First LoRa technology evaluation kits

Microchip has unveiled a range of LoRa technology evaluation kits. The kits, the first of their kind, provide customers with all the components required to create a Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) for North America in the 915 MHz band (DV164140-2), or for Europe in the 868 MHz band (DV164140-1).

New package for RF power transistors

A new package platform is being rolled out across Ampleon’s LDMOS and GaN product portfolio. More than a dozen variants of the SOT502 and SOT539 platforms are said to be in development.

Bluetooth LE modules and evaluation kits

Alpha Micro has added Bluetooth Low Energy devices to its product portfolio. The NINA-B111 and B112 modules from u-blox, as well as the EVK-NINA-B1 evaluation kit, are compliant with the Bluetooth 4.2 wireless standard and have been created to shorten the development time for IoT designs.

Murata targets V2X applications with high Q MLCC

Murata has launched the GCQ series of high Q monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCC). Aimed at automotive V2X applications and available in capacitance values from 0.1 to 47 pF, with C0G temperature characteristic and a rated voltage of 50 Vdc, the series conforms to the requirements of the automotive components standard AEC-Q200 and is intended for use with V2X, ADAS and other automotive applications.

Ultra-compact 3G/2G cellular module

The SARA-U201, currently the smallest cellular module available supporting 2G and 3G, is now available from Alpha Micro Components. The device is pin and form factor compatible with u-blox’s other region-specific 2G and 3G variants, such as the 2G SARA-G350.

Multi-GNSS receiver with embedded security

Alpha Micro has released the u-blox M8 with 3.01 firmware, a multi-GNSS receiver platform with a -167dBm sensitivity, providing a 2m position accuracy. The device has been designed to let OEMs create advanced automotive navigation, drive recorder, emergency call systems, drone positioning, and other such systems that demand accuracy and reliability.

BoostedNFC for wearables improves contactless user experience

Ineltek has added the ams AS3921 NFC (Near Field Communications) analogue front end device to its range of wireless semiconductor solutions. Equipped with ams’ BoostedNFC technology, the device is claimed to enable gains in performance for space-constrained applications such as smart watches, wristbands and other wearables.

Low power Bluetooth module for IoT applications

Panasonic has launched a next-generation (nanopower) Bluetooth Smart module for the Internet of Things. The PAN1760 Series Bluetooth smart module v4.1 with integrated antenna and embedded GATT profile is claimed to be a cost-effective, low-power, true system-on-chip (SoC) solution for low energy Bluetooth applications such as data transfer to smartphones/tablets, wireless health monitoring, smart home, general industry, and portable applications without host MCU.

Set top box tester gives greater control

RedRat is launching the latest version of its set top box testing and control product, the irNetBox. The device is designed to give set top box manufacturers greater control over stress testing processes and simplify installation and use.

First integrated amplifier and balun in one package

Integrated Device Technology (IDT) has introduced a broadband differential input RF amplifier that is claimed to simplify designs for transmitters utilising RF digital-to-analogue converters and/or integrated transceivers used in base stations and public safety infrastructure.

Low noise amplifiers are alternatives to hybrid devices

MMIC broadband low noise amplifiers from Aspen Electronics are said to be suitable alternatives to more costly hybrid amplifiers. According to the supplier, the devices are suited for use in communications systems requiring small size and low power consumption. It adds that the 50W matched design eliminates the need for external DC blocks or RF port matching.
