NXP Semiconductors N.V. introduced the industry’s largest portfolio of broadband 28 V LDMOS two-stage, dual-path Doherty-optimized Integrated Circuits (ICs) for small cell base stations. As part of NXP’s leading RF power transistor portfolio, the new LDMOS ICs are designed to provide RF power, efficiency, and gain in all current and proposed frequency bands, from 700 to 3800 MHz, with RF output power of 2.5 to 12 W.
Metrigraphics, a leading process development and manufacturing resource for miniature passive circuits and electroformed structures, announced their recent move to Lowell, Mass. This move provides additional space to accommodate company growth and allow for greater advances in the manufacturing of their customers' products. The greatest benefits lie in the addition of the class 10,000 clean room and increased space dedicated to electroforming.
Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), announced the addition of a new driver amplifier to its growing line of products, the CMD232 2 to 9 GHz driver amplifier.
Linear Technology Corp. opened the company’s third semiconductor test facility in Singapore. The additional space for staff, equipment and materials will allow the company to more than double its production capacity of advanced analog circuits and µModule® (micromodule) products. This will strengthen Linear Technology’s ability to meet the growing demand for high performance analog integrated circuits worldwide.

Agile Microwave Technology Inc., has passed the rigorous standards for quality management systems to earn certification to ISO standard, ISO 9001:2008 for the design and manufacture of RF and microwave circuits, hybrids, modules, MCMs, multi-function modules and MMIC assemblies.
Anokiwave Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated core IC solutions for mmW and AESA markets, announced the latest addition to its leadership team with the appointment of Andrew Crofts to the position of vice president of Applications. This appointment supports Anokiwave’s plans to extend product development by supporting new customers and applications for its portfolio of mmW products scheduled to release this fall.
Metrigraphics addresses market requirements for tactical, critical communications with several circuit manufacturing and process solutions. Attendees at IMS2015 in Phoenix, Ariz. saw many of these offerings firsthand at the company's booth # 3312.
As today's battlefield gets more and more tactical, critical communications have never been more important. And as radios and subsystems are being pushed to become smaller and even more ruggedized, it’s causing a chain reaction right down to the circuit level. Where once rigid and thick film technologies were primary go-to solutions, today's military communication applications are requiring antennas to be even more flexible, circuits to fit into tighter spaces, and signal integrity at higher frequencies to be perfect. And to add to that, today soldiers’ vital signs are as closely monitored as a radar screen — it’s easy to understand the push towards advanced circuitry is tasking traditional thinking.
Cascade Microtech Inc. announced Velox 2.0, the latest version of their probe station control software. Combining the ease of Nucleus™ with the power of ProberBench™, Velox 2.0 delivers new levels of test and measurement efficiency to accelerate time to job completion.
