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.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3797, a triple output DC/DC controller designed to drive three independent channels of LEDs. Its fixed frequency, current-mode architecture delivers constant, accurately regulated LED current over a wide range of supply and output voltages.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces that it is taking advance orders and offering full design support capabilities for a new family of 48 V gallium nitride-on-silicon (GaN-on-Si) RF power transistors from Nitronex.
Barry Industries, an ISO9001:2008 certified, ITAR registered manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators and high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) packaging introduces its line of hermetically sealable HTCC quad-flat-no-lead (QFN) packages with air cavity for high frequency applications. These QFN packages are available in six sizes from 3 to 8 mm with standard JEDEC MO-220 footprints.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is introducing a free, easy-to-use, Thermal Analysis tool to their array of web-based calculators. The company offers Attenuator, Image Rejection, Cascade Analysis, and now Thermal calculators.
L-3 TRL Technology (L-3 TRL) announced that it is working with Avanti Communications to provide secure Ka-Band satellite services to government and military agencies that use L-3 TRL’s CATAPAN® encryption devices for direct high-speed connectivity. Coverage includes parts of Europe, the Middle East, the Caucasus region and Africa.
Linear Technology announces the LT3795, a 110V, high-side current sense DC/DC converter designed to regulate a current or voltage to a constant value, ideal for driving high brightness (HB) LEDs. Its 4.5V to 110V input voltage range makes it appropriate for a wide variety of applications, including automotive, industrial and architectural lighting. The LT3795 uses an external low side N-channel MOSFET and can drive up to 90V of white LEDs from a nominal 12V input, delivering in excess of 50 watts.
KCB Solutions is pleased to announce a new suite of SPST through SP6T switches designed to meet high power-handling requirements from 50 to 200 Watts. These switches are available in QFN-style packages and thermally conductive flange-mount packages.
