A low-profile, log periodic monopole array antenna achieves a wide impedance bandwidth of 1.5 to 6.8 GHz.
Power Demands Put the Pressure on Packaging
Higher power densities and frequencies are pushing packages to their limits, while emerging wireless applications such as IoT and 5G crave lower-cost housings.
Development System Explores 60-GHz Spectrum
A development kit includes a WR-15 waveguide transmitter and receiver for forming short-range links at 60 GHz.
Amplifier Modules Boost 1 to 3 GHz
A high-power amplifier for use from 1 to 3 GHz includes an IoT interface for remote control and monitoring.
Measuring the Latest 5G Signal Waveforms
A test bed helps to create and evaluate different waveforms for possible use in future 5G wireless communications networks.
Software Aids Antenna Integration
Two software programs simulate the behavior of different antennas when mounted in a target system or operating environment.
Radio IC Paves Way for Emerging Wireless Designs
The AD9371 transceiver IC includes multiple transmitters and receivers for broadband communications from 300 to 6000 MHz.
Cable Assemblies Extend Past 60 GHz
On display at the IMS 2016 at Booth No. 1547 will be a new vector network analyzer (VNA) cable assembly with low-loss performance through the millimeter-wave range.
GaN Avionics Transistor Delivers 1200 W at L-Band
Based on GaN-on-SiC semiconductor technology, the Class AB high electron mobility transistor is capable of 1200 W output power and 17 dB gain from 1030 to 1090 MHz. See it at IMS Exhibition Booth 850.
