NEL Frequency Controls Inc. announced the release of a new reduced height profile option for its ultra low phase noise OCXO at 100 MHz. The O-CIH-X Series is now available with 0.4’’ (10.2 mm) height profile in addition to the 0.5” (12.7 mm) original model. This OCXO offers superior close-in phase noise of -105 dBc/Hz and -185 dBc/Hz phase noise on the floor.
LTE-capable networks will continue to mushroom around the globe through 2018. In particular, frequency-division duplex (FDD) networks will see their population coverage expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33 percent between 2012 and 2018 to hit 57 percent. Time-division duplex (TDD) networks will gain ground at a more rapid rate of 43 percent during this period but will only reach 52 percent population coverage due to fewer licensed markets currently.
AWT Global has launched a new line of field strength meters with spectrum analyzer capability: The UBA 9290 Series. The battery operated, handheld analyzers are well suited for wireless field applications but are also a very useful tool in the RF laboratory.
Infineon has in development a complete family of packaged RF Transceiver for Mobile Backhaul – beside BGT70 and BGT80 for E-band radio, also BGT60 for V-band radio.
Tektronix Inc. announced that lab testing has shown that its next generation performance oscilloscopes - due for availability in 2014 - will deliver real-time bandwidth of 70 GHz, with significant upside potential. The new oscilloscope platform will deliver the performance and signal fidelity needed for applications such as 400 Gbps and 1 Tbps optical communications and fourth generation serial data communications.
Pronghorn Solutions, a low cost high performance instrument company announces the PHS – 5000 family of fast tuning USB controlled microwave frequency synthesizers.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, today announces RFP™, an innovative new frequency planning wizard within Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) that enables engineers to effortlessly and efficiently determine spurious free bandwidths when designing complex radio communications systems.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced a wideband frequency synthesizer with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) that delivers the industry’s lowest phase noise. Its combination of ultra-low noise phase-locked loop (PLL) and industry’s highest phase detector frequency outperforms the competition in both phase noise and spurs.
IQD’s new IQOV-150 series OCXO satisfies the growing demand for low phase noise reference clocks for ADC and DAC, especially for very fast measurements and high speed data transfer.
