Our Editorial Director, Publisher and Associate Publisher have more than100 years combined experience in the technology we cover, with more than 60 years of that time in technology publishing. With both engineering design and product marketing experience, we have the perfect combination to serve our engineering readers as well as our advertising clients.

High Frequency Electronics has the mission of providing an exchange of ideas among engineers. Our hands-on design experience and many years of industry participation allows us to wisely select the right mix of subject matter, at the right technical depth for engineers of all experience levels. We like to think of our magazine as delivering a “chapter a month” of essential tutorial, applications-oriented and advanced material — an ongoing textbook for the continuing education and professional development of our readers.

In keeping with our attention to substantive content, our magazine is designed to present technical material clearly, with a clean, highly readable layout. This approach has a benefit to advertisers — ads stand out prominently when articles do not have unnecessary artistic frills.

Every issue of High Frequency Electronics is available online — with exactly the same appearance as the printed issues, in the universally accessible PDF format. The Online Edition is interactive, too. Readers can simply click on an ad to reach that company’s web site. Our web site also includes news headlines, events listings, supporting information for authors and advertisers, plus new and renewal subscription services. Every past article we have published is archived for download by any interested web visitor. The Archives is the most-visited part of our web site!

We take pride in our professionalism, knowledge and cooperative attitude when dealing with advertisers. We can help you develop a marketing and advertising plan with the options of print ads, web site banners, direct mail, e-mail marketing, print brokering, and many other service options. Contact the advertising sales representative in your area, or inquire with the Publisher or Editorial Director. 

High Frequency Electronics reaches more than 20,000 “Design Engineers utilizing RF and Microwave Technology,” qualified within one year.  (Source:?BPA International, June 2010 Circulation Statement)

Microwave Assemblies

Times Microwave Systems announced its new InstaBend™ high performance microwave assemblies. InstaBend microwave assemblies provide a flexible preassembled design for interconnects between RF circuit cards, modules and enclosure panels. InstaBend is ideal for in-the-box applications with space constraints including space flight, thermal vacuum, microwave test, and many other commercial and military applications. The cable can be bent very closely behind the connector, minimizing footprint, saving space and simplifying cable routing. This also eliminates the need to protect the back of the connector.

94GHz Socket for LGA56

Ironwood Electronics introduced new LGA socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 94 GHz, very low inductance for ATE applications. The GTP-LGA-1002 socket is designed for 10x10 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 94 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. Contact resistance is typically 30 milliohms per pin. Socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by. This socket utilizes swivel lid for initial setup. Once test program is verified, lid and protruded screws are removed.

Qorvo® to Create State-of-the-Art Semiconductor Packaging Center

Qorvo® has been selected by the U.S. government to create a State-of-the-Art (SOTA) Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging (SHIP) RF production and prototyping center. The SHIP program will ensure that microelectronics packaging expertise and leadership is available for both U.S. defense contractors and commercial clients that require design, validation, assembly, test and manufacturing of next-generation RF components.

The exclusive SHIP Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), worth up to $75 million, was awarded to Qorvo by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division. This program is funded by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering’s (OUSD R&E) Trusted and Assured Microelectronics Program (T&AM), and is administered by the Strategic & Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted System (S²MARTS) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), managed by National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL).

Under the SHIP program, Qorvo will design and deliver the highest levels of heterogeneous packaging integration. This is essential to meet the size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) requirements for next-generation phased array radar systems, unmanned vehicles, electronic warfare platforms and satellite communications.
