As a result of numerous orders corresponding with the growth of terahertz frequency range measurements in the wafer test market, MPI Corp. has received industry wide acceptance of the TS150-THZ probe station as the standard for these complicated high frequency measurements. The TS150-THZ addresses the challenging test requirements of multiple emerging markets and applications, such as automotive radar, non-invasive imaging, defense, security and surveillance as well as short-range radar and high-speed 5G communication.
Nearly 10,000 attendees flocked to the IEEE MTT-S 2016 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) May 22-27, marking a 32 percent increase in show attendance since 2013 and validating IMS as an essential event for the wireless industry. Tradeshow News Network (TSNN) recently named IMS one of the 25 Fastest Growing Shows based on attendance. The six-day event, held in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, drew nearly 3,000 attendees to the technical program and featured a record-breaking 625 companies on the sold-out show floor.
Noisecom, a Wireless Telecom Group company, announced a new CNG-EbNo programmable precision carrier-to-noise (C/N) generator with an integrated spectrum analyzer designed for communication systems data streams that include multiple carriers in the frequency band.
As the 200 mm wafer test market continues to expand, MPI Corp. is introducing a new fully automatic wafer probe system. The TS2500-RF addresses multiple production test market requirements which include radio frequency (RF) communication devices and discrete passive components.
ASELSAN, a Turkish company with 40 years experience in defense electronics, is designing and developing 94 GHz, phased array and scalable SiGe integrated circuits that will be used as transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) modules in civil radar systems.
Over 600 companies exhibited, from 3D Glass Solutions to Zik and all the companies that have anchored IMS for years. It was impossible for Microwave Journal to visit each of the firms that filled Moscone Center, but we did our best. The following summarizes what we saw and learned during the three very hectic days of the exhibition.
Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces the new PEM009-KIT 60 GHz development system which offers designers the ability to perform product development and experimentation of single and multi-carrier high bandwidth modulation covering 57 to 64 GHz in the globally unlicensed ISM frequency spectrum.
Qorvo®, a provider of technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications, announced, in conjunction with NanoSemi, a developer of digital linearization and compensation algorithms, that it has demonstrated industry-leading ultra-wideband linearization results with its GaN power amplifiers for wireless infrastructure.
