RF Integration &#151 A Paradigm Shift

The character of RF design has changed quite dramatically in the past few years. It’s quite rare that RF designs are isolated pieces of circuitry, but rather part of a much bigger context. While the classic RF design is seen as a self-contained, small RF module, today’s RF designs typically are much larger and much more complex. Above all, they are multi-technology designs consisting of multiple RF modules integrated with high-speed digital, analog, power, and bias networks, all in close proximity on the same dense circuit board.

(August 27, 2007) SAN JOSE, CA &#151 Discera, Inc., qualified its MEMS-based oscillators with a series of frequency-stability and standard semiconductor qualification and reliability tests, comparing the silicon-based MEMS resonators to quartz for timing devices. Discera tested three separate manufacturing lots to prove process consistency in high-volume production, said Venkat Bahle, VP of marketing, Discera.
