Baluns significantly reduce the PCB footprints, guarantees to filter, and prevents any manufacturing variability.
Beyond merely applying Belnap's innovative coinage to Balun Canan, I shall deepen and clarify the notion of dialectical indigenism by invoking Martha Nussbaum's novel interpretation of compassion, which emphasizes the ethical dimension of emotions.
The substrate and the balun PCB were fabricated using the LPKF PCB rapid prototyping machine.
Another is in the use of the term balun, which is described as "devices which function as converters to allow input and output of audio and video signals across CAT 5/6 cable." While it is true that video and audio baluns will take an analog signal and allow you to use the twisted pairs of the structured cable to transmit signal, the author didn't make it clear that baluns will not help with digital video signals.
The radio interface consists of a system-on-chip (SoC), a discrete filter balun circuit, and an antenna.

With quarter-wave coaxial balun or integrated microstrip balun [9], many types of dipole antennas with dual polarization have been widely investigated and developed in modern BTS (base transceiver station) communication.
As two key components, both balun and filter play important roles in the design of radio frequency (RF) front-end modules.
