Raytheon Co and Lockheed Martin Corp are working with Japanese partners on rival projects to develop new radars that will enhance Japan's shield against any North Korean missile strike, according to government and defense industry sources. Raytheon is allied with Mitsubishi Electric Corp on the project while Lockheed is working with Fujitsu Ltd.
Fujitsu Ltd. and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. announced the development of a gallium-nitride (GaN) high-electron mobility transistor (HEMT) power amplifier for use in W-band (75 to 110 GHz) transmissions. This can be used in a high-capacity wireless network with coverage over a radius of several kilometers.
Fujitsu Limited, Panasonic Corporation, and DBJ have signed a MoU in which DBJ will make an investment and provide a line of credit for a new fabless company specializing in LSI design and development, which Fujitsu and Panasonic will jointly establish.
