- Buyers Guide
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced the company will present its expanding portfolio of industry-leading radio frequency (RF) components for smartphones, tablets and other data-centric mobile devices at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC 2013).
DragonWave Inc., a global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced a product addition to its portfolio with the introduction of the Avenue Link Lite. With a form factor of only 7.5 in square including antenna, the sub-6 GHz point-to-point microwave radio supports both licensed and unlicensed spectrum and is ideally suited for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios where obstructions are found between link endpoints.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona it has expanded its DuNE™ Digitally Tunable Capacitor (DTC) product line with six second-generation devices for antenna tuning in 4G LTE smartphones.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a provider of electronic components, announces that it has developed a tunable, co-located long term evolution (LTE) antenna structure. The developed structure contains two LTE multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antennas in the same end of one device to provide 9 frequency bands of functionality in a volume of just 3.20 cubic centimeters.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, is ramping several antenna tuning products with leading smartphone manufacturers. Skyworks’ devices are meeting the market demand for tunable antennas which dramatically improve performance by increasing data throughput, reducing dropped calls and minimizing the antenna footprint needed for today’s multiband LTE smartphones.
To address the pressing need for increased reliability and lower life cycle cost, airborne satcom rotary joint customers are now ordering Diamond Antenna & Microwave rotary joints with integral Diamond-Roltran Roll-Rings®. Roll-Rings® are the only rotating electrical contact solution that rolls instead of slides like slip rings and therefore does not create wear debris.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a double-ridged horn antenna that has a frequency range of 6 to 18 GHz. The new PMM DR-01 is designed for radiated emissions and immunity applications, featuring an antenna factor of 36 dB/m to 41 dB/m and excellent sensitivity for emissions measurements.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces availability and full design support capabilities for a range of new, high efficiency, fourth generation antennas from Taoglas USA Inc. (Taoglas).
ON Semiconductor has introduced a new family of tunable RF components (TRFC) that address the design challenges faced by engineers developing the latest generation smartphones. The new devices optimally combine tuning range, RF quality factor (Q) and frequency operation, providing a superior solution to existing fixed approaches.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced the Model 350AH1 solid state amplifier. This portable, self-contained, 350 watt/10 Hz to 1 MHz unit provides power, durability and dependability along with the versatility for a wide range of applications.
