Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces it supplies the UltraCMOS main-antenna tuning switch for Pantech’s Vega Secret Note LTE-A phablet, featuring a fingerprint scanner that secures the lock screen and access to user-specified data. Peregrine’s PE613010, which is also being used for Pantech’s Vega LTE-A smartphone, provides RF performance enhancements that help the phablet increase battery life, boost data throughput and improve connection quality for fewer dropped calls – even when roaming.
Anritsu Co. introduces software enhancements to its MD8430A Signaling Tester that make it the first LTE network simulator to support Time Division Duplex LTE (TD-LTE) Carrier Aggregation (CA) test functionality. The MD8430A is the industry’s leading platform for device testing from development to certification and carrier acceptance.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announced it is expanding its family of MultiSwitch™ STeP8 dual single-pole, seven throw (SP7T/SP7T) UltraCMOS® antenna switches optimized to solve the significant carrier aggregation challenges of 4G mobile wireless applications.
Anritsu Corp. announces its first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation (CA) test case submissions to RAN 5, demonstrating a strength in protocol conformance that extends across current 2G, 3G, and leading-edge LTE technology. This follows its recent world first in validating RF conformance test cases for CA in PTCRB. RAN 5 verification paves the way for protocol test validations and the inclusion of this technology in GCF and PTCRB certification.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced the launch of the TM500 Multi-UE LTE-A Test Mobile, which supports carrier aggregation across multiple mobile terminals or UE. Carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-A, allows multiple carriers comprised of either contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum to be added together, allowing wider channel bandwidths -- and higher data rates -- to be achieved.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has further demonstrated its protocol test case leadership with the first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation (CA) test case verification submissions to RAN5. These submissions were based on initial verifications originally submitted by Anite to RAN5 in April of 2013. This key achievement is a stepping stone toward validation, leading to the inclusion of these test cases in both GCF and PTCRB device certification requirements.
Mobile Experts released a 180-page market study, which provides detailed analysis of the market for RF components in handsets, tablets, PCs, and M2M modems.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, introduced groundbreaking RF switching technology that is enabling early adopters to implement carrier aggregation solutions. Carrier aggregation allows mobile service providers to combine spectrum and increase data rate throughput by utilizing two or more bands simultaneously instead of the single band method used currently, thereby giving consumers an enriched data experience regardless of location.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp. announced that the 7100 Digital Radio Test Set has added support for carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A).
Azimuth meets demands for LTE-advanced testing with new multi-link topologies, advanced real world test and automation
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced new capabilities for the ACE™channel emulation portfolio that directly address LTE-Advanced test requirements.
