IQD has extended the performance of their IQOV-90 series high stability low phase noise OCXOs to encompass the full standard industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C. High operating temperature ranges are significantly more technically challenging in OCXOs than for other frequency products. By increasing the internal crystals turnover point to a safe margin above 85°C and reducing the thermal loss of the circuit, our design team have been able to increase the maximum external temperature range of the part to 85°C.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced a new test system based on its PXI 3000 Series modular instrumentation, which has been designed to offer measurements over a 160 MHz bandwidth at operating frequencies up to 6 GHz. The new system is particularly suited for making R&D, design verification, and production measurements on wireless LAN (WLAN) devices based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard, extending Aeroflex's market-leading 802.11ac measurement capability in PXI to cover the optional 160 MHz bandwidth.
The new range of single phase-locked loop frequency synthesisers from AtlanTecRF exhibit excellent performance in terms of electrical specification and versatility. Their miniature size ensures they are highly suitable for many applications in communications, radar and test instrumentation.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., a leading ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, introduces its new line of high frequency RF switches. This new line of RF switches is perfect for applications requiring a broad spectrum of frequencies up to 40 GHz.
IQD’s new IQOV-70 series OCXO, which is launching at Embedded World 2013, is designed for use in next generation multimode base station platforms. Operating at a frequency of 10 MHz, the new model achieves a frequency stability of ±3 ppb (parts per billion) over the operating temperature range of -10° to +70°C.
IQD’s new IQOV-150 series OCXO satisfies the growing demand for low phase noise reference clocks for ADC and DAC, especially for very fast measurements and high speed data transfer.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced a wideband frequency synthesizer with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) that delivers the industry’s lowest phase noise. Its combination of ultra-low noise phase-locked loop (PLL) and industry’s highest phase detector frequency outperforms the competition in both phase noise and spurs.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, today announces RFP™, an innovative new frequency planning wizard within Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) that enables engineers to effortlessly and efficiently determine spurious free bandwidths when designing complex radio communications systems.
Pronghorn Solutions, a low cost high performance instrument company announces the PHS – 5000 family of fast tuning USB controlled microwave frequency synthesizers.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
