Skyworks Solutions has launched a portfolio of CATV infrastructure products for DOCSIS 3.1 and EuroDOCSIS 3.1, including the first commercially available linear amplifiers in Europe that operate to 1218 MHz.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF Power measurement instruments, recently released a High Power RF Calibration System that for directional power sensors and RF watt meters from virtually all manufacturers including Bird Technologies. The system operates from 250 kHz to 3 GHz and up to 250W with combined uncertainty less than 1 percent. This frequency range covers the ISM, Land Mobile Radio and common mobile phone bands.
Qorvo®, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, is helping to advance smart home networking with a radio chip and software that significantly expand the ability of consumers to control their homes with spoken commands.
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.
Guerrilla RF Inc., a leading provider of high performance MMICs, introduces the GRF6011, the first member of the company’s growing list of failsafe switch and amplifier devices. Failsafe refers to the characteristic whereby one switch path defaults to a low loss state, when all power is removed.
A key application for this single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch is at the low noise amplifier (LNA) in a tower mounted amplifier (TMA), where this failsafe functionality is typically implemented using expensive mechanical relays or cumbersome Schottky diode switches external to a traditional LNA device
Molex has introduced 4.3-10 RF Connector System and Cable Assemblies that offer high-performance signal transmission with low passive intermodulation (PIM), 100% data traceability and less torque than current interfaces. The solutions include a connector that is 30 percent smaller and 60 percent lighter than DIN 7/16 and a cable assembly with a one-piece, patent-pending weatherproof boot ideal for use on outdoor cellular sites.
Mercury Systems has acquired mission computing company CES Creative Electronic Systems S.A. (CES). The acquisition was completed on November 4, 2016. The addition of CES adds important and complementary capabilities in mission computing, safety-critical avionics and platform management that are in demand from our customers.
Modelithics and KEMET recently collaborated to develop highly accurate measurement based equivalent circuit models for the KEMET CBR RF capacitor series, including EIA case sizes 0201, 0402, 0603, 0805 and 0505. These models are now available in industry leading simulation tools including Keysight ADS, Keysight Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment, ANSYS HFSS and Sonnet Suites.
