7 Noteworthy Technologies From IMS2014
By Clinton Shaffer
At the 2014 IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium earlier this month, I had the opportunity to speak with the event’s general chair, Dr. Larry Dunleavy, about the state of the RF and microwave design industry. While he acknowledged that it is a time of relative uncertainty — due in large part to constrained military budgets and conservative fiscal forecasts for 2014 — he also pointed out that there are plenty of emerging markets where RF and microwave technology is making a significant impact.

X-COM's IQC5000A Series: The New Standard In Long-Duration RF Spectrum Recording, Storage, And Playback

X-COM’s IQC5000A Series: The New Standard In Long-Duration RF Spectrum Recording, Storage, And Playback

X-COM's revolutionary IQC5000A records, stores, and plays back two independent 160 MHz-wide channels of signal activity captured at any frequency with high fidelity. It operates in an enclosure measuring 12 by 3.5 by 10.5 inches and weighing 10 lbs. that can operate from commercial power in the lab or from a 12 V car battery in the field. So, whether your job is ELINT, SIGINT, EW, spectrum management, or wireless or radar system testing, the IQC5000A is an indispensable companion.
