3D Glass mmWave PDK

A new 3D Glass Solutions (3DGS) glass-based mmWave RF device PDK for use with NI AWR software has been released and is available directly from 3DGS. The PDK enables designers to develop passive components such as filters and amplifier impedance-matching circuits critical for 5G FR2 communications, automotive radar, and other mmWave applications.

A Designer’s Primer on 5G Communications

Recent advances in NI AWR software are helping designers develop the antenna and RF front-end components that are making 5G a reality. This primer offers content on the innovative wizards and synthesis technologies that enable engineers designing 5G communications systems to deliver cost-effective, high performance, and high-reliability products to market.

Insulated Wire Inc.

Insulated Wire Inc. is pleased to announce that following the retirement of a French delegate, IW Microwave Products Division President, John Morelli, has been appointed as the Secretary for IEC/SC46F, a subcommittee of IEC/TC46. IEC/SC46F is responsible for RF and Microwave Connectors and Components International Standardization.

Mr. Morelli, who is sponsored by Insulated Wire, brings significant RF/Microwave connector and component experience to the position, and we congratulate him on his new appointment. Mr. Morelli had been serving as the chief Technical Advisor for the US National Committee’s Technical Advisory Group to IEC/SC46F.

The US National Committee of the IEC is a fully integrated entity of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
