Ericsson and IBM announced a collaboration to jointly research phased-array antenna designs for 5G, allowing networks to provide customers with data speeds orders of magnitude faster than what is available currently.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced two new interposer solutions for testing DDR4 and DDR3 DRAM designs with a logic analyzer. Both interposer solutions provide fast, accurate capture of address, command and data signals for debugging designs and making validation measurements.
SemiGen Inc., an ISO and ITAR registered RF/Microwave assembly, automated PCB manufacturing, and RF Supply Center, offers Limiter Diodes that feature fast turn-on time, low loss, low capacitance and resistance, and easy bonding.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced two new high-performance portable oscilloscope series deploying next-generation oscilloscope technology. The Infiniium S?Series sets a new standard for signal integrity for bandwidths up to 8 GHz, while the InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series sets a new standard for price/performance with bandwidths up to 6 GHz.
Intercept Technology Inc., a leading provider of PCB, RF, Hybrid, and high-speed design software, recently released a version of its Mozaix schematic design software that no longer requires top level sheets and block symbols to build hierarchy in a schematic.
Isola Group S.à r.l., a market leader in copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), announced that it has begun alpha testing of Tachyon, its new ultra-low loss product that is engineered to reduce insertion loss on high-peed digital designs. It is specifically being targeted for high-layer count backplanes for the growing 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) market that has channel data rates in excess of 25 Gbps.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the new M8000 Series BER test solution, a highly integrated and scalable bit error ratio test solution for physical-layer characterization, validation and compliance testing for receivers used in multigigabit digital designs. The new M8000 Series BER test solution provides accurate and reliable results that accelerate insight into the performance margins of high-speed digital devices.
