IEEE AP/MTT Atlanta Chapter Presents: Vacuum Electronics to Power MMW Applications
December 5, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The benefits of operating in the millimeter wave or extremely high frequency (EHF) region of the electromagnetic spectrum (spanning from 30 to 300 GHz) are well known to the RF electronics system designer. Of course the challenges of working in this spectral region are also well documented, including high signal attenuation, tight antenna pointing accuracy, and general lack of system components, especially RF sources.
Device development over the last decade has served to significantly increase the transmitter designer’s toolbox for mm-wave RF power sources. As will be described, compact, efficient mm-wave vacuum electronics devices and integrated power amplifiers have been developed over essentially the entire EHF band. Examples of development at L3 will be discussed along with a discussion of applications.
