Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduced its LED camera flash driver solutions. Skyworks’ patented AS2Cwire™ digital interface is used to enable, disable, configure and program the operation of AAT1274, a high efficiency, 1.5A high-current boost converter for LED photo flash applications.
Remcom announces a major update to XGtd®, a tool for analyzing far zone radiation, RCS, and EMI/EMC for electrically large platforms. The new version, Release 2.6, includes new functionality for radar cross section (RCS) applications including a more accurate hybrid model based on Physical Optics (PO) and the Method of Equivalent Currents (MEC), new output types for far zone RCS and antenna gain field points, ray path visualization to far zone field points, and visualization of edges considered by the calculation to be part of curved surfaces.
Anritsu Co. introduces software options for its MT8820C radio communication analyzer that allows the one-box tester to perform testing of LTE FDD Band 22 and LTE TDD Band 42/43 LTE smartphones and mobile terminals. The extended functionality enhances the capability of the MT8820C, which can be used to test all mobile communications technologies, and allows the inherent cost and time efficiencies associated with the MT8820C to be realized in the development of LTE FDD Band 22 and LTE TDD Band 42/43 LTE phones and devices.
National Instruments introduced NI LabVIEW 2012, the latest version of its system design software. Users gain ready-to-run starting points for a breadth of LabVIEW applications and access to new training options that help improve the quality of their systems.
National Instruments introduced the world’s first RF vector signal transceiver (VST), the NI PXIe-5644R, and with it, a new class of software-designed instrumentation. This software-centric architecture represents a new era in which engineers and scientists can use LabVIEW to tailor open, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based hardware for their specific needs.
Agilent Technologies Inc. and AT4 wireless announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for Agilent to acquire the assets of AT4 wireless' Test Systems business. Privately held AT4 wireless, based in Malaga, Spain, is a global provider of testing services and solutions for wireless communications.
