dB Control, an international defense electronics manufacturer, is introducing a Ka-band traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifier for ground and mobile radar applications. Featuring an outdoor hub-mount configuration, the dB-3709i operates in the 34.5 to 35.5 GHz frequency range and provides 700 Watts minimum peak output power at a duty cycle of up to ten percent.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and ANSYS, Inc., a global leader and innovator of engineering simulation software, announced that they have integrated ANSYS HFSS™ into AWR’s Microwave Office high frequency circuit design software. This integration unites the industry standard for full-wave electromagnetic (EM) field simulation and NI AWR Design Environment™/Microwave Office to quickly and accurately simulate microwave circuits.
We have an exciting agenda of activities that provide insight into the powerful, innovative tools and technologies of our newly released V11 NI AWR Design Environment™, which includes Microwave Office®, Analog Office®, Visual System Simulator™ (VSS), AXIEM®, and Analyst™ for the design of MMICs, RF PCBs, microwave modules, RFICs, communication systems, radar systems, antennas, and more.
AWR Corp. offers a wide range of activities during IMS2014. As a platinum sponsor with its parent company National Instruments, AWR will be demonstrating its newly released V11 NI AWR Design Environment™ in Booth #633 on June 3-5, 2014, presenting numerous MicroApps presentation, hosting a customer appreciation event as well as sponsoring other IMS-related offerings.
In announcing the new Outdoor Weatherproof Housing, AtlanTecRF makes available its full range of loop test translators and other satcom and test equipment for installation directly to antenna mounts and similar structures.
Mercury Systems Inc., a best-of-breed provider of commercially developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced that its Mercury Defense Systems subsidiary has received a $1.7 million order from the U.S. Navy for advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to support both U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force requirements.
Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the first phase of a new systems design enterprise platform to address today’s printed circuit board (PCB) systems challenges of increased complexity, changing team demographics, and systems-aware design requirements. The Mentor Graphics Xpedition™ platform significantly simplifies and accelerates the development of the industry’s most challenging designs. By combining an intuitive design environment with designer-driven automation, the Xpedition platform addresses the changing responsibilities of designers, including global team-based organizations, so that users can perform at expert levels for optimum productivity. The result is shortened product development cycles, minimized design re-spins, and improved product quality. The first phase of the launch announces new Xpedition PCB layout technology.
National Instruments released NI Trend Watch 2014, which summarizes the latest technology trends to help engineers meet evolving demands and integrate the ever-increasing power of technology into their work. The inaugural report examines a range of topics — from cyber-physical systems to the “SDR-ification” of RF instruments.
Precision Devices Inc., a member of the Avrio Technology Group LLC, has announced the extended temperature version of the LV7 series of clock oscillator products. The LV7 series is ideally suited for the communication systems where low jitter is mandated by chipset suppliers and system level performance demands.
