Analog Devices Inc., the world's data converter market share leader, introduced today an industry first 2.8-GSPS dual 16-bit converter for telecommunications system manufacturers that require microwave frequencies in point-to-point wireless backhaul equipment. The 16-bit AD9136 and 11-bit AD9135 dual D/A converters achieve up to 70 percent higher signal bandwidth than competing devices while enabling designers to support emerging E-band (71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz) frequencies being adopted by wireless carriers to support steadily increasing demand for high-speed mobile voice and data transfers.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc. ("MACOM"), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products today, announced a new up-converter ideally suited for 28 to 34 GHz point-to-point radio applications.
According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the point-to-point microwave transmission equipment market is forecast to reach $4.5 billion by 2018, following two recent years of market contraction in 2012 and 2013.
Sub10 Systems has appointed SideBand Systems Inc. as its first North American distributor and value-added reseller. The company will resell all Sub10 Systems’ point-to-point radio link products in the U.S. market.
