M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM), a supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new limiter diode designed for passive limiter control circuits in L- and S-Band applications.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced the Model 350AH1 solid state amplifier. This portable, self-contained, 350 watt/10 Hz to 1 MHz unit provides power, durability and dependability along with the versatility for a wide range of applications.
ON Semiconductor has introduced a new family of tunable RF components (TRFC) that address the design challenges faced by engineers developing the latest generation smartphones. The new devices optimally combine tuning range, RF quality factor (Q) and frequency operation, providing a superior solution to existing fixed approaches.
Advantech Wireless Inc., a privately-held Canadian corporation and manufacturer of satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems, announced that it has received new orders in excess of $2M for its high power, high linearity GaN based SSPA line, covering both C-Band and Ku-Band.
This was the first year at the new venue for Mobile World Congress taking place at the Fira Gran Via. The new venue has eight large halls laid out in a linear fashion (hard to know if you count Hall 8 and 8.1 as two of not). The top floor ran over all of the halls making it easy to get from one place to the next despite the large crowds of people. There were also nice outdoor garden areas along the concourse for networking. The show formally announced that 72,000 people attended the show making it by far the largest wireless show in the world.
Coupling Wave Solutions S.A. (CWS) announced that STMicroelectronics has adopted the WaveIntegrity™ analysis tools to remove risk caused by on-chip, package and PCB parasitics. Following multiple evaluations, STMicroelectronics is deploying WaveIntegrity across multiple groups.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona the latest version of UltraCMOS® process technology — Semiconductor Technology Platform 8 (STeP8). STeP8 technology shows a 36 percent improvement in RonCoff performance over STeP5 technology announced just one year ago — dramatically improving the linearity, insertion loss, and isolation capabilities of Peregrine’s RFIC products.
