Within the world of electronics developments in RF & Microwave can be crucial to design engineers. At New Electronics we are aware of the importance of staying abreast of the recent advances in and the impact it can have on your role, that’s why we have collated all the latest news in one place.

Module to speed connected smart object development

Looking to help designers to streamline the prototyping and development of connected smart objects, STMicroelectronics has created the SPBTLE-1S, said to be a ready-to-use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module that integrates all the components needed to complete the radio subsystem. The module integrates ST’s BlueNRG-1 application-processor SoC and balun, high-frequency oscillators and a chip antenna.

Bluetooth mesh SDK unveiled

Nordic Semiconductor has introduced a software development kit (SDK) which allows engineers to develop Bluetooth mesh based applications. The SDK, which includes the company’s first release of its Bluetooth mesh software stack, is compatible with Nordic’s nRF51 and nRF52 series SoCs and the S110, S130, and S132 SoftDevices.

Antennas work on metal surfaces without de-tuning

A family of antennas from Antenova has been engineered to operate without de-tuning on metal surfaces or where the product housing is mainly metal. According to the company, these situations normally make it difficult for an antenna to operate.

First 2.5 and 5Gbit/s octal Ethernet transceiver

Marvell has announced the Alaska M 88E2180 Gigabit Ethernet transceiver, which it claims to be the first compatible with both the IEEE 802.3bz standard and the NBASE-T AllianceSM specification for 2.5 and 5Gbit/s operation over CAT5e cables.

SiGe based amplifier outperforms other devices

The LTC6432-15 from Linear Technology is a wideband fully differential amplifier with 15dB gain. According to the company, recently acquired by Analog Devices, it offers a linearity of up to +50.3dBm at the output third-order intercept (OPI3dB), an output 1dB compression point (OP1dB) of +22.7dBm and a 3.2dB noise figure at 150MHz.

Linear launches dual 10GHz differential amplifier

Linear Technology has launched the LTC6419, a dual 10GHz gain bandwidth product differential amplifier that comes with a very low input voltage noise density of 1.1nV/vHz, delivering an improved SNR performance for wideband signal amplification.

Bluetooth low energy portfolio expanded

Delivering more available memory, Bluetooth 5-ready hardware, automotive qualification and an ultra-small wafer-chip-scale package option, the CC2640R2F and CC2640R2F-Q1 have been added to Texas Instruments’ scalable SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC264x wireless MCU family.

Bluetooth and NFC module for rapid EIoT development

Alpha Micro has begun distributing a certified Bluetooth Low Energy v4.2 and near field communication module, the Laird BL652. The compact stand-alone module is said to offer multiple interfaces and an easy-to-use application development environment for secure connectivity integration without impacting power budgets or space limitations.

Bluetooth 5 compatible silicon RF IP

A Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) RF from CSEM is said to have been fully validated as Bluetooth 5 compatible. The IcyTRX silicon RF IP was developed through a partnership with Rohde & Schwarz.

Home automation reference designs

Two wireless occupancy sensor and smart outlet reference designs from Silicon Labs address the home automation market. According to the company, the designs – pre-certified by the US FCC and UL – include all the hardware, firmware and software tools required to create connected home products based on its ZigBee ‘Golden Unit’ Home Automation (HA 1.2) software stack and the EFR32MG Mighty Gecko SoC.
