Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, adds new millimeter wave (mm-wave) waveguide frequency mixers available in six down-conversion and six up-conversion models that cover full Ka, Q, U, V, E, and W bands. Designs utilize high performance GaAs Schottky Barrier Beam Lead Diodes in balanced configurations that require a +13 dBm LO drive and display low levels of conversion loss.
The Modelithics® CLR Library for ANSYS HFSS has just been released and contains over 270 resistor, inductor and capacitor (RLC) component families as Microwave Global Models™. These models represent nearly 9,000 RLC components from the leading vendors. Modelithics models are measurement-based equivalent circuit models that accurately predict substrate and pad parasitic effects on surface mount components over frequency.
Keysight Technologies Inc., in collaboration with The University of California San Diego (UCSD), has demonstrated the world’s first 64 (8 x 8) and 256-element (16 x 16), 60 GHz silicon wafer-scale phased-array transmitter with integrated high-efficiency antennas for Gbps communications at 100 to 200 meters. With this demonstration, Keysight and UCSD have now proven that a 5G communication link is not only possible, but can deliver record performance.
High Speed Interconnects (HSI), a manufacturer of high-performance micro-coaxial cable and coaxial cable assemblies, will be exhibiting in booth #927 at BIOMEDevice 2015 in San Jose, Calif., December 2-3.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced the launch of its Class 4 microwave antenna line. Its Class 4 antennas provide the market’s best RF performance and allow mobile operators to deploy new microwave links even in ultra-dense areas where high levels of interference are present.
Rice University researchers have won $2.4 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct the most extensive experimental research yet of wireless technology that uses 100 or more antennas per base station to send tightly focused beams of data to each user, even as they move.
