RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, announced that it is enabling Samsung's next-generation GALAXY Note II with RFMD's PowerSmart® Power Platforms — the industry's first and only converged multimode, multiband (MMMB) power amplifiers.
EB, Elektrobit Corp. has introduced the EB Propsim FS8 radio channel emulator for testing the wireless performance of mobile devices and chipsets. The FS8 is a compact MIMO emulator for testing 2G, 3G and 4G LTE technologies.
Researchers from A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (IME) have developed the first compact high performance silicon-based cavity-backed slot (CBS) antenna that operates at 135 GHz. The antenna demonstrated 30 times stronger signal transmission over on-chip antennas at 135 GHz. At just 1.6 mm x 1.2 mm, approximately the size of a sesame seed, it is the smallest silicon-based CBS antenna reported to date for ready integration with active circuits.
Aeroflex Ltd. and China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) announced that the Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between CMRI and Aeroflex for a co-operation covering both LTE and LTE-A technologies.
Aeris® Communications, the only cellular carrier built exclusively for machines, announced it has partnered with Novotech Technologies, a leading global distributor of wireless, machine-to-machine (M2M) products, services and solutions, to deliver M2M connectivity services. With this partnership, Novotech will begin distributing products connected by Aeris’ intelligent machine framework.
National Instruments introduced test solutions for 802.11ac WLAN and Bluetooth low-energy technology that combine NI graphical system design software and modular, FPGA-based PXI instrumentation to provide high-performance test capabilities that are completely user-programmable. These test solutions along with other cellular, navigation and wireless connectivity solutions from NI, help engineers thoroughly test their devices on a single high-performance platform.
Researchers from Rice University unveiled a new multi-antenna technology that could help wireless providers keep pace with the voracious demands of data-hungry smartphones and tablets. The technology aims to dramatically increase network capacity by allowing cell towers to simultaneously beam signals to more than a dozen customers on the same frequency.
ip.access has shipped an LTE-only version of its new E-100 dual mode access point to five customers for laboratory and field trials. This is an important staging point in the process of moving towards full commercial deployments and represents the company’s first LTE product shipments.
Operators Polkomtel and Aero2 have chosen Ericsson to supply WCDMA and LTE infrastructure in Poland. The upgrades will allow for expanded WCDMA and LTE coverage in northern and western Poland to keep pace with rapid uptake of smartphones and increased demand for mobile broadband.
