14 Apr 04. A team led by BAE Systems has developed a next-generation transistor technology that improves speed, integration density and power consumption for solid state integrated circuits. The team, composed of BAE Systems Information and Electronic Warfare Systems (IEWS), Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, recently demonstrated a circuit with a clock frequency of 152 GHz – an industry record for static frequency divider circuits. The indium phosphide (InP) heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) was developed under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Technology for Frequency Agile Digitally Synthesized Transmitters (TFAST) program. The Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, Md., has principal oversight of the program.
Apr 04. Dy 4 Systems announced its leading-edge SVME/DMV-680 SwitchBlade multi-layer Gigabit Ethernet switch with expansion capability. Providing sophisticated capabilities for the network-centric battlefield, the SVME/DMV-680 SwitchBlade is the world’s first VME form-factor, conduction-cooled, non-blocking, full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet switch that can scale up to 24 ports of wire-speed performance in a single VME slot. Purpose-designed for rugged military/aerospace intra-platform networks (IP-based networks in air, land, and sea vehicles), it allows systems integrators to make high performance chassis-to-chassis, board-to-board or even CPU-to-CPU connections over Gigabit Ethernet.
