Metal 3D printing introduced a different, new way to fabricate parts. After hundreds of years of metal fabrication limited to cutting and forming operations, the idea of methodically building up raw material into a desired shape was completely foreign to the manufacturing industry. What sorts of parts could a 3D printer produce? Would it make traditional metalworking obsolete? These questions were initially left unanswered due to early printers being extremely expensive and difficult to operate, but more and more applications for metal additive manufacturing have emerged as the process has become more affordable and broadly adopted.
With all of the hype around 3D printing, it can be easy to get lost in fascinating, intricate metal parts made with additive manufacturing. These parts, while impressive, are probably dissimilar from many of the parts you currently produce or use. So why invest in metal additive manufacturing?
Abstract—In this communication different approaches are illustrated for the design of microwave ﬁlters, diplexers and manifold-coupled multiplexers,using commercially available simulation tools and solvers. An integral part to these workﬂows is the efﬁcient usage of the coupling matrix for the synthesis of coupled-resonator networks.

Current mobile data technology is being pushed to its limit. The increase in bandwidth-heavy apps for streaming, the need for high-speed internet in territories where infrastructure is limited and the development of smart and autonomous vehicles are all increasing demand for high-speed and reliable data. Additional industry tends such as the rise of cloud computing, the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), remote tele-surgery and precision manufacturing all require a completely new approach for cellular networks. The Fifth Generation New Radio, commonly known as 5G NR, promises download speeds of gigabits per second, with much lower latency, higher reliability and support for far more connected devices in a given area.
As an engineer in the mobility manufacturing space, you and your company are facing one of the most radical transformations in the transportation industry since mass production. Modern manufacturers are rewriting the rules of vehicle operation as they shift from manual, mechanical platforms to autonomous, electric ones.
