Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, debuts a new line of semi-rigid test probes designed to assist in testing microwave circuits. By soldering the outer conductor to the signal ground and the exposed center conductor to the trace carrying the signal of interest, sampling measurements with these probes can be made without having to create a separate subassembly circuit board or add a connector to the circuit layout which can take up valuable real estate.
A 5G testbed in the Dutch province of North Groningen was officially launched on 9 June, when an international agreement was signed between the ten partner organizations who initiated the 5Groningen project.
Anritsu Co. announces its Signaling Tester MD8475A now supports 98 percent of conformance test cases (defined as EN16454) for emergency call (eCall) communications modules, expanding the company’s test solution portfolio for connected car designs.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced a Gen 3 PXIe chassis and set of Gen 3 system components designed for complex, high-performance applications. Doubling the system bandwidth, the new products improve data streaming for capture/playback applications, such as 5G and electronic warfare. The Gen 3 products also provide a superior platform for large multi-channel and multi-chassis PXIe test systems for applications, such as MIMO and PA/FEM.
Anritsu Co. announces it has met the GCF Test Platform Approval Criteria (TPAC) and its LTE-Advanced RF/RRM Conformance Test System (CTS) ME7873LA is the world’s first GCF-approved platform providing both RF and RRM TPACs for three downlink carrier aggregation (3DL CA) RF Conformance Tests. Anritsu holds the largest number of GCF TPACs for WI-231, enabling 3CC CA certification of devices for GCF. This leadership position was reached based on approvals gained at the recent CAG#46 meeting held April 26-27, 2016 in New Jersey.
The R&S TS8980 RF conformance test system from Rohde & Schwarz is claimed to have achieved the world's first validation for both LTE-Advanced uplink carrier aggregation and LTE-Advanced Pro uplink 64QAM.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate the latest design, simulation and test solutions for wireless communications and aerospace & defense at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS2016), Booth 1239, San Francisco, Calif., May 24-26.
