Cree | Wolfspeed introduced four, multi-stage GaN on SiC MMIC devices, extending its range of RF solutions for X-Band, pulsed and CW phased array applications, including marine, weather surveillance and emerging unmanned aerial system radars.
The RF Front-End Module Comparison 2021 – Vol. 1 – Focus on Apple report provides insights into technology and cost data for RF front-end modules and a selection of components found in 18 smartphones from the Apple iPhone since 2016.
SiTune announced two transceivers for 5G open RAN infrastructure hardware solutions — IceWings and SnowWings — which SiTune says are the first multi-standard, ultra-wideband transceivers differentiated by lower power consumption and lower cost than competing transceivers.
A Germany-based consortium of seven partners from industry and research is now offering an alternative solution to integrating sensor circuits on application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) via a research project for radar sensors for industrial and process measurement technology, titled "Glass interposer technology for highly compact electronic systems for high frequency applications" (GlaRA).
Sivers Semiconductors recently made two announcements: Pelle Wijk will be appointed managing director of Sivers Wireless in Sweden, and Sivers Photonics has received a new optical sensing order from a current Fortune 100 customer.
With the modern mobile device revolution, semiconductor suppliers are challenged to increase capability, integration, and performance while reducing time to market. Test needs a new approach based on an open, flexible platform at significantly lower cost. NI is bridging this gap by building on the stability and capability of the PXI platform to deliver off-the-shelf modular technology to both the characterization and production engineer.
