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.
Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, debuts an entirely new family of high isolation PIN diode switches consisting of three low insertion loss, high isolation and high speed modules, covering a frequency range of 1 to 12 GHz.
API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, introduces a new line of standard switched filter bankswith customer-specified frequency bands from 2 to 7 channels. With lead times as fast as four weeks, the configurable solution significantly reduces development cycle time, resulting in cost savings and faster time to market.
Prototype device testing shows that GE’s RF MEMS switch can help enable increased data transfer speeds, enhanced signal quality, longer battery life, and the advanced RF designs required of LTE-Advanced devices.
API Technologies Corp., a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, is now offering a switched multiplexer that includes an integrated low noise amplifier (LNA).
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced the PE42820 and PE42821 single-pole double throw (SPDT) switches for high-power wireless applications. The new switches provide an unprecedented combination of high-power handling and excellent linearity while offering an integrated approach that reduces board area, power consumption and design-in complexity compared to traditional discrete solutions.
