TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has released three new packaged GaAs RF power amplifiers that deliver high output, gain and efficiency for commercial and defense applications including point-to-point microwave radio, radar, VSAT and related applications.
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. is showcasing its new lightweight integrated airborne satellite communications solution for UAVs at LAAD 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on April 9-12.
A NASA C-20A piloted aircraft carrying the Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) is wrapping up studies over the U.S. Gulf Coast, AZ, and Central and South America. The plane left NASA's Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, CA.
Mini-Circuits and Modelithics Inc. have agreed to collaborate in the development of high-accuracy EDA simulation models of Mini-Circuits’ surface-mount microwave precision fixed attenuators YAT and RCAT series.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new X-Band GaAs LNA from M/A-COM. The MAAL-010528 offers higher gain and linearity performance in the 8.0 to 12.0 GHz band than many competing parts, as well as low noise figure and excellent gain flatness.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the addition of enhanced VSWR (return loss) and distance to fault to the tracking generator functionality of the Aeroflex 3550 Digital Radio Test System. By utilizing the sweep of the tracking generator, the 3550 can measure and display the VSWR of an antenna or find the location of one or more faults in a cable.
Cassidian and Astrium Services aim is to provide operations centres and the departmental fire and rescue services in France with access to dedicated satellite communications that are available 24/7.
Vaunix Technology Corp. announced the addition of eight new models to its LMS Series of signal generators. The additions are in response to customer demand for defined frequency bands through 4 GHz, specifically 70 to 450 MHz, 250 to 1500 MHz, 600 to 3200 MHz, and 1000 to 4000 MHz.
Keithley Instruments Inc. announces enhancements to its Automated Characterization Suite (ACS) software that support its expanding family of high power semiconductor characterization solutions.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the RFPA2026, 700 to 2700MHz, 2W power amplifier module from RFMD. The RFPA2026 is a 3-stage module with independent bias control for each stage plus the ability to bypass the first stage to reduce gain and power consumption. With all stages active, the RFPA2026 provides 38dB of gain at 2140MHz with a corresponding P1dB of 33dBm.
