Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Mini Circuits ZFRSC-4-842+ is a 4 way power divider that operates from DC to 8.4 GHz. It handles up to 0.16 W of input power and has an amplitude unbalance of 0.3 dB, a VSWR of 1.15:1. It is available in a rugged connectorized case with SMA connectors. The ZFRSC-4-842+ is ideal for use in the laboratory and for test and measurement applications.
Mini-Circuits GVA-91+ (RoHS compliant) is an advanced wideband amplifier fabricated using GaAs HBT technology, offering high gain and excellent power output with excellent power added efficiency in application bands. Lead finish is tin-silver over nickel. It has repeatable performance from lot to lot. Features include high power, 29.5 dBm typ. at 920 MHz, high gain, 20.4 dB typ. and high power added efficiency.
The ZX60-183A+ two-stage amplifier provides 28 dB gain in a very small package, only 0.75" x 0.74" x 0.46" high. Internal compensating circuitry provides a consistent, very flat response over the full bandwidth. Designed for 50 Ω SMA coax systems, the gold-plated package uses convenient 5 V DC power, and has a nickel-plated brass cover and unibody construction for rugged use.
Mini-Circuits announced that Ted Heil, Mini-Circuits vice president and chief operations officer has been appointed as president. He succeeds Harvey Kaylie as the second president in the company’s 46-year history.
For the fifth consecutive year, Raytheon has presented Mini-Circuits with the 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award at its annual supplier conference. The award recognizes top supplier performance based on overall quality and on-time delivery throughout the year. Mini-Circuits proudly accepts this honor as a significant achievement in our commitment to meeting customer needs with the highest standards of quality.
Mini-Circuits AVM-273HP+ is a three-stage balanced, wideband monolithic amplifier delivering up to 0.5 W power and operating over 13 to 26.5 GHz. It is designed using PHEMT technology and is unconditionally stable. Its outstanding isolation enables it to be used as a wideband isolation amplifier or buffer amplifier in a variety of microwave systems.
Mini-Circuits has teamed with Modelithics Inc. to develop high-accuracy simulation models of Mini-Circuits’ 3.2 x 1.6 mm case-size surface-mount LFCN low-pass filters and HFCN high-pass filters. The substrate-scalable models are validated up to 13 GHz, depending on the frequency band specifications of each filter.
Mini-Circuits is pleased to contribute to the 2013 IEEE Conference on Microwaves, Communications, Antennas, and Electronic Systems(COMCAS) as a platinum sponsor. Representatives from Mini-Circuits and MCDI, Mini-Circuits’ new distributor in Israel, will be exhibiting at Booth 31 with a showcase of its rapidly growing line of portable test equipment and other selected new products.
Mini-Circuits and Modelithics Inc. are working together to develop high-accuracy linear and non-linear models for selected surface-mount products. The latest offering includes three new X-Parameter* amplifier models for Mini-Circuits PHA-1+, GVA-62+ and GVA-63+ products.
Mini-Circuits and Modelithics Inc. have agreed to collaborate in the development of high-accuracy EDA simulation models of Mini-Circuits’ surface-mount microwave precision fixed attenuators YAT and RCAT series.
