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.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new X-Band GaAs LNA from M/A-COM. The MAAL-010528 offers higher gain and linearity performance in the 8.0 to 12.0 GHz band than many competing parts, as well as low noise figure and excellent gain flatness.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new digital-to-analog converters (DACs)from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). The AD9119 and AD9129 are high performance, 11-/14-bit RF DACs that support data rates up to 2.8 GSPS. The devices are based on a quad-switch architecture that enables dual-edge clocking operation.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the launch of a "smart filter" function on its website. The new smart filter allows users to quickly drill down through the nearly 100,000 semiconductors, systems and subsystems, M2M products, antennas, power supplies, interconnect and frequency control products, embedded solutions, passive devices, and electromechanical products using multiple search criteria.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three new high-performance bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF bandpass filters from TriQuint. The new BAW bandpass filters offer low insertion loss, high attenuation, greater power handling and temperature stability, and superior signal selectivity, making them ideally-suited for base station, repeaters, and other wireless infrastructure applications.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) transistor targeting land mobile radio from Freescale Semiconductor Inc.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced that it has received a 2012 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Co. issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. Richardson RFPD maintained a Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for five new laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor(LDMOS) power transistors from Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. (Freescale). The new devices are the most recent additions to Freescale's rapidly expanding portfolio of Airfast RF power products, which includes four devicestargeting land mobile radio that are also available from Richardson RFPD.
