  1. Toshiba Unveils SOI Process Achieving The Lowest-Class Insertion Loss In The Industry For RF Switches In Smartphones

    Toshiba Corporation’s Semiconductor & Storage Products Company recently announced the development of “TaRF8”, a next generation TarfSOI (Toshiba advanced RF SOI) process optimized for radio-frequency (RF) switch applications that achieves the lowest-class of insertion loss in the industry.

  2. Anokiwave Introduces Low Noise Figure X-Band AESA Core IC Solution

    Anokiwave recently introduced the second IC in a family of X-band Silicon Radar Quad Core IC solutions for commercial radar and 5G communications markets. It supports 4 radiating elements with dual beam Rx, single beam Tx, and includes 6-bit phase and 6-bit gain control.

  3. New Solid-State High-Power Amplifier Helps To Counter Threat Of IEDs

    The latest addition to the MtronPTI range of solid-state high-power amplifiers is the compact PA1029 module, which delivers a microwave power output of 50W over frequencies from 2.2 to 6GHz, making it ideal for use in vehicle-mounted counter-IED jamming systems.

  4. AR Modular RF To Display Communication Innovations For Military, Police And Anti-Terrorism Forces At Securetech 2015

    Troops in combat or on sensitive missions need to maintain reliable communication via radio and mobile devices. However, the physical conditions in which they operate often make this extremely difficult.

  5. Cool, Dim Dwarf Star Is Magnetic Powerhouse

    Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have discovered that a dim, cool dwarf star is generating a surprisingly powerful magnetic field, one that rivals the most intense magnetic regions of our own Sun.

  6. NASA’s STEREO-A Resumes Normal Operations

    On Nov. 9, 2015, NASA’s Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory Ahead, or STEREO-A, once again began transmitting data at its full rate. For the previous year, STEREO-A was transmitting only a weak signal—or occasionally none at all—due to its position almost directly behind the sun.

  7. Popular Science Names ‘Power Over Wi-Fi’ One Of The Year’s Game-Changing Technologies

    University of Washington engineers have developed a novel technology that uses a Wi-Fi router — a source of ubiquitous but untapped energy in indoor environments — to power devices.

  8. ITU World Radiocommunication Conference Approves Spectrum For Automotive Radar

    Radio-frequency spectrum needed for the operation of short-range high-resolution automotive radar has been allocated in the 79 GHz frequency band. This decision was reached at the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15) currently meeting in Geneva from 2 to 27 November.

  9. Ultra-Thin, Tunable, Broadband Microwave Absorber May Advance Radar Cloaking

    Microwave absorbers are a kind of material that can effectively absorb incident microwave energy to make objects invisible to radar; therefore they are commonly used in aircraft cloaking and warship stealth. By Zhengzheng Zhang
