Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. announced it has received a second patent notice of allowance (NOA) on invisibility cloaks. Upon issuance the new patent will secure rights on methods to make cloaks, fractal resonator (metamaterial) systems and cloaks of different shapes, among other claims. The new patent will further expand the firm’s pioneering and proprietary position in the emerging and fascinating world of making things disappear.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,558,556, “Planar-axial thermistor for bolometry.” This patent describes a novel way to construct very small planar thermistors on a substrate with very low heat transfer. The thermistors are more thermally isolated from the environment than are commercially-produced thermistors. Both the small size and thermal isolation make them useful for measuring RF power at microwave frequencies up to 70 GHz.
ParkerVision Inc., a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced that its patent portfolio once again ranked among the Top 25 companies in The Patent Board's Telecom and Communications Industry scorecard, published by The Wall Street Journal on March 17, 2014.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,610,069, “Coaxial to Dual Co-Planar Waveguide Launcher for Microwave Bolometry,” This patent describes a new way to construct bolometers—a type of microwave power sensor that uses thermistors—that makes them more accurate and easier to assembly.
OEwaves Inc., a leader in innovative microwave photonic products and solutions, announced that it has been ranked among the top 20 in the world on the 2013 Semiconductor Manufacturing Patent Power Ranking by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Laser Direct Structuring (LDS), a process patented by LPKF, is increasingly used in the manufacturing of complex antennas for mobile phones or tablet PCs. As the popularity of this technology increases, so has the number of infringements on this patent, which grants the laser technology specialist LPKF exclusive rights to the LDS process.
Auriga Microwave, an innovator in the design of high-powered RF and microwave devices, announces that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent for technology that will make the control circuit design much simpler for high-power RF switches used in many communication systems.
Isola USA Corp. (Isola USA) and Taiwan Union Technology Corp. (TUC) jointly announced that the parties have settled the patent infringement dispute pending in the United States International Trade Commission (USITC).
