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.
Rakon UK is proud to announce it has developed a 7 x 5 mm small form factor acceleration tolerant TCXO. The RFPT705 TCXO is available now with frequencies from 16 to 40 MHz and uses Rakon’s patented dual-crystal design giving better than 0.5 ppb/g acceleration sensitivity. It is based on Rakon’s proprietary Pluto™ TCXO ASIC, a single chip oscillator with an analogue compensation circuit, which results in a frequency versus temperature stability as tight as ± 200 ppb.
Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions and an IDT company, has enhanced its innovative XpressO line of low jitter configurable oscillators with the XpressO-TC, a new TCXO version with custom frequencies up to 250 MHz. As with all XpressO oscillators, the new TCXOs can be delivered in less than ten working days, a major improvement over the standard lead times of competitive offerings.
Tektronix Component Solutions, a custom microelectronics services provider, announced an agreement with leading supply chain aggregator MOSIS to help customers develop complete, high-performance ASIC solutions while reducing the cost of early-stage ASIC development. Through the use of multi-project wafer runs for device prototyping and package development early in the design cycle, customers can costeffectively improve the time to first packaged ASIC.
