Waveguide Directional Coupler

- details of RF waveguide directional couplers and bi-directional couplers, what they are, how they work and applications for using a directional coupler.

A waveguide directional coupler is only a directional coupler realised in a format using waveguide technology. A waveguide coupler provides a means of sampling the energy travelling within a waveguide, and as most couplers are directional in nature, sampling energy travelling in one direction, they are called waveguide directional couplers.

Waveguide couplers are available that sample the energy travelling in both directions - these are known as waveguide bi-directional couplers.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
