Frequency-Extension Modules Address Growing Needs in Millimeter-Wave Communications, Wireless Networks, and Aerospace/DefenseSeptember 11, 2013 1:25 pm | by WDD Staff | Product Releases | Comments
Agilent Technologies this week introduced a line of frequency-extension modules from Virginia Diodes Inc. (VDI), a company that designs, manufactures, and sells millimeter-wave and terahertz devices, components, and systems, for its signal generators and analyzers.
For the first time since introducing the device that has reshaped technology and culture, Apple will offer two distinct versions of its latest iPhones — a cheaper model made of colorful plastic and another one that aims to be "the gold standard of smartphones" with a faster processor, fancier camera, and fingerprint scanner for better security.
One of the best things about Apple's latest iPhones is the slick new iOS 7 software that runs the devices. But that souped-up operating system could end up hurting sales because the free software upgrade will also work on iPhones released since 2010, giving owners of the older models less incentive to buy Apple's newest products.
Expanding upon the last update to Elektor’s Android App, Faust Nijhuis has designed an additional twelve calculation and conversion utensils for RF, Microwave, and electronics in general, bringing the total number of tools to 55.
Gov. Rick Perry and top executives are attending the opening of a Fort Worth plant where cellphone pioneer Motorola will produce the first smartphone ever assembled in the U.S. Motorola is owned by Google, whose Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt, will be on-hand Tuesday, as will Motorola CEO.
Apple's much-anticipated update to its line-up of iPhones may leave the impression that the technology pioneer's focus has shifted to making more affordable products than engineering innovative breakthroughs. In keeping with its tight-lipped ways, Apple hasn't disclosed what's on the agenda for the coming-out party scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. PDT Tuesday at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.
Commercial uses for ultraviolet (UV) light are growing, and now a new kind of LED under development at The Ohio State University could lead to more portable and low-cost uses of the technology. The patent-pending LED creates a more precise wavelength of UV light than today’s commercially available UV LEDs, and runs at much lower voltages and is more compact than other experimental methods for creating precise wavelength UV light.
SpaceX is exploring methods for engineers to accelerate their workflow by designing more directly in 3D. They are integrating breakthroughs in sensor and visualization technologies to view and modify designs more naturally and efficiently than we could using purely 2D tools.
Saelig Company has introduced new Warrior Modules containing the complete electronics required for joystick, mouse or I/O functionality via USB. Based on the successful Warrior USB-interface ICs, these new boards accept analog inputs in the range of 0 to 5 V, are compatible with most joystick sensors.
The majority of new LTE platforms being released to the market have digital MIPI RFFE interface, which controls radio frequency front-end (RFFE) components, either from an application processor or baseband. One front-end component is a power management device for power amplifiers. There are two types of power management solutions for power amplifiers.
This week on WDD’s HotSpot, brought to you by National Instruments, Linear Technology’s LTC5551 ultra-high, dynamic range RF down converting mixer; a wristband, which uses the unique cardiac rhythm of consumers to authenticate their identity; a thin, wireless touch interface; and an inflatable antenna.
Looking to force Apple to obey antitrust laws, a judge on Friday ordered the technology giant to modify contracts with publishers to prevent electronic book price fixing and said she will appoint an external compliance monitor to review the company's antitrust policies and training.
Google has submitted new proposals to address concerns by Europe's antitrust watchdog that the U.S. internet giant is stifling competition, the European Commission said Monday. The new concessions offered by Google come two months after the Commission, which acts as the 28-bloc's antitrust authority, rejected the company's initial proposals as insufficient.
The expansion beyond Windows 8 devices and Xbox game consoles starting Monday is intended to bring new customers into the software giant's ecosystem of devices and services and could help it compete with other digital music offerings like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes. It's also an acknowledgement that the music service hasn't done much to drive sales of the Windows 8 operating system.
Koch Industries is buying electronic components and cables maker Molex for approximately $6.86 billion. Koch — run by the billionaire brothers Charles and David — said Monday that it will pay $38.50 per Molex Inc. share. That's a 31 percent premium to the company's common stock price of $29.34 on Friday.
The inherent insecurity of many medical devices was highlighted in a recent FDA and Homeland Security alert. Over 300 devices have been identified that utilize a hard code password, creating a huge security loophole. With so many medical devices now collecting and storing patient data, this raises the question of how secure is the data stored on these devices?
The NBA has partnered with STATS on the SportVU cameras, and the relationship has grown from a single arena during the 2009 NBA Finals into a league-wide initiative that will be up and ready for the start of this season. The technology can monitor every move a player makes on the court, gauge how tired he is and can even keep an eye on the job referees are doing.
Vikas Berry, William H. Honstead professor of chemical engineering, and his research team have studied a new three-atom-thick material -- molybdenum disulfide -- and found that manipulating it with gold atoms improves its electrical characteristics. Their research appears in a recent issue of Nano Letters.
AudioCodes has announced a cooperation with Gigaset Communications GmbH, a European market leader. The AudioCodes SIP Phone Support (SPS) software, which enhances AudioCodes Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC) and Gateways, connects the GigaSet pro N720 IP DECT Multicell System to Lync servers
This week on Engineering Newswire, brought to you by Interpower Corporation, the premier supplier for power system components with a one week manufacturing lead-time and over 4 million parts in stock, we’re working out with RoboSimian, exploring the deepest place on earth, saving brains, and we’re locked and loaded with a semi-automatic needle gun.
In an effort to provide remote monitoring solutions to doctors so they can be more sufficient while minimizing costs and the consequences that come with waiting until it is too late, San Francisco-based Qardio has introduced the QardioArm and QardioCore wearable monitoring devices.
The so-called driverless Cadillac SRX was designed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers who have been working on the project since 2008. The car uses inputs from radars, laser rangefinders, and infrared cameras to maneuver in traffic. Shuster is the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and he was accompanied by Barry Schoch, secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
Sony Mobile unveiled a new addition to its Xperia smartphone lineup Wednesday: a device that sports a massive 20.7-megapixel camera and is capable of attaching better lenses. The Xperia Z1, presented in Berlin two days before the annual IFA consumer electronics show there, is Sony's attempt to leapfrog rivals such as Nokia and Samsung in the race for the phone with the best camera.
Nearly 70 years after Dick Tracy began wearing a two-way wrist radio in the funny pages, the technology that once seemed impossibly futuristic will be widely available by Christmas. Samsung on Wednesday introduced a digital watch for the holiday season that will let users check messages with a glance at their wrists and have conversations secret agent-style.
