NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced an early access version of the WLAN Measurement Suite with support for the IEEE 802.11ax (draft 0.1) high-efficiency wireless draft standard. The WLAN Measurement Suite, combined with NI’s RF vector signal transceiver (VST), empowers engineers to measure the performance of their 802.11ax designs confidently in the presence of significant new changes to the 802.11 physical layer specification.
The new SKY13575-639LF is ideal for dual-band switching in Wi-Fi access points, WLAN 802.11ac and 3G/4G LTE systems and is also suitable for access points, customer-premises equipment (CPE), LTE systems, dual-band WLAN and test and measurement equipment.
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. unveils a single control, SOI, single-pole-double-throw switch. The compact, 0.01 – 6.0 GHz SKY13453-385LF is intended for mode switching in pre-power amplifier cellular and dual-band WLAN transmit/receive applications. Using advanced switching technologies, it is a reflective short switch that offers high linearity, maintains low insertion loss and achieves high isolation for both switching paths.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets announced that its front-end modules, low noise amplifiers, switches and power detectors are being utilized across the world’s foremost gaming platforms such as the Sony PlayStation®, Nintendo Wii™ and Microsoft Xbox. Skyworks has been delivering RF solutions across nearly all gaming platforms for several generations.
Worldwide consumer Wi-Fi customer premises equipment (CPE) shipments surpassed 43.3 million at the end of 1Q-2013; a 16.8 percent increase from 4Q-2012. “802.11n device shipments still dominate the market, accounting for more than two thirds of total device shipments; however, 802.11ac access point adoption is starting to gain traction,” says Jake Saunders, VP and practice director of forecasting.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., an RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, is enabling next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a superior wireless user experience with the introduction of three new high-performance WLAN front-end modules and two advanced Wi-Fi/4G coexistence filters.
Anritsu Co. introduces three software packages supporting LTE-Advanced and five packages supporting IEEE802.11ac that extend the analysis capability of its MS269xA/MS2830A signal analyzers and MG3710A/MG3700A vector signal generators. With the software installed in the instruments, developers and manufacturers of LTE-Advanced UEs and components, as well as wireless LAN (WLAN) modules and devices have accurate solutions to verify performance, speed time-to-market, and lower cost-of-test.
