Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced it has extended its CompactLine® EASY family of microwave antennas with two new E-Band (71-86GHz) antennas, the SB1-W800C and the SC2-W800BYYY. RFS E-Band antennas provide the optimal combination of electrical and mechanical performance coupled with cost-effectiveness.
Northrop Grumman Corp., a designer and fabricator of advanced semiconductors, has developed two high performance Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) broadband ultra low noise amplifiers (LNA) that are in production for immediate delivery.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. introduced the industry’s highest power, full E-Band power amplifier, delivering typical Psat of 25.5 dBm for the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz frequency ranges in a single product.
Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS), Russia's largest mobile operator has contracted NEC Corp. to provide its iPASOLINK EX, outdoor, integrated, ultra-compact microwave communications system supporting 70-80 GHz band communications.
Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication and military markets, has announced a new E-Band MMIC power detector that is ideal for communications systems, test equipment, sensors and general purpose RF detection over the 71 to 86 GHz frequency range.
Infineon Technologies has started the production of its BGTx0 chipsets for wireless backhaul communication systems. The transceiver family provides a complete radio frequency (RF) front-end for wireless communication in 57-64 GHz, 71-76 GHz, or 81-86 GHz millimeter wave bands. Paired with a baseband/modem, the system solution requires less space, offers improved reliability and lower cost for the critical wireless backhaul links needed in mobile base stations that support LTE/4G networks.
A new application note from AWR highlights the use of AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software to develop a Q- to E-Band doubler and a K- to E-Band quadrupler circuit (including a medium E-Band power amplifier) for millimeter-wave wireless systems. The design effort resulted in an increase in gain as well as output power, two critical criteria for E-Band systems.
In response to the growing requirement for high data rate wireless applications, Plextek Ltd. has extended its test and measurement facilities to 75 GHz capability. This includes increasing development activity at V-Band (50 to 75 GHz) and E-Band (60 to 90 GHz).
