We were pleased that the MTTS IMS 2010 Chairman, JK McKinney, was able to find a few minutes to spend with us for an update on how the conference and show preparations are coming as it kicks off next week in Anaheim, CA. McKinney said the registration and exhibitor sign up is going well and ahead of previous show numbers. He stated that there are over 250 technical papers being presented orally in about 60 sessions within the four major areas of Microwave Field & Circuit Techniques, Passive RF & Microwave Components, Active RF & Microwave Components, and RF & Microwave Systems & Applications. There are also 122 papers being presented in an interactive forum.

MTT-S Product Showcase: Aeroflex / Inmet
Aeroflex / Inmet announced the release of the first series of the iCALIBER family of RF test cables. The iCALIBER brand combines the quality and performance of a high end test cable with the low cost of ownership normally reserved for economy grade test cables commonly found in the marketplace. Normal failures due to crushing, flexure and kinking are eliminated through the use of a robust spiraled stainless steel casing. These cable assemblies allow for a small bend radius with minimal spring back and exhibit low loss and VSWR characteristics while providing excellent phase stability.
