MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y., Dec. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frequency Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEIM) reported revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, which ended October 31, 2016, of $12.9 million as compared to $16.0 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2016.  Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2017 were $25.6 million compared to $32.7 million recorded in the same period of the prior year. The Company recorded an operating loss of $1.3 million for the quarter ended October 31, 2016, compared to an operating profit of $48,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.  Operating loss for the first six months of fiscal year 2017 was $2.1 million compared to an operating profit of $1.0 million in the first half of fiscal year 2016. Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.0 million or ($0.12) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $69,000 or ($0.01) per diluted share for the second quarter of the prior year. For the year to date, net loss was $1.7 million or ($0.20) per diluted share, compared to net income of $822,000 or $0.09 per diluted share. Commenting on these results and the business outlook, Chairman of the Board Joel Girsky said: “Reversing the trend of these last six months, Frequency expects to achieve positive operating income in the current quarter and going forward. “With respect to our satellite business, principal customers in both the Commercial and US Government arenas had indicated they expected an upturn in project releases late this year. This upturn appears to be underway. Our bookings to date are substantially higher than the rate of the past several months. We just reported approximately $7 million in new key contracts. “In our secure communications business area we are making excellent progress in bookings, production under existing contracts and, most importantly, product development for a market which over time can be as large or greater than any other we have ever addressed. “Operating results for the first six months of fiscal 2017 were impacted not only by lower revenues and product mix but also by large one-time expenses which are not expected to reoccur during the balance of the year. Based on cost saving measures now in place along with rising revenues and our internal operating leverage, we expect to show an operating profit for the full fiscal year 2017. “Internal research and development during the past six months rose substantially, approaching $4 million as we focused available engineering efforts on meeting next generation product requirements for the new market opportunities ahead in both satellite payloads and secure communications. “As well, we are actively addressing operations at each of our subsidiaries with a view toward improving consolidated performance and generating additional cash.” Fiscal 2017 Selected Financial Metrics and Other Items: As previously announced, the Company will hold a conference call to discuss these results on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, at 4:30 PM Eastern Time.  Investors and analysts may access the call by dialing 1-877-407-9205.  International callers may dial 1-201-689-8054.  Ask for the Frequency Electronics conference call.

This paper reports on the processing and characterization of AlN/GaN metaloxidesemiconductor high-electron mobility transistors (MOS-HEMTs). The devices employ thermally grown A2O3 as a gate dielectric and surface protection and passivation, which is an approach that provides an opportunity to define the ohmic contact areas by wet etching of Al (and optimization of this processing step) prior to the formation of Al 2O3 and ohmic metal deposition. The devices also employ a new process technique that significantly suppresses leakage currents on the mesa sidewalls. Fabricated devices exhibited good direct current and radio frequency performance. A high peak current, i.e., ∼1.5 A/mm, at VGS+3 V and a current-gain cutoff frequency fT and maximum oscillation frequency f MAX of 50 and 40 GHz, respectively, were obtained for a device with 0.2-μ m gate length and 100-μ gate width. Additionally, a robust method for the extraction of the small-signal equivalent circuit suitable for process optimization is described. It relies on intimate process knowledge and device geometry to determine equivalent circuit elements of the fabricated AlN/GaN MOS-HEMTs. © 2010 IEEE.

The feasibility of three different approaches to achieving the desired capability shall be studied during Phase I. (1.) Utilization of silicon MEMS resonators, incorporated into a MEMS based oscillator along with MEMS based accelerometers for active vibration compensation shall be investigated (2.) Utilization of a temperature controlled quartz resonator, electrostatically levitated in order to reduce sensitivity to vibration as well as to provide thermal isolation (in order to drastically reduce the required power) shall be investigated. In this case, infra-red thermal control through a transparent window incorporated into the resonator enclosure shall also be studied, as a required element of this approach. (3.) Utilization of a temperature controlled quartz resonator, in which the resonator is mounted with extremely low thermal conductivity, but high electrical conductivity mounts.

In this article, we propose a new approach to study a suitable structure of metamaterial antennas for radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that operates in the UHF band. This antenna is constituted by a dipole associated to resonant materials. These materials are the split ring resonators forming the nested metamaterial by a network fee specific and homogeneous structure that can produce an effective negative permeability. Thanks to the effect metamaterials, we can improve the performance and reduce the size of the studied antenna, which is very important for the RFID applications.
