Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Modelithics Inc. welcomed Syfer to the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program. Syfer and Modelithics have collaborated to develop a Microwave Global Model™ for Syfer’s 0603 case-size High Q Ultra-Low ESR capacitor family. These simulation models are substrate scalable, part-value scalable, pad scalable, and orientation selectable (vertical or horizontal surface-mount).
Modelithics Inc. has teamed with Mini-Circuits to develop high-accuracy simulation models of Mini-Circuits’ 3.2 x 1.6 mm case-size surface-mount LFCN Low-pass filters and HFCN High-pass filters. The substrate-scalable models are validated up to 13 GHz, depending on the frequency band specifications of each filter.
Delcross Technologies announced the first commercial release of Signa, a software toolkit for advanced radar signature analysis. Signa delivers efficient EM simulation of complex radar cross sections (RCS) for targets that are tens to thousands of wavelengths in size.
Teledyne LeCroy announces the expansion of the popular WaveStation series of function/arbitrary waveform generators to include three new models with bandwidth up to 160 MHz and 500 MS/s sample rate — over three times more bandwidth and four times more sample rate than the existing models. The new WaveStation 3000 models come with a larger 4.3” color display, intuitive front panel, two output channels, and PC waveform editing software.
Modelithics Inc. has collaborated with TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. to develop high-accuracy simulation models for five popular Gen II GaN Transistors from TriQuint, including the TGF2023-2-01, TGF2023-2-02, TGF2023-2-05, TGF2023-2-10 and TGF2023-2-20.
AVX Corp. announces the availability of new Modelithics models for its 0402 tight tolerance, high current, and high Q multilayer organic (MLO) inductor series. The latest additions to AVX’s Modelithics Component Model Library are part-value sensitive, substrate scalable, and fully integrated with a range of software applications.
Narda Microwave-East, an L-3 Communications company, announced the expansion of its Phase Shifter product line. Responding to customer requests, the expanded line features new models in five distinct categories.
Expanding on its full suite of RF Inductor design tools, Coilcraft has added an updated ADS Component Library to its selection of online 2D/3D, S-Parameter and SPICE Models. Coilcraft’s Component Library includes models of its RF and Spring inductors and integrates with Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS), helping engineers accurately simulate the performance of Coilcraft inductors in their circuit designs.
