Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced the company will present its expanding portfolio of industry-leading radio frequency (RF) components for smartphones, tablets and other data-centric mobile devices at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC 2013).
Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced that its Santa Clara, California-based subsidiary, Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., received an order for $1.1 million for the company's 500 Watt, continuous wave ("CW"), high-power amplifiers for high throughput satellite ("HTS") services operating in the Ka-Band frequency.
Anaren Inc. announced it has introduced a new low-cost, low-profile subminiature 3dB, 90° hybrid coupler (part no. C1015J5003AHF) offering excellent performance characteristics in an easy-to-use surface mount package.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces its attendance and participation at the 2013 International IC China Conference & Exhibition (IIC-China). IIC-China is the country’s annual systems design event, now in its 18th year of bringing together engineers and technology vendors.
Following the completion of a £700,000 funding round to expand its overseas sales and device characterization capabilities, Mesuro has announced the enhanced services and capabilities it is now able to offer its customers
Centellax Inc. is pleased to announce the release of its 2 to 50 GHz RF power amplifiers for military communication and instrumentation systems. The amplifier is available with either 30 dB gain or 18 dB gain. Both are instrument grade amplifiers providing exceptional gain flatness per octave over greater than 5 octaves of frequency coverage.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has released two new dual matched low noise amplifiers that are ideally suited for balanced high performance RF design configurations. These integrated LNAs are highly linear and offer very low noise figures, high output and include automatic shut-down capability for use in Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency-Domain Duplex (FDD) applications.
Custom MMIC added three new GaAs MMIC power amplifiers covering 5 to 11 GHz to their growing standard product library. The CMD169P4 (5 to 7 GHz), CMD170P4 (7.5 to 9 GHz) and CMD171P4 (9.5 to 11 GHz) each have an output 1 dB compression point of greater than +28 dBm, with gain levels from 20 to 30 dB.
Skyworks introduces a highly efficient, broadband, 13 dB gain, GaAs HBT drive amplifier in a small 2 x 2 millimeter quad flat, no lead package. The SKY67130-396LF draws less than 23 mA at 3.3 V, while achieving +39 dBm OIP3, providing the market with a very compelling, high linearity solution. On-die active bias design ensures consistent performance and unconditional stability.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new GaAs hybrid amplifiers from ANADIGICS. The ACA2786 and ACA2788 each consist of two pairs of parallel amplifiers that are optimized for exceptionally low distortion and noise figure with input and output transient voltage protection.
