Microsemi Corp., a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, announced significant enhancements to its Integrated Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Master (IGM) software, expanding capabilities and key features in its new version 2 (v2). The company’s IGM product portfolio enables coverage and capacity at the very edge of mobile networks to serve mobile operators preparing for 5G through densification as well as enterprises seeking enhanced indoor capacity and coverage on LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) networks.
The latest TCXO design launched by IQD delivers two new models housed in ultra-miniature 1.6 mm x 1.2 mm x 0.45 mm hermetically sealed ceramic packages that are amongst the smallest available on the market. The IQXT-350 series is a standard TCXO (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) whilst the IQXT-351 series version offers full VCTCXO (Voltage Controlled Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) functionality.
Smiths Microwave Subsystems is pleased to announce that TRAK has released the 8836 series tactical GPS Time and Frequency System. The design approach integrates a ground-based GPS receiver module (GB-GRAM), a rubidium oscillator, time and frequency signal generation, and control/status circuitry in a compact, ruggedized enclosure.
IZT GmbH expands its powerful RF receiver family introducing the IZT R5000. The next generation of high performance receivers combines up to 100 MHz instantaneous bandwidth with the proven excellent RF performance of the legacy IZT receivers. The R5000 covers the frequency range between 9 kHz and 18 GHz.
Mercury Systems Inc. announced it received a $2.4 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for high-performance GPS Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Modules (SAASM) for a precision guided munitions application.
GPS personal tracking device shipments will more than double by 2021 with a 21 percent CAGR as the industry shifts away from traditional markets, such as family and pet locator devices. ABI Research predicts that non-traditional markets including elderly/health, corporate, and personal asset tracking will embrace ubiquitous indoor and outdoor location technology.
New technologies on display at IMS2016 will include ETL’s range of products for Global Positioning System (GPS) and the broader Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) applications. The new range includes outdoor and indoor GPS over Fibre and GPS Splitter units, which provide a reliable method for distributing GPS timing signals from a single antenna.
RF co-site interference has become a major issue with the proliferation of antennas, particularly in dense urban areas. This paper offers a practical perspective for those using or specifying new RF wireless systems about what RF co-site interference is, where it comes from, and some of the most common techniques and tools that are available in today’s market to solve these RF co-site interference problems.
