Vectawave Technology Ltd. has been designing and manufacturing power amplifiers for over 15 years. Until recently most of their production was distributed through third parties. In 2011/12 Vectawave invested heavily in a purpose built factory equipped with cutting edge design, build and test facilities and are now in a position to offer amplifiers directly to the market under the Vectawave brand.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, and Magus (Pty) Ltd, developers of the leading antenna synthesis product Antenna Magus, announce Antenna Magus Version 4.1, which adds four new antenna types:
Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has launched a new website which includes information related to its growing product library of commercially available amplifiers, mixers, control devices, multipliers, and multi-function MMICs.
Rohde & Schwarz now offers harmonic filter options for its R&S SMB100A microwave signal generator. These filters make it possible to achieve a harmonic suppression of more than –50 dBc over a wide frequency range from 150 MHz to max. 40 GHz. At low frequencies below 3 GHz, it is even possible to achieve an excellent –58 dBc.
Cree Inc. introduces a range of new 50V GaN HEMT devices enabling a significant reduction in the energy needed to power cellular networks. The world’s cellular network is estimated to consume more than 100TWh of electricity per year (approximate value of $12 Billion US Dollars) and 50-80 percent of the networks’ power is consumed by the systems’ power amplifiers and feed infrastructure.
Building on its leadership position in the digital broadcast market, NXP Semiconductors N.V. announced that it has developed the industry’s first ultra wideband solution for Doherty architectures. This patent-pending solution will uniquely enable manufacturers of digital transmitters to enjoy the high-efficiency gains that Doherty power amplifiers confer with greatly expanded bandwidth.
