At UK & Ireland NI Days 2014 Microwave Journal got an insight into National Instrument’s approach to the Internet of Things, the rush to ‘add wireless’, the importance of the cost of test for RF components, and the advance of 5G, particularly the development of millimetre-wave frequencies.
Anritsu Co. continues its industry leadership position in wireless test with the announcement that its ME7873L RF Conformance Test System has achieved GCF-approved test case validation for LTE evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) Band 4 and Band 13 RF conformance test cases.
Rohde & Schwarz is introducing a powerful scanning direction finder with diverse application options. The R&S DDF5GTS offers fast, accurate direction finding and uses multichannel DF antennas for sensitivity that meets the highest demands while ensuring immunity to reflections.
When developing radar sensor chipsets, users can now use the new Rohde & Schwarz solution to simulate a realistic scenario in the lab. For example, it is possible to simulate vehicles with different moving profiles or stress tests in different environments. As a result, developers can verify the signal processing algorithms of the sensor at an early stage.
Microwave Vision Group and Amplifier Research have signed a memorandum of agreement that will provide customers with a greater choice of quality EMC and Antenna Measurement turnkey solutions based on their combined expertise and product portfolio.
At the 5G Global Summit, held in Busan, South Korea, Rohde & Schwarz presented an extremely compact test setup for generating and analyzing signals up to 67 GHz that will enables users to evaluate potential new physical air interface technologies for future 5G networks.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate solutions that improve automotive engineers' efficiency in debugging controller area network with flexible data-rate (CAN FD) and single-edge nibble transmission (SENT) serial buses at the Automotive Testing Expo, Suburban Collection Showplace, Booth 12024, Novi, Michigan, Oct. 28-30.
Anritsu Co. announces the appointment of Dr. Alexander Chenakin as director of R&D for the Anritsu Microwave Measurement Division (MMD). A renowned expert in the test and measurement industry who holds multiple patents and has earned numerous awards, Dr. Chenakin will oversee the Anritsu R&D team responsible for developing the company’s next-generation synthesized source product line.
Mesuro Ltd., with support from National Instruments, announced its latest advance in the utilization of PXI to improve the speed of test for today’s technical demand. At European Microwave Week the two organizations demonstrated a load pull set up that uses a traditional passive tuner for fundamental tuning and adds the RAPID PXI digital tuner to provide a high speed harmonic tuning capability.
Anite, a global leader in wireless network testing technology, announced the acquisition of Xceed Technologies Inc., to meet the growing market requirements for data analysis and post-processing and to further expand its network testing product portfolio.
