- Buyers Guide
Giga-tronics has introduced the GT-1000B option 06 and the GT-1050B/GT-1051B olid-state ultra-wideband microwave power amplifiers which cover 100 MHz to 20 GHz and 10 MHz/2 GHz to 50 GHz respectively, with high output power, low noise figure and low harmonics in a single amplifier.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is introducing a new 6-20 GHz Low-Noise Amplifier to its growing product library, the CMD194C3. The new packaged broadband amplifier offers low noise figure and high gain while requiring a single-supply voltage.
DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the commercial availability of its 60 GHz technology in the Horizon® Compact+ and Avenue Link product lines. Currently in production, DragonWave’s 60 GHz products have already been deployed in successful small cell mobile operator trials. These products are well suited for metro deployment in small cell architectures due to their small form factor and high-capacity, low-delay transport capabilities. Because the 60 GHz spectrum is widely available and generally offered at a lower cost than other bands, the newly incorporated technology offers network operators more product options to cost effectively plan and deploy emerging small cell and LTE/LTE-A backhaul deployments around the world.
San-tron Inc. (www.santron.com), a leading manufacturer of RF and microwave coaxial connectors and cable assemblies, has announced the hiring of two new sales representatives, McLane Associates and Amplitude Technical Sales. McLane Associates will handle sales in Upstate New York for San-tron while Amplitude Technical Sales will cover the Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey territories.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA Software, will be exhibiting in Booth A505 at the 2013 Microwave Workshops and Exhibition (MWE 2013) from November 27 to 29 in Yokohama, Japan. Software demonstrations of the AWR Design Environment™ will inform and educate attendees about key features and applications.
Raytheon Co. plans to increase the size of its Forest manufacturing facility by more than 20,000 square feet and hire more than 150 new workers, Raytheon and state officials announced.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc., a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Mindspeed Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for communications infrastructure applications, for $5.05 per share in a cash tender offer.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new diffused metal oxide semiconductor (DMOS) transistor from STMicroelectronics (ST).
It's a bouncing baby . . . star! Combined observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the newly completed Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile have revealed the throes of stellar birth as never before in the well-studied object known as HH 46/47.
Mobile Experts has released a new forecast for Active Antenna Systems (AAS), including new information about how beamsteering technology will be adopted in mobile networks. In Active Antenna Systems 2013, Mobile Experts calculates the cost per bit delivered to illustrate the cost/benefit ratio inherent in AAS technology, and applies guidance from more than 20 operators to understand situations where active antenna systems will be used.
