8 Common RF Engineering Problems That Impact RF Engineers

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Sep 5, 2019 8:22:00 AM

What's the best way to solve a problem? Preventing the problem from occurring in the first place (or knowing exactly how to tackle an inevitable problem whenever it occurs). In this post, we're going to cover 8 of the most common RF engineering problems that impact RF engineers on the regular. Making yourself more aware of these frequent RF engineering problems will allow you to be more prepared with a solution (or even prevent them from happening in the first place). Less problems = better engineering productivity & happier RF engineers!

10 Popular Software Defined Radios (SDRs) of 2019

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Dec 31, 2018 11:19:00 PM

Back in 2016, we wrote one of our most popular posts covering 12 popular Software Defined Radios or SDRs.  While the previous post still holds some extremely valuable information, a lot has changed in 3 years... especially the technology related to SDRs.  So we thought it was time for an update.

5 Great Engineering Laptops (Plus Free CAD Tool Guide)

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Dec 31, 2018 11:17:00 PM

Finding the Best Performing Engineering Laptop


Our engineering team at Bliley is growing, which is great, but it also introduces some new challenges for small business like ours... finding the best performing engineering laptops for our engineers.

We want to give our engineers the best tools available and create an environment where they can be their most innovative and do the best work of their careers.  Of course, a key to this whole equation is the technology they use day-to-day to get those next generations products designed. We recently kicked off a search for the best laptops that are perfect for engineering workloads. As you can probably imagine, the ideal laptop for an engineer needs to have great compute and graphics power.

The battery life needs to last most of the day (because what’s the use of getting an ultra-portable engineering laptop that has to be tethered to a power outlet all day?!?).  The CAD tools an engineer relies on every day require a lot of memory to run smoothly, and most engineers prefer to work with multiple monitors, so expandability is important too!

5 Great Standing Up Desks for Engineers

Posted by Tommy Reed on Dec 31, 2018 11:16:00 PM

Maybe you've heard about the many benefits of using standing up desks and you want to increase in your mood and energy levels. Or maybe you currently use a makeshift (crap) stand-up desk like this and want to make an upgrade to your engineering work-space...

The Innovative History of HRL Laboratories

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Mar 13, 2018 6:30:00 AM

To say that HRL Laboratories has made significant contributions to cutting-edge science and technology would be quite an understatement. Known today by its legal corporate title HRL Laboratories LLC, the storied company traces its roots back to the legendary Howard Hughes. Hughes set the standard for HRL's innovative mission, advising his contemporaries to "Do the impossible. Because almost everyone has told me my ideas are merely fantasy."

7 Incredibly Effective Ways to Prevent Pressure Transducer Problems

Posted by Rob Rutkowski on Feb 19, 2018 8:28:00 AM

Poor manufacturing environments can significantly reduce the performance quality of a pressure transducer. A failing pressure transducer will lead to problems with sensors and will provide inaccurate readings (or none at all).

A faulty pressure transducer not only can cause frustration and wasted time, but can also lead to unnecessary costs.

To prevent pressure transducer problems or failure from happening in the first place, let's take a look at 7 pressure transducer troubleshooting methods to keep your transducers & sensors working great!

COTS Part 2: Dealing with Space Radiation

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Dec 26, 2017 6:30:00 AM

In Part 1 of our series on COTS components for space applications, we discussed why the government is increasingly turning to “commercial off the shelf” parts for spacecraft, satellites and more. COTS parts have already been successfully adopted in many military applications, but when it comes to space, COTS adoption has been much slower.

The Benefits of COTS in Space Applications

Posted by Bliley Technologies on Dec 19, 2017 6:30:00 AM

Space exploration has never been cheap. In the days of the Apollo program, the cost of sending payloads into space was such that only government agencies with billions of dollars to spend could afford it. Over time, those costs have begun to come down, but even with advances in launch technology, funding for such activities ebbs and flows. In the wake of budget cuts for military and aerospace Research and Development, there has been much pressure to develop systems and designs that meet the needs of space projects and reduce costs without sacrificing quality. This is where COTS (Commercial Off-The Shelf) products offer a potential solution.
