Observations of two galaxies made with the National Science Foundation-funded Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) radio telescope suggest that large galaxies formed faster than scientists had previously thought.
The United States Government Accountability Office (U.S. GAO) urges the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to monitor the increasing number of high bandwidth and unlicensed-spectrum devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). GAO says this would give FCC a leg up in ensuring adequate radio frequency (RF) spectrum is available for all stakeholders.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is picking up the pace in its drive to meet 5G usage in the United States by making available an additional 1.7 GHz of high-frequency spectrum, which will facilitate carriers’ plans to deploy next-generation mobile broadband services by 2020.
Verizon plans to launch the first wireless residential 5G broadband services in three to five United States markets in 2018. The commercial launch follows 5G trials in the U.S. in the past year conducted in collaboration with telecom equipment makers, including Ericsson and Nokia, which are accelerating 5G trials globally.
Bird Technologies offers an active Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that delivers all different technologies, bands, and services over a single strand of fiber, with excellent uplink network performance that is perfect for tunnel environments.
Until recently, the benefits of GaN technology beyond usage in amplification have not been pursued. Custom MMIC has recently been working with domestic foundries to investigate the use of GaN for passive mixers. The resulting discovery was that the high-linearity properties of GaN amplifiers also translated to mixers. This application note discusses the results of studies on new levels of linearity from GaN technology within different types of passive mixers.
This white paper covers the different types of Anaren cased and caseless hybrid couplers, as well as their typical operating characteristics, and equations for each specification.
The process of evaluating the performance of ultra-low-phase noise oscillators requires phase noise test systems with lower measurement times, lower noise floor capabilities, and high reliability and repeatability of test data.
Radar warning receivers (RWR) and electronic support measures (ESM) require signal validation against realistic and agile radar scenarios. In the past, these complex scenarios have only been available with dedicated and highly integrated radar scenario simulators. Now, the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator has been designed with the capabilities to take on the role. The instrument can generate the most modern I/Q modulated radar signals from streamed pulse descriptor words (PDW) received via LAN.
dB Control offers a new dB-4150 smart microwave power module (MPM) consisting of a solid state amplifier and a vacuum power booster. It is designed to provide 100 Watts pulsed/CW RF output power, and operate in the 6 to 18 GHz frequency range.
This video offers an introductory tutorial and example of how to bias GaN transistors.
NuWaves introduces the Multi-Octave Radio Frequency (MORF) Up-Converters covering the HF, VHF, and UHF bands, as well as the L- and S-bands. Ideal applications include frequency conversion, signal generation, and system integration.
NuWaves introduces the High Intercept Low Noise Amplifier (HILNA) series of amplifiers ideally designed for applications requiring low noise and high linearity.
This video introduces the many different engineering services that NuWaves has to offer, including RF telemetry, RF stealth and signal exploitation, RF systems and subsystems, as well as research and development.
The Convertawave 2 is an RF downconverter designed to be tuned across the 200 MHz to 2.5 GHz frequency range. It can intercept signals in the VHF, UHF, L-band, and S-band, providing a filtered IF frequency output of 70 MHz.

Fresh off a network deal with Verizon, Ericsson clinched another one this week, inking a five-year agreement with Deutsche Telekom to upgrade the German carrier's mobile network to become 5G-ready. Ericsson will provide multi-standard radio access network (RAN) using its Baseband 6630 product and radios, along with hardware and software support.
Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, has launched a new series of waveguide to coax adapters that cover a frequency range of 1.7 GHz to 110 GHz in 22 waveguide bands.
Internet of Things Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ITT) (OTC: INOTF) (FRANKFURT:71T) (“ITT Inc.” or “the Company”) a software and solutions provider to the Internet of Things (the “IoT”) market, announces the formation of a new subsidiary, Blockchain of Things Inc. (“Blockchain of Things”)
No visit to the doctor’s office is complete without a blood-pressure cuff squeezing your arm and a cold stethoscope placed on your chest. But what if your vital signs could be gathered, without contact, as you sit in the waiting room or the comfort of your own home?
The DARPA Bay Area Software Defined Radio (SDR) Hackfest came to a close on Friday, November 17 at the NASA Ames Conference Center in Moffett Field, CA. During the weeklong event, over 150 members of the SDR community came together to discuss, innovate, and ideate around the future of software radio technology and its potential to address challenging communications issues that are emerging due to the increasingly congested electromagnetic (EM) spectrum and the proliferation of wireless-enabled devices.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today a family of jitter attenuators and clock synthesizers that deliver industry-leading phase noise performance for 40G/100G/400G Ethernet timing applications.
