    Altium Designer 15 - inconsistencies with schematic and PCB synchronisation

    Hi, Have you tried to reset the Unique ID of the problematic components?

    differences between low noise and low phase noise ampilifier

    Low Noise amplifiers is one that doesn't adds a lot of white noise (Low Noise figure) Low Phase Noise is one that doesn't have a lot of impact on the phase of the input signal due to non-linearity i.e. AM-PM

    [SOLVED] How we can Decide for set BB gain, IF gain, RF gain???

    Re: How we can Decide for set BB gain,IF gain,RF gain??? Hi, For the transmitter part: 1. You should set most of the gain on BB, since any noise that will be added in last stages, will not be amplified too much, increasing the Noise Floor. 2. For the receiver it is just the opposite, consider...

    Spiral inductor substrate and parameter info

    You can use any substrate you want as long as you satisfied with the Er and TanD of the material. It is all about trade-offs, if you want higher BW you should choose higher TanD, but then you will have more dielectric losses. Choosing higher Er will give you smaller structures, but then you will...

    Spiral inductor substrate and parameter info

    Transmission lines are very narrow band, so if you need higher BW you should go with the LC circuit. Regarding the units, you didn't mentioned the software you are suing. In ADS you can change your project parameters from metric to imperial and visa versa or to convert it with calculator...

    [moved] Circuit to detect 240 or 380 volts AC

    Sure, you can do it that way, just make sure you are using components with the right voltage rating.

    question on electrical length in basic patch antenna

    Well, if you noticed there are different types of feeding shown on these pictures. Usually, once the TL becomes 50 Ohm the lengths is not critical. Anyway, you need to simulate in 3D the whole structure.

    question on antenna adaptation

    You should look for example at your radiation and cross polarization patterns , efficiency, gain, return loss. Make sure all these and other parameter are in spec over your frequency range.

    question on electrical length in basic patch antenna

    If you are talking about the feed of the antenna and it is not part of the matching network, then the length doesn't matter as long as it is 50Ohm TL.

    SNR, P1dB relationship

    The P1dB is when your amplifier is starts to compress the output signal. Think about the information that you have in the amplitude of your signal (AM or OOK, or QAM modulations), once this signal is compressed you start to loos information and thus the SNR is degrading. It is happening also...

    15 Watt RF Power Amplifier Selection 140-170 MHz

    Hi, It looks like you can squeeze 15W from this device at the required frequencies. You should ask for S-parameters from the vendor and check stability and matching. R.

    Should a good RF engineer have a soldering capability?

    Hi, Definitely, a good RF&MW engineer should be very good at soldering. Of coarse, for the small components (0201, 0402, 0603) you should use microscope. R.

    Radar Pulse to Pulse phase stability

    The formula is for converting Integrated Phase Noise from deg to DB. So, my question is, if this formula is also applies to Pulse to Pulse stability, if not does anyone know the right one? Again, I'm not asking for the meaning and the purpose this measurement, its just that there are 2 types of...

    [SOLVED] Relationship between inductor and transmission line (or long wire)

    Inductor is Lumped component and Transmission line is a Distributed component. Any transmission line with length less then ~1/10 of a wavelength is considered as Lumped, this means that depending on the working frequency same wire can be just an inductor or a TL. Go to the basics and read about...

    Antenna average gain vs peak gain

    The peak gain is the point in 3D space where the antenna gain has maximum value, while the average gain is averaging all the points in that 3D space.

    Radar Pulse to Pulse phase stability

    This is not true, you can express phase difference in logarithmic form without loosing the information. I was thinking about Phase[dB]=20LOG10(Phase[deg]*Pi/180). Thus for 4deg peak to peak stability it will be equal to ~-30dB. Please explain why the above is can't be correct.

    ADS layout_generate from schematic

    Hi, You need to add real passive components to your schematic, which will represent Pads and traces with real dimensions, otherwise ADS doesn't know how to place the components.

    what is the range of NRF24l01+PA+LNA ?

    What is the gain of the PA, LNA and the antenna, once you know these, you can use a simple calculator: https://www.pasternack.com/t-calculator-link-budget.aspx
