The interface of the recently released Molex Inc. zCD™ active optical cable (AOC) interconnect solution has been selected by the industry leading CDFP MSA as the interface for the consortium’s 400 Gbps hot pluggable module. The zCD AOC assembly will be highlighted at Molex booth 3863, OFC 2014, March 11-13, San Francisco, CA.
Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, announced the availability of a new series of 100GbE-LR4 transmit optical subassembly (TOSA) and receive optical subassembly (ROSA) devices, the AFCP-T4X25EL and AFCP-R4X25PL, respectively. This new series of devices is designed for use in the new CFP4 optical transceiver form factor enabling carrier grade transmission over fiber links of up to 10 km.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a next-generation user interface for its Infiniium real-time oscilloscopes. It is the first oscilloscope user interface to take advantage of new display technologies and significantly enhance the user experience by offering faster documentation, personalized viewing and improved usability.
Northrop Grumman Corp. has finished detailed performance testing on its Advanced Pulse Generator (APG), which represents the next technology evolution for the company's Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) product that is used to test and validate the performance of electronic warfare equipment.
Kaelus, a Smiths Microwave business, announced the launch of the next generation in a line of high performance DAS Interface solutions with the release of the Small Cell RF DAS Point of Interface (POI) Tray. This is a small form factor, low power tray designed specifically for Small Cell DAS deployments with multiple bands and technologies. These low PIM certified, power management trays, allow adjustment of the RF power levels between multiple small cell base stations and the DAS network.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2874, an IO-Link master IC, combining a power and communications interface to four remote IO-Link devices (slaves). A rugged interface and rich feature set make the LTC2874 ideal for larger systems implementing IO-Link (IEC61131-9) in harsh, industrial environments. Managing four slaves per master IC, the LTC2874 reduces board space, design complexity and costs while increasing reliability.
EADS North America Test and Services, a division of EADS North America Inc., introduces the Racal Instruments™1256L, LXI Switching System. The company’s switching systems are used to automate functional testing of a wide range of devices, resulting in improved performance for test time, repeatability, and signal fidelity.
Nujira Ltd., the world’s leader in Envelope Tracking (ET) technology, has welcomed the publication of the MIPI Alliance Analog Reference Interface for Envelope Tracking (eTrak) specification. Nujira has worked closely with the MIPI Alliance since the formation of the ACI Working Group in November 2011, contributing to the development of a standardised specification that provides interoperability between multiple 3G/4G modem chipsets and Envelope Tracking Power Supplies (ETPS).
