Diamond Microwave Compact X-band GaN SSPAs

first_imgDiamond Microwave has re-designed its range of GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) into a new common module format, and has added  a new X-band model that can be operated in either pulsed or CW mode. The amplifier range now includes SSPA in the ranges 2 to 6 GHz (DM-SC80-01), 7.65 to 9.35 GHz (DM-X100-01) – GaN solid-state amplifier has 100W peak pulsed power output over 1700 MHz bandwidth and 16.3 to 17.3 GHz (DM-K100-01). The amplifier designs are flexible in layout and architecture, and are fully customisable to meet individual specifications for electrical, mechanical and environmental parameters. All of Diamond Microwave’s amplifiers are ideal for use in demanding defence, aerospace and communications applications.“We have added a new X-band GaN SSPA to our product range, and at the same time the full range has been re-packaged into a new common module format,” said Richard Lang, managing director at Diamond Microwave. “These amplifiers are extremely compact, the core microwave assembly being a chip-and-wire design in a slim, low-profile housing. If size is important, we can supply amplifiers without an enclosure, for significantly tighter integration into a microwave sub-system. They can also be tailored to suit other frequency ranges in the 1-18GHz range.”These amplifier products will be showcased at Booth #2512 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Phoenix from 19-21 May, 2015.last_img read more

Ronaldo leads Brazil to fifth World Cup victory

first_imgDavid Beckham vilified as Argentina beats England in St Etienne, France, in 1998.The big question in 2002 centered on Brazil’s Ronaldo and whether he could exorcise the ghosts of four years earlier when the striker turned in a hugely subdued performance in the final against France. With eight goals, including the two in the final that beat off a resilient Germany, Ronaldo scored more times in a tournament than anyone since West Germany’s Gerd Muller in 1970. His goals helped Brazil reclaim the crown it lost on that curious night at Stade de France. Brazil, led by current coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, won an unprecedented fifth World Cup.David Beckham wasn’t always the golden boy of English football. Early in the second half of this round of 16 match he became public enemy number one after being sent off for kicking out at Argentina captain Diego Simeone. Despite a steadfast performance by England’s 10 men, the game ended 2-2 and Argentina won the ensuing penalty shootout. Beckham faced months of derision in the press and around English grounds. But his perseverance saw him win over his critics and by the 2002 World Cup he was captain. He even scored the penalty that defeated Argentina in that tournament.last_img read more

From Spain: Man United will try and sign Bale, ‘only way…

first_imgThis is, at least, what Marca are reporting on Wednesday afternoon as they report the Red Devils will indeed make a move for the Real Madrid winger this summer, as this time they believe they have a good chance to get his ‘OK’.The Welsh forward’s comments following the Champions League final about needing to play regularly were exactly what they wanted to hear, and Manchester United are going into this with the plan of making Bale their ‘star’, in the same vein as Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain.The Spanish outlet state this is also a ‘strategic move’ for the Premier League, as the league know the more stars they have, the more people will watch, and bringing Bale back to England would help.Embed from Getty ImagesAs they put it, ‘in Manchester United, there are no discussions’, and signing the Champions League final hero is the ‘only way’ to inspire their fans’ hope after a disappointing season despite Mourinho wanting to spend money elsewhere, like in defence or midfield.Over in Spain, Marca claim the former Tottenham man’s case is preoccupying Florentino Pérez more than Cristiano Ronaldo’s, who they believe will renew regardless of his annoyance with the club and the president.Despite this, Real Madrid aren’t interested in transferring Bale, and aren’t worried about him forcing his way out of the club.So, just more of the same then?by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

‘The parties agree’ – Chelsea close to next signing, ‘assault’ on…

first_imgJorginho arriving with Sarri from Napoli has only served to underline that, and the manager could be getting a spine of former players at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea begin an ‘assault’ on targets, reports Tuttosport.The most linked has of course been Gonzalo Higuain, with Juventus looking to sell after signing Cristiano Ronaldo. But ‘Pipita’ is said to not want to feel pushed into anything, it sound like he needs a little ego soothing at the moment.Then there’s Daniele Rugani.There have been repeated reports in the Italian media of some sort of agreement between Chelsea and Juve for the central defender, and Tuttosport touches on that again today. ‘All the parties’ agree, it’s claimed, with an offer of £40m presented as the reason, but first Chelsea would prefer to make a sale.Embed from Getty ImagesDavid Luiz is suggested as the man to go out, and transfers are expected to speed up.Sarri would surely be happy with a spine of players who he’s already managed (Rugani, Jorginho, Higuain) and that would give him more power over the Chelsea squad.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Not nearly enough striping. Gray numbers? Terrible idea, gray isn’t even a school color! At least black is an official color for Rutgers. The red uniform is by far the worst. If you make the helmet and the numbers red on the white jersey it could work. Thank god I never had to watch these uniforms while I was an undergrad. It’s a shame to see my soon-to-be Alma Mater fall from one of the best and classiest uniforms in college football, to one of the worst. 0 107 posts 296 posts Members idk “Sports Aesthetics” Page 1 of 16   Favourite Logos:Barcelona DragonsHartford WhalersUS Soccer RattlesnakeJoliet Slammers “J-Bird”NBA All-Star New Orleans Crawfish First of all, let’s get one thing straight: it’s anthracite, not gray. Secondly, I thoroughly expect them (Nike) to tear this up?and I don’t mean that in a good way. As B-Moore mentioned up top, seems like Nike’s done nailed down a certain process, all of which seem to include some shade of gray (if not two), and whatever flavor du jour they’re on at the time?right now it’s patterns in the numbers…not to mention creating some off-the-wall new proprietary font “just because”. (And speaking of, Rutgers has done a great job of identifying themselves by that Rockell-ish font they have now; it’d be a shame to see them toss that by the wayside in favor of some new flavor-of-the-moment font.)All that said, we saw what Utah State just came out with, and the Mizzou sets were pretty well tame overall, so we know the Swoosh is capable of restraint; the question is: will they?

