How to set up radar testing with FMCW and chirp capability using low-cost programmable RF signal generators

FMCW and chirp (pulsed linear frequency modulated) radar are some of the most common radars used globally. These types of radar are designed for electronic warfare (EW) and defense, as well as a variety of commercial aerospace applications. In the case of defense, FMCW and chirp signals are commonly used in terrain-following radar for under-the-radar flying, surveillance, and for targeting systems.

5G And AI, The Key Ingredients to Future Tech Innovations

The use cases for AI continue to grow for customers and enterprises, opening limitless possibilities that were considered pure science fiction a few decades ago. At the same time, 5G networks are becoming more widely available following its global roll out, delivering internet speed that is 10 times greater than 4G, at a fraction of the latency. Taken alone, both 5G and AI have enormous potential in their own right. However, when combined, they have the power to transform industrial technology on a huge scale.
