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.
NI announced the NI PXIe-4135 source measure unit (SMU) with a measurement sensitivity of 10 fA and voltage output up to 200 V. Engineers can use the NI PXIe-4135 SMU to measure low-current signals and take advantage of the high channel density, fast test throughput and flexibility of NI PXI SMUs for applications such as wafer-level parametric test, materials research and characterization of low-current sensors and ICs.
Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) acquired ASC Signal Corp., which designs and builds advanced satellite communications, radar and high-frequency antennas and controllers. ASC Signal's high-performance antennas are used in commercial and government satellite communications, terrestrial communications, imagery and data transmission, and radar and intelligence applications.
Mercury Systems, Inc., a leading high-tech commercial provider of more affordable secure and sensor processing subsystems powering today’s critical defense and intelligence applications, announced it received a $2.3 million order from a leading defense prime contractor for high-performance digital signal processing modules for use in a signals intelligence (SIGINT) application.
Rohde & Schwarz is introducing a powerful scanning direction finder with diverse application options. The R&S DDF5GTS offers fast, accurate direction finding and uses multichannel DF antennas for sensitivity that meets the highest demands while ensuring immunity to reflections.
When developing radar sensor chipsets, users can now use the new Rohde & Schwarz solution to simulate a realistic scenario in the lab. For example, it is possible to simulate vehicles with different moving profiles or stress tests in different environments. As a result, developers can verify the signal processing algorithms of the sensor at an early stage.
