inTEST Corp., an independent designer, manufacturer and marketer of temperature management products and semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) interface solutions, announced that its Thermal Solutions Group has launched the industry’s most comprehensive line of Precision Temperature Forcing Systems, the THERMOSTREAM® ATS Series. With temperature range extremes as high as +300ºC (+570ºF) and as low as -100ºC (-148ºF), countless test and conditioning applications can now be solved with a compact, precise and portable system.
Texas Instruments Inc. introduced two analog front ends (AFEs) that provide low power, high performance and space savings for test and measurement, wireless communications and optical networking equipment. The AFE7071 is a complete radio transmitter that reduces board space by up to 80 percent compared to discrete implementations. It integrates a dual digital-to-analog converter (DAC), tunable baseband filters, IQ modulator and digital quadrature modulation correction circuit.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced that the TM500 Test Mobile is the first to market to support full protocol stack UE (user equipment) emulation that enables network testing and measurements for the DC-HSUPA (Dual Cell High-Speed Upload Packet Access) standard specified in 3GPP W-CDMA Release 9.
AWT Global has launched a new line of portable passive intermodulation (PIM) testers with an extended carrier power range: the PIM+ series. These systems are equally suited for testing macro cells as well as outdoor and in-building DAS installations. While 2 x 20 W (2 x 43 dBm) carrier power is the reference for standard for PIM test systems, the new PIM+ offers an extended adjustable power range of +15 dBm to +44 dBm for each carrier.
7Layers has announced that it is the first independent test lab to measure Envelope Correlation Coefficient.
Boeing has developed an advanced method to test wireless signals in airplane cabins, making it possible for passengers to enjoy more reliable connectivity when using networked personal electronic devices in the air.
Agilent will demonstrate the following test solutions:
octoScope Inc. announced a logic implementation of its MIMO octoFade™ wireless testing solution. When applied to a wireless signal using digital signal processing, channel emulation makes the signal appear as though it has traversed a realistic space, having been reflected from walls, cars, people or other surfaces.
Azimuth Systems introduced the latest upgrade to its ACE™ MX and MX2 MIMO channel emulators. The sixth release includes increased support for multi-link and mesh networks and an updated version of DIRECTORTM II test executive software (release 7.6) for enhanced functionality and ease-of-use.
Agilent introduced the industry's first LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions. The offerings complement Agilent's other industry-first solutions for the LTE-Advanced standard.
