Looking back, 2020 was a year full of big changes regarding how RF spectrum is allocated in the US. Led by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), multiple portions of the spectrum ranging from the C band to the V band were either opened to new uses and/or auctioned to new users throughout the year. These changes are driving a variety of new opportunities for wireless device manufacturers and broadband and cellular carriers, which is resulting in a range of exciting new challenges for RF technology vendors to help solve.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 11 am EST for this Knowles Precision Devices and Charged EVs live Webinar discussing how to address the challenges associated with selecting safe and reliable components for high-voltage EVs.
As with everything in 2020, the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is a bit different this year. We’re gearing up for the live stream event next week, Aug. 4-6, where we’ll participate in the virtual exhibition and give six online MicroApp technical presentations.
At Knowles Precision Devices (KPD), we handle the specialty components that go in the systems that can’t quit. We have the extensive resources and subject matter knowledge to innovate around the technical and environmental challenges facing high-impact industries including military, aerospace, and beyond.
Knowles Precision Devices will be at the upcoming Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference, the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals, March 10-12 in San Diego. For over 40 years, OFC has drawn attendees from all corners of the globe to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections and move the industry forward.
At the show, Knowles will demonstrate broad bandwidth optical networking solutions using our latest high-performance microelectronic components.
As the year comes to a close, it's the season to take some time to relax and reflect on the year. You’ve likely read many of our blog posts this year and you may have missed a few – it's been a busy year! Never fear, we've rounded up our most popular blog posts from 2019. We hope that they'll bring you some holiday cheer, or at least provide some ideas and insights to use for a successful 2020.
As aerospace and defense technology advances, manufacturers need to find ways to incorporate more features without simply making planes larger, heavier, and increasingly more expensive. This is why the size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) is often a driving factor for aerospace and defense companies when awarding contracts to component manufacturers.
In mission-critical applications, additional screening and testing is required to ensure that only the most robust parts make it to the finished product. Preventative measures, like high quality standards, lessen the possibility of failure in the field and minimize the likelihood of astronomical downstream costs.
We look forward to seeing you in Paris for European Microwave Week 2019. We will be there to discuss our RF and Microwave solutions, including:

Innovating essential high technology systems with demanding specifications is always challenging; making any sort of difference requires extensive resources and deep subject matter knowledge.
But that’s what keeps it interesting.
