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.
Rockwell Collins has received a $2 million contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to develop and demonstrate a secure software defined radio (SDR) Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver capability.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the next generation of optical modulation analysis software for its family of optical modulation analyzers. The new software makes it easy for photonic engineers to set up tests on their optical modulation analyzers, increasing test efficiency by cutting the number of steps in half. By automating the execution of tests, the software also minimizes testing errors.
A new white paper from AWR, “RF/Microwave EDA Software Design Flow Considerations for PA MMIC Design,” examines a gallium arsenide (GaAs) pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT) power amplifier (PA) design approach from a systems perspective.
Telefónica has been selected by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Control as the preferred communications service provider for two out of three lots in the UK’s smart meter tender, subject to contracts being agreed.
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.
