Analog Devices Inc. and Dell EMC unveiled a proof of concept (POC) for an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that tracks the health and location of first responders. The POC IoT solution is designed to improve the safety and effectiveness of first responders when involved in an emergency situation, especially those in harsh environments. According to the National Fire Protection Association, more than 60,000 fire fighter injuries in North America alone are reported annually, of which 25 percent are as a result of overexertion or strain.
Richardson Electronics Ltd. announces its participation at the 2016 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS2016). IMS2016, organized by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Technique Society (MTT-S), is the premier conference for attendees to learn about the latest information in the RF and microwave industry.
GLOBALFOUNDRIES announced new advanced radio-frequency (RF) silicon solutions, further expanding the portfolio of Silicon Germanium (SiGe) power amplifier (PA) technologies designed to enable performance-optimized cellular and Wi-Fi solutions in increasingly sophisticated mobile devices and hardware.
Qorvo® Inc., a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, announced seven new products to support growth in small cell base stations - four new power amplifiers and three new duplexers.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate its latest RF circuit, system and 3-D electromagnetic design and electro-thermal simulation software solutions at the Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium (CSICS 2015), Sheraton New Orleans, Booth 601, New Orleans, Oct. 11-14. Keysight EEsof EDA is a silver-level sponsor of the event.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced it has purchased Electroservices Enterprises Ltd, a U.K. company specializing in test equipment service and solutions. Based in Telford, Electroservices provides a broad range of electrical, mechanical and physical calibration, repair and asset management services to a large number of defense, telecom and industrial customers.
Based on its recent analysis of the vector network analyzer (VNA) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT) with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership. CMT’s VNAs stand out for their high performance in a smaller form factor at much lower prices than existing mid-range network analyzers. While leading mid-range VNAs are too big, heavy, or expensive to be portable, CMT’s VNAs can be easily transported and deployed in remote locations.
The GSMA has announced that it has established the ‘Mobile IoT Initiative’, a new project backed by 26 of the world’s leading mobile operators, OEMs, chipset, module and infrastructure companies, designed to address the use of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) solutions in licensed spectrum.
According to ABI Research the increasing adoption of IoT within industrial settings will result in a substantial growth of the number of connected industrial devices, in particular industrial control devices like PLCs. The research firm estimates that over the period from 2014 to 2020, the number of connected industrial controllers will triple; growing at an average rate of 20 percent.
