The 32nd annual SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition took place last week (March 18-21) at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Organizers were projecting that 12,000 satellite communications professionals from 70 countries would attend this year's event featuring a world-class conference program led by 300 satellite communications power players and more than 16 hours of networking opportunities over the four day gathering.
An RF, Microwave and High-speed Design Conference can attract the perfect ecosystem of design-centric component, test equipment and simulation software vendors to its exhibition. This is a real bonus for attending engineers looking for solutions to their design challenges.
With talk of data rates of 100 Gb/s, thelines are blurred between high speed digital and microwave technology, never more true than at shows like DesignCon in Santa Clara and EDI CON in Beijing
The third annual installment of the EuMW Defence, Security and Space forum, organized by Microwave Journal and EuMW, was held this past Wednesday, 31 October 31st at the Auditorium of the Amsterdam RAI Conference and Exhibition Centre. The full-day forum focused on space and defence issues and featured an opening panel discussion on Radar enabling technologies from an industrial perspective, followed by the EuRAD Opening Session , a “Lunch and Learn” market analysis session hosted by Strategy Analytics entitled Military Satellite Trends and Outlook, an afternoon Session presented by industry and agency experts on the latest developments in RF Space systems targeting security interests and concluded with the EuMW Defence and Security Executive Forum and networking reception. The whole day event was sponsored by Peregrine Semiconductor, RFMD, TriQuint Semiconductor, National Instruments and Rohde & Schwarz.
The excitement over GaN devices for wireless applications continues in 2012 as leading integrated device manufacturers prepare to unveil their latest GaN products at European Microwave Week. Expect product announcements from Cree, M/A-Com Technology Solutions, NXP, OMMIC, RFHIC, TriQuint Semiconductor, UMS and WIN Semiconductors, which just introduced GaN processes to its pure-play foundry services this past February.
