IEEE Microwave Magazine – January 2020
The January issue of the Microwave Magazine is out! In this issue we have two big things to celebrate: first, there are three feature articles on interconnects working at over 100 GHz; and second, we have articles from the IMS2019 Student Design Competition winners. The Design Competition articles are always a fun read with a lot of breadth so there is something for everyone in this issue. The Guest Editor’s Desk column will give you a detailed overview of our three feature articles, but just to make you more curious we’ll give you a brief introduction. Each of the features gives you an overview of the difficulties of interconnects above 100 GHz. One of the articles solves the problem with micromachining and the other two describe using dielectric waveguides as a solution. This is a fascinating area which brings together the battle of physics and manufacturing in the Terahertz region.
