Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Skyworks introduced two new Wi-Fi switches that are ideal for WLAN networks, repeaters, ISM band radios, Bluetooth® systems, smartphones, and connectivity modules. The SKY13585-679LF is a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch intended for 1 to 6GHz applications.
The Altair Partner Alliance(APA) added systems engineering software from XLDyn, LLC to its lineup of software partnerships. The software is made up of two modules, XLSE and XL1D, which work together to automate the creation of system models and perform one dimensional (1D) multi-physics simulations.
Nano Dimension Ltd., a leader in the field of 3D Printed Electronics, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, has supplied the first DragonFly 2020 system designated for 3D circuitry and PCBs. The supply was made to a leading defense company in Israel for evaluation purposes and is expected to be installed at the partner’s site in the coming days.
Among the many technologies featured at the first ever EDI CON USA in Boston, MA this September, LPKF Laser & Electronics will be showcasing solutions for in-house rapid PCB prototyping. Today, more than ever, PCB prototyping is crucial to the electronic design process.
Aemulus, a leader in automated test equipment (ATE) solutions, and Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announce their strategic partnership in the development of a new microwave frequency tester.
Raytheon Co. showcased Cyber and Electromagnetic Battle Management, a new battle management tool, at Cyber Quest, a U.S. Army event that informs cybersecurity requirements and priorities. CEMBM integrates cyber and electromagnetic spectrum awareness capabilities into the Electronic Warfare Program Management Tool, an Army program of record since 2014.
Open air is getting crowded. Signals streaming back and forth from smart devices stretch existing fourth-generation wireless networks almost to their limits. As demands on these systems increase, University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers aim to open new frontiers in cutting-edge wireless communications.
Engineers can now create next-generation products easier, faster and more economically with advances across the ANSYS engineering simulation portfolio. Available today, ANSYS 17.2 offers a wealth of new functionality, including enhanced multiphysics coupling, new workflows for antenna design and automated temperature characteristics for electric machines.
