Space Grade Materials Low Outgassing MAST Technologies’ silicone based RF absorbers are well suited for space applications. The industry standard test for measuring outgassing of RF absorbers and similar materials is ASTM E595. Developed by NASA to screen low outgassing materials for use in space, the test determines the volatile content of material samples placed [...]
Die Cutting vs. Kiss Cutting Does the difficulty of getting your fingernail behind an adhesive liner sound all too familiar to you? Well then you might be a perfect candidate to evaluate a kiss cut solution! What’s the difference? Die cutting is a process of using a punch press and steel ruled die to cut [...]
The Automotive Industry’s efforts to achieve a goal of zero automotive-related fatalities, along with meeting consumer demand and government legislation, are driving the adoption of advanced automotive safety systems. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), radar and camera systems are expected to become government-mandated in the future. One of the advancing technologies is 77 GHz radar [...]
Are you building an RF test box, bench top screening chamber, or ICT tester? If so, you are likely looking for a variety of electrically performing materials to either line the inside of your test box for resonance reduction, or to create isolation from the outside environment. MAST Technologies has a suite of solutions which you should consider.
Reducing crosstalk between antennas, reducing back lobes or side lobes of the antenna pattern, or creating Rx/Tx isolation on a tower or on a board level antenna; the discussion that follows shall provide you with some insight into the ways that others are solving the problem using MAST Technologies’ RF absorbing and microwave absorbing materials.
A discussion of the two main product categories of microwave absorbers, magnetic versus dielectric materials. The discussion offers insight into product selection, and the benefits of each type of material.
Happy New Year, and welcome to 2012 from MAST Technologies!
