Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new wideband, 10W single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch from Wavelex.
The CHR3763is a multifunction monolithic receiver, which integrates a balanced cold FET mixer, an LO buffer, and an RF low noise amplifier. It is ideally-suited for Ku-band VSAT applications, as is also versatile for a wide range of other applications, from military to commercial communications systems.
The SMA-connectorized, zero-degree WPD1040A is a Wilkinson-type power divider/combiner and features a low insertion loss of 0.50 dB (typical), high isolation of 18 dB (minimum) and excellent VSWR. It is suitable for LTE and land mobile radio (LMR), as well as RF bench test and mobile base station applications.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it is first to offer chipset and device manufacturers the ability to verify their 4x4 Downlink (DL) MIMO designs and products, accelerating the development of LTE and LTE-Advanced devices. The milestone was achieved in close collaboration with a leading device manufacturer using Anite’s Development Toolset - an easy to use solution for early stage testing..
Sonnet Software Inc. introduces Blink™, the first multi-solver passive device modeling suite, now available for purchase. Blink operates entirely from within the Cadence® Virtuoso® environment and is used for the analysis of on-chip passive devices such as spiral inductors and MIM capacitors.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that Nitronex, a GaAs labs company and leading producer of GaN-on-silicon RF power devices, has selected Agilent to provide a complete GaN design flow that spans both device modeling and circuit simulation. The flow uses Agilent EEsof EDA’s IC-CAP model extraction software and Advanced Design System (ADS) circuit and system simulator—both market-leading platforms in RF and microwave design.
Despite major GPS fitness device OEMs announcing new fitness products at CES 2014, it looks like an increasingly difficult battle between smart devices and wearables. Garmin launched its Vivofit fitness band and Vivoki/Vivahub corporate wellness solution. Magallen is one of the few companies in the GPS device OEM space that continues to show flashes of innovation, opening up its Echo watch platform to a range of third party smartphone application developers.
Wearable technology will be characterized by the diversity of products, but only the product categories with a clear use-case and therefore target audience will succeed. ABI Research projects the wearable device sales volumes in 2014 to come from healthcare and sports and activity trackers. While, the commercial launch of several smart glass products, including Google Glass will continue to drive interest in the wearable space, it will not be a significant commercial success in 2014.
