White Paper Overview

Today’s evaluation board-based prototyping for an RF design takes a significant amount of engineering time and resources, and the result still may lack the performance the final system will have once built on a single board. Prototyping RF designs with the X-Microwave modular system can dramatically reduce the time and resources needed to test an RF signal chain by enabling clean, modifiable, near-PCB prototypes through 60 GHz to be built and tested in a single afternoon. This article provides an overview of the X-Microwave platform and its advantages, as well as a step-by-step guide to getting started.
