Cellular IoT and Short Range Wireless Tech is Helping Farmers, Fleet Managers and Consumers Monitor Tank Levels to Prevent Disruptive Shortages

by Nordic Semiconductor Europe’s largest farm is an arable holding in Romania which at 570 square kilometers is roughly the same size as Singapore. Impressive certainly, but there’s big and then there’s enormous. The five largest farms in the world are located in China and Australia and between them cover 190,000 square kilometers, dwarfing their […]

New Rohde & Schwarz Test System for Automotive Radar Sensors Electronically Simulates Even Laterally Moving Objects

The new R&S RTS radar test system from Rohde & Schwarz simulates driving scenarios for testing radar based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and radar sensors used in autonomously driving cars (AD) entirely over the air. The test solution consists of the new R&S AREG800A automotive radar echo generator as a backend and the R&S […]

Specifications include maximum insertion loss of 0.7 dB, maximum VSWR of 2.0:1, input power of 4W CW minimum, 1 kW peak (1% duty cycle, 1 µs maximum pulse width), and maximum flat leakage of 16 dBm (40 mW) maximum. PLANAR […]

Tiny LTCC Filters

The BFCQ series of low-temperature-cofired-ceramic (LTCC) bandpass filters includes four models for isolating 5G cellular wireless passbands n257, n258, and n260. They measure only 2.5 x 2.0mm and are surface mountable, but handle as much as 1W input power. The compact filters handle operating temperatures from -55 to +125°C. MINI-CIRCUITS (22)

Q/V-Band Phased Array Antennas

A new phased-array user terminal has been specifically designed for operation in the higher millimeterWave frequency bands for evolving next-generation communication satellites. The new low-profile antenna will operate in the Q- and V-band frequencies, designated for adoption by satellite operators in LEO, MEO, GEO, and HEO. THINKOM SOLUTIONS (29)
