- Buyers Guide
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will work with the College of Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, to provide an enhanced learning experience for engineering students using Agilent’s BenchVue software.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits, is adding a new driver amplifier, the CMD192C5, to its growing product library. The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the highly popular CMD192 amplifier that until now had only been available in die form.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the launch of a new website resource focused exclusively on lab bench test components.
Hittite Microwave Corp. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to buy substantially all the assets of the Keragis Corp., a provider of extremely high power, wideband amplifier modules, located in San Diego, CA. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Pulse Electronics Corp., a leading provider of electronic components, introduces a new line of power splitters for its PIMinator low passive intermodulation (PIM) indoor distributed antenna system (iDAS) family. When there are multiple antennas in a building, the signals need to be split between the antennas. Pulse's power splitters are designed to work with its PIMinator line of antennas to ensure a PIM spec of -155 dBc at 2x20 W.
ParkerVision Inc., a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced that its patent portfolio once again ranked among the Top 25 companies in The Patent Board's Telecom and Communications Industry scorecard, published by The Wall Street Journal on March 17, 2014.
Anritsu Co. introduces TETRA analyzer and TETRA coverage mapping options to its industry-leading LMR Master™ S412E handheld analyzer. Combining the LMR Master’s best-in-class performance and compact durable design with the new TETRA measuring and analysis tools makes the handheld analyzer the most comprehensive test solution for deploying, installing, and maintaining public safety, transportation, utility and critical communication networks.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a significant enhancement to its Passive Network Monitoring System for converged telecommunication networks across 2G, 2.5G, 3G and now 4G LTE technologies.
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the SimpleLink™ CC2592 range extender that provides up to a 7x improvement in range when paired with TI’s 2.4 GHz low power RF solutions for ZigBee®, 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN and Bluetooth® low energy networks.
