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.
Tech-X Corp. will exhibit at EDI CON USA 2016 , taking place in Boston, Mass., September 20-22. Stop by Booth #123 to learn about Vsim finite difference time domain (FDTD) electromagnetic (EM) and particle-in-cell (PIC) simulation. Applications include magnetron sputtering, helix traveling wave tubes (TWTs) klystrons, gyrotrons, plasma physics and antennas.
NI AWR Design Environment will be featured in the third annual NI-sponsored RF/Microwave Power Amplifier Forum being held during European Microwave Week (EuMW 2016), October 4-6 in London. Entitled Device Technologies, Characterization, Modeling and End-Use Applications, the forum takes place on Wednesday, October 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Room 6, Conference Area Level 3.
With the latest release of ANSYS AIM, organizations can accelerate product design through upfront simulation, mitigate late-stage design changes, and reduce the number of costly physical prototypes. Now available, ANSYS AIM 17.2 enhances engineering simulation for thermal management, extends collaboration between designers and analysts, and brings upfront simulation to Japanese engineers in their own language.
The Weightless SIG announced availability of Weightless-P hardware and the pre-launch of a Weightless-P Software Development Kit. In conjunction with Weightless Vendor partner, Antenova, Weightless-P hardware is to be shown at CTIA SuperMobility in Las Vegas, September 7-9. A limited number of free Weightless-P SDKs will be made available to developers in an offer specific to the show.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world's greatest engineering challenges, announced that its board of directors has elected Alex Davern, to serve as chief executive officer and president of National Instruments, effective January 1, 2017. Davern will succeed Dr. James Truchard, who has served as the chief executive officer of NI since the company's founding in 1976. Dr. Truchard will remain as chairman of the board.
The Altair Partner Alliance(APA) added systems engineering software from XLDyn, LLC to its lineup of software partnerships. The software is made up of two modules, XLSE and XL1D, which work together to automate the creation of system models and perform one dimensional (1D) multi-physics simulations.
Engineers can now create next-generation products easier, faster and more economically with advances across the ANSYS engineering simulation portfolio. Available today, ANSYS 17.2 offers a wealth of new functionality, including enhanced multiphysics coupling, new workflows for antenna design and automated temperature characteristics for electric machines.
NI announced LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite 2.0, a development environment specifically designed for prototyping wireless communications systems. This new version adds NI Linux Real-Time capability for all software defined radio (SDR) products including the NI USRP RIO and FlexRIO.
