With the proliferation of electronics in nearly every market sector, there is an increasing need for precision resistors. For markets such as medical instrumentation and control, industrial and automotive controls, communications, and test & measurement, these precision resistors must maintain electrical and environmental stability long term. Stackpole’s RNCF series of precision thin film resistors meet these […]
Satellites launch 4G/5G service to remote regions
The first two O3b mPOWER satellites operated by SES have launched. Once fully deployed, 11 satellites will significantly improve throughput and latency to areas all over the world. EE World was there for a firsthand video view of the launch.
How to increase SNR when testing at mmWave frequencies
Communication systems such as 5G that operate at today’s wide bandwidths and high orders of modulation need to maintain proper SNR and EMV. Path loss and phase noise can get in the way.
5G SoC pushes gaming, extends battery life
Mediatek’s Dimensity 8200 CPU/GPU/modem features eight CPU cores, six GPU cores, and LPDDR5 memory to boost gaming and video.
Connectors meet high-speed data transfer requirements using USB 3.1 (10Gb/s)
Thanks to the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more machines, vehicles, and objects are utilizing more sensors to communicate with one another and the outside world. It is increasingly important than ever to send data reliably in the shortest time possible. The new LEMO USB 3.1 connectors were designed to meet […]
SMA interconnects ensure reliability in extreme exposure environments
Amphenol RF expanded its line of extreme exposure RF interconnects with an additional SMA bulkhead jack. This connector is a waterproof, IP67-rated solution designed to terminate to flexible, low-loss LMR 400 cable. In addition to the standard features of this popular interface, this connector offers an extra layer of protection that guards against harsh external […]
100 Ω termination operates from DC to 4 GHz
BroadWave Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new 100 Ω termination. Model 592-394-001 is a DC – 4 GHz device with a 1-Watt average at 25°C power rating. Maximum VSWR is 1.25:1 and the operating temperature range is – 55°C to +100°C. The unit is 1.53 inches long from the connector, 0.50 inches diameter body with…
NIBC provides regulated 12.25-V output, includes PMBus interface
Advanced Energy Industries announced the company’s first non-isolated bus converter (NIBC) in industry-standard quarter-brick format for 48 V power conversion in compute and telecom applications. Operating at up to 900 W with efficiencies as high as 97%, the new Advanced Energy Artesyn NDQ900 DC/DC converter provides a single, regulated 12.25 V output and incorporates a […]
Solar array simulator for satellites mimics conditions in space
The new MP4300A Series Modular Solar Array Simulator (SAS) emulates the behavior of photovoltaic (PV) segments. The SAS solution simulates all conditions a craft or satellite will encounter in space with high fidelity. Launching solar-powered spacecraft or satellites is incredibly expensive, with little possibility of recovery or repair. These vehicles must have efficient and reliable […]
Single-pair Ethernet cables features push-pull latching connectors
As network requirements have changed over time, ethernet has consistently improved in terms of speed, security, and quality. As a result, it has emerged as the standard for wired connectivity in most industries, including IT, telecommunications, transportation, and defense.
