Renesas Electronics positions the new PS9402 optocoupler as a product that can contribute to simplified development and greater compactness in inverter systems, for which the market is expected to continue to grow in future. The company plans to continue to develop new high-temperature and high-output product versions.


EMEA market expected to turn around in 2011


The EMEA optical network hardware market is forecast to make an overall gain of about 7% in 2011 as a result of a spending recovery in Western Europe, access network deployments in the Middle East and strong growth in metro WDM equipment in Eastern and Central Europe.


Market research firm Infonetics Research today has excerpts from its Optical Network Hardware in EMEA: Europe, Middle East, and Africa report.


“The optical network hardware market in EMEA saw a strong rebound in late 2010 due to a year-end spending flurry, but it wasn’t strong enough to turn around the decline for the year (down 11%). We forecast an overall gain of about 7% in EMEA in 2011, as a result of a spending recovery in Western Europe; access network deployments in the Middle East, particularly the Arabian peninsula and Israel; and strong growth in metro WDM equipment in Eastern and Central Europe as carriers shift from microwave to fibre-fed access for wireless backhaul,” notes Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.


The report highlights that western Europe leads optical hardware equipment spending in EMEA, with 60% in 2010. The optical hardware market in Central and Eastern Europe is growing the fastest among the EMEA regions. Also, for the full 2010 year, Alcatel-Lucent leads the EMEA optical network hardware market, with about 1/3 of the market, followed closely by Huawei. EMEA represented 30% of worldwide telecom capital expenditures (CAPEX) in 2010, and 31% of worldwide optical equipment spending

Hittite targets the military market with 8 GHz synthesiser


The firm’s latest module is suited to microwave point-to-point radios and radar applications.


Hittite Microwave Corporation, a supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets has introduced the HMC703LP4E, a DC to 8 GHz, very low noise fractional synthesizer ideal for driving Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) used in Microwave Point-to-Point Radios.


As Quadrature Amplitude Modulation in microwave radios moves to higher constellations, and signal bandwidths are tightening, excellent phase noise and spurious product performance is mandatory. The HMC703LP4E provides the ideal solution for the tough Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) and integrated phase noise specifications that these high data rate, frequency-efficient telecommunications systems require.


The HMC703LP4E features Frequency Shift Keying modulation as well as bi-phase modulation with data rates limited by the loop filter bandwidth (typically 100 kHz). It also features a built-in
