RF Micro Devices Inc. announced it has shipped over one billion cellular power amplifiers (PA) to handset manufacturers headquartered in the Greater China area. This significant industry milestone demonstrates RFMD's ongoing commitment to providing China-based customers with operational scale, technological innovation and an industry-leading cost structure.
The OpenET Alliance, the industry association that promotes energy efficient wireless transmission through Envelope Tracking (ET), has announced its first wave of members, and the release of an updated interface specification for cellular terminals.
MILMEGA Ltd has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for developing amplifiers, based on a novel design methodology, using gallium nitride-based transistors, for use in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) test equipment.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a new generation of amplifiers that has the ability to measure data that is currently buried by noise.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. announced that it has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to lead a $12.3 million development program focused on ultra-fast gallium nitride (GaN) switch technology for the Microscale Power Conversion (MPC) program. TriQuint’s revolutionary new GaN modulator has the potential to enable highly-efficient RF transmitters substantially smaller than current solutions.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a pair of new InGaP HBT amplifiers from Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. optimized for wireless infrastructure applications.
Visit Renaissance Electronics Corporation/HXI at the IMS MTT-S 2012 tradeshow in Montreal, Canada, from June 19 - 21, Booth #500.
Tower mounted amplifiers have now become a common addition to most macro base station systems. They increase overall system performance and are now easily mounted and monitored. Tower mounted amplifiers can provide significant BTS performance improvement for a moderate investment. Lance Wilson, research director, mobile networks, notes, “The use of tower mounted amplifiers in wireless infrastructure base station systems represents one of the most cost effective ways of improving overall system performance.”
GigOptix, Inc., a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high speed information streaming, announced that it will showcase its portfolio of wideband and E-band solutions at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2012) in Montreal, Canada on June 17-22, 2012.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is offering two new devices from its growing MMIC design library. The CMD157 (die) and CMD157P3 (packaged) are GaAs MMIC low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) for applications from 6 to 18 GHz.
