Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has launched a new power amplifier which maintains excellent performance over its operating frequency range. The new amplifier, HMC6981LS6, is ideal for high linearity point-to-point and point-to-multi-point radios, SATCOM, military and space applications.
AWR Corp. gifted its software to the winners of the High Efficiency Power Amplifier (HEPA) and Software Defined Radio (SDR) Student Design Contests offered at the IMS 2013. The gifts are part of the AWR University Program, which encourages students to become involved in the dynamic profession of microwave and RF engineering and to apply their knowledge to practical designs using the highly efficient AWR design methodology.
AWR Corp. announces that its customer, Marki Microwave has leveraged its high-frequency design software platform to develop a new design and manufacturing flow for successful mixer design. The revolutionary new mixer design flow combines AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software and Marki’s patent-pending Microlithic™ mixer manufacturing process, resulting in a 14x reduction in the size of Marki’s mixers and a 5x reduction in design time with the same industry-leading quality and performance as the former handcrafted devices.
A new application note from AWR highlights the use of AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software to develop a Q- to E-Band doubler and a K- to E-Band quadrupler circuit (including a medium E-Band power amplifier) for millimeter-wave wireless systems. The design effort resulted in an increase in gain as well as output power, two critical criteria for E-Band systems.
ALCIOM, a consulting and design company specializing in innovative mixed-signal projects, used AWR’s Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system design software and Microwave Office® circuit design software to develop a wideband RF downconverter subsystem for a custom measurement instrument with strict instrumentation-grade specifications.
Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, is pleased to announce the release of the Hittite’s 2013 Product Selection Guide summarizing over 1100 products including 22 new products. New for this publication are GaN Power Amplifiers, an I/Q Downconverter and Sub-Harmonic MMIC Mixers. The Selection Guide is organized by RF & Microwave, Analog & Mixed Signal, Clocks & Timing and LO Frequency Generation IC sections along with Modules and Instrumentation.
Pulse Electronics, a provider of cutting edge electronic components for the wireless and wired communications, power management, military/aerospace, and automotive industries, has developed a unique process that uses AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software for the design and optimization of its maximum efficiency LTE small cell base stations.
AWR has released Version 10.07, the latest update to its V10 suite of high-frequency design software tools, inclusive of Microwave Office®/Analog Office® and Visual System Simulator™ (VSS), as well AXIEM® 3D planar EM software and Analyst™ 3D finite element method (FEM) EM software.
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 $3.6M in follow-on orders from a leading defense prime contractor for integrated microwave assemblies (IMAs) for an airborne electronic warfare (EW) application. The orders are expected to be shipped by the end of Mercury’s fiscal 2014 third quarter.
