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.
Richardson Electronics Ltd. announced the launch of a new business group, Power & Microwave Technologies (“PMT”). The PMT group encompasses Richardson Electronics’ existing Electron Device Group (“EDG”) and adds new technologies and engineered solutions for the power conversion and RF and microwave markets.
DARPA released "Breakthrough Technologies for National Security", a biennial report summarizing the agency’s historical mission, current and evolving focus areas and recent transitions of DARPA-developed technologies to the military services and other sectors.
University of Illinois' Swanlund Chair Professor John Rogers will deliver the plenary session address on Monday, May 18 at the IEEE MTT-S 2015 International Microwave Symposium (IMS), kicking off a week of more than 160 technical sessions that indicate industry growth at the intersection of RF and microwave technologies with health.
eSurface® Technologies, the developer of the eSurface proprietary process for printed circuit boards, announced the appointment of Judy Warner to the eSurface Technologies Advisory Board, effective immediately.
Raytheon Co. demonstrated their successful prototyping of Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) technologies into the US Patriot Air and Missile Defense System radar. In addition to enabling future 360 sensor coverage, these technologies will significantly increase the defended area and decrease the time to detect, discriminate and engage threats. The introduction of GaN-based AESA technologies will also further improve reliability and lower the life cycle costs for the Patriot radar, beyond what has already been achieved with other recent Patriot radar improvements.
