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).
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.
