Cascade Microtech Inc., a leader at enabling precision measurements of integrated circuits at the wafer level, and imec, a world-leading nanoelectronics research center, announced breakthroughs in probing stacked integrated circuits (3D-SICs), fueling an important growth engine for the semiconductor market.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that Plextek RF Integration, a UK-based company that designs and develops RFICs, MMICs and microwave/millimeter-wave modules, has selected Agilent software to simulate its new high-frequency circuit and MMIC designs.
Analog Devices Inc. announced the availability of a low-cost hardware-software solution focusing on circuit testing designed for the engineering education market. This offering combines MATLAB software and Analog Devices’ Digilent Analog Discovery Design kits, enabling students to experiment quickly and easily with advanced technologies and build, test and analyze real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime – anywhere – for the price of a textbook.
Cobham plc has established a new strategic business unit (SBU) – Cobham SATCOM – that combines all of the Group’s satellite communications businesses into one organisation, following the successful acquisition and integration of Danish satcom company Thrane & Thrane earlier this year. Thrane & Thrane will trade as Cobham SATCOM from November 2012, and will form the core of the new SBU.
MBDA Germany opened a new simulation and integration centre for air defence systems at its Schrobenhausen site. The centre offers ~4,000 m² of usable space, enabling the integration of large end items such as radar systems, launchers and command posts.
The collaboration between CST and Delcross will bring together EMIT's RF system models and predictive engine for quantifying the impact of interference on system performance with the powerful computational electromagnetic solutions of CST STUDIO SUITE. This integration provides a high-fidelity solution for the prediction of cosite interference in complex, RF-dense environments.
