Today, MILCOM 2011 kicked off in Baltimore, MD and the show promises to celebrate its 30th anniversary in style. If you are on site, please hit the comments section below to let us know what you think.
In the meantime, here are some RF/microwave highlights for you:
Analog Devices, Booth 1304 is featuring wideband receivers, RF DACs, MEMS inertial sensors, and high-performance RFICs.
Agilent Technologies, Booth 1201 is featuring custom waveform genration and analysis, handheld test tools (including spectrum analyzers and RF analyzers), and PXI-based wide band instruments. For more info, head here.
M/A COM is in booth 1708 and is featuring GaN on silicon carbide transistors, pallet amplifiers, surface-mount VCOs, tech modules and pallets for pulsed applications or CW, SPDT switches, and a 250V PIN diode driver.
If your company is at the show, tell us in the comments what to look for in your booth.
I love Bluetooth. Little did I know, seventeen years ago when I was assigned my first project to write about the origins of Bluetooth and the viking that inspired the name that it would bring so much joy and convenience to my life
The main point of this blog is to point out that there is a major shift in LDMOS technology for cellular applications and the device operating voltage is changing from the current 28V range up into the 48V region.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
