Electromagnetic radiation consists of oscillating electric
charges that are moving with the speed of light in vacuum. Science divide the
electromagnetic radiation depending on how much energy it contains, based on
the wave´s wavelength. Light is the electromagnetic radiation that we can see.
Radio waves and microwaves are other forms of electromagnetic radiation.
the industry of electronics, radio frequencies and microwaves are sometime
confused. It happens that mobile phone frequencies such as 1.8 GHz are called
microwaves, while frequencies in wireless computer networks of 2.4 GHz can be
called a radio frequency.
radio wave signals and microwave signals often include amplification,
filtering, generating of frequencies and modulation of frequencies. In
electronical hardware made for this kind of signal processing, we find
specialized components that cannot be find in circuits with low frequencies,
such as blenders, dampers, hybrid couplers, filters and detectors. Some
examples of applications are amplifiers in the telecom industry, radars, EMC
tests, lab environments and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Comptronic offers
both circuit board-mounted components, components matched with coaxial
connectors, stand-alone amplifiers and systems for rack mounting. We also
deliver antennas and customized cabling that enables transferring of signals at
