RFMW Ltd. and Ampleon announce the extension of their distribution relationship. Ampleon is the RF Power Business Unit that was recently spun-off from NXP Semiconductors. Under the agreement, RFMW will extend their franchise agreement to EMEA including Israel for the entire RF Power business activity, including sales and support of the complete line-up of Ampleon’s LDMOS and GaN RF Power products.
Anritsu Co. introduces the Signaling Tester MD8475B, the world’s first all-in-one test solution supporting up to four component carrier aggregation (4CC CA) and 2x2 MIMO in a single test box. Integrated with the SmartStudio GUI, the MD8475B lowers cost-of-test and reduces space requirements compared to conventional solutions that require several test instruments, providing engineers with a highly efficient tool to conduct tests on chipsets, modules, and mobile platforms integrating the most recent LTE-Advanced specifications.
The K706 Digital Transceiver from Innovative Integration supports two antenna inputs and four independent channels of DDC, two channels of DUC, and one spectrum analyzer embedded in a Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA. It supports monitoring and/or recording of wide- or narrow-band spectra or channelized IF band data. The analog front-end is modularized via an FMC site which, fitted with an FMC-1000, employs dual 1 GHz 14-bit ADCs and DACs. The product supports contiguous recording at 160 MByte/s to internal 1.8” SATA drives until running out of disk space.
Modelithics Inc., premier provider of advanced simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices, has released the latest version of The Modelithics® COMPLETE Library, version 16.1, formatted for use with NI AWR Design Environment™.
Qualcomm Inc. along with its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies Inc., announced Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G New Radio (NR) prototype system and trial platform. The 5G NR prototype system operates in the sub-6 GHz spectrum bands and is being utilized to showcase the company’s innovative 5G designs to efficiently achieve multi-gigabit per second data rates and low latency.
Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, releases an all new product line of voltage controlled oscillators covering select bands from 10 MHz to 11 GHz. A comprehensive and growing portfolio of VCOs from Fairview includes over 60 different models in true surface mount and coaxial packaged versions available off-the-shelf from stock.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces the availability of its discontinued products through the Arrow Electronics’ Supply Assurance program, enabling customers to order obsolete Peregrine products beyond the product’s end-of-life process and last-time-buy event.
Ericsson and King's College London will be demonstrating a 5G use case of tactile robotic surgery that will show a probe as a robotic representation of a biological finger that gives the surgeon the sense of touch and can send accurate real-time localization of hard nodules in soft tissue.
