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.
A postgraduate student from the University of Bristol is the joint recipient of five separate awards in recognition of their world record achievement in 5G wireless spectrum efficiency using Massive MIMO. The announcement was made at the 22nd annual NIWeek conference in Austin, Texas, at the National Instruments (NI) Engineering Impact Awards ceremony.
The Center of Excellence at the Universität der Bundeswehr München (Federal Armed Forces University Munich, Germany) intends to provide academic staff at the university who have retired from active service in their faculty, such as Excellent Emeriti, but also staff from other universities who want to continue to do research.
As demand for vector network analyzers (VNAs) increases, Copper Mountain Technologies has hired two new employees to support the company’s growth. Masud Al Aziz and Rick Hollowell will both play strong roles when it comes to helping customers improve their radio frequency (RF) and microwave testing processes via the company’s affordable, lab-grade equipment.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, released the Wireless Test System (WTS), a solution that dramatically lowers the cost of high-volume wireless manufacturing test. Although faced with the rising complexity of wireless test, companies can confidently reduce test costs and multiply throughput on the production floor with a system optimized for measurement speed and parallel test.
DiTom Microwave, an AS9100 Rev C. certified U.S. manufacturing company located in Fresno, Calif. with over 28 years of experience engineering, designing, and manufacturing high quality ferrite isolators and circulators for the space and defense markets, announced the appointment of IMC. Ltd. as their new exclusive representative for Japan.
Resonant Inc., a late-stage development company creating innovative filter designs for radio frequency front-ends (RFFEs) for the mobile device industry, announced it has added Thomas R. Joseph, Ph.D., 65, to its board of Directors, bringing the number of independent board members to four and the total number of board members to six.
Amphenol Connex has merged with Amphenol RF, headquartered in Danbury, Conn. The combined product portfolio will be marketed and sold under the name Amphenol RF. The Moorpark, Calif. facility will continue to operate as the company’s main North American distribution center and Amphenol RF’s western regional sales office providing support to local customers.
The Wireless Telecommunications Symposium Committee named Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport, the David Lee/Ernst Weber Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, as the outstanding educator of the year and honored him with the Award for Outstanding Contributions to Wireless Communications.
ANSYS, a global leader in engineering simulation software, will host a special information session at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS2015) in room 102 BC of the Phoenix convention center on Thursday, May 21. The one hour session entitled, “Leveraging Protected IP with Encrypted 3D HFSS Components for Next Generation Wireless Design & Integration” will highlight a new patent pending capability for sharing high-fidelity electrical models used in high-frequency circuit and system simulations.
