Harris Corp. has received a $10 million order from an Eastern European nation to supply high-performance, high-frequency (HF) tactical radios that will create long-range, secure communication networks and enable users to connect seamlessly with coalition partners.
ON Semiconductor has expanded its wireless portfolio to include high performance, low power consumption, sub 1 gigahertz (GHz) RF devices through the acquisition of AXSEM AG. The devices enable wireless connectivity and support advanced functionality in the IoT, automatic meter reading, home automation, sensor networks and satellite communication markets.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced it is collaborating with the University of Bristol on 5G millimeter-wave research. The two organizations are already deeply involved in the 5G ecosystem in Europe and the U.S. and now will be working closely together on multiple 5G millimeter-wave technologies.
Harris Corp. has received a $36 million order from the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to supply Harris Falcon III® AN/PRC-117G multiband networking manpack radios that will enhance and extend voice and data connectivity down to the squad level.
Harris Corp. has received $45 million in delivery orders for advanced satellite communications terminals under the U.S. Army's Modernization of Enterprise Terminals (MET) program. The next-generation military satellite communications terminals will provide the worldwide backbone for high-priority military communications and missile defense systems.
FIME's EMV(R) RF test tool, which incorporates Keysight Technologies' Contactless Test System, is the first to achieve EMVCo qualification to perform Level 1 PCD analogue testing on contactless terminals. The tool confirms that the communication between the terminal and a contactless card, or near field communication (NFC)-enabled smartphone, is in line with EMVCo's EMV specification 2.3 requirements. Contactless terminal and mobile point of sale (mPOS) manufacturers can use the tool to speed up their EMV Level 1 analogue approval process.
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s lowest power wideband radio frequency (RF) synthesizer. Covering up to 1.34 GHz, the LMX2571 integrates an ultra-low-noise PLLatinum™ fractional-N phase-locked loop (PLL) with a multicore voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), enabling low phase noise and spurs at only 39 mA (128 mW). The LMX2571 enhances radio sensitivity and dynamic range for applications such as low-power wireless communication, handheld oscilloscopes and signal analyzers.
