Ultra low power (ULP) RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA announces S110 SoftDevice v7.0, the next major release of its Bluetooth® low energy stack, for the nRF51822 Bluetooth low energy and 2.4GHz proprietary System-on-Chip (SoC) and the nRF51422 ANT™ and ANT/Bluetooth low energy multiprotocol SoCs.
University of Rome graduate class uses Microwave Office to design a UWB impulse radar system for breath-activity monitoring
Sapienza University of Rome Professor Stefano Pisa supervised a graduate research project that used AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software to model, analyze, and design ultra wideband (UWB) radars for the novel use of remotely monitoring breath activity.
Remcom announces a new version of Wireless InSite®, its electromagnetic propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems. This version, Release 2.7.1, offers integration with the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL), improving import processing and significantly expanding supported file formats.
Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) announces a series of webinars to accompany the release of the 2014 version of CST STUDIO SUITE. The webinars will demonstrate the new features and tools available and their application to the areas of microwaves, RF and optical, EDA and EMC/EMI and low frequency simulations.
Mentor Graphics launches new Xpedition platform to optimize advanced PCB systems design productivity
Mentor Graphics Corp. announced the first phase of a new systems design enterprise platform to address today’s printed circuit board (PCB) systems challenges of increased complexity, changing team demographics, and systems-aware design requirements. The Mentor Graphics Xpedition™ platform significantly simplifies and accelerates the development of the industry’s most challenging designs. By combining an intuitive design environment with designer-driven automation, the Xpedition platform addresses the changing responsibilities of designers, including global team-based organizations, so that users can perform at expert levels for optimum productivity. The result is shortened product development cycles, minimized design re-spins, and improved product quality. The first phase of the launch announces new Xpedition PCB layout technology.
Rohde & Schwarz will release the R&S EMC32-K35 option for its R&S EMC32 EMC test software when the CISPR 35 EMC standard for multimedia equipment is adopted this spring.
Ranging from mid-March to mid-June, interesting and informative webinars have been assembled. Diverse area of topics will be covered. The webinars will be presented by our knowledgeable team of engineers at FEKO and hosted through 'GoToWebinar'.Read More
