TLA three letter acronym As in, FBI, EWR, WWW, DOS. Cheer up, there are only 17,576 possible TLAs!
TM transverse magnetic A type of waveform associated with waveguides, requires only one closed conductor.
TNC threaded Neill-Concelman A connector developed a long time ago that you might find on older equipment.
TOI third-order intercept  
TPMS tire pressure monitoring system A future government mandate to protect fat stupid people from SUV rollovers
TR, T/R transmit receive A transmit receive element, module, or system.
TRF tuned radio frequency (receiver) A radio architecture from the early 20th century. Mostly abandoned when the superhet was developed.
TRL through reflect line A type of network measurement calibration.
TS thermo-sonic A type of wirebond employing heat and sound waves.
TSA tapered slot antenna Also known as the Vivaldi antenna.
TSSOP thin shrink small outline package One of many package styles.
TTD true time delay A type of phase shifter employing switched lines that are multiple wavelengths long.
TTL transistor-transistor logic Old-school logic standard.
TVAC thermal vacuum chamber Used for simulating the conditions of space flight on electronics.
TVRO television receive only  
TWT traveling wave tube A form of microwave power amplifier. Provides tens of watts to several thousand watts, often with poor noise characteristics but high efficiency. Named after a guy named Wave who was on the road a lot.
TX transmit An abbreviation sometimes used for transmit.
