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.
Vaunix , a manufacturer of USB controlled and powered test equipment, has announced the addition of two new models to its family of LDA series digital attenuators. This product family now offers attenuators with up to 120 dB of programmable attenuation through 6,000 MHz.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), announces the release of a new, easy-to-use Attenuator Calculator to its suite of free online tools. The company also offers Cascade Analysis, Thermal Analysis, and Image Rejection calculators.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new high frequency, high power, 7-bit digital step attenuator (DSA) from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine).
Wainwright Instruments introduces UHF/microwave band reject filters that can be tuned by computer with intuitively usable software or directly by simple LAN Telnet protocol. The passband up to 2.5 or 5.0 GHz resp. makes these filters especially suitable for measuring harmonics in laboratory applications and automated test stations in production lines.
Richardson RFPD Inc. introduces a new 6-bit digital step attenuator from United Monolithic Semiconductors S.A.S. (UMS). The CHT4016-QEG operates from 4 to 14 GHz and provides an attenuation range of 31.5 dB in 0.5 dB steps.
Vaunix Technology Corp., a manufacturer of Lab Brick USB powered test equipment, has added an attenuation profile feature to the LDA series attenuators. The attenuation profile is user programmable with the capability to simulate various real-world fading conditions.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced its release of a broadband, microwave voltage-controlled attenuator, the RFSA2113.
KCB Solutions, an ITAR and AS9100 accredited microwave design and manufacturing center, is pleased to announce a new line of fully-screened Hi-Rel switches, attenuators, and power amplifiers. These GaAs devices meet the screening and qualification requirements of MIL-PRF-38534 and MIL-PRF-38535 and are available in a choice of leaded packages or newly qualified KCB hermetic QFNs.
