New Application Note Describes the Design of a 10 GHz LNA for Amateur Radio Operation

EL SEGUNDO, CA, Mar. 15, 2016 -- Ham radio operation at 10 GHz is somewhat exotic, being far removed from global shortwave communication typically below 30 MHz. So when the design of a 10 GHz ham radio station was originally discussed within the amateur radio community, one of the key components that was missing in order to make this a reality included a good low-noise amplifier (LNA). This application note describes how an LNA was custom made utilizing NI AWR Design Environment™, inclusive of Microwave Office software, to bring a 10 GHz ham radio station into operation.
