IMS Preview Continued
StratEdge will introduce a new family of high power laminate packages at IMS2012. The LL family of leaded laminate copper-moly-copper (CMC) base packages dissipates heat from high power compound semiconductor devices, such as gallium nitride (GaN), gallium arsenide (GaAs), and silicon carbide (SiC). These packages handle applications through 6 GHz for use in RF radios for communications, radar, and high power millimeter-wave signals. They come in flange and flangeless versions so can either be bolted down or soldered to the package. www.stratedge.com
At this year’s IMS2012, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) will be showcasing its portfolio of RF ICs, data converters, PLLs, reference designs and a variety of design resources for radio based systems. ADI will be highlighting high performance RF ICs and world-leading data converters that cover bits to antenna and back. ADI executives will be on hand to demonstrate how designers can source a range of general purpose and specialized RF ICs and data converters from a single supplier for solutions in both the transmit and receive paths of the entire RF signal chain.
ADI’s booth will spotlight complete system solutions and demos of new offerings, including RF/IF amplifiers, frequency synthesizers and data converters, including the industry first ADL5324 half-Watt RF driver amplifier with dynamically adjustable bias and extended temperature range for wired and wireless applications. In addition, ADI will demo the ADRF660x series of mixers and ADRF670x series of modulators, which achieve a breakthrough level of integration, enabling LTE and 4G base station manufacturers to realize an unprecedented 60 percent reduction in board space and a significant savings on bill of materials costs. ADI will also have on display a wide range of free design tools, evaluation boards and other design resources to ease the development of RF systems.

At the symposium, Richardson RFPD will host 15-minute presentations and Q&A sessions, featuring innovators and suppliers of RF, wireless and energy technologies. The presentations will range from trends in high-efficiency devices and next-generation electronic warfare, to topics like femtocells and picocells. See the schedule below (which will also be available in attendee bags):
Visitors to the Richardson RFPD booth #1818 may register to win a GoPro Helmet HERO, the world's highest performance, wearable 1080p HD video and still photo camera. You can follow daily Twitter coverage @Richardson_RFPD
will showcase its latest UltraCMOS® RFIC products, including its DuNE™ Digitally Tunable Capacitors (DTCs), which enable frequency-agile tunable networks and improved wireless communication for a wide variety of applications. Join the Peregrine team during in-booth training sessions to learn about the latest products and design tips.
Cadence will showcase its latest solutions for high-performance/accurate RF simulation and full-spectrum noise analysis. See how to speed-up your RF simulation runtime—from weeks and days to hours and minutes—and how to achieve accurate results using Cadence Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator RF. Don’t miss the workshop on "Advances in Noise Analysis for RF Circuits,” where Cadence and other experts from different domains—RF circuit designers, researchers and academics, and noise-analysis tool providers—will present their practical experiences, discoveries, methodologies, and solutions used to analyze and minimize noise for RF-IC designs.
A.T. Wall Company will be showcasing a range of precision-drawn, high-quality waveguide tubing. The majority of the company’s waveguide is made in the United States, and is shipped with a quality assurance certification, ensuring 100 percent raw material traceability and full chemical certification.
Industry veteran Matthew Underhay, newly appointed sales manager for A.T. Wall, will be on hand to meet with customers and discuss how the company’s waveguide tubing meets the needs of RF and microwave engineers.
ANADIGICS, Inc. plans to showcase several new high performance products at the event, including LTE power amplifiers optimized for 3G and 4G operation over both high and low output power levels, as well as new small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers.
Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for broadband RF products at ANADIGICS, will be presenting at the Richardson RFPD Booth 1818, at 3:00pm on Wednesday, June 20, 2012. The presentation will focus on small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers.
will be showcasing a new RF development kit that includes all the hardware and software needed for RF transmit, receive and digital pre-distortion feedback, reducing the amount of time needed to design and verify RF systems, such as wireless base stations, remote radio heads, and military radio and intelligence equipment, from months to weeks. The company will also demonstrate the FMC30RF software defined radio (SDR) development board. Designed to offer up to 30 MHz of RF bandwidth between 400 MHz and 3 GHz, the VITA-complaint FMC module pairs with Xilinx FGPA development kits to provide a quick and simple SDR or small cell development and reference design platform.
