Antenova, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna
modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, is to show a
development kit for a
certified Cat4/LTE design at CES2019. LTE Category 4 (Cat4) is the next step in 4G
LTE device capability. A Cat4 device uses two antennas - a main antenna for transmit
and receive, and a second antenna for receive only. The two antennas radiate in different
pattern directions which means they will always provide a good signal in any orientation,
as the unit is moved around or turned. The kit gives designers a short cut to a successful
Cat4 design and certifications, which can otherwise be difficult to achieve ...

Axiom Test Equipment, a premier provider of electronic
test and measurement equipment rentals and sales, has a new blog post you might find
useful titled, "Put a Charge into Your Battery Testing." Batteries provide power
for portable electronic devices. They come in many shapes and sizes, from tiny cells
that power pocket-sized personal electronic devices to large, fixed systems. They are
also available in different chemistries, such as alkaline, lead-acid, and lithium-ion
cells. Each battery chemistry results in battery cells with different voltages, such
as 1.5 V for alkaline cells, 2.0 V for lead-acid cells, and 3.0 V for lithium cells.
Commercial batteries are typically comprised of multiple connected cells to achieve higher
voltages, such as 12 or 24 V. Batteries are obviously essential components in any portable

Free for your downloading pleasure is Rohde &
Schwarz's white paper titled, "An Introduction to EMC Amplifiers." "In order to perform immunity
testing on an electronic device, we must subject that device to defined levels of radio
frequency energy over a wide range of frequencies and verify that the device continues
to function properly. This radio frequency energy may be conducted into a device via
its attached cables or be directly picked up 'over - the - air,' i.e. from radiated signals.
As we will see, radiated emissions represent the greater challenge in immunity testing.
The first reason for this is that radiated immunity (or susceptibility) testing often
requires the creation of very high electric field strengths , with typical values ranging
from 3-200 V/m. Depending on frequency, distance ..."

Triad RF Systems, a top-tier designer and manufacturer
of RF and microwave amplifiers, announces the introduction of their
TTRM1210 bi-directional amplifier, a wideband GaN Bi-Directional
Amplifier (BDA) that operates from 30 MHz to 2700 MHz and produces over 8 W
of transmit power. The receive side has over 20 dB of gain to overcome losses between
the antenna and the radio. The noise figure is 2 dB which makes the BDA practically
invisible to the system. Switching between transmit and receive can be done either automatically
when RF is sensed at the radio port, or manually switched by the radio or user. One of
the smallest BDAs in the industry measuring only 3.25 x 2.12 x 0.53 inches, this feature
rich BDA is also one of the most efficient. While producing 8 W of RF power ...
