MIMO Systems

A Brief Primer on Beams and Streams

In modern radio communications (particularly commercial cellular and Wi-Fi), Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) is a common method of utilizing multiple transmitting and receiving antennas to increase the capacity of the radio link, reduce errors, and maximize speed.

WR10 LNA for W-Band Applications

High Gain & Low NF for W-Band Test Solutions

Rise above the noise floor challenges of W-Band with the Mini-Circuits’ WVA-751103LNX WR10 waveguide LNA. Whether the application is an imaging or cruise control radar, or even satellite communications, the 21 ±3 dB of gain at a typical NF of 3.5 dB eases the burden of characterizing the system.
