JULY 2020 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 63 • I have seen a quick response to email requests and action items. I get an almost immediate response vs. the usual week to no response (had to send reminders). • Some are worried that they will get accustomed to working from home and dread the "drive back to work." • They enjoy creating their own work schedule to help with children's school- work (those who have them), as now most evenings are free because all of the work is done during the day. John Perry Director, Printed Board Standards and Technology A majority of my committee members are in aerospace and defense, and as such, were granted exemptions that allowed (or perhaps the word is required) them to work in their office/manufacturing plant several days a week, as some of the products they build are designated for national security and defense purposes. For them, the issue was addressing adequate social distancing at work with other employees and using masks.

These new SOLT calibration kits deliver the precision components necessary to perform accurate analyzer calibrations," said Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Line Manager. Fairview's new SOLT calibration kits are specifically designed for the calibration and fine-tuning of sensitive test equipment in production environments, engineering labs and quality testing facilities. These kits are con- structed to provide accurate RF equipment calibration for the life of the product and withstand years of rigorous use. (Source: Fairview Microwave) Fairview Microwave Inc., an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of on-demand RF, microwave and millimeter wave components, has unveiled a new series of short-open-load-through (SOLT) calibration kits designed for use in lab, test and measurement, and RF and Micro- wave production test applications. Fairview's expansion of its VNA calibration kit line con- sists of 12 models including short circuit, open circuit and load kits (SOL), as well as short circuit, open circuit, load and thru kits (SOLT). Interface options include 2.4mm, 2.92mm, 3.5mm, 7/16 DIN, 7mm, N-Type and BNC. Every model in this new line of VNA calibration kits includes the required short circuit, open circuit, loads and thru (model dependent) components required for VNA cali- bration. These RF test and mea- surement kits come packaged in protective wooden boxes. They are suitable for a variety of vector network analyzers from the indus- try's leading providers such as Rohde & Schwarz, Agilent, Copper Mountain and Anritsu.
