Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced the industry’s fastest 4-channel, 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC), clocking in at 250 MSPS. The high-density ADS4449 enables receiver systems to support up to 125 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth in extremely small forms, such as multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) base stations and munitions guidance, or in greater density applications, such as active electrically scanned array (AESA) and other phased-array radars.
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.
NXP Semiconductors N.V. introduced a groundbreaking family of programmable AISG transceivers for wireless base stations and antenna line devices (ALDs) such as tower-mounted amplifiers (TMAs) and remote electric tilt (RET) antennas.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the POCSAG testing option for the 3920 Series Digital Radio Test Set. With this option, the 3920 Series can now be used to verify the operation of POCSAG pagers and paging systems.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a double-ridged horn antenna that has a frequency range of 6 to 18 GHz. The new PMM DR-01 is designed for radiated emissions and immunity applications, featuring an antenna factor of 36 dB/m to 41 dB/m and excellent sensitivity for emissions measurements.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced an enhanced solution for PCI Express® 3.0 receiver characterization at DesignCon.
BAE Systems Australia and industry partners have designed, manufactured and tested hardware and software for a space-qualified GPS receiver, as part of Project Biarri.
Radio Design Group Inc. announces the introduction of the RFDU-400 modular RF Distribution Unit. Designed for use in a variety of receive applications, the RFDU-400 integrates several functions in one compact system, including direction finding commutation, digitally controlled band-reject filtering, signal routing, and system noise testing.
CML Microcircuits has released new function images for their successful CMX7131/7141 family of digital PMR processors.
