Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4125, a wireless power transmitter, complementing our wireless receiver ICs for the wireless charging market. The LTC4125 is a simple, high performance monolithic full bridge resonant driver, capable of delivering up to 5W of power wirelessly to a companion receiver. It functions as the transmit circuit component in a complete wireless power transfer system comprised of transmit circuitry, transmit coil, receive coil and receive circuitry.
IZT GmbH launched a new option for its powerful R4000 RF receiver. The 32768-point FFT option in combination with the 120 MHz real-time bandwidth ensures reliable detection of fast bursts and frequency-agile signals. Even the most advanced hoppers with extremely high hop rates are detected under demanding SNR environments. The Hopper Detector plugin provides real-time information about detected hoppers containing bandwidth, dwell time and time-of-arrival information.
EDI CON China is pleased to announce that Dr. Wai Chen, chief scientist and general manager of IoT at China Mobile, will be the chairman of EDI CON China 2016, taking place April 19-21, 2016 in Beijing at the China National Convention Center (CNCC). Dr. Chen presented in the plenary session of EDI CON 2015 about IoT Services “Opportunities and Challenges – A Perspective of a Mobile Operator.” He will lead the plenary session in 2016 with an updated outlook from China Mobile and their latest activities in the area of IoT.
Ting-Yen Shih, a Ph.D. student from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was announced the 2015 winner of the FEKO Student Competition. The contest, now in its 11th year, supports engineering education and academic excellence and is aimed at students interested in antennas, microwave devices, bio-electromagnetics, electromagnetic compatibility and other electromagnetic related fields.
Anritsu Co. introduces an E-band option for its ShockLine™ MS46500B series of 2- and 4-port performance Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) that addresses the market need to lower cost-of-test for E-band components. With the option installed, the MS46500B series can reduce production costs and more efficiently verify the performance of high-frequency passive components, such as antennas, filters, and duplexers during manufacturing.
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.
Bird Technologies, a leading provider of RF components, subsystems, test equipment, and services, introduced the SiteHawk SK-200-TC hand-held antenna and cable analyzer that operates from 300 kHz to 200 MHz. The instrument makes it simple to detect problems in coaxial transmission lines and antenna systems and pinpoint their source using distance-to-fault measurements.
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.
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.
