JFW Industries is a designer and manufacturer of application specific matrix switches, programmable attenuator assemblies, switch assemblies, manual attenuator assemblies and power divider assemblies. The capability to integrate components such as switches, power dividers, attenuators, amplifiers, diplexers, couplers, isolators, circulators, detectors, dc blocks, bias taps and filters into test systems allows JFW to offer a wide range of solutions to switching and attenuating requirements. With control options such as RS232, GPIB and ethernet, JFW test systems are suitable for a multitude of testing applications and JFW will design a model for the user's specific requirements.
The SD-160 and SD-170 series of RF data radios are a key component in remote control, monitoring and two-way communication systems. The SD-160 features 2 W of transmit power and the SD-170 features 1-5 W of transmit power, LED status indicator and 16 channels for data or voice communication. High level audio quality makes them suitable for golf course and emergency call boxes.
RFI has released a range of RF-over-fibre (RF/OF) modules. Typical applications include the remote locating of antennas and repeater amplifier (booster) applications in tunnels, mines and large building complexes.
Mobile One noise attenuating headsets are manufactured to exacting standards with stringent quality control. They offer: good hearing protection; good sonic performance for both listening and voice; maximum comfort and minimum weight; durability through rugged construction; ease of servicing, including field-replaceable components; and adaptability to almost any electronic communications system.
The new Kenwood Dispatch Software was developed especially for the customers who require 21st century technology to manage their fleets but due to high overheads and ongoings do not require software and hardware that is in some cases three times the cost.
The DC-0.8/18-70/140/160 and DC-0.5/20-70/140/160-SP are high performance ultra-broadband 2 Hz steps agile downconverters. These downconverters accept RF signals from 0.8-18 GHz and 0.5-20 GHz, respectively, and provide one selectable IF output of either 70, 140 or 160 MHz and one L-band output at 1200 MHz.
RFM has released its Radio Module Product Line, which combines amplifier-sequenced hybrid (ASH) radio technology with low current microcontrollers, battery-conserving communication protocol methods and efficient miniature antennas.
WaveRider's NCL1170 Bridge/Router enables reliable broadband connections between two or more corporate computer networks, outlying offices and the internet. It offers high level performance in licence exempt wireless connectivity for LAN-to-Internet and LAN-to-LAN applications. Using Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum modulation in the licence exempt 2.4 GHz ISM band, it can be deployed quickly without applying for regulatory approvals, and without incurring any licensing or service charges.
Xemics has released a device based on the Embedded-Host Architecture in its EasyBlue family. This programmable microcontroller with embedded Bluetooth controller makes the development of any Bluetooth application easier.
When trying to protect onboard computers in trucks and buses from road and engine vibrations, a soft isolation mount is often required. Gel-Mec has a range of ultrasoft gel sandwich or stud mounts which are much softer than traditional rubber isolators. These mounts are made of a very soft, highly damped silicone gel bonded to metal.
The Checkpoint Meto machine, capable of overprinting RF-EAS labels at high speed with no risk of deactivation, addresses the growing need for suppliers and exporters to use 'at source' tagging with internationally high criteria for quality and reliability.
Xemics' two-chip Bluetooth solution, using the recent Skyworks' 1.2 compatible radio, sees overall PCB surface required shrink to less than 49 mm2. This means that the two-chip solution is even smaller than the 'single chip solutions' available.
