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!

Thanks for stopping by the Microwaves101 booth if you were in Hawaii for IMS 2017.  Remember that time we scanned your badge because you were hoping to win those sweet and original Microwave Man comic books?  Here is your real reward, you are getting this email!  Now you can sit back, pretend to work, and see what's new on Microwaves101 for July 2017, and every other month for the rest of your life.  It's easy to unsubscribe if you feel that way about it...

  • Our SNP data formatting page has had a major rewrite. Turns out we had the order of two-port S-parameters wrong. In our defense, for SNP files of higher order, our description of an SNP was correct. Why are S-parameters in S2P files in a different order from S3P files?  The real reason might be lost to history, but we presented our theory. Thanks to Jon for pointing out the problem with the page, and thanks to Terry for explaining the disparity.

  • We created three new pages on graceful degradation. Our main graceful degradation page will eventually tie several topics together, a place to talk about why every engineer should plan for failure or misuse of their "baby". The topic is particularly appropriate this month after the tragic apartment fire in London, which was arguably caused by engineers allowing management to cut costs and improve the bottom line. Our graceful degradation in SSPAs page uses content that was moved from a page on power combining which was getting too long. The Big News is we have brand new content on a page we call how to size isolation resistors in SSPAs. Here you will learn how to use harmonic balance simulations of various failure modes to predict worst case dissipations.

  • Our Darpa microwave programs page was updated to include programs from the past ten years (has it really been that long since we updated it?) If you have a favorite Darpa program that is missing or want to suggest a link, send it in!

  • The Unknown Editor (and Brenda) review the recent IMS 2017 in Hawaii. Even though the official theme was "5G", we still  don't know what that is! As always at IMS, lots of good technical interchange and fun distractions were available.

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.
