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.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solution launches its new Ku-Band Iso-Divider product line designed for use in satellite applications. This unit combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators to provide a high isolation power divider solution, making the external isolators redundant, for satellite receiver applications, without introducing complex switchbased solutions. Integration of the two functions into a single package provides enhanced product reliability due to fewer external components, interconnects and transitions.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, unveils new RF circulators and isolators, ideal for use in mobile infrastructure and distributed antenna systems (DAS). These new ferrite circulators and isolators cover many of the common communications bands including UHF, AMS, Tetra, Cellular, PCS, UMTS and LTE frequencies.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a leading provider of electronic components, introduces an ultra-thin near field communications (NFC) ferrite sheet antenna. The antenna is 28 percent thinner than the previous version and still meets the EMVCo specification of 40 mm. It enables NFC connectivity to mobile devices for payment sharing, credential storage and exchange, accessing and controlling data, and wirelessly connecting to tags.
RFMW Ltd. and RF Circulator Isolator Inc. (RFCI) announced a worldwide distribution agreement effective April 3, 2013. RFCI acquired the Circulator and Isolator product line from RFMD upon RFMD’s exit of the business. RFMW Ltd. is a specialized distributor providing customers and suppliers with focused distribution of RF and microwave components as well as specialized component-engineering support.
AEM Inc. announces the immediate availability of its DSCC-approved line of ferrite chip beads designed for ultra-high-reliability applications. The HRB Series is the first and only line of ferrite beads manufactured with qualified materials and tested to compliance with DSCC drawing 03024. The DSCC drawing 03024 specifications prescribe the stringent physical, electrical and operational specifications for high-reliability ferrite chip shielding beads.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a provider of electronic components, introduces a near field communications (NFC) antenna that is 40 percent thinner than similar NFC ferrite sheet antennas, while still complying with the EMVCo specification. The new ferrite sheet antenna enables mobile devices to read data from a distance of up to 40mm to enable them to communicate with other wireless devices for payments, access and control, credential storage and exchange, and content consumption.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a pulse generator with improved accuracy. The FT 5531, an upgraded version of the FT 5530, supports classic and modern testing standards.
