Bringing together engineers working in RF/microwave with those working in high-speed digital, EDI CON USA offers an opportunity to learn from other disciplines and transfer techniques and methods between applications. The exhibit floor will include booths from industry-leading companies working in both of these areas, as well as feature the SI ZONE, a specialized demo area for signal integrity, power integrity and EMI/EMC products.
Pentek Inc. announced a new member of its popular family of Talon® RF/IF signal recording and playback systems. The Model RTR 2727A rugged portable recorder targets applications needing to record and reproduce high-bandwidth signals. A complete PC workstation, the RTR 2727A provides high data capacity and aggregate recording rates of up to 4.0 GB/s in a four-channel system.
China Mobile, the world's largest mobile operator, has deployed a wideband massive MIMO site on its network in Shanghai, using equipment from Huawei. The live network demonstrated peak cell throughput rates of 72 Mb/s on the uplink and 630 Mb/s on the downlink.
Lockheed Martin was awarded a $1.2 billion contract to upgrade 134 F-16 aircraft for the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF). Among the enhancements are an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, a modern commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based avionics subsystem, a large-format, high-resolution center pedestal display and a high-volume and high-speed data bus.
Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, announced the launch of a European Commission Horizon 2020 project to enable mass commercialization of Si photonics-based transceivers to meet future data transmission requirements in data centers and super computing systems.
Microwave Journal visited electronica 2016, discovered Planet e and reports on the RF and microwave industry trends that were at the forefront of the world's leading trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications.
With a long heritage of innovations in YIG and low phase noise technologies, Teledyne Microwave Solutions has developed the first YIG-based synthesizer that substantially reduces the high cost of acquiring a high-quality, broadband low phase noise source.
Editors Pat Hindle and Gary Lerude cover the Nov 5G and IoT supplement technical articles and products, industry news and events along with an interview with ADI's CTO, Wireless Communications Infrastructure Business, Dr. Thomas Cameron.
This wireless BMS concept car, developed by Linear’s design partner LION Smart, combines Linear’s highly accurate battery stack monitors with its SmartMesh® wireless mesh networking products in a BMW i3, replacing the traditional wired connections between the battery packs and the battery management system.
ADI’s new RF-MEMS switch technology is enabling faster, smaller, lower power, more reliable instrumentation equipment by resolving multiple performance limitations commonly attributed to relays, whose origins date to the earliest days of the electric telegraph.
