Intel Corporations’ Intel Labs Vice President and Director of Integrated Computing Research (ICR) Dr. Vida Ilderem will serve as plenary session speaker on Monday, June 2, 2014 at the IEEE MTT-S 2014 International Microwave Symposium (IMS), marking the first female plenary speaker in the history of IMS.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new Broadband Sub-Harmonic Pumped Mixer for cost sensitive applications covering the 14-32 GHz frequency range and IF frequencies from DC-7 GHz.
United Monolithic Semiconductors (UMS) announced the frequency band of the CHA3801-QDG LNA has been increased from 1.25 to 1.75GHz to 1 to 2GHz.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) introduced a family of 12-bit, 500- to 900-MSPS analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that reduce board space by 80 percent while providing industry-leading signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR).
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that an increasing number of its products are enabling telematics and infotainment systems in the automotive market. Telematics is the term used to describe the integrated use of computers and electronic technology in automobiles for wireless communication applications such as cell phones, the Internet and GPS receivers.
AVX Corp. announced its new low-profile 0603 diplexer at the International Microwave Symposium in Seattle, WA. Based on the company’s patented multilayer organic high density interconnect technology, the new 0603 MLO™ diplexer employs high dielectric constant and low loss materials to realize high Q passive printed elements, such as inductors and capacitors in a multilayer stack up.
OMMIC announced the release of a new 200 GHz Fmax 30 V, 100 nm GaN/Si microwave and millimiter-wave MMIC process for application up to 100 GHz. This process is, for the time being, only open on a collaborative basis. Multi Chip Projects runs will soon be announced and the PDK will be available by the end of June 2013.
Phase Matrix released its latest member of the QuickSyn® line of microwave frequency synthesizers. The new compact model FSL-0010 covers the frequency range of 0.65 to 10 GHz and employs QuickSyn® Phase-Refining Technology, which means it exhibits instrument-grade spectral purity and fast switching speed, efficiently consumes power, is small in size, and is available at a low cost.
