NXP Semiconductors N.V. and Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which NXP will merge with Freescale in a transaction which values the combined enterprise at just over $40 billion.
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, introduced the IQC91000A, the only RF and microwave signal recording and playback system that can capture, digitize, and store up to 1000 MHz of the electromagnetic spectrum in real time without gaps and missed signal events within any frequency range from 500 MHz to 18 GHz with 50 dB of spurious-free dynamic range, the highest in the industry.
Holzworth Instrumentation released a higher output power revision of their popular HSM Series 12.5 and 20 GHz RF synthesizer modules. The phase coherent HSM12001B (10 MHz to 12.5 GHz) and the HSM18001B (10 MHz to 20 GHz) are broadband CW sources which are ideal for use as radar system LOs, system clocks, integrated OEM modules, ATE and embedded systems, as well as benchtop applications.
Anritsu Co. introduces a unique capture and playback function for its MS2830A and MS269xA Spectrum/Signal Analyzer families that brings the most challenging RF environments from the field into the laboratory or production line.
Mercury Systems Inc., a leading high-tech commercial provider of more affordable secure and sensor processing subsystems powering today's critical defense and intelligence applications, announced it received a $4.3 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for high performance signal processing subsystems for a ship-borne radar application.
Innovative Integration, a trusted supplier of signal processing and data acquisition hardware and software solutions, announced the FMC1000. The FMC-1000 is a high speed digitizing and signal generation FMC I/O module featuring two, 1250 MSPS A/D channels and two 2500 MSPS D/A channels supported by sample clock and triggering features.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced the AD9528 JESD204B clock and SYSREF generator defined to support the clock requirements for long-term evolution (LTE) and multicarrier GSM base station designs, defense electronics systems, RF test instrumentation, and other emerging wideband RF GSPS data acquisition signal chains.
