Minimizing PiM generation from RF cables and connectors
May 24, 2012 // SanTron // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 2Mo
Understanding mechanical tolerances, coaxial design details and connector materials used in cable assemblies helps produce communications equipment with the lowest levels of passive intermodulation (PIM).
Communications system interference can come in many forms, but one of the most difficult to defeat is passive intermodulation (PiM) distortion. Unlike noise, which tends
to cover broad bandwidths and is easily filtered, PiM results in discrete signals that fall within the operating bandwidth of a wireless communications receiver, capable of blocking desired signals. at sufficiently high magnitudes, PiM distortion can desensitize a communications receiver, resulting in poor quality of calls in a cellular system or even dropped calls.
Reliable communications system performance depends on minimizing PiM and choosing the right cable assemblies can go a long way towards helping to shave PiM distortion.

This month, Trinamic Motion Control is offering you to win one of four TMCM-1043 development kits for its highly integrated, NEMA 17-compatible TMCM-1043 stepDancer stepper motor module.
Offering designers an easy-to-use PC-based GUI that allows one-click modification of motor drive current, micro-stepping and other key parameters, the intuitive kits are custom designed and developed for direct mounting on a NEMA 17 motor. Pre-programmed and pre-configured with all operating parameters to support standard 1.5A (peak) motors, the TMCM-1043 board uses Trinamic´s single-axis TMC2660 stepper motor driver IC, which integrates a motor pre-driver and power MOSFETs.
