AWR and Optenni recently teamed on AWR Connected for Optenni Lab. The new workflow helps antenna designers to easily use best-of-class tools for the design and analysis of matching circuits. The integrated workflow with AWR Microwave Office is implemented in Optenni Lab version 1.4 SP3, which is available now.
Newark element14 and Fluke will hold a free webinar next week. The webcast will provide an overview of the latest DMM technology for use in maintenance and manufacturing applications. The online seminar will take place on Wednesday, October 24th. The title of the webinar is Latest in Wireless Technology in DMMs.
EVE introduced the e-zTest MIPI CSI-2 and e-zTest MIPI DSI validation platforms. The new application-specific debug solutions support the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Alliance wireless standards for Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) and Display Serial Interface (DSI). The two new wireless system-on-chip (SoC) validation platforms are the first commercial synthesizable virtual components for SoC emulation that meet MIPI standards. The EVE platforms are available now.
Rigol Technologies launched their DSA815 spectrum analyzer. The DSA815 features all-digital IF technology, highly precise amplitude readings, frequency range of 9kHz to 1.5 GHz, compact design and easy-to-use interface. The DSA815 is easy to use and highly reliable. The Rigol DSA815 spectrum analyzer is available now. Prices start at $1,295. It is ideal for demanding benchtop or field applications in RF and wireless testing and production.
Ambarella introduced their wireless camera developer’s kit for designing cameras that combine still photography and full HD video with wireless video streaming to smartphones. The Ambarella Wireless Camera Developer’s Kit enables users to capture their experiences with a high-quality, dedicated camera while utilizing their smartphone’s network connectivity for instant sharing and personal broadcasting.
The iDigi Telehealth Application Kit, from Digi International, is a development kit that helps developers create cloud-connected medical devices. The kit makes it easy to create cloud-connected medical devices to improve quality of care. Through the iDigi Device Cloud, doctor’s can easily access and analyze patient data, set up alarms and alerts and store information. The iDigi Telehealth Application Kit will be available in January 2012 for $499.
AWR has a new application note that explains how EDA tool integration benefits designers of circuits for 3G and 4G wireless systems. The app note describes the benefits of using AWR’s Microwave Office and Visual System Simulator (VSS) high-frequency design software with National Instruments’ LabVIEW signal processing software and virtual instruments. The title of the paper is Using LabVIEW in the AWR Design Environment To Design Complex Circuits for Wireless Applications.
Power.org, ENEA, Freescale Semiconductor, and IBM are offering two educational webinars. The first webinar, QorIQ Qonverge – Complete Wireless Solutions for Small to Large Cells, will take place March 24 at 2:00 pm CT. It will be hosted by ENEA and Freescale Semiconductor. The second webinar, HPC – Innovative technologies for power management based on Power Architecture, will take place March 29 at 10:00 am CT. It will be hosted by IBM. The two webcasts are ideal for people dealing with power management issues in embedded mobile networking and high performance compute (HPC) applications.
Arteris and EVE teamed together on an integrated solution for system-on-chip (SoC) developers. The design flow enables engineers to generate and use actual SoC register transfer level (RTL) implementations on EVE’s ZeBu-Server emulation platform. The integration flow helps SoC developers create and ship products sooner.
Texas Instruments (TI) rolled out the Stellaris 13.56 MHz RFID Wireless Kit ($99), Stellaris 2.4 GHz SimpliciTI Wireless Kit ($125), and Stellaris ZigBee Networking Kit ($249). The kits are based on the Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontrollers (MCU). The Stellaris kits include software and reference design solutions for adding RFID, low-power RF and ZigBee capabilities to designs. The three wireless desing kits are available for order now. The Stellaris EM2 Expansion Board is also available for $39.
