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.
Silicon Labs introduced a new family of multi-channel digital isolators featuring a high-voltage isolation barrier designed to withstand 10 kV surge hits. The new Si86xxxT digital isolator family provides robust protection against secondary lightning strikes and increases system reliability in a wide range of demanding industrial applications.
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduced a new high-voltage thin film resistor divider network that offers a compact, higher-precision alternative to functionally equivalent products built on thick film technology.
In addition to various new options for its oscilloscopes, Rohde & Schwarz has continued to expand its range of probes as well: Available for the first time on the market, there is now a broadband, ground-referenced model with a range up to 6 GHz. A differential high-voltage probe is also available.
