Radar Concept for Vital-Sign Detection
A multiple-frequency continuous-wave (MFCW) agile radar system capable of coping with various physiological conditions of a human subject is presented. Even with wooden or brick barriers in the path, the vital-sign detection was successful.

Printable Evanescent Mode Filters
This work presents a new topology of evanescent mode filter that allows for its efficient additive manufacturing. Chamfered ridges are introduced to eliminate the need for support structures when printed vertically. A prototype filter is fabricated using metal additive manufacturing.
MMIC VVA Covers 10 to 45 GHz
Mini-Circuits’ new PVA-453-34+ MMIC voltage variable attenuator provides up to 51 dB attenuation range for applications spanning 10 to 45 GHz. It has a control voltage range of -4V to 0V and achieves excellent IIP3 ranging from +26 to +43 dBm. Fabricated with GaAs HBT technology, the device comes in a 2.5 x 3.5mm QFN or in bare die format.

Dual-Band Filtering Switches Using Multimode Dielectric Resonators
Miniaturized dual-band filtering switches are proposed in this article using multimode dielectric resonators. The planar circuit boards are utilized not only to construct the hybrid EM boundary for quad-mode dielectric resonator, but also to offer the switchable feeding structures with the p-i-n diodes.

Voltage-Controlled Polarization at 0.1 THz Based on Coupled Oscillation
Voltage-controlled polarization at 0.1 THz is demonstrated using a pair of phase-tuned Gunn diode oscillators coupled through a WR10 magic-tee hybrid coupler. By finely tuning the free-running oscillation frequency with bias voltage, the phase difference between the two coupled oscillators can also be controlled.

Ultrawideband Branch Waveguide Coupler With Low Amplitude Imbalance
An ultra-wideband branch waveguide coupler (BWC) with low amplitude imbalance is demonstrated. This design is based on a structure of branch waveguide obtained by symmetrically increasing the waveguide width. In addition, this structure can produce a transmission zero (TZ), and a concept to improve the fractional BW of the BWC.