Is it time for bookmakers to embrace fantasy?

first_img Submit All-in Global: ‘Fantastyc’ markets around the world July 16, 2020 Bookmakers are constantly on the lookout for new additions and features to both retain punters and attract new ones. This is ever trickier in an increasingly flooded marketplace. It’s one which shows no signs of clearing out too with numerous sportsbooks popping up this year from casino operators opening their own sportsbooks to the recent launch of Sun Bets.Real money daily fantasy sports meanwhile is another contender for some of these customers. Whilst the UK hasn’t quite embraced DraftKings in the way that the US did, there are numerous reasons for this not least that there has been relatively little marketing campaigns around it to date.In ten months in 2015 FanDuel and DraftKings spent a combined $206m on television ads alone in the States, with the former the bigger chunk of the pie at $131m for 40,283 national airings. Some argued that via this oversaturation they caused their own problems in the US as DFS was put directly under the spotlight. As such it became something regulators could no longer ignore and more research went into it in general. With FanDuel having entered the mix in the UK it’s likely that a marketing war will begin between the two major firms. You can however expect them to play it smarter and more diligent this time around. Outside of these, Oulala and Mondogoal have slowly but surely built up impressive followings by utilising alternative methods in the form of partnerships with media companies and football clubs. Valery Bollier, OulalaOulala CEO Valery Bollier said: “FanDuel’s arrival is, of course, great news for the DFS sector in Europe, just as Draftkings’ arrival was. Both companies possess a huge marketing budget, and there is no doubt that they will rapidly increase the level of awareness on our sector. Healthy competition is always beneficial for a sector.”The next step, and the one which could prove the most vital for DFS’ long term success in Europe, is partnering with bookmakers. This is something Mondogoal has done in Italy already with both SISAL and Lottomatica having a tailored white label version live on their sites. The company is also in talks to enter the UK market via an agreement with ‘a well known bookmaker’. Oulala meanwhile has announced plans to enter the Asian and Australian markets via Cardinal House Group and Italy through a partnership with Game Interaction Group.Mondogoal CEO Shergul Arshad said this ahead of the new season: “This season is critical. With FanDuel entering the market and DraftKings plus Yahoo…some big boys will be in the UK. Over in Italy, our product, Mondogoal.it and our partner sites with Sisal and Lottomatica are leading the way. “The major sports betting sites should all jump in the fray and soon, via partnership, to ensure no customer loss or cannibalization.”Shergul Arshad, MondogoalSo what’s in it for the bookies? It’s a new way to compete and it’s a new way to keep players on site. Selecting a team in DFS naturally tends to take longer than it does to put an accy or any other bet on, with the the level of research required for what is far more of a skill game.Eilers Research conducted a survey in July 2015 and whilst this was in the US, and so extensive comparisons cannot be drawn with the UK market, there are some interesting takeaways for bookmakers and for the future of the industry in Europe.It was found that 32% of respondents spent between 10 to 20 hours per week researching their fantasy line-ups, and that whilst 42% spent less than $100 per week, close to 10% stated that they spend upwards of $2000 weekly on entry fees. In the same survey respondents overwhelmingly stated that even if sports betting were legal and readily available they would still play DFS. Legal Sports Report assessed the analysis last year and focused on the takeaway that marketing towards poker players seems to be a good idea due to the correlation between the two.Via fantasy products bookmakers will be able to keep players active longer and keep them returning to check on the status of their team. Therein they’ve gained the opportunity to maximise profit from these players.DFS operators meanwhile gain the obvious bonus of opening themselves to huge numbers of players that have already signed up and handed over their account information. In short it’s win win, and many typical sports betting punters are likely to enjoy the opportunity to win money in what is regarded as involving more skill than placing a ‘Both teams to score and X to win’ wager on a Saturday afternoon.Mondogoal’s Shergul Arshad and Oulala’s Valery Bollier will be on a panel discussing how DFS operators and bookmakers can work together at the Betting on Sports conference (September 15-16) in London.Both will be available to answer any questions and for any enquiries post-panel.
