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.
The value choice for deploying, maintaining and troubleshooting wireless base stations. Compact and lightweight, it combines the functionality of built-in cable and antenna analyzer, spectrum analyzer, power meter, and GPS.
Agilent announces the latest release of its industry-leading, low-cost, high-performance software for RF and microwave board design, Genesys 2012. The updated software provides enhancements in RF system simulation (including electromagnetic, circuit and statistical simulation), plus features to help designers improve the reliability of their systems.
PMI Model Number DTA-100M40G-30-CD-1 is a 5-Bit, digitally controlled 30 dB PIN diode attenuator with a step resolution of 1 dB covering the frequency range of 100 MHz to 40 GHz. This model operates on +5 VDC and only draws 40 mA. Attenuation accuracy of 0.6 dB is achieved due to PMI's proprietary digital calibration techniques.
PMI Model number PTB-40-0R118-6R5-21-120VAC-1U-SFF is an integrated microwave assembly that provides high gain and operates from 100 MHz to 18 GHz. This unit features integrated digitally controlled attenuators with ranges up to 60 dB. The attenuation can be controlled via the external optical encoded knob or via RS-232 and Ethernet.
The BBS3G6QHM (SKU 2135) by Empower RF is a dual band, ultra broadband high power linear amplifier. This solid state 50 W amplifier covers the 300 to 3800 MHz instantaneous frequency band that targets the high use, wireless infrastructure bands.
Skyworks Solutions has introduced three low-noise and high-linearity LNAs for 1.6 to 3.0 GHz receiver applications. The SKY67002-396LF, SKY67003-396LF and SKY67102-396LF are single-stage, GaAs pHEMT LNAs that offer ultra low noise figure, high linearity and excellent return loss in a small QFN package.
Hittite has launched two exciting new SMT packaged clock generators, the HMC1032LP6GE and the HMC1034LP6GE. Ideal for a wide range of high performance cellular/4G infrastructure, fiber optic and networking applications, these devices deliver best-in-class jitter and industry-leading phase noise floor.
Linear Technology has developed the LTC6946, the first device in a family of high performance integer-N frequency synthesizers with integrated VCO, delivering −226 dBc/Hz normalized closed-loop in-band phase noise, −274 dBc/Hz normalized in-band 1/f noise and best-in-class −103 dBc spurious output.
