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.
Coilcraft’s 0603USB Series Common Mode Chokes virtually eliminate common mode noise in high-speed, differential mode signal transmission applications such as USB 3.0, HDMI, SATA, IEEE1394 and LVDS, supporting data rates up to 4.8 Gbit/s.
KCB Signal Solutions announces a new, unique envelope tracking product line aimed at the emerging medium power RF transmitter market. The product line will be aimed at RF transmitters that must deal with complex waveforms, such as LTE, while transmitting between two to eight watts of average RF power.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, introduced two RF power detectors with wide dynamic range and best-in-class accuracy and temperature stability.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced the industry’s smallest monolithic point-of-load (POL) DC/DC converters for harsh environments, including radiation tolerant, geological, heavy industrial, and oil and gas applications. The 6.3 V, 6-A TPS50601 and the 6.3 V, 3-A TPS50301 are synchronous step- down converters optimized for small form factor designs.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a second series of quad 16- and 12-bit 3 V/5 V D/A converters in space-saving 16-lead LFCSP and TSSOP packages. These new AD5686/96 nanoDAC+™ quad D/A converters offer the industry’s best DC performance (INL is ±2LSB max, offset error is ±1.5mV max and gain error is ±0.1% max) in the smallest package (3 x 3 mm LFCSP), with SPI or I²C interface options.
