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!

IMS 2017 is here.  Stop by booth 749 to visit Microwaves101 and EverythingRF.  Come by for a unique gift (while they last) and enter a raffle!  If you are looking for Steve, you might go around the corner to Booth 851 (Nuvotronics) and tell his coworkers what a great guy he is, and purchase a time delay unit. Even if you are not going to Hawaii, you can take a brief moment to enjoy what's new on Microwaves101 for June 2017...

  • Just in time for summer blockbuster movie season, we re-introduce Microwave Man to microwave engineers.  His published career was back in the 1970s, in DC comics, but his crime career dates from the 1930s when he was kidnapped by aliens.  He was NOT a good guy. Rumor has it Microwave Man is visiting the Microwaves101 booth!

  • The normalized determinate function was first described by Platzker and Struble in a classic IEEE MTT-S paper and GaAs IC symposium paper back in 1993.  NDF stands for normalized determinate function.  If you are a serious power amplifier designer, you will need to dive into this topic, to at least understand the difference between stable and potentially unstable networks by examining origin encirclements of the NDF plotted from  -∞ to + ∞. We now have a new page on NDF, and two pdf files you can download that further describe the technique.

  • On our multi-state simulations part 2 page we offer a new way to create and execute IF statements in ADS.  Thanks to Curtis!

  • We posted a tribute video of Bill Brown, the father of wireless power transfer, find it on the bottom of our rectenna page. Among other things, Bill Brown once won a General Motors design competition, where competitors built a replica of Napoleon's carriage he built for Josephine.

  • We sent out two Microwaves101 pocketknives in May.  Mike received one for pointing out a broken link, and Douglas received one for where-are-they-now updates. See something, say something, get a pocket knife!

  • In honor of IMS in Hawaii this year, the Unknown Editor posts five examples of Surf Music, four are Classics and one is a surprise that many of you will be familiar with for other reasons. He even throws in a microwave reference.

  • Meanwhile on our message board, someone awaits your advice on stability in power amplifiers. This question is what led us to post our new page on NDF.  Here's a discussion on teraghertz scanners, you probably walked through one the last time you traveled by by air. If you don't have an account, create one and start socializing your ideas, questions, and solutions today!

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.
