Wi-Fi protocols have changed significantly over the last two to three years and almost every smartphone shipped this year will offer some form of Wi-Fi capabilities. However, a new Wi-Fi protocol will begin to dominate mobile devices soon. New market intelligence from ABI Research projects the IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi protocol will begin to conquer the existing protocols (802.11b, g, and n) in the next two to three years.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced the AD9250 dual-channel, 14-bit, 250 MSPS, A/D converter featuring the JEDEC JESD204B serial output data interface standard. The AD9250 A/D converter is the first-to-market with full JESD204B Subclass 1 deterministic latency at 250 MSPS. This functionality accommodates the precise synchronization of multiple data-conversion channels through a serial interface.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, announced that it is enabling Samsung's next-generation GALAXY Note II with RFMD's PowerSmart® Power Platforms — the industry's first and only converged multimode, multiband (MMMB) power amplifiers.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new family of gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon carbide (SiC), high electron mobility transistor (HEMT), radio frequency (RF) transistors from Microsemi Corp. (Microsemi).
Analog Devices Inc. named four strategic advocates to the Analog Devices University Program. Strategic Advocates serve as distinguished advisors who provide insight and guidance to the company’s ongoing mission to promote and support hands-on, active learning at engineering universities throughout the world.
Meeting the demand for direct digital synthesis (DDS) technology that meets the needs of wireless applications requiring fast hopping and/or sweeping, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, announced that it has more than tripled the clock speed of previously available DDS integrated circuits (ICs).
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. is announcing initial sample availability of two packaged, surface-mount low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) that deliver the lowest noise figure of any integrated, packaged solutions for base station and similar applications.
Analog Devices Inc. has appointed Somshubhro (Som) Pal Choudhury as managing director for operations in India. Pal Choudhury will manage Analog Devices’ presence in the country specifically defining and executing strategies to expand business by further developing and strengthening ADI’s relationships with strategic customers, the government and local universities.
