AWR Connected™ for ANSYS now offers an integrated two-way link between ANSYS® HFSS™ and NI AWR Design Environment™, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, enabling RF/microwave designers to seamlessly tie HFSS extracted S-parameters back into NI AWR software. This integration unites two industry-standard design tools, HFSS full-wave electromagnetic (EM) field simulation and Microwave Office, to quickly and accurately simulate microwave circuits.
Anokiwave Inc. announced the worldwide release of the Ka-band Tx Core IC family for earth terminal SATCOM applications. This Tx IC family coupled with Anokiwave’s K-band SATCOM Rx ICs provide a complete K/Ka-band earth terminal solution enabling auto-alignment of fixed earth terminals and auto pointing for SATCOM on the move applications using GEO satellite space assets.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability of a selection of Anaren devices for RF energy applications. RF energy refers to the emerging technology that uses an all solid-state semiconductor chain to generate RF power for heating and processing. Magnetron tubes are the primary technology employed for these applications. The benefits of solid-state RF energy over magnetron tubes include a lower-voltage drive, smaller form factor, and greatly-enhanced reliability.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced a M8040A high-performance BERT for testing PAM-4 and NRZ devices that operate up to 64 GBaud. Engineers in validation labs and R&D who characterize receivers on the physical layer for the next generation of data center interconnects will benefit from simplified test setups and repeatable and accurate results. Users can control the M8040A from a graphical and remote control interface.
Anokiwave announces the world’s first Ka-band Transceiver Quad Core IC for 5G wireless networks. The AWMF-0108 operates at 27.5 to 30 GHz, supports 4 Tx/Rx radiating elements, includes all requisite beam steering controls for 5-bit phase/gain control, and operates in half duplex, enabling a single antenna to support both Tx and Rx operation. Additional features include gain compensation over temperature, temperature reporting.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGL2927-SM, a 200 W (pulsed) limiter for radar applications in the 2 to 4 GHz band. Manufactured by Qorvo using VPIN technology, the TGL2927-SM offers low insertion loss of <0.6 dB with a high return loss of 15 dB. With a low flat leakage rate of <18 dBm, this limiter protects receive chains in both commercial and military S-band radar.
Custom MMIC has developed a growing family of distributed amplifiers, called BroadRange Distributed Amplifiers™, with bandwidths from DC to 50 GHz. The distributed amplifiers provide industry leading performance in terms of dynamic range, frequency bandwidth and power consumption. The BroadRange Distributed Amplifier™ product line consists of over ten released products. The amplifiers are provided in low-profile die or QFN packaged.
The Model MFC147 from TRAK Microwave provides 13.75 to 14.50 GHz coverage for civilian and military Ku-Band SATCOM applications, including in-flight entertainment (IFE) and UAV communications. The unit features a ruggedized design with innovative thermal management, utilizing surface-mount construction with no open die, to withstand challenging airborne environments.
The HA7062C real time phase noise analyzer is a cross correlation analyzer offering blazing fast data acquisition speeds with 0.1 Hz to 40 MHz measurement offsets. Accuracy is critical and is backed by an ANSI z540 calibration for NIST traceable data. Simultaneous AM/PM measurements with AM/PM isolation. Intuitive absolute and residual measurements and so much more.
Pasternack introduces the PEM009-KIT 60 GHz development system which offers designers the ability to perform product development and experimentation of single and multi-carrier high bandwidth modulation covering 57 to 64 GHz in the globally unlicensed ISM frequency spectrum. Applications include baseband development up to 7 Gbps data rates using WiGig/WiFi 802.11ad and 802.11aj IEEE standards.
