IQE plc announces the launch of gallium nitride based, high electron mobility transistor (GaN HEMT) epitaxial wafers on 150mm diameter semi-insulating silicon carbide (SiC) substrates supplied by the WBG Materials subsidiary of II‐VI Inc. (NASDAQ: IIVI), a global provider of engineering materials and optoelectronic components.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3639, a 150V input-capable synchronous buck converter that delivers up to 100mA of continuous output current. It operates from an input voltage range of 4.5V to 150V, eliminating the need for an external transient suspension device. The LTC3639 utilizes internal synchronous rectification and a programmable peak current-mode design to optimize efficiency over a broad range of output currents.
BeSpoon, a fabless semiconductor company, and CEA-Leti have demonstrated an IR-UWB integrated circuit able to measure distances within a few centimeters’ accuracy, and have established a world-record operating range at 880 m (standard regulation) and 3,641 m (emergency situations).
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added support for Bird Technologies' through-line Bird Wideband Power Sensors (WPS) to the industry leading 3550 Hand-held Radio Test System. The addition of the Bird 5017 and support for other Bird power sensors allows the 3550 to improve measurement accuracies for in field test applications.
QinetiQ has developed a new radar, Alarm™, specifically designed to provide sufficient warning against short range, low trajectory rocket attacks, enabling personnel to take evasive action and significantly reduce casualties.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new series of antennas from Linx Technologies (Linx). The tiny, low-cost MicroSplatch antennas represent a groundbreaking alternative to the high cost, long lead times, and limited frequency choices of chip antennas.
Fast, precise, highly linear – users working with a frequency range over 67 GHz now also benefit from the unique features of the thermal power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz. The new R&S NRP-Z58 is the world's first power sensor that covers the frequency range continuously from DC to 110 GHz.
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that it has added support for Bird Technologies' through-line Bird Wideband Power Sensors (WPS) to the industry leading 3550 Hand-held Radio Test System.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced the Model 350AH1 solid state amplifier. This portable, self-contained, 350 watt/10 Hz to 1 MHz unit provides power, durability and dependability along with the versatility for a wide range of applications.
BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin Corp. recently completed a series of successful guided flight tests for 155-mm Long Range Land Attack Projectiles (LRLAP) as part of the on-going qualification test program at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
