  1. Vishay Intertechnology Enhances PTN Series Precision Thin Film Chip Resistors
    10/29/2014

    Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. recently announced that it has enhanced its PTN series of precision surface-mount thin film chip resistors with a lower absolute TCR of ± 10 ppm/°C and tighter tolerances to ± 0.05 %.

  2. New Microwave Power Module Provides Switchable Ka/Q-Band Capability For UAV Data Links
    10/29/2014

    Now available from Link Microtek is a switchable Ka/Q-band microwave power module (MPM) that provides highly compact power-amplifier functionality for defence and aerospace applications where size and weight are key considerations.

  3. Cobham Wireless Introduces Fast Power Measurement Option On The PXI 3030 Series RF Digitizer
    10/29/2014

    Cobham Wireless, formerly Aeroflex wireless business unit, has announced the introduction of a new measurement option that allows users to perform power measurements more quickly, directly reducing test times in power servo applications.

  4. FCC Delays Airwaves Auction For Wireless Carriers To 2016
    10/28/2014

    Some of the most attractive frequencies traditionally used for television have been slated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for auction to wireless companies. The complexity of the initiative has led to delays in the sale of what some call the “beach front property” of the radio frequency spectrum.

  5. RF-Heated Magnetic Nanoparticles Could Improve Organ Cryopreservation
    10/28/2014

    Cryopreserving organs and masses of tissue has improved significantly, but the thawing of these organs has not. Now an approach using radio frequency (RF) and magnetic nanoparticles (mNPs) may allow uniform thawing that avoids the damage seen with heating before.

  6. HUBER+SUHNER: Significant Increase In Order Intake After Nine Months - HUBER+Rise In Net Sales In Organic Terms
    10/28/2014

    The positive momentum recorded in the first term continued in the third quarter as well. The latter proved to be the strongest period of 2014 with net sales of CHF 194 million (previous year CHF 175 million).

  7. Using Radio Waves To Control The Density In A Fusion Plasma
    10/28/2014

    Recent fusion experiments on the DIII-D tokamak at General Atomics (San Diego) and the Alcator C-Mod tokamak at MIT (Cambridge, Massachusetts), show that beaming microwaves into the center of the plasma can be used to control the density in the center of the plasma, where a fusion reactor would produce most of its power.

  8. Raytheon Griffin™C Flight Tests Demonstrate In-Flight Retargeting Capability
    10/28/2014

    Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) successfully completed flight tests of its Griffin™ C increased capability missile.

  9. DARPA Circuit Achieves Speeds Of 1 Trillion Cycles Per Second, Earns Guinness World Record
    10/28/2014

    Officials from Guinness World Records today recognized DARPA’s Terahertz Electronics program for creating the fastest solid-state amplifier integrated circuit ever measured. The ten-stage common-source amplifier operates at a speed of one terahertz (1012 GHz), or one trillion cycles per second—150 billion cycles faster than the existing world record of 850 gigahertz set in 2012.

  10. New IDT Mixer Lowers Distortion, Cuts Power Consumption Up To 30%
    10/27/2014

    Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) recently introduced a new low-distortion, low-power radio frequency (RF) mixer, delivering RF technology that reduces distortion in LTE and TDD systems while minimizing power consumption.
