The growth of 802.11ac and 802.11ad will occur in very different ways. 802.11ac will explode into devices, including smartphones, from the start while 802.11ad will see a more modest and staggered growth. 802.11ac is being pushed into smartphones by key carriers’ device requirements that are in sync with 802.11ac hotspot plans for more robust Wi-Fi offloading.
Cree Inc. reports it has surpassed a significant milestone in shipping over two million GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT) for cellular telecommunications and is providing game-changing benefits over traditional silicon-based technologies, including higher power, higher efficiency and wider bandwidth. As mobile devices such as smartphones are becoming more widespread, telecommunications companies are looking for innovative technologies to improve channel capacity and speed of wireless systems, while simultaneously lowering power consumption of transmission amplifiers.
Emerson Network Power Connectivity Solutions, a business of Emerson and a global leader in protecting and optimizing critical infrastructure, presents the Top Sales and Top Sales Growth awards at the Electronics Distributer Show (EDS), in Las Vegas.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new single channel CMOS Driver for Microwave Switching Applications.
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced the availability of AzMapper 2.5, the latest version of its mapping and analysis application for real world performance testing. AzMapper, a critical component of Azimuth’s Field-to-Lab™ solution, enables raw data collected with drive test scanners to be thoroughly analyzed and used to recreate that same radio environment through intelligent mapping of the logged field conditions to the available lab testbed.
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced new capabilities for the ACE™channel emulation portfolio that directly address LTE-Advanced test requirements.
AR Europe is proud to announce its new exclusive distribution agreement with Eastern Optx, a New Jersey based company that designs and manufactures fibre optical delay systems. This new product line includes radar target simulation systems, radio altimeter test sets and channel replicators.
Pentek Inc. announced an enhancement to its fastest-ever data acquisition XMC module for the popular Cobalt® family. The Model 71641, capable of digitizing one 12-bit channel at 3.6 GHz, or two channels at 1.8 GHz, comes preconfigured with a programmable one- or two-channel digital downconverter (DDC) loaded into the onboard Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. The new module is ideal for wideband radar and software defined radio (SDR) applications.
Azimuth Systems introduced the latest upgrade to its ACE™ MX and MX2 MIMO channel emulators. The sixth release includes increased support for multi-link and mesh networks and an updated version of DIRECTORTM II test executive software (release 7.6) for enhanced functionality and ease-of-use.
octoScope Inc. announced a logic implementation of its MIMO octoFade™ wireless testing solution. When applied to a wireless signal using digital signal processing, channel emulation makes the signal appear as though it has traversed a realistic space, having been reflected from walls, cars, people or other surfaces.
