John Martinez, Manufacturing Test Supervisor at Benchmark Lark Technology, authored an article for Microwaves & RF explaining how demystifying the relationship between RF system design and test can go a long way towards successful product development. Innovations that increasingly depend on radio frequencies above 5 GHz and up through millimeter wave (mmWave) are shaping the world around us. With advances in technologies such as 5G moving commercial telecom above 5 GHz and up through 28 GHz, 39 GHz, and beyond, frequencies once limited to defense applications are making their way into dozens of new applications. Engineers and operations teams must overcome challenges inherent to working with such frequencies.
