Resonant Inc. (RESN), a designer of filters for radio frequency, or RF, front-ends that specializes in delivering designs for difficult bands and complex requirements, announced it signed its first licensing agreement with an existing customer. This license agreement follows the development engagement that was outlined in the memorandum of understanding signed with this customer in February 2016.
NI AWR Design Environment™ will be showcased in a slate of activities at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016, taking place in San Francisco May 22-27. A number of NI AWR software demonstrations on load-pull and radar systems, as well as antenna design and third-party integration flows will be on display in Booth #1529. Also being showcased is AntSyn™, a new, cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) antenna synthesis and optimization solution that enables designers to input their antenna engineering requirements and produce antenna designs as outputs.
TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, announced its new CII FC-325 Series relay. Designed for harsh inductive, motor and lamp load applications within the aerospace, defense and marine markets, these hermetically sealed devices are excellent for extreme environments.
Antenova Ltd., manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M, has expanded its design and development facility in Taipei’s technology quarter Nei Hu District, Taiwan. This is in direct response to the increasing demand from customers for antennas for M2M and IoT applications.
NI announces that NI AWR Design Environment™ V12 will be highlighted at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2016, being held in Beijing, China April 19-21. In addition to demonstrations in NI Booth #315, the software will be featured in two 40-minute workshops.
Coupling Wave Solutions S.A. (CWS), a leader in solutions for interference analysis in complex chip designs incorporating RF and analog blocks, announced the availability of a new productivity tool called SiPEX. SiPEX models the silicon substrate on insulators much faster than any other tools in its class and allows radio frequency (RF) silicon-on-insulator (SOI) designers to increase the number of design iterations—including spice simulation—up to 10 times in the same time frame.
The students at Technion—Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel have successfully designed a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) using NI AWR Design Environment™. The design challenge was to build an efficient, easy-to-use SAR simulator that would connect to MATLAB for signal processing and that could handle many targets on the surface and then use MATLAB to calculate the object shapes.
Modelithics Inc., the industry leader in simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter wave devices, is pleased to report that the Electrical Engineering department at Chalmers University has adopted the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library and the Modelithics® Qorvo GaN Library for use in multiple electronics design courses.
