76 PCB007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2022 conducted by the Supplier Quality Services department of Lockheed RMS based in Moore- stown, NJ. Adventures in Engineering: 5G Expansion and Radar Altimeters E e expansion of cellular broadband in the 3.7–3.98 GHz spectrum band has crossed into the working frequency range of Radar/ Radio Altimeters (RAs). Commercial RAs are intended to operate in the frequency band of 4.2 to 4.4 GHz. However, Radar altimeter receivers may be sensitive to frequencies out- side this range, and this is the basis for the FAA's current reluctance to wireless 5G wire- less station deployment near airports. Electronics Industry Praises Congress for Providing $7.5 Million for Lead-Free Electronics R&D E e U.S. Senate last night approved an FY 2022 spending package that contains $7.5 million for further research and development on lead-free electronics in defense and high-performance applications, sending the measure to President Biden for his expected signature.

Doug Pauls, Collins Aerospace, Receives Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award E Recent recipient of the Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award, Doug Pauls worked nine years for the Navy, eight years as technical director of Contamination Studies Labs, and 19 years at Rockwell Collins (now Collins Aerospace), in the Advanced Operations Engi- neering group, where he is a principal materi- als and process engineer. Doug was awarded the Rockwell Collins Arthur A. Collins Engi- neer of the Year Award in 2004. Designers Notebook: Design for Test, Part 2 E Current generations for PCB designs have increased in complexity. e product devel- oper and assembly service provider, whether in-house or outsourced, must consider manu- facturing efficiency, throughput, and process yield. Design to accommodate product testing should ensure that the end product will per- form reliably without compromise. BAE Systems Completes Acquisition of Bohemia Interactive Simulations E BAE Systems announced that it has completed the acquisition of Bohemia Interactive Simula- tions (BISim) for $200 million, subject to cus- tomary closing adjustments.
