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).
The low-profile right-angle connector (ZQA) from W. L. Gore & Associates Inc. features a non-bifurcated swept contact design for use with low-loss microwave coaxial cable qualified for 32 GHz spaceflight applications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 1 MSPS, ultralow power 12-bit successive approximation register analog-to-digital converter (SAR ADC) from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI).
RFMW Ltd. announces application and sales support for the Telemakus LLC TEA13000-12 USB Controlled Digital Attenuator. The TEA13000-12 is used in bench top test or ATE applications and spans a frequency range of 100MHz to 13GHz.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a wireless vibration sensing system that allows industrial systems operators to remotely monitor production equipment health, improve system performance, and reduce maintenance costs. The new networked system includes the ADIS16229 iSensor(R) wireless vibration sensor node, which combines dual-axis digital MEMs (micro-electro mechanical systems) acceleration sensing with advanced frequency-domain and time-domain signal processing.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), released four new DuNE™ Digitally Tunable Capacitors (DTCs), creating the industry’s broadest integrated RF tuning IC portfolio. The PE64906, PE64907, PE64908, and PE64909 DTCs feature a wide capacitance range of 0.6 – 7.7 pF and support power handling up to 34 dBm into 50 Ohms (30 Vpk RF).
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4290/LTC4271 isolated 8-port power source equipment (PSE) controller chipset designed for use in IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) Type 1- and Type 2-compliant Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) systems. The LTC4290/4271 provides 8 independent PSE channels for simpler lower component count designs, reduced board space and ultimately reduced total solution costs.
