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.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world's greatest engineering challenges, announced that its Board of Directors has elected Alex Davern, age 49, to serve as Chief Executive Officer and President of National Instruments, effective January 1, 2017.
NI announced the NI PXIe-4135 source measure unit (SMU) with a measurement sensitivity of 10 fA and voltage output up to 200 V. Engineers can use the NI PXIe-4135 SMU to measure low-current signals and take advantage of the high channel density, fast test throughput and flexibility of NI PXI SMUs for applications such as wafer-level parametric test, materials research and characterization of low-current sensors and ICs.
Ural Federal University students have successfully realized an RF miniaturized branch-line coupler using the NI AWR Design Environment™ platform, inclusive of Microwave Office circuit and AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulators.
A new and improved EM Socket II architecture within NI AWR Design Environment™ has been developed in order to enhance the AWR Connected™ for EM interoperability between third-party electromagnetic (EM) simulation tools and the company’s flagship high-frequency circuit design software, Microwave Office.
AWR Connected™ for ANSYS now offers an integrated two-way link between ANSYS® HFSS™ and NI AWR Design Environment™, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, enabling RF/microwave designers to seamlessly tie HFSS extracted S-parameters back into NI AWR software. This integration unites two industry-standard design tools, HFSS full-wave electromagnetic (EM) field simulation and Microwave Office, to quickly and accurately simulate microwave circuits.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced an early access version of the WLAN Measurement Suite with support for the IEEE 802.11ax (draft 0.1) high-efficiency wireless draft standard. The WLAN Measurement Suite, combined with NI’s RF vector signal transceiver (VST), empowers engineers to measure the performance of their 802.11ax designs confidently in the presence of significant new changes to the 802.11 physical layer specification.
NI, a provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced the NI PXIe-4081 7½-digit high-performance DMM and 1.8 MS/s isolated digitizer. The NI PXIe-4081 is the first PXI Express DMM available. It offers engineers the flexibility, resolution and isolation needed to tackle challenging applications that require smarter test systems in industries ranging from consumer electronics to aerospace and defense.
NI, the provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announcedtoday the world’s first software defined radio (SDR) for the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum. The new NI mmWave Transceiver System is a full transceiver that can transmit and/or receive wide-bandwidth signals at an unprecedented 2 GHz real-time bandwidth, covering the spectrum in the E-band, 71 to 76 GHz.
NI announces that NI AWR Design Environment™ V12 will be highlighted at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2016, being held in Beijing, China April 19-21. In addition to demonstrations in NI Booth #315, the software will be featured in two 40-minute workshops.
