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.
ABI Research’s GNSS IC vendor matrix concluded that, overall, Qualcomm is the leading GPS IC vendor, followed by Broadcom in second place, and CSR in third. The vendor matrix compares companies on 15 criteria across the broader categories of GNSS Innovation and Implementation. Qualcomm’s domination of cellular GPS IC shipments courtesy of its embedded platform strategy, coupled with its strong IZat and Gimbal platforms means it is well placed to remain at the top in 2013/14.
Exalt Communications, the leading innovator of next-generation wireless backhaul solutions, unveiled ExpandAir®, the company’s new point-to-multipoint (PMP) platform. The first system available in the platform is a sub-6 GHz non-line-of-sight offering based on Exalt’s exclusive eMIMO® technology, which brings performance, reliability, and security to a new level for value-priced point-to-multipoint microwave backhaul, accelerates deployment time, and reduces infrastructure costs.
CommScope has stripped the complexity out of integrating a distributed antenna system (DAS) into a macro wireless network by upgrading its ION® platform into a simple to use, plug-and-play solution. The new ION-U features integrated guidance and intelligence, enabling wireless network operators to design, plan, deploy and optimize a DAS more quickly and efficiently and at a lower total cost of ownership.
Mobile device design is increasingly reliant on integrated platforms, which are chipsets based on combinations of application processor, baseband processor, and wireless connectivity technologies. In 2012, 19 percent of handsets shipped were based on an integrated platform; set to more than double to 46 percent in 2018.
Anritsu Corp. announces it is the first test equipment manufacturer to exceed 10,000 validated protocol conformance test cases across all Work Items and frequency bands for LTE and LTE Inter-RAT. The milestone, achieved at the recent GCF CAG#33 meeting in Farnborough, UK, was accomplished on the ME7834 Mobile Device Test Platform.
