Cadence Design Systems has agreed to buy the AWR RF-design company from its current owner National Instruments for approximately $160m.
Slovenian startup Red Pitaya has added a front-end module and firmware to its FPGA-based StemLab board to create a customizable vector network analyzer (VNA) and RF tester.
High peak-to-average ratios inherent in 4G/5G modulation schemes are driving the circuitry controlling RF PAs to become more modeling-oriented.
National Instruments wants to shift the focus for many embedded systems designers away from hardware cost optimization towards graphical programming as a way of reducing the time it takes to get targets up, running and productive.
