Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3330, a complete regulating energy harvesting solution that delivers up to 50mA of continuous output current to extend battery life when harvestable energy is available. The LTC3330 requires no supply current from the battery when providing regulated power to the load from harvested energy and only 750nA operating when powered from the battery under no-load conditions.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics announced the introduction of a new, down-leaded version of its Interpoint MFP Series Point of Load (POL) converters. This new version, available in both flanged and non-flanged packages, is a single output 16 watt dc-dc converter providing output voltages from 0.64 to 3.5 V from a source voltage of 3 to 6 V with up to 90 percent efficiency.
Nujira Ltd. has unveiled its newest Coolteq.L ET power supply modulator chip for LTE handsets. Nujira's NCT-L1300 delivers the best ET modulator performance on the market across all key metrics: system efficiency, noise, bandwidth, linearity and RF output power.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, released its new gallium nitride (GaN) integrated power doubler with superior performance for fast-growing CATV infrastructure.
Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new low noise amplifier, the CMD185P3, to its expanding line of standard amplifier products.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3639, a 150V input-capable synchronous buck converter that delivers up to 100mA of continuous output current. It operates from an input voltage range of 4.5V to 150V, eliminating the need for an external transient suspension device. The LTC3639 utilizes internal synchronous rectification and a programmable peak current-mode design to optimize efficiency over a broad range of output currents.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added four new amplifiers in die form to its product family: the CMD164, 165, and 173 distributed amplifiers, and the CMD166 driver amplifier.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC6957, a DC to 300 MHz dual output buffer/driver/logic translator, ideal for converting sine waves into low phase noise logic level signals. Prior solutions were unable to perform this conversion without introducing a significant amount of jitter.
Vaunix Technology Corp. announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6995, a simple, accurate low frequency clock uniquely configurable for long duration power-on reset and watchdog timer applications. The LTC6995 is the latest part in the TimerBlox® family of versatile silicon timing devices, which combines an accurate programmable oscillator with precision circuitry and logic.
