EB (Elektrobit Corp.) has introduced the EB Propsim F32 radio channel emulator for testing the performance of wireless networks, base stations, terminals and chipsets utilizing multi-antenna and multi-radio technologies.
Agilent Technologies Inc. and Centellax announced they have signed a definitive agreement for Agilent to acquire the assets of Centellax’s test and measurement business. Centellax, a privately held company, designs and manufactures key technology and products such as bit-error ratio testers and signal generators used for testing high-speed digital communication systems and components.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that the Agilent PXT wireless communications test set is now available for testing voice quality on Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) 4G phones with the Brüel & Kjær PULSE Audio Analyzer and Head and Torso Simulator (HATS).
Teseq Inc. now offers a new EMI receiver that reduces test time from hours to seconds and improves accuracy. The PMM 9010F is ideal for conducted and radiated emissions testing of appliances, power tools and machinery. This new EMI receiver is up to 300 times faster than the PMM 9010.
New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA) served as the host city for this years’ International CTIA WIRELESS® 2012 from May 8th through the 10th at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. This was the first post-Katrina return to the city that had been home to several past CTIA events and New Orleans welcomed the industry back with open arms, smoking hot music and spectacular dining. The event this year was held almost 6 weeks later than previous years in order to put some distance between the largest dedicated mobile-industry gathering in North America and its European counterpart, Mobile World Congress. I’m pleased to report that NOLA has come roaring back and is ready, willing and able to continue its legacy in hospitality, especially for an event the size of this one.
Azimuth announced its new Wi-Fi Performance Test Suite, the first component in the Azimuth Data Offload and Connectivity Solution Family. It provides an automated test plan for Wi-Fi performance and connectivity testing that exceeds the basics of Wi-Fi Alliance® certification testing.
Rohde & Schwarz has added three new options for its compact R&S DST200 RF diagnostic chamber: the R&S DST-B160 automated 3D positioner, the R&S DST-B210 cross-polarized test antenna and the R&S DST-B270 communications antenna. The new options significantly speed up precompliance testing of wireless devices, allowing automated test sequences to be performed on the lab bench so that developers no longer require constant access to large RF test chambers.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the Agilent U2020 X-series, the world’s fastest USB power sensors. With the peak and average power measurement capabilities of a power meter, these compact high-performance sensors allow engineers to test devices faster and with greater efficiency and accuracy.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a USB-powered, single-pole double-throw coaxial switch, operating from DC to 18 GHz. The first-to-market microwave switch driven by a USB port, the Agilent U1810B will provide system-design and manufacturing engineers a long-operating-life solution with convenient RF switching.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that its long-term relationship with AMCAD Engineering has been extended to include a technology partnership for services related to nonlinear design and measurement of new electronic devices.
