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.
Gowanda Electronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of precision electronic components and inductors for power, radio frequency (RF), and high frequency (HF) applications, is teaming up with its recently acquired sister company, TTE Inc., also a US-based company, to provide a broader range of electronic components to the global design engineering community. TTE Inc. designs and manufactures RF and microwave filters for critical markets including defense and test & measurement.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new 1 to 24 GHz distributed driver amplifier in die form, the CMD197, to its growing product line.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,610,069, “Coaxial to Dual Co-Planar Waveguide Launcher for Microwave Bolometry,” This patent describes a new way to construct bolometers—a type of microwave power sensor that uses thermistors—that makes them more accurate and easier to assembly.
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 it received an $11 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for high performance microwave subsystems for an electronic warfare application. The orders were received in Mercury’s fiscal 2014 second quarter, with deliveries currently expected to span 2015 through 2018.
Fairview Microwave Inc. a preeminent supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, has released a new line of compact hot-switchable variable attenuators. RF attenuators are used to reduce the amplitude of an electronic signature in many common electronic scenarios including lab testing equipment, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and power and signal monitoring systems.
Modelithics Inc. welcomed Syfer to the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program. Syfer and Modelithics have collaborated to develop a Microwave Global Model™ for Syfer’s 0603 case-size High Q Ultra-Low ESR capacitor family. These simulation models are substrate scalable, part-value scalable, pad scalable, and orientation selectable (vertical or horizontal surface-mount).
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced the addition of new 3ft options to its portfolio of CompactLine® EASY microwave antennas that will enable customers to better overcome the challenges of microwave backhaul and ultimately reduce TCO. Engineered to provide high performance in a light, compact, easy-to-deploy package, the new SC3/SCX3 series CompactLine EASY microwave antennas are more than 20 percent lighter than competing products on the market.
According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the point-to-point microwave transmission equipment market is forecast to reach $4.5 billion by 2018, following two recent years of market contraction in 2012 and 2013.
Prism Microwave, a technology leader in RF filtering, relies on AWR 's Microwave Office® circuit design software for its cavity filter tuning and optimization, as well as the design of active RF electronics and planar components on printed circuit boards (PCBs), including low noise amplifiers (LNAs), drivers, power amplifiers (PAs), dividers, hybrids, attenuators, oscillators, and planar/discrete filters.
