ViaSat has executed a contract with Boeing to build ViaSat-2, which is based on ViaSat’s next generation, Ka-Band satellite technology and architecture. ViaSat-2 is expected to be, by far, the world’s highest capacity satellite at the time of launch (scheduled for mid-2016).
Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new low noise amplifier, the CMD185P3, to its expanding line of standard amplifier products.
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies Group, introduced the IQC5000A Series RF Spectrum Capture and Playback System, the smallest, lightest, best-performing system available for the capture and playback of RF and microwave signals over short or long time spans for mission-critical applications.
Hittite Microwave Corp., a of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has introduced the HMC1023LP5E, a new addition to its IF/Baseband Processing integrated circuit product line.
Linear Technology introduces the LTM9013, a wideband RF-to-digital µModule® (micromodule) receiver that includes a high performance dual 14-bit, 310Msps analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a high IIP3 I/Q demodulator, two variable gain amplifiers, and 300MHz lowpass filters. The LTM9013’s quadrature sampling architecture enables acquisition of up to 300MHz of signal bandwidth with IMD3 performance of 66dB across the entire band.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
Tektronix Inc. unveiled its next generation of arbitrary waveform generators that offer up to 50 GS/s sample rate performance. The new AWG70000 Series supports a wide range of demanding signal generation requirements.
SAGE Millimeter's model SSP-24303-42-D1 is a low cost, production ready K-Band FMCW ranging and directional sensor module. The center frequency of the module is set at 24.125 GHz with +/-150 MHz frequency modulation bandwidth and +3 dBm nominal output power. The sensor operates from a single +5 .0 Vdc power supplier and typically draws 250-mA current and requires 0 to +15 volts voltage swing for electrical tuning.
Advantech Wireless Inc., a privately-held Canadian corporation and manufacturer of satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems, announced that it has received new orders in excess of $2M for its high power, high linearity GaN based SSPA line, covering both C-Band and Ku-Band.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Sangshin Elecom ceramic monoblock filters targeting digital pre-distortion (DPD) applications where anti-aliasing filters are required to improve system performance. Sangshin offers a complete line of filters with bandwidths of 400 MHz, 360 MHz, and 300 MHz in all popular cellular frequencies.
