first_imgVIDEO: Meshkov Brest – RK Vardar from different angle Recommended for you ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsOne of the tournament with the biggest tradition in Europe, STRUGA 2013 will be organized for the 41st year in a row in beautiful city of Struga in Macedonia from August 14 to August 17. The biggest handball derby on the Balkan, year by year with the higher importance in Europe between RK Vardar and RK Metalurg could have the first chapter in the upcoming season on the coast of amazing Ohrid Lake. Beside two TOP Macedonian teams, which could both play at the VELUX EHF Champions League next season, if Metalurg beat Pick Szeged in qualification battles, also Romanian TOP team and EHF CL member in the last few years, HCM Constanta is coming. Another ambitious team is Belarus Meshkov Brest, club which compete in SEHA also. Also two French team, Ivry Handball and Versaille Handball will come to Struga to compete against strong sides from different part of Europe. Ivry is known as the team who broke the years of Montpellier domination (2007) and wont he French championship before last season and PSG. Versaille Handball is the team of great tradition – who celebrate 50th birthday this year.VARDAR AND METALURG – FRIENDLY “FIRST AND THE LAST TIME”Two Macedonian teams, RK Vardar and RK Metalurg won’t play in the same group at the tournament, but with closer look at the participants list, won’t be surprise if two Macedonian teams meet at the Final or third place match. That will be the first match of two big rivals from six during season in SEHA, national Cup and Championship. Matches in Struga will be played from 19 and 20.45hrs.THING IS CLEAR – BALIC COMES TO STRUGA!RK Vardar and Meshkov Brest still fighting for service of the best handball player ever, Ivano Balic, but one thing is almost clear. No matter which team will choose handball “Mozzart”, he will participate at Struga 2013 – with Vardar or Meshkov. Organizers will have a chance for better promotion, while handball fans will enjoy to watch great playmaker…METALURG DEFENDS TITLEThe best ever season of Macedonian handball with placement at EHF CL TOP 8, RK Metalurg Skopje began in Struga 2012. Team of Lino Cervar won the tournament by triumph over Belarus top side Dinamo Minsk 26:23 later rival at VELUX EHF CL TOP 16.OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT WEBSITE Related Items:Handball tournaments, HCM Constanta, ivry handball, Meshkov Brest, RK Metalurg, RK Vardar, Struga 2013, Struga handball tournament, Versaille handball ShareTweetShareShareEmail Panic “gun-machine” for Meshkov win over Vardar in CL opener Click to comment RED ALARM IN PARIS: Sparkling Meshkov Brest upset PSG!

Guerrilla RF Signs Exclusive Global Distribution Agreement with Mouser

first_imgMouser Electronics has signed an exclusive global distribution agreement with Guerrilla RF. The Guerrilla is a start-up company headquartered in Greensboro, NC, provides high performance Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) for the wireless infrastructure market. They were incorporated in 2013 and are dedicated to the development of high performance MMICs to allow the wireless infrastructure equipment manufacturers to provide greater area coverage and higher data rates. They have a patent pending Guerrilla Armor™ technology and develop solutions across Enterprise & Carrier-Class Wi-Fi Access Points, Small Cells, wireless backhaul and defense applications.Their product line comprises of four series of low-noise amplifiers (LNAs). The GRF205x series ultra-LNAs boast exceptional noise figure, gain, and linearity, and supports a wide range of high-performance LNA applications. Its flexible application circuits result in simple, low-cost implementations that allow for optimal efficiency and reuse.The GRF2501 high-gain ultra-LNA is designed for IEEE 802.11a/n/ac/p applications in the 5 GHz band (4.9 GHz to 6.0 GHz). This device exhibits exceptional de-embedded noise figures (NFs) as low as 0.80 dB across the band, along with excellent gain and high linearity. It uses a single supply voltage of from 2.7 to 5.0 volts, with a typical bias condition of 3.3 V and 12 mA. This device is a broadband ultra-low noise linear amplifier designed for demanding 802.11ac and wireless backhaul LNA and power amplifier (PA) driver applications. It exhibits outstanding broadband NF, linearity, and return losses over 4.0 to 6.0 GHz with a single match. This amplifier operates from a single positive supply of 1.8 V to 5.0 V with a selectable IDDQ range of 20 to 70 mA for optimal efficiency and linearity. It is internally matched to 50 Ohms at the input and output ports, requiring only seven external resistor, inductor, and capacitor (RLC) components.The GRF400x series of broadband low-noise gain blocks are designed for small-cell, wireless infrastructures. These devices exhibit outstanding radio frequency (RF) performance over multiple GHz bandwidths with little or no external RF matching, delivering excellent NF and linearity over supply voltages ranging from 1.8 to 5.0 volts. Bias currents can be set independently from Vdd, allowing a linear solution with optimal efficiency. These amplifiers are suitable for applications requiring first- or second-stage LNA, or can be used as linear transmit drivers. The GRF4042 is a high-performance amplifier that offers bypass functionality and incorporates Guerrilla Armor technology, which provides high off-state isolation even in the presence of high-RF input powers. This isolation is especially useful in TDD systems in which significant transmitter RF power can leak into the transceiver receive path.The GRF50x0 Power LNA series consists of high-power, low-noise devices that, with simple matching, can be tuned to cover 100 MHz up to 6.0 GHz (100 MHz to 3.8 GHz for the GRF5040) with fractional bandwidths greater than 20 percent. Devices in this series are ideal for multistage LNA applications, microwave backhaul, and distributed antenna systems.last_img read more
