Tutorial on Microwave and mm-Wave Components and Modules

In this episode Shahriar demos various microwave and mm-wave connectors, components and modules. The purpose of this video is to help new engineers become familiarized with microwave components and help reduce the chance of component damage and failure.

This video demonstrates microwave connectors (BNC, SMA, 3.5mm, 2.92mm (K), 2.4mm, 1.85mm (V), 1.0mm), interfacing instructions, attenuators, power splitters (both resistive and reactive), phase shifters, mm-wave cables, AC coupling caps, Bias-Ts and their principle of operation, mixers, tuning stubs, couplers, switched attenuators, microwave filters, multipliers, amplifiers, coaxial to waveguide converters, waveguide components including horn antennas, and directional couplers. The video also demonstrates Cascade GSG probes and GGB custom composite RF probes. The documents for this video can be downloaded from here.

    In the video you say I can download the documents from your website. I have been through the website and can not find them, how is it I go about it?

    it is very helpful to me as the beginner,the way you explain the background along with paper work is excellent.I also request you sir please put some more videos on Digital Communication and Microwave communication.I know it requires lots of hard work and time…
    Any way i really appreciate your hard work..

    I bet you could build, or explain how the ‘great seal bug’ works, a spying bug built by the Russians using just simple RF components… it took a while to figure out what that thing was because it had no batteries or active elements, it was powered by a microwave beam sent from a van nearby

    I find your videos amazing, very informative, in depth and a broad spectrum. I specifically enjoy RF and microwave topics. The best part by far is when you have schematics and circuits and you go through it while explaining what is going on…

    Please keep up the good work

    I have noticed that some components are made by thick metal sheet but the cap is much thiner. Is the main body thicker for structural integrity and essential for screws to lock firmly? Or is it essential for the behavior of the component?
