Accel-RF Instruments Corp. is the world-leader in supplying equipment for performing measured long-term reliability assessment on compound-semiconductors. To keep up with the shift in GaN from “research novelty” to “market reality”, Accel is expanding its RFBL measurement equipment with the introduction of an 80-Channel RF Bias Burn-In System.
The 2014 Mobile World Congress that was held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona is billed as an industry-defining event; though the pace at which the mobile telecommunications industry continues to evolve makes the accurate definition and prediction of trends and especially their timescale for implementation a difficult task. However, having all of the major players under one extensive roof offers the opportunity to take stock, gauge opinions, talk to innovators at the forefront of technology and hopefully be able to see the wood for the 4Gs (or is that 5Gs now?).
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it is actively working on developing technologies toward potential Fifth Generation (5G) wireless systems, and is a founding member of the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) program, led by the University of Surrey, UK.
Texas Instruments (TI) and PureWave Networks Inc., an innovative provider of advanced, cost-effective wireless base stations, announced their collaboration on a first-of-its-kind single-board, end-to-end (ENET to RF) solution platform for enterprise and pico small cell base stations. The Hercules solutions platform utilizes TI's highly-integrated KeyStone™-based TCI6630K2L System-on-Chip (SoC), combined with TI's analog front end transceiver, the AFE7500, allowing customers to demonstrate 4G cellular functionality and performance right out of the box.
Airbiquity Inc., the global leader in connected vehicle services, and Baidu, the leading Chinese internet services provider, announced a partnership to provide connected car internet services to the Chinese automotive market beginning in first quarter 2014.
Azimuth has announced the evolution of its over-the-air test platform, developed to measure and analyze performance of mobile devices in their native states, under real-world conditions. Intelligent Over-The-Air (iOTA) revolutionizes lab testing by enabling device performance to be tested through the complete radio frequency (RF) chain under highly configurable scenarios, including playback of data from drive routes to emulate actual and familiar network conditions.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the Linduino™ One development tool, an Arduino-compatible platform for developing and distributing firmware libraries and code for Linear Technology’s SPI and I²C-compatible integrated circuits. The Linduino One board interfaces to more than 300 QuikEval™ demonstration cards, supporting a variety of product types including analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs), power monitors, intelligent Hot Swap™ controllers, temperature sensors, LED drivers, and battery management systems.
Nutaq announced that its PicoSDR software defined radio platform has been chosen by French Equipex FIT/CorteXlab for its large scale cognitive radio testbed developed by Inria at INSA-Lyon.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that HTC and Samsung are ramping SkyOne™, a highly customizable, fully optimized front-end solution, in several of their recent smartphone launches. The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.
Indium Corp. will feature its new technology platform using the SACM™ Solder Alloy at Productronica November 12-15 in Münich, Germany.
