Qorvo®, a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications, announced the availability of a ZigBee 3.0 software development kit (SDK) for Smart Home gateways that incorporate the new GP712 radio communication controller chip from GreenPeak Technologies (now the Low Power Wireless business unit of Qorvo).
Mentor Graphics Corp. announced a comprehensive product-creation platform based on PADS® PCB software that enables individual engineers and small teams to solve the engineering challenges involved in creating today’s electronic products.
NI AWR Design Environment™ will be showcased in a slate of activities at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016, taking place in San Francisco May 22-27. A number of NI AWR software demonstrations on load-pull and radar systems, as well as antenna design and third-party integration flows will be on display in Booth #1529. Also being showcased is AntSyn™, a new, cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) antenna synthesis and optimization solution that enables designers to input their antenna engineering requirements and produce antenna designs as outputs.
Engineers at BE CAE & Test (Catania, Italy) have taken the simulation process well beyond the typical approach of “run a test / deliver a report.” Instead, using the COMSOL Multiphysics software and the Application Builder, they have created a series of easy-to-use custom applications that perform state-of-the-art virtual prototyping of their customers’ surface-mount device designs. The apps hide the complexity of the underlying detailed model, yet still provide access to the powerful functionality of the simulation.
Altair has acquired AWE Communications GmbH (AWE) based in Gärtringen, Germany. AWE was founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the University of Stuttgart and the main focus has been the development of the WinProp Software Suite for wave propagation and radio network planning.
NI announces that NI AWR Design Environment™ V12 will be highlighted at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2016, being held in Beijing, China April 19-21. In addition to demonstrations in NI Booth #315, the software will be featured in two 40-minute workshops.
Altair invites engineering students from across the globe to participate in the 14th annual FEKO Student Competition. The competition is open to all students who work on a supervised project in electromagnetic engineering and make use of FEKO, Altair's HyperWorks solution for electromagnetic simulation.
Mentor Graphics Corp. announced its newest HyperLynx® release which integrates signal and power integrity analysis, 3D-electromagnetic solving, and fast rule checking into a single unified environment.
Modelithics Inc., the industry leader in simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices, has just released a new version of The Modelithics® COMPLETE Library, version 16.0, formatted for use with Keysight EEsof EDA Advanced Design System (ADS) simulation software from Keysight Technologies.
Anritsu Co. introduces software packages for its all-in-one Radio Communication Analyzer MT8821C that support LTE-Advanced UE Downlink (DL) 4x4 MIMO and Downlink Carrier Aggregation (DL CA) 5CCs. The new software packages further strengthen the test functionality of the MT8821C and help create a single-instrument solution that can speed time to market and lower test costs of LTE-Advanced chipsets, smartphones, tablets and M2M modules used in IoT applications.
