Creating an RF circuit used for conveying information such as data, video, and voice across long distances, is typically a long, complex multi-stage process when using conventional manufacturing methods. Consequently, achieving optimum performance is an iterative process: create a design, produce the RF circuit, test its performance, improve the design, and repeat the process until an optimum design is reached. In practice, optimizing performance in this manner can be expensive and lead times are long.
