Anritsu Co. announces its market-leading ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System and ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform have received the most test case validations across a single platform type for LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA). This breakthrough further affirms Anritsu’s commitment to provide solutions for certification testing of mobile devices that implement CA, one of the key LTE-Advanced features defined in 3GPP Release 10.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced that the TM500 Test Mobile family now provides full-stack WCDMA handset simulation capability that is scalable from testing and verifying the performance of small cells right up to multi-handset, multi-cell network capacity performance testing.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support of the new mXTEND™ antenna booster from Fractus S.A. (Fractus).
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that HTC and Samsung are ramping SkyOne™, a highly customizable, fully optimized front-end solution, in several of their recent smartphone launches. The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.
LTE network deployments will continue to grow rapidly globally. Time-division duplex (TDD) network is picking up the pace and gaining more market traction. In Asia-Pacific, LTE-TDD networks will cover more than 53% of the population by 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 41.1% between 2012 and 2018, while frequency-division duplex (FDD) networks will reach 49% population coverage by the end of 2018.
X-COM Systems to demonstrate latest broadband signal capture, multi-Cchannel signal generation, and signal analysis and editing software at AOC
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, will be exhibiting its products for broadband signal capture, recording, playback, and multi-channel signal generation at the 50th AOC International Symposium and Convention, October 27 to 30 in the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Washington, DC. The company will also have its Mobile Measurement Vehicle (MMV) on the exhibit floor. The MMV is a customer-tailored mobile measurement suite housed in a van that can be configured to provide all of X-COM’s capabilities including direction finding.
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. announced the development of circuit technology that enables industry-leading electrical efficiency (the ratio between output power and consumed power) for wireless transmission power amplifiers used in radio-frequency wireless devices, such as mobile phone base stations.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a leading provider of electronic components, introduces an ultra-thin near field communications (NFC) ferrite sheet antenna. The antenna is 28 percent thinner than the previous version and still meets the EMVCo specification of 40 mm. It enables NFC connectivity to mobile devices for payment sharing, credential storage and exchange, accessing and controlling data, and wirelessly connecting to tags.
Carrier Wi-Fi started to gain momentum in 2013 driven by increasing data demands and new Wi-Fi advancements. Cable operators are enthusiastically adopting the technology as an entrance into the wireless market. ABI Research forecasts Carrier Wi-Fi access point shipments in 2018 to reach 9.7 million with the Asia-Pacific region accounting for 70 percent of that number.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a leading provider of electronic components, now announces in-house capability to integrate passive surface mount technology (SMT) components on 3D laser direct structuring (LDS) antennas. Incorporating SMT components with the 3D LDS antenna structure saves space on the mobile device's printed circuit board and optimizes the use of available space on the antenna.
