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!

In advance, we wish you a Saint Paddies Day, which falls on Friday this year!  What are your plans?  Some of us are getting together at  Jersey Jack's house to destroy some three-chord rock.  Gloria, G-L-O-R-I-A... Hopefully, none of this mess will get posted to Youtube. Meanwhile, what's new on Microwaves101 for February 2017?

  • TJ Green sent us a link where you can download white papers on various packaging topics such as hermeticity.  Tom Green previously provided content for our hermeticity page (thanks again!) and is recognized as a subject matter expert in microwave packaging. Look for TJG's white paper link at the top of our cool links page.  Let us know if you have trouble downloading, you will have to go through a registration process.

  • We are working on a new page on parasitic elements you will encounter in microwave engineering. Here you will meet a sarcoptes scabiei... up close and personal.

  • Our Doherty amplifer page was updated, including a nice picture of an Ampleon product suggested by John. We could use some graphs showing the power performance, maybe someone will shoot us some data soon.

  • We have two new mortuary submissions from Tom and from Darrell. Tom's photos are of a polarotor that spent too much time by the sea and lost its link budget.  Darrell's photos are of a  2.92mm airline he bought on Ebay... what could go wrong with purchasing a fragile, precision instrument without a close look at how well it's been treated?

  • "Polarotor" is a portmanteau of polarization rotator.  We've added it to our growing list of portmanteaux in engineering.  While we were at it,  we added contrails and chemtrails.  Put on your tin hat and hope the sylphs are able to digest all those chemicals the government is spraying on us!

  • Speaking of link budgets, we have a new link-calculator spreadsheet in the download area, courtesy of Texas Instruments. 

  • The Unknown Editor spouts off on gym etiquette, cleanliness, and taking care of yourself. Now hit the showers! 

  • Over on our discussion board, there are several new questions (and answers).  Here's a discussion of the EMI shielding of silver-loaded epoxy.  Anyone have any experience with using third part recruiters for filling engineering positions?  Another thread on microwave weapons was started, it is not a very practical topic but it was created by a science fiction writer so feel free to throw out some alternative facts.  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.
