Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, introduced groundbreaking RF switching technology that is enabling early adopters to implement carrier aggregation solutions. Carrier aggregation allows mobile service providers to combine spectrum and increase data rate throughput by utilizing two or more bands simultaneously instead of the single band method used currently, thereby giving consumers an enriched data experience regardless of location.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces availability of the latest Silicon Carbide (SiC) power MOSFET from Cree Inc. (Cree). The second-generation SiC Z-FET™ 1200V MOSFET C2M0080120D delivers industry-leading power density and switching efficiency, at half the cost-per-amp of Cree’s previous-generation MOSFETs.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new single channel CMOS Driver for Microwave Switching Applications.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. announced that its industry-leading silicon-on-insulator (SOI) switching technology is now being utilized by European, Japanese, Korean and North American car manufacturers for advanced infotainment systems. Specifically, Skyworks’ solid state technology is enabling seamless low noise and broadband switching between audio, Blu-ray/DVD, navigation, cell phone and vehicle security display inputs as well as a variety of other high bandwidth media sources in automobiles.
SenarioTek announced the extension of the FlexMatrix reconfigurable RF switch matrix series to incorporate external signal conditioning. Now test engineers can easily route their required signal conditioning into RF switching paths for applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
S2D Microwave Inc. offers broad band 0.5 to 20 GHz, high performance 3 Bit, 60 dB switched bit attenuator. S3-AS6055R520 is a high performance compact unit with low insertion loss, fast switching speed, low harmonic distortion, Three-bit attenuation control has TTL driver.
A line of modular, highly reliable, solid-state systems for upgrading virtually all military and commercial radar transmitters with vacuum electron devices (VEDs) is available from Diversified Technologies Inc. of Bedford, MA.
NXP Semiconductors N.V. announced two 5V wideband IQ modulator devices that combine high dynamic range with fast on/off switching performance for use in radio frequency up-conversion. Operating between 400 MHz and 4 GHz, the BGX7100 and BGX7101consume less than 1 W power – 10-percent more efficient than other solutions on the market today.
Berkeley Nucleonics commercially releases a full line of high performance, robust, and extremely cost effective microwave/RF signal generators. This microwave/RF product line sets a new standard in performance to cost. Capable of producing in excess of 20 GHz, with very low phase noise, fast switching speeds, extensive modulation capabilities in a variety of packaging options, including benchtop, portable battery operation, 1U 19” rackmount, and card-level for OEM integration.
AMCAD Engineering announced the upgrade of its PIV semiconductor device analyzer family for the next generation of High Voltage Fast Switching (HVFS) Transistors.
