The latest release of NI AWR Design Environment, V13, will be on display at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2017, being held
in Shanghai, China on April 25-27. In addition to software demonstrations within NI Booth #311, the NI AWR software product portfolio will be featured in one 40-minute workshop and two 20-minute technical sessions. NI AWR software activities during EDI CON include:
Capturing radio signals that are already in the air, then adding data and reflecting the combination back to passersby’s smartphones is how marketing and smart city communications should take place in the future, say researchers.
By doing so, one can use everyday objects as radio stations, say scientists from University of Washington. A kind of smart-poster would be one use for the technology, they say.
Bus stop billboards, for example, would be able to broadcast a message to be picked up by a transit customer’s FM radio already built into their smartphone. The “singing poster,” as they call it, wouldn’t need to be powered with any great oomph—the radio signal reflective technology consumes “close to zero power,” the researchers claim in an article on the university’s website.
Telewave, Inc. introduced the M108-150-XTP-M Series transmitter combiners that deliver very high isolation, low loss and high RF power handling capability for use in public safety and land mobile radio applications operating between 148 to 174 MHz.
Pure-play foundry TowerJazz has announced a silicon photonic process (SiPho) developed for optical networking applications. The process includes several versions of single-mode silicon waveguides, high speed germanium photodetectors, p-n junction modulators and compatibility with edge and grating couplers.
Pentek, Inc. introduced the newest member of the Jade™ family of data converter XMC modules. The Model 71851 is based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA and features two 500 MHz, 12-bit A/Ds with multiband digital down converters (DDCs), one digital upconverter (DUC) and two 800 MHz 16-bit D/As.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) announced the appointment of Chris Allexandre as its new senior vice president of global sales and marketing. A sales veteran with more than 20 years in the semiconductor industry, Allexandre’s experience covers analog mixed signal products in the mobile, industrial, telecom, cloud, consumer and automotive markets.
The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) in partnership with the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) announced their collaboration on a special 5G Summit to be held June 5-6, 2017.
Ericsson and SoftBank Corp. will evaluate the performance of 28 GHz links, indoor and outdoor, stationary and mobile. The trials will test the performance of massive MIMO, massive beamforming, distributed MIMO, multi-user MIMO and beam tracking and how each supports the requirements of 5G.
