Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
The students at Technion—Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel have successfully designed a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) using NI AWR Design Environment™. The design challenge was to build an efficient, easy-to-use SAR simulator that would connect to MATLAB for signal processing and that could handle many targets on the surface and then use MATLAB to calculate the object shapes.
Anritsu Co.has released new functionality for the MD8475A, its network simulator, to provide the first laboratory hardware in the loop system level test for the European eCall system and Russian ERA/GLONASS system.
Averna, an industry-leading developer of test solutions and services for communications and electronics device-makers worldwide, announced today the industry’s first RF tool offering high-performance record-and-playback and real-time simulation in one cost-effective platform.
Keysight Technologies Inc. demonstrated the Advanced Design System (ADS) Electro-Thermal Simulator at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2015, Booth 739, Phoenix, May 17-22. The solution provides accurate, temperature aware IC simulation results by using device temperatures that take into account thermal coupling and thermal characteristics of the RFIC/MMIC component packaging.
W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) will be featuring its GORE® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies as well as the new Cable Installation Simulator at the International Microwave Symposium, May 19-21 in Phoenix, Ariz., Booth 1042.
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors brand (VFR) has introduced a new Bulk Metal® Foil RTD Simulator resistor with built-in climate control. Designed to simulate resistance temperature detector (RTD) PT-100 and PT-1000 outputs for the calibration of RTD instruments, the device features a low nominal TCR of ±1 ppm/°C from -55°C to +125°C, +25°C ref., and load-life stability of ±0.005% after 2,000 hours of rated power at +70°C.
Northrop Grumman Corp. has finished detailed performance testing on its Advanced Pulse Generator (APG), which represents the next technology evolution for the company's Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) product that is used to test and validate the performance of electronic warfare equipment.
