RF Components Directory
Regarding RF design, the purpose of a waveguide is to direct and concentrate electromatic waves. Most waveguides are simply hollow tube structures which allow the waves to zigzag back and forth through the space. Without the use of a waveguide, electromatic waves would radiate in all directions losing power. There exists many different kind of waveguides of various shapes and sizes in the industry. Depending on your application, the waveguide width should match the order of magnitude of the wave. Waveguides are commonly found in microwave ovens, radar and printed circuit boards among many other applications. Below you will find links to different kinds of waveguides and the manufacturers and suppliers who provide them.
