Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced the introduction of the new 8800 Radio Test Set; a high performance, economical radio test system for Analog AM and FM; and Digital P25, DMR, dPMR, NXDN™, and ARIB T98 technologies.
Texas Instruments introduced the industry’s highest-performance 14 GHz fractional-N PLLatinum® phased-locked loop (PLL) with advanced frequency modulation. The LMX2492 offers the industry’s best noise performance, 6 dB better than the nearest competitor, for improved radio frequency (RF) sensitivity and radar range and accuracy. The device also supports a 200 MHz phase frequency detector, a 5 V charge pump supply and a wide operating frequency range of 500 MHz to 14 GHz. The LMX2492 is offered in industrial and automotive grade (class 1) for military and automotive radar, microwave backhaul, communications, and test and measurement applications.

The global point to point (PTP) radio market declined by 13.6% in 2013, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Digital PTP Radio Market Analysis and Forecast, 2014-2018 10th Edition.”
National Instruments announced an integrated software defined radio solution for rapidly prototyping high-performance, multichannel wireless communication systems. The NI USRP RIO platform is built on the NI LabVIEW RIO architecture and combines a high-performance 2 x 2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) RF transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving signals from 50 MHz to 6 GHz with an open LabVIEW programmable FPGA architecture.
Harris Corp. has successfully created a high-frequency (HF) tactical radio network that linked U.S. military bases in four states and provided clearer communications and greater capabilities than traditional HF solutions.
Harris Corp., an international communications and information technology company, has successfully completed initial interoperability testing of its widely fielded Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband manpack radio hosting the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform. MUOS is the next-generation U.S. Department of Defense military satellite communications system for delivering cellular-based service through tactical radios.
Freescale Semiconductor, a global leader in radio frequency (RF) power transistors, announced the availability of 11 new commercial RF power LDMOS products that can meet the requirements of U.S. defense electronics applications. This is the first set of products released as part of the company’s strategic defense initiatives for its RF power business, announced in June 2013.
