Steatite Q-par Antennas, a microwave antenna, subsystem and consultancy company based in Leominster, UK, announces the launch of a new 2 to 24 GHz Dual Linear Sinuous Antenna, at the European Microwave Week 2013 event. The low squint ultra wide bandwidth antenna is suitable for use in the EW and SIGINT market providing intercept opportunities for a wide range of arbitrarily polarised hostile signals.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, introduced its first integrated power amplifier solution for ‘small cell’ and active antenna base stations that dramatically reduces board space while delivering high efficiency. Small cell solutions are key components in 3G/4G mobile networks including LTE.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that SystemVue, its premier platform for communications and aerospace/defense systems design, supports high-performance distributed computing. System architects of wireless, 4G smartphone and radar applications can now verify next-generation system performance up to 64 times faster using Linux-based grid computing managers such as the IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility.
Anritsu Co. will be showcasing a wide range of industry leading Test & Measurement solutions at the European Microwave Week 2013, to be held in Nuremburg 8th to 10th October. The newly released MS4640B series of VectorStar vector network analyzers (VNAs) will be on display, together with the MS2830A Spectrum and Signal Analyzers, a range of signal generators, and the handheld RF analyzers, all of which demonstrate different areas of technical leadership.
Park Electrochemical Corp. announced the introduction of its new NL9000 RF/Microwave electronics materials products. NL9000 materials are available globally. They have a dissipation factor (“Df”) of 0.0017 at 10 GHz using stripline testing methodology and a 0.5 dB/cm attenuation loss at 77 GHz for microstrip automotive radar applications.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced the newest entry in its portfolio of GaN in Plastic packaged power products. Optimized for L-Band commercial air traffic control, military radar, and long range perimeter monitoring applications at 1.2 to 1.4 GHz, MACOM’s new 2-stage, fully matched GaN in Plastic power module scales to peak pulse power levels of 100W in a 14 x 24 mm package size – delivering twice the power of comparably sized competing products.
A1 Microwave has released the world’s smallest waveguide X-Band Tx and Rx filters for military satcom applications. The filters have less than 0.3 dB insertion loss and have greater than 90 dB rejection in the complementary frequency bands. They are considerably shorter and lighter weight than equivalent filters on the market, which makes them ideal for portable solutions. These are stock items for immediate delivery.
Cobhamis taking direct aim at the growing market for rapidly deployable mobile cellular communications with the release of Cobham SATCOM’s new EXPLORER Mobile Net system.
Alcatel-Lucentis building on its leadership in microwave transmission technology with the addition to its portfolio of the ETSI-optimized 9500 Microwave Packet Radio (MPR) long-haul system.
Astriumand OHB System AG have signed a €344 million contract for the development, construction and launch of a high performance radar satellite for the ‘SARah’ satellite-based reconnaissance system.
