Intriguing PR from NetLogic Microsystems…OP6100 supports up to 65MHZ OBW

Posted · Add Comment

There is an interesting release from NetLogic Microsystems that their OP6100 supports 65MHz Occupied Band Width (OBW) with 145MHz of total bandwidth. This part seems like a great part to think about for LTE Advanced systems, and multigenerational basestations that need to support multiple carriers and formats simultaneously. On the other hand, not sure if […]


3D Printing Method Facilitates High Performance Small Antenna Design (Cool!)

Posted · Add Comment

This is very impressive. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers Jennifer Berhnard and Jennifer Lewis have devised a clever method of fabricating an antenna in 3D using silver nanoparticle ink on glass hemispheres. The resulting antenna is a high Q, electrically small (ESA) antenna that outperforms other ESA (monopoles. ) Using these in smart phones […]
