Crystek's CVCO55CC-2700-2700 voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) operates at 2700 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 ~4.5 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -118 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +7 dBm.
Aeroflex Ltd. has enhanced its S-Series signal generators (SGA and SGD) with improved phase noise and better RF level accuracy. At a carrier frequency of 1 GHz, phase noise is now improved by 6 dB at frequency offsets from 100 kHz to 1 MHz, giving a figure of typically -140 dBc/Hz between these offsets.
Test equipment and EDA vendors to promote SI, high-speed and EMC/EMI design solutions at EDI CON 2014
CST, a leading EM simulation software vendor for high-speed and Signal Integrity analysis and Anritsu, a leading provider of test instruments for SI and high-speed digital measurements, RF/microwave and wireless test solutions will be among the premier level EDI CON sponsors highlighting SI and high speed solutions in their submitted presentations to the technical conference, workshops and in-booth demos. Both will discuss the challenges of high speed interconnect characterization and the use of frequency based measurement/modeling approaches such as s-parameters in the time domain analyses favored by high-speed designer.
AWR Corp. has released a new customer success story that demonstrates how the AWR Graduate Gift Initiative played a role in helping Dr. Dominic FitzPatrick found PoweRFul Microwave.
The new R&S SMW-K541 digital predistortion option from Rohde & Schwarz allows users to import predistortion coefficient tables directly into the R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator.
The European Space Agency has announced that the in-orbit validation of Galileo has been achieved: Europe now has the operational nucleus of its own satellite navigation constellation in place – the world’s first civil-owned and operated satnav system
Anite has launched a major multi-link emulation enhancement to its Propsim channel emulator platform, significantly increasing the performance testing capacity of LTE-Advanced multi-mode chipsets, devices and base stations.
Focus on Signal Integrity and High Speed Digital Design in Technical Conference and Workshops at EDI CON 2014
Signal integrity engineers and high speed digital engineers of multi-gigabit links are experiencing design challenges often associated with microwave frequencies. As a result, test instrument and simulation software vendors are providing solutions to tackle high speed channel characterization and design. The EDI CON technical tracks have been expanded in 2014 to include a new dedicated signal integrity, high-speed digital and EMC/EMI modeling/measurement track featuring papers on the challenges facing high-speed digital designers at the chip, package and board levels. The added HSD/EMC measurement and modeling track will take place on Thursday morning, April 10th. This track comprised of eight, 20 minute peer-reviewed presentations will complement related papers in the design tracks and various afternoon workshops held throughout the entire conference.
Rockwell Collins announced that China Eastern Airlines has selected a comprehensive suite of its communication, navigation and surveillance avionics and SATCOM for 80 new aircraft, including 60 Airbus A320s and 20 Boeing 777s.
