Freescale Semiconductor, a global leader in radio frequency (RF) power transistors, announced the availability of 11 new commercial RF power LDMOS products that can meet the requirements of U.S. defense electronics applications. This is the first set of products released as part of the company’s strategic defense initiatives for its RF power business, announced in June 2013.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced that multiple upcoming 4G reference designs and 4G smartphones will feature RFMD's envelope tracking (ET) power amplifiers (PAs) and power management integrated circuits (PMICs).
Texas Instruments (TI), and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), the world's specialist in mobile broadband, announced their collaboration on NSN's next generation of indoor small cell base stations. Based on NSN's Flexi Zone suite of products, the new indoor small cell base stations are expected to support a record 400 active indoor users, compared to 32 users supported today, in a power over Ethernet envelope.
KCB Signal Solutions announces a new, unique envelope tracking product line aimed at the emerging medium power RF transmitter market. The product line will be aimed at RF transmitters that must deal with complex waveforms, such as LTE, while transmitting between two to eight watts of average RF power.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announced that it will showcase its industry-leading portfolio of new GaN power products and high-power limiters for next-generation radar applications at the World ATM Congress in Madrid, Spain, March 4-6, 2014
Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions and an IDT company, now offers the low power FTP Series, a surface mount OCXO featuring a compact footprint of only 14.3 x 9.3 x 6.7 mm and power consumption of only 0.6 W maximum.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets announced that its front-end modules, low noise amplifiers, switches and power detectors are being utilized across the world’s foremost gaming platforms such as the Sony PlayStation®, Nintendo Wii™ and Microsoft Xbox. Skyworks has been delivering RF solutions across nearly all gaming platforms for several generations.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, releases all new lines of medium and high power RF loads. These new RF loads (also referred to as RF terminations and dummy loads) are commonly used in military/aerospace, defense and test and measurement applications in order to protect radios and amplifiers under test from excess power in the system.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8710, its first synchronous SEPIC, inverting, boost and flyback multi-topology DC/DC controller. This synchronous device replaces the output diode with a high efficiency P-channel MOSFET, increasing efficiency, maximum output current (up to 10A) and eliminating the heat sink typically required in medium to high power applications, making the LT8710 highly versatile for a wide range of power supply designs.
