    In today's industrialized world, the handling of raw materials and goods is an essential part of the supply chain. Liquids-for example water, oil, chemicals, pharmaceutical products, and liquefied gases-are stored in tanks. Bulk solids, on the other hand, are stored in silos and cover a very large variety of materials. Examples include finely granulated substances (grains, powders, sand, plastic p...

    The main goal of surfacegauging radar applications is to obtain a complete image of a surface area inside a closed and possibly tightly sealed container filled with materials having sufficient reflectivity for highfrequency electromagnetic waves. Radar systems are applicable where standard acoustical or optical measurement techniques are strongly impaired due to harsh environmental conditions-such... View full abstract»

    Providing a deeper look beneath the surface is a key function of product security and materials scanners [1]. Until recently, only ultrasonic and X-ray systems made this possible [2]. Now, electromagnetic waves, which allow a view through nonconducting materials, offer a competitive alternative [3]. While examinations using X-ray methods are common, because of required safety regulations, this opt... View full abstract»

    In this article, we compare LNA and SIS mixer technologies, specifically addressing the frequency range of 75-110 GHz (designated the W-band), which is of relevance to ALMA and also for wider use. We briefly describe the principles of operation for each technology as well as typical instrumentation specifications such as device and system noise, bandwidth, and stability. View full abstract»

  • Noise Cancelation? Explained!: The Role of Feedback in Noise-Canceling LNAs and Receivers

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):100 - 109
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5339 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Inductorless wide-band low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) usually suffer from poor noise performance, mainly due to the high noise contribution of the matching device. Noise canceling (NC) is a technique used in wide-band LNAs [1]-[13] to nullify the noise contribution of the matching device at the output. NC techniques are often explained with the help of the block diagram shown in Figure 1(a), where th... View full abstract»

    As wireless communications progress from second to fourth-generation (4G) systems, the information content drastically increases, requiring high-data-rate transmissions. For efficient use of precious spectrum resources, the modulated signals have wider bandwidths (BWs) and higher peak-toaverage power ratios (PAPRs) than previous generations of systems. Therefore, the power amplifier (PA) operates ... View full abstract»
