Nujira Ltd. has released the results of an operator-focused study carried out by RTT and Caru Ventures on behalf of Nujira to understand the network performance challenges faced by operators. Crucially the study found that LTE network performance is currently limited by handset transmit performance - reducing network coverage by as much as 32 percent, requiring operators to install 45 percent more base station sites.
Anritsu Co. announces that its VectorStar Broadband ME7838A vector network analyzer (VNA) system was used by Modelithics Inc. to validate the performance of its novel nonlinear diode models for W-Band Single Anode and W-Band ZBD flip chip schottky diodes from Virginia Diodes Inc. (VDI).
Azimuth announced its new Wi-Fi Performance Test Suite, the first component in the Azimuth Data Offload and Connectivity Solution Family. It provides an automated test plan for Wi-Fi performance and connectivity testing that exceeds the basics of Wi-Fi Alliance® certification testing.
Empower is pleased to be releasing the first models of its “Size Matters” high power PA product family. Packaged in a 5U, air cooled chassis and delivering over 1 kW of output power in the frequency ranges of 20 to 500 MHz, 500 to 1000 MHz, and 20 to 1000 MHz, these first units offer unrivaled size/power advantages. Specs are guaranteed across full bandwidth and over temperature.
Kaelus announces the availability of LTE 800 test capability in both its Portable and Bench Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Test Equipment.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF products manufacturer and foundry services provider, has introduced its first four high-performance Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) GPS diplexer modules that are nearly three times smaller than ceramic diplexers. The new family can employ any TriQuint CSP5 packaged RF filter, with the first four devices focused on the low loss/high attenuation GPS needs of commercial and defense systems including communications, ECCM and navigation.
Texas Instruments Inc. introduced a pair of devices supporting the JEDEC JESD204B serial interface standard for data converters.
Ethertronics, a leading technology company enabling innovative antenna and RF system solutions to deliver the best connected experience, announced that the company achieved a more than 50 percent increase in revenue from 2011 to 2012, reinforcing its continued growth in the global market. The company’s solutions are now integrated in more than 1,000 product designs. In addition to its continued momentum in providing products to OEMs worldwide, Ethertronics achieved major milestones in 2012 related to the diversification of its business.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a dual-channel differential amplifier for driving high speed 12- to 18-bit A/D converters. Featuring a 3dB bandwidth of 4.5 GHz, the ADL5566 differential amplifier is optimized for wideband, high IF (intermediate frequency), low distortion, and noise performance out to 500 MHz.
In an effort to address customer inputs and in the spirit of our commitment to continuous improvement, the Renaissance/HXI Extremely Low Latency GigaLink LightSpeed radio link has been improved for ease of deployment and increased range performance.
