Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
MECA offers a full line of DC blocking power dividers. Ideal for GPS, In building, 5G and backhaul upgrade applications. Available in; 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 16 way configurations in N, SMA, BNC and TNC connector styles covering 800 MHz to 2.200 GHz with expanded models coming soon covering 698 MHz to 2.700 GHz
MECA expands its extensive stripline power divider line to include L-Band 2- and 4-way Wilkinson power dividers which are optimized for excellent performance covering; 1.000 to 2.000 GHz, 2-way (802-2-1.500-M01) and 4-way (804-2-1.500-M02) with minimum Isolation of 20 dB, 0.3 dB max insertion loss and amplitude balance of 0.3 dB max.
MECA’s low PIM (-160 dBc Typ) reactive splitters for DAS applications, with rugged construction and excellent performance across all wireless bands from 0.698 to 2.700 GHz make them ideal for in-building or tower top systems. Also, the inline configuration makes for zoning friendly installs vs the more traditional T style models available. Available in2-way and 3-way, 7/16 DIN configurations and 4.3/10.0 soon. Capable of handling 500 W (max) with an IP 67 weatherproof rating.
San-tron Inc. has announced the release of their pSeries pressurized connectors, which provide low-loss, high-stability performance through 30 GHz at +/-65 psi. These pressurized connectors, which meet the IP68 standard, feature a simplified, three-piece design – body, center contact, and an innovative dielectric – which eliminates troublesome internal O-rings, gaskets, and silicone greases.
Pickering Interfaces, a leading provider of modular signal switching and instrumentation for electronic test and simulation, is expanding its range of 50 Ω 600 MHz PXI RF Multiplexers with 18 different configurations including a PXI two slot 32:1 configuration. This new range of PXI RF multiplexers (series 40 to 760) is available in the following configurations: dual, quad and octal SP4T, single, dual and quad SP8T, single and dual SP16T and single SP32T. All of the multiplexers have versions with automatic terminations to manage VSWR effects, which could degrade the performance of a test system.
Anritsu Company continues to address the test needs of signal integrity (SI) engineers with the introduction of options for its VectorStar® and ShockLine™ vector network analyzers (VNAs). The VectorStar Eye Diagram and ShockLine Advanced Time Domain (ATD) options are part of the expanding SI capabilities offered by Anritsu and provide SI engineers with improved tools to conduct channel diagnostics and model validation of high-speed digital circuit designs.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support forAmpleon’s BLM8G0710S-30PBG, a dual section, 2-stage power MMIC targeted as a general purpose driver or final stage amplifier in white space or ISM applications in the 700 to 1000 MHz frequency range. The BLM8G0710S-30PBG offers >51% typical drain efficiency and offers on-chip matching for ease of use. Ampleon designers integrate internal ESD protection for enhanced reliability.
Exodus Advanced Communications introduces AMP1124 which provides a typical output power of 100 W P1dB and 200 W Psat across 0.7-4.2 GHz frequency band. Using the latest in state of the art GaN devices, gain flatness is 4.0 dB peak to peak and requires 32 V at 40 A Max. Suitable for use with all modulations standards requiring high power and wide band coverage.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the availability of a new method of implementation (MOI) document for cable assembly compliance tests defined in Rev. 1.1 of the USB Type-C specification and Rev. 1.0 of the USB Type-C compliance test specification (CTS). M937xA PXIe Multiport VNA provides true multiport measurements with full N-port calibration and an inherent frequency domain measurement capability.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for API Technologies’ 345C single channel rotary joint. API rotary joints are used to transmit RF energy from a stationary RF source to a rotating RF line and find applications in military and commercial markets such as mobile satellite communication systems, radar systems including civil air traffic control, weather radars or anywhere rotational force might damage a transmission line.
