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.
Following the success of the Diamond RF Resistives® product range, EMC Technology now offers CVD Diamond Heat Spreaders designed to meet today’s demanding requirements for higher power and longer life spans by keeping junction temperatures low and stable. CVD Diamond provides up to 8x the thermal conductivity of traditional materials like AlN and BeO.
Rogers Corp. will highlight several of its high quality printed circuit board (PCB) materialsat the upcoming 2013 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS). Rogers’ Advanced Circuit Materials representatives will be on hand at exhibition booth #1459. In addition, John Coonrod, Rogers Market Development Engineer, will be presenting “Determining Circuit Material Dielectric Constant from Phase Measurements.” as part of the technical program.
Oven Industries is now offering a high powered temperature controller mounted on a heat sink that creates a seamless transition between heating and cooling devices, as it serves as the commander of thermoelectric modules. With a bi-directional or unidirectional H-bridge configuration, the controller has many benefits.
IQD’s latest high performance oscillator, the IQRB-1, offers a stability around a 1000 times more accurate than a typical oven controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO). This means it can be used as a free run frequency source in applications such as LTE (Long Term Evolution) systems that require exceptional timing accuracy. It can also be used for UTMS as well as extended holdover for CDMA and WiMax.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced it has launched an Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100-certified SPDT RF switch. The HaRP™ technology-enhanced PE42359 switch is certified to AEC-Q100 Grade 2, meaning it is qualified for operation in the extended temperature range of -40 to +105 degrees Celsius.
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.
Lake Shore announces a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corp., that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station, significantly improve reliability of sample measurement.
Linear Technology announces the LS8 reference family, a series of hermetic precision voltage references packaged in a 5 x 5 mm surface mount, low stress ceramic package. These precision voltage references offer outstanding long term stability and consistent predictable behavior, over time and operating conditions. For instrumentation that demands the best possible performance over years or decades of operation, the LS8 package offers an alternative to large metal can or ceramic DIP packages.
Nano Materials International Corp. (NMIC) announced that it has shipped its 10,000th aluminum diamond metal matrix composite (MMC) heat spreader for use in gallium nitride (GaN) RF power transistors and MMICs.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6090, a precision operational amplifier that operates on a supply voltage up to 140 V (or ±70 V). Its combination of rail-to-rail output, 3 pA (typical) input bias current, 1.6 mV maximum input offset voltage and 3.5 µVP-P low frequency noise delivers the precision required for high performance ATE, piezo driver, and DAC buffer applications.
