- Buyers Guide
Pasternack Enterprises Inc., an ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave products, expands inventory of in-series and between-series SMP and Mini SMP adapters for millimeter wave applications.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
National Instruments announced 10 pieces of new application IP that enable engineers and scientists to use NI LabVIEW system design software to build their own custom RF instruments. This IP integrates with PXI FPGA targets such as the NI PXIe-5644R VST and extends their default capabilities.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a new protocol testing solution for MIPITM Alliance Gear2 DigRf v4 RFICs. The Agilent M9252A DigRF host adapter allows developers to speed testing and analysis of RFICs used in cellular phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
SenarioTek announced the extension of the FlexMatrix reconfigurable RF switch matrix series to incorporate external signal conditioning. Now test engineers can easily route their required signal conditioning into RF switching paths for applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp. announced that the 7100 Digital Radio Test Set has added support for carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A).
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced its new E6607C EXT wireless communications test set, featuring an integrated multiport adapter for cost-effective, high-volume wireless device manufacturing test. Optimized for testing multiple devices simultaneously, the EXT-C with integrated multiport adapter enables up to 3x gain in effective test throughput (vs. the EXT-B) for less than 1.3x the price.
Anritsu Co. introduces Windows-based remote control software for its PIM Master MW82119A, the industry’s first high-power, battery-operated, portable PIM test analyzer. With the software, field technicians on the ground can control an MW82119A configured on top of the tower, making it easier and more efficient to conduct highly accurate PIM measurements, especially for difficult-to-access sites, such as Remote Radio Head (RRH) installations.
Aeroflex Inc. announced the POCSAG testing option for the 3920 Series Digital Radio Test Set. With this option, the 3920 Series can now be used to verify the operation of POCSAG pagers and paging systems.
Anritsu Co. will be exhibiting the new P25 Phase 2 TDMA analysis capability of its S412E LMR Master, as part of its portfolio of test solutions to address the key technologies associated with public safety networks – including LTE, narrowband and P25 – during IWCE 2013 in Las Vegas, March 11-15.
