- Buyers Guide
DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the availability of higher modulation modes of up to 2048 QAM on its Horizon packet microwave products. This higher modulation allows the radios to transport up to 37 percent more data through existing microwave channels, which significantly improves spectral efficiency and, correspondingly, lowers operators' cost per bit.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new power amplifier for S-Band radar applications.
RF Micro Devices Inc. announced it has begun production shipments of its ultra-high efficiency power amplifiers to Samsung in support of the highly anticipated next-generation Galaxy S3 4G LTE smartphone.
LPKF Laser & Electronics (www.lpkfusa.com), a printed circuit board technology and microelectronics company, has announced that they will be offering a free webinar on “Maximizing R&D Efficiency with In-house PCB Prototyping: Insights for RF and Microwave Executives,” presented by president of LPKF North America, Stephan Schmidt, and market development representative, Shane Stafford.
Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., a technology leader in high power amplifier products for satellite communications (SATCOM), introduced a new compact, lightweight and highly efficient solid-state Ku-Band block up converter (BUC) designed for transportable satellite communications uplinks.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF products manufacturer and foundry services provider, is introducing four new rugged GaN HEMT RF power transistors that offer superior gain and efficiency. TriQuint’s GaN transistors can cut the size of amplifier line-ups in half while improving efficiency and gain.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF products manufacturer and foundry services provider, is rolling out new processes to more quickly expand its catalog of broad-market products for commercial and defense customers. As a result, TriQuint will spotlight 12 new products at European Microwave Week in Amsterdam, October 29-31.
Building on its leadership position in the digital broadcast market, NXP Semiconductors N.V. announced that it has developed the industry’s first ultra wideband solution for Doherty architectures. This patent-pending solution will uniquely enable manufacturers of digital transmitters to enjoy the high-efficiency gains that Doherty power amplifiers confer with greatly expanded bandwidth.
A line of modular, highly reliable, solid-state systems for upgrading virtually all military and commercial radar transmitters with vacuum electron devices (VEDs) is available from Diversified Technologies Inc. of Bedford, MA.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a pair of 35W Gallium Nitride (GaN) radio frequency power transistors from TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. (TriQuint).
