MACOM announced an IP licensing program for Gallium Nitride (GaN) on silicon technology. MACOM detailed recent progress in two areas critical to realizing its future vision of enabling the mainstream adoption of GaN as a large-scale RF semiconductor technology across the industry.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced it has signed a $9.7 million agreement with the Manufacturing and Industrial Technologies Directorate within the Air Force Research Laboratory(AFRL) to transfer and produce a 0.14 micron Gallium Nitride (GaN) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology. The technology will be scaled to 6-inch diameter wafers using RFMD's industry-leading 6-inch GaN-on-Silicon Carbide (SiC) manufacturing line.
Prototype device testing shows that GE’s RF MEMS switch can help enable increased data transfer speeds, enhanced signal quality, longer battery life, and the advanced RF designs required of LTE-Advanced devices.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced that its Gallium Nitride (GaN) amplifier family for the new DOCSIS 3.1 CATV networking standard has won the CableFAX Tech Award for Green Technology. CableFAX's Green Technology Award recognizes technology that helps cable companies and program distributors cut energy consumption in equipment installed at the headend and/or in equipment distributed to residential and business customers.
ParkerVision Inc., a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced that its patent portfolio once again ranked among the Top 25 companies in The Patent Board's Telecom and Communications Industry scorecard, published by The Wall Street Journal on March 17, 2014.
Silvus Technologies, pioneer in the development of cutting-edge wireless commutations systems for the US military, will be introducing its high performance MN-MIMO technology to the broadcast market at the National Association of Broadcasters’ Show in Las Vegas, April 7-10.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. announced that its Spatium™ technology achieves unprecedented levels of Ka-Band solid state power, bandwidth and efficiency, which provides greater broadband capacity and opens up new satellite possibilities.
